Agilysys, Inc., a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, announced the latest version of its award-winning Stratton Warren System (SWS) inventory and procurement solution. SWS v9.1 includes a number of innovative enhancements designed to boost efficiency, increase revenue and improve compliance.
Supporting a strategic procurement strategy, SWS is designed to improve productivity while reducing labor costs and waste. The system manages the entire inventory and procure-to-pay process, and integrates with leading financial and point-of-sale software products. It allows organizations to optimize their buying power by aggregating the purchasing of all departments and locations for mission-critical items, as well as for the hundreds of incidentals that add up to big dollars. Incorporating a full-function accounting backbone in an enterprise-wide paperless environment, SWS supports procurement e-commerce and eliminates time-consuming and error-prone paper documents. Optional modules include: barcoding; menu and recipe analysis; retail; and SWS Direct, a convenient and intuitive shopping cart experience. SWS can be deployed as either an on-premise or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.
SWS v9.1 includes the following key enhancements:
• One-click capability to ‘receive all’ purchase orders that arrive 100 percent complete
• Automatic item clean-up and purging
• Ability to attach and retrieve supporting bid documentation
• Notification emails for expiring bids
• Toggle sort view on bid dates
• Ability to add, modify and view internal notes during processing of warehouse requisitions
• Enhanced approval process to include ‘ASAP’ or ‘emergency’
• Enhanced compliance capabilities
“SWS has always been an industry leader, and now this made-for-hospitality solution helps casinos, hotels and other venues take inventory and procurement to a new level, streamlining the entire procurement process,” said Rehan Jaddi, senior vice president of customer support and service solutions at Agilysys. “SWS allows aggregation of purchases across departments and locations to lower costs, while helping purchasing staff make more intelligent decisions. We’re excited to bring this state-of-the-art version to market.”
