Alpharetta, Ga. — May, 8, 2019 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada, one of the largest nonprofit social service providers in the state, will implement Agilysys’ Eatec® inventory management solution, to modernize the procurement, storage and inventory operations of their extensive food and nutrition program.
The food services program at Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada provides nearly 2 million meals to vulnerable men, women and children each year. It includes a dining facility, serving an average of 700 meals a day, a grocery-style food pantry, providing more than 50 pounds of food to an average of 150 families in need daily, and a Meals on Wheels program, serving 2,125 seniors every day.
To help control the consistent flow of food products as well as purchases and inventory levels, the organization requires a robust solution that streamlines the purchasing process, controls inventory and reduces overall costs. Eatec was top of mind for VP of Food Services, Mike Schmit, who through his 20 years of experience managing F&B operations at Las Vegas casinos, was very familiar with the Eatec system and its successful reputation at restaurants and F&B outlets.
“We are proud that over 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to providing client services,” said Mike Schmit. “Eatec will help us be even more efficient and keep administrative costs lower. The more efficient we are at the operational level, the more resources we can devote to providing better assistance for the people we serve.”
Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada is one of the largest private social services providers in the State of Nevada, operating the largest shelter in Las Vegas with 524 beds, and a day shelter offering respite to 250 homeless men daily. Their food and nutrition program gives daily meals to people in need and a variety of supplemental food items like fresh produce, baked goods, boxed, canned and frozen goods, through their food pantry. The food items come from individual donations and are purchased through government grants.
“It’s rewarding to know that Eatec’s purpose goes beyond just helping businesses optimize their F&B operations, but also empowers organizations with important missions like Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada to operate efficiently and at their absolute best,” said Senior Director of Engineering at Agilysys, Max Romanenko. “With this solution, they can feed the greatest amount of people and provide vital services to those who need it most.”
