BizCafe Update - We’re pleased to release a major update for BizCafe!
We take seriously our customers’ needs. To that end, we worked diligently to make this a full and complete update. From top to bottom, BizCafe has been reworked and what remains is all the strengths of the classic BizCafe but in a better interface, with stronger tools, and more creative options. We are confident that this major upgrade to BizCafe will deepen students’ understanding of business principles!
The following is a broad overview of the improvements we’ve made.

The most significant change made to BizCafe is a new user-friendly interface, with easier navigation and new features.
Complete redesign of the User Interface for a more contemporary look and feel, with increased usability and accessibility to reports.
Simulation Tour: a new simulation tour guides new users through the start up of the simulation, encouraging the best decisions.
Easier navigation: added sharp color contrasts for easier reading, reformatted main menu.
Improved accessibility navigation for users requiring screen readers.
Instructor messaging allows you to submit industry-wide or firm specific messages that will display on the simulation dashboard.
We’ve made additions and improvements to the creative options in BizCafe.
New Coffee Cup design under Creative: students can use our interface to design their brand of coffee cup.
New Café menu styles: students can pick their menu’s style.
Company Tagline: a new addition to give students the ability to brand their café.
Changes to the Newsletter: The newsletter has been broken up into two separate pages. Industry Menus shows their competitor’s menu, and Industry Brands where they can view the Ads, Logos, and Cups of their competitors.
Company Ads and Logos can now be uploaded to the website rather than requiring a 3rd party to host.
We’ve listened to our customers! In the Product Changes document, we list all of the changes to the simulation, but a few of the highlights are as follows:
Instructors have access to a Decision Log that tracks decisions by users.
Redesigned Dashboard that now shows multiple metrics at once, and industry news.
Alerts now show up in the interface to help guide students towards making complete decisions.
Simplified the hiring and firing process by making it so that students only have to specify the total number of staff of each type they want in the upcoming period.
The Coffee Calculator has been combined with Operation purchases on a new Weekly Purchases page to make ordering more efficient.
