    Recognized as the hospitality industry's leading inventory and
procurement system, the MMS solution 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. With MMS, tasks
that once took hours or days can be completed with the click of a mouse,
enabling buyers to focus on the strategic elements of the purchasing process.
The scaleable software system includes modules for bar coding, inventory, menu
& recipe analysis, nutritional analysis, purchasing and retail.
    "In a highly competitive market like Macau, hotels that want to gain a
competitive advantage need technology that allows them to work smarter and
more efficiently," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general
manager, Agilysys Hospitality Solutions. "The Materials Management System
streamlines the entire inventory and procurement operation and enables buyers
to make more intelligent purchasing decisions. Hotels that use the system can
expect to conserve resources and increase profitability, both immediately and
in the long run."
