01.13.2015 Clear Sky Software Helping to Reduce Costs & Labor at Hotel Nikko San Francisco

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – January 13, 2015 – Clear Sky Software, Inc.

Clear Sky Software, Inc. ® announced today that The Hotel Nikko San Francisco has implemented the company’s food & beverage inventory control system to help manage all food & beverage inventory. The Hotel Nikko selected Clear Sky Software and has been busy shifting control of F&B product inventory over to the Clear Sky system. Called Clear Sky FOOD & BEVERAGE, this is a comprehensive, perpetual inventory system that tracks and controls all F&B products. Functions include purchasing, receiving, outlet transfers/issues/returns and physical inventory. This luxury hotel took their implementation a step further wishing to take advantage of Clear Sky’s full suite of inventory tracking options. In addition to Clear Sky FOOD & BEVERAGE, Hotel Nikko installed Clear Sky’s KIOSK feature for increased tracking of F&B product movements and Clear Sky’s food vendor interfaces to include Sysco ® and US Foods ®. All of these software tools allow management at this busy hotel to report F&B costs by location, product, and product category and update food costs automatically through Clear Sky’s food vendor interfaces. Other features allow staff to report product fast-movers, slow- movers, cost variances, and order/vendor discrepancies. An expanded event management module is also part of the core system installed at Hotel Nikko. This bar code-based software, hardware, and services combination will ultimately help The Hotel Nikko manage their food & beverage inventory with greater efficiency while reducing F&B costs and labor.
