Agilysys Eatec® System Streamlines Dining Operations in 19 Locations Across
ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(Business Wire)--
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." 

Vanderbilt Campus Dining is a non-profit university-managed auxiliary service
committed to providing value through high-quality, nutritious and diverse menu
options. Its culinary team consists of award-winning chefs, and its dining
program has garnered national recognition for excellence, including the
prestigious Ivy Award, which honors the best foodservice operations and
restaurants in the industry.
