SUNY Cobleskill Auxiliary Services Implements Agilysys Solutions to Improve Operations, Enhance Guest Service

Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq:AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software and services, today announced that SUNY Cobleskill Auxiliary Services in Cobleskill, NY, has selected the Agilysys Eatec® inventory and procurement system and the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to streamline its foodservice operations. SUNY Cobleskill, part of the State University of New York system, has nine campus dining facilities that serve more than 3,500 meals each day.

The Agilysys Eatec and InfoGenesis POS systems work together to offer a complete and fully integrated solution for managing foodservice operations. Their combined power enables campus dining operations to proactively manage financials, conserve resources, reduce potential losses and provide more streamlined service. The InfoGenesis POS system also integrates fully with the CardSmith campus card transaction processing system used by SUNY Cobleskill, resulting in a Web-enabled meal plan and campus card processing solution that delivers a seamless customer experience.

"We did our due diligence when searching for new software systems for our dining operations and found that Agilysys had exactly the solution set we were looking for," said Brian Marhaver, executive director for Cobleskill Auxiliary Services. "The Eatec system, in addition to helping reduce costs and control inventory, also allows us to track sustainability performance, which is very important to us. And the InfoGenesis POS solution, with its integration with CardSmith's meal plan system, helps us streamline efficiency, enhance profitability and deliver a higher level of customer satisfaction."

Agilysys Eatec is a Microsoft® Windows®-based full-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, nutrition and allergens. 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.

InfoGenesis POS is an award-winning point-of-sale solution designed to serve guests more effectively while enhancing efficiency and profitability. The flexible system is easy to set up, and its scalable architecture enables customers to add workstations without having to build out expensive infrastructure. The software, which integrates easily with other applications, is designed to process transactions in the highest volume environments without any loss of performance at the point of sale. Rare offline capabilities allow the POS terminal to continue to perform well during intermittent server or network outages. Other features include packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture and multi-language capability.

"Today's diverse campus dining operations call for powerful and comprehensive solutions for inventory and procurement and point-of-sale," said Tony Ross, vice president of sales at Agilysys. "The Eatec and InfoGenesis systems not only are robust and reliable but also fully integrated, with a proven record of success across multiple cost centers. These solutions will work together to help SUNY Cobleskill manage costs, control inventory and gain greater visibility into its dining and financial operations. The solutions also will facilitate lasting connections with students, parents, faculty and alumni by allowing the college to focus its efforts on providing exceptional service."

SUNY Cobleskill Auxiliary Services (CAS) is a non-profit corporation committed to delivering quality services at competitive prices to the SUNY Cobleskill campus community, including a dining services program, vending and laundry program and student ID cards. CAS Dining Services, which offers broad and varied menu choices in nine dining locations, supports sustainability and green initiatives through energy and water conservation, recycling efforts and support of local farmers. CAS Dining Services also gives back to its community through food donations to local schools and senior centers, participation in the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner and support of the Employment Training in the Community Program.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

The material was delivered interac...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
