(Bonita Springs, FL – April 11, 2011) DataWorks, Inc. is pleased to announce Sodexo, Inc., a leading provider of Comprehensive Service Solutions, has chosen NeXT® as their inventory control software for Re:sourxe by Sodexo, their North American healthcare retail initiative. Sodexo developed Re:sourxe to provide hospitals with a full-service retail consumer engagement platform, including retail stores onsite at hospitals. Sodexo’s retail platform features relevant products to meet the needs of employees, patients, and visitors. Guy Ardizoni, VP of Sales and Marketing for DataWorks, said that NeXT was selected for its enterprise inventory management system. NeXT is a scalable solution that will grow with Sodexo’s evolving needs, and includes multi-store service location management with individual and consolidated reporting. Yet it is controlled from one central location. This allows for more functionality at the store level, as well as streamlined communication between the facilities’ management sites.
“We are delighted to become a part of Sodexo’s retail efforts in healthcare and look forward to assisting them as they create an efficiently run retail operation,” said Mark Cecil, DataWorks President and CEO. “They are such an impressive and well-run company that we feel honored to be part of this initiative. Communications at all levels have to be clear, and information has to be passed along quickly in the retail environment; that’s where our decades of expertise come in to play. We are thrilled to have been chosen as the vendor of choice.”
Sodexo will be able to utilize NeXT as a central point of inventory management, where multiple locations and departments can control inventory for a specific store, while the finance department can obtain a global picture of the company’s inventory, sales and purchases in real-time.
