Sonesta Resorts St. Maarten expands use of Agilysys solutions

The Sonesta Resorts St. Maarten management team wanted a comprehensive inventory and procurement system that would streamline ordering and inventory management.

Sonesta Resorts St. Maarten and its management company The Maho Group have selected Agilysys Eatec to manage inventory and procurement operations at three all-inclusive properties — Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort, Casino & Spa; Sonesta Ocean Point Resort; and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa. The resorts are long-time users of the Agilysys Visual One property-management system.

The properties, which are popular destinations for weddings, corporate meetings and vacationing families, friends and couples, cater to a wide clientele and offer a variety of amenities. The management team wanted a comprehensive inventory and procurement system that would streamline ordering and inventory management, reduce costs and improve productivity. The Eatec solution met their criteria, with best-in-class features and functionality that will help food and beverage staff work smarter and more efficiently.

“We were immediately impressed by Eatec’s modular structure and uncomplicated user interface,” Huub Lambooy, director of technology for The Maho Group, said in a statement. “The system, although quite advanced, is easy to learn and easy to use. With this technology in place, we expect to gain better control of food costs, both in pricing and yields, and make more intelligent purchasing decisions. Agilysys has been a great partner for us, so we didn’t hesitate to work with them again. We are confident the Eatec system will streamline our food and beverage operations and help ensure our properties’ competitiveness by allowing purchasing staff to focus on the strategic elements of the procurement process.”
