Rivers Casino Selects Stratton Warren System from Agilysys
New Property to Implement Industry-Leading Inventory and Procurement Solution
The Stratton Warren System is a full-featured inventory and procurement solution that automates the entire procurement process — from food and beverage to general property materials — and provides a fast and measurable return on investment by reducing labor costs and waste and eliminating time-consuming and error-prone paper documents. SWS will enable Rivers Casino to obtain the best prices for goods and services and maximize purchasing power. The property will use the SWS inventory module to keep a current accounting of items in stock and reduce inventory carrying costs; the SWS purchasing module to improve accuracy in ordering; the SWS recipe & menu analysis module to refine menus and manage food and beverage costs; and the SWS barcode module to enable wireless data collection of inventory.
"Now, more than ever, hospitality venues need technology that helps them reduce costs and conserve resources," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. "The Stratton Warren System inventory and procurement solution will enable Rivers Casino to make intelligent purchasing decisions and work more efficiently. The solution will also help ensure the property's competitiveness by improving financial controls and allowing buyers to focus on the strategic elements of the procurement process."
Rivers Casino will be an exciting, world-class gaming and entertainment venue located on the northern shore of the Ohio River in Pittsburgh's Downtown River District. Scheduled to open in August 2009, the $780 million facility will feature 3,000 slot machines, four restaurants, live entertainment and a 1,000-seat amphitheatre. With its sleek façade of glass and metal, the property offers breathtaking views of the Ohio River. Future plans include the development of additional entertainment and dining venues, a 300-room hotel and a multi-purpose event room to accommodate 2,500 guests. Rivers Casino is owned and managed by Holdings Acquisition Co.
