"After an extensive search for a new inventory and procurement system, we determined that Eatec has all the features and functionality we require to handle our diverse dining scenarios,” said John Lyons, executive director of campus dining at the University of West Georgia. "The system interfaces to U.S. Foods, our largest vendor, as well as to our accounting and financial software system. Agilysys is also building an interface to our point-of-sale system so that we can import sales data for accurate inventory counts. Eatec will modernize our entire foodservice operation by streamlining the purchasing process, controlling inventory and managing overall costs.”
