New Installations at Two Prestigious Resorts

DataWorks, Inc., an industry leader in retail and food & beverage inventory control software, is excited to announce it has recently installed its premier inventory control product, NeXT, at two prestigious resort locations. “DataWorks’ NeXT made its debut at two prestigious properties in the third quarter of 2009. From implementing retail inventory management systems at the Aruba Marriott to supplying retail and spa operations software to Pala Casino in California -- DataWorks is busy and committed to making sure when counting counts, clients can count on DataWorks,” said Mark Cecil, President and CEO.

NeXT inventory software interfaced to the Micros® 9700 POS at both properties, which allowed for seamless communication between back-of-house operations and frontline guest services. Menu items can be ordered and tracked with one touch of a button, ensuring gifts and sundries are kept in stock and ready for sale.

Pala Casino has been a DataWorks retail software customer for the past nine years. The decision to upgrade to DataWorks’ NeXT inventory software was made earlier this year and was chosen to track inventory for the award-winning Pala Spa located at the Pala Casino property. NeXT interfaced to their Micros 9700 POS.

The Aruba Marriott has been a DataWorks customer since 2003. Choosing to upgrade to NeXT enables the Aruba Marriott to use the multi-currency and multi-language features in NeXT. They are utilizing the interface application developed and written by DataWorks that seamlessly updates retail inventory items and retrieves sales from the Micros 9700 POS.

“We are really excited that Aruba Marriott has chosen to continue its relationship with DataWorks and will use NeXT to drive their retail profits. NeXT was designed for the global market and Aruba Marriott will be able to use NeXT to the fullest in this regard,” said Matthew Kellas, Director of Implementations and Training for DataWorks.
