Agilysys Software Systems Streamline Operations in 23 Locations Across Campus

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Agilysys, Inc. (NAS: AGYS) , a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software and services, today announced that Yale University, in New Haven, Conn., has selected the Agilysys Eatec® inventory and procurement system and the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to streamline its campus foodservice operations. Yale uses the solutions in 23 locations, including dining centers, cafés and retail markets.

"Agilysys understands the nuances of the higher education foodservice market, which is one of the many reasons we decided to partner with them," said Rafi Taherian, executive director of Yale Dining. "The Agilysys systems for point-of-sale and inventory and procurement are not only robust and reliable but also are fully integrated. Our dining outlets serve approximately 14,000 meals each day, so we needed powerful technology to handle that kind of volume. These solutions work together to give us greater visibility into our dining and financial operations. The Eatec system also allows us to track our sustainability performance, which is extremely important to us."

The Eatec solution 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.

The InfoGenesis POS system is an award-winning point-of-sale solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with a fast, intuitive and easy-to-use terminal application. The flexible system is easy to set up, and its scalable architecture enables customers to add workstations without having to build out expensive infrastructure. It also integrates easily with other applications, such as meal plan and gift card solutions. The system's detailed and high-quality reporting capabilities give insight into sales data and purchasing trends. Other features include package and prix fixe menus, signature capture and multi-language capability. InfoGenesis POS is available as an on-premise solution or through a subscription service.

"Higher education dining operations that want to operate efficiently and profitably require automated solutions for inventory and procurement and point-of-sale," said Tony Ross, vice president of sales at Agilysys. "The Eatec and InfoGenesis POS solutions are among the most reliable and flexible on the market. Best of all, the systems work together to offer a complete and fully integrated solution for managing foodservice operations. Their combined power will enable Yale Dining to proactively manage financials, conserve resources, reduce potential losses and provide more streamlined service to students, faculty and guests."

Yale Dining operates 23 residential and retail dining operations. It is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and has developed partnerships with other Yale entities, peer institutions, supply chains and local, regional and national sources to develop sustainability initiatives. Yale Dining has received national recognition for its foodservice operations and has won numerous awards, including Food Management's 'Best Concepts' Award, the prestigious National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS) 'Best in the Business' Award and the Loyal E. Horton Gold Award, which honors excellence in campus dining.
