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
"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
