Upscale Confectioner Implements Point-of-Sale,
Inventory and Procurement Solutions
CLEVELAND – Feb. 10, 2011 – Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced that Sugar Factory in Las Vegas has selected the InfoGenesis POS™ system and the Eatec® Solutions inventory and procurement system to streamline operations and enhance service at its two stores on the Las Vegas Strip. The company will also use the solutions at its new flagship retail store and 650-seat restaurant, both of which are opening in Las Vegas on March 4.
"We spent a lot of time comparing software systems for point-of-sale and inventory and procurement, and our criteria were very detailed,” said Sugar Factory Controller and Chief Financial Officer Tony Worsley. "We were impressed with the wide range of features found in the InfoGenesis and Eatec systems, particularly the openness of the solutions and their real-time reporting capabilities. These are robust systems with a long lifespan, and Sugar Factory will be able to use them well into the future."
The InfoGenesis POS system is an award-winning point-of-sale software solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. Designed for multi-unit operations common in hospitality environments, the system can manage any combination of dining, bar service and retail operations. Features include real-time reporting capabilities, packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture, multi-language capability and advanced sorting, filtering and grouping options.
Eatec Solutions is a full-featured inventory and procurement system designed especially for the foodservice and hospitality industries. Along with its core purchasing, inventory, recipe, forecasting, production and sales analysis functions, the system also offers modules for buffet management, catering, nutrition, retail management and cycle planning. The modular software structure enables 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. Eatec Solutions also offers more than 400 standard reports, which will allow Sugar Factory to make more informed and intelligent business decisions.
"The combination of the InfoGenesis POS system and the Eatec Solutions inventory and procurement system is ideal for properties that want to maximize profitability, maintain accurate inventory counts and reduce potential losses," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. "These solutions, which are among the most flexible and reliable on the market, will help ensure that Sugar Factory's three locations maintain a competitive edge and achieve that perfect balance between operational efficiency and guest service."
Sugar Factory has made confections a part of popular culture and turned sweets into the latest designer accessory. The company's signature 'Couture Pop' collections have already hit the red carpets in the hands of celebrities at major events in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Las Vegas. Kim Kardashian, the Pussycat Dolls and Britney Spears are now endorsing their very own Couture Pops and are just part of the buzz that has made Sugar Factory a staple in such national media as People, OK!, Us Weekly, In Touch Weekly, NBC’s 'Today Show' and more. Sugar Factory currently has stores in The Mirage Resort and Casino and Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Sugar Factory will open its flagship retail store and American Brasserie restaurant at Paris Las Vegas in March.
