Vanderbilt Selects Agilysys Inventory And Procurement System

Stocks in this article: AGYS

Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced that Vanderbilt Campus Dining, in Nashville, Tenn., has selected the Agilysys Eatec® inventory and procurement system to streamline foodservice operations in 19 locations at Vanderbilt University, including The Commons and Rand dining centers, multiple restaurants and cafés, and three retail markets.

"We selected the Eatec solution after an exhaustive search for an inventory and procurement system that not only would integrate with our varied restaurants but also with our different delivery methods of production and service," said Camp Howard, director of Vanderbilt Campus Dining. "Eatec allows us to accurately forecast and manage food costs in real time; and its two-way integration with our POS system provides real-time access to a complete P&L, from revenues to costs. The system also gives us the ability to make nutritional content and allergen restriction information available to our customers as well as track our sustainability performance. We look forward to taking advantage of Eatec's many features and to realizing the benefits of a more streamlined approach to dining operations here at Vanderbilt."

The Eatec solution is a Microsoft Windows®-based fully-featured inventory, procurement and production system designed specifically for the hospitality and foodservice industries. Along with its core purchasing, inventory, recipe, forecasting, production and sales analysis functions, the software also offers modules for catering, cycle planning, retail management and nutrition. The modular structure allows customers to construct the exact set of features they need — whether it is an enterprise-wide solution for multiple sites or a single-site system for multiple functions.

"An automated inventory and procurement system is an essential tool for higher education dining operations, where margins are tight and mistakes are costly," said Tony Ross, vice president of sales at Agilysys. "The Eatec solution, with its customizable modular structure, is ideal for colleges and universities of all sizes. It will allow Vanderbilt Campus Dining to streamline the purchasing process, control inventory and manage overall costs with real-time automated information. Its comprehensive reporting features will also enable the campus dining team to make more accurate and informed business decisions."
