Congratulations to Dartmouth College, located in Hanover, NH, for taking first place in our 2017 Prodigy Award contest!
With the implementation of a variety of Computrition’s automation tools, Dartmouth College has upgraded the dining experience on campus, increasing efficiency in the kitchen, which has resulted in increased savings.
With the use of Epicure Digital Menu Boards integrated with Computrition’s solutions, Dartmouth displays real-time menu choices, allergen and nutritional information as well as religious classification to the patrons in their All-You-Care-To-Eat dining location. The use of automation as opposed to manually typed-out allergen information on the menus reduces the chance of typos and human error. The savings seen with the integration of Computrition and Epicure has been 40 administrative hours per week and approximately $75 per week in paper and toner supplies.
In Dartmouth’s retail café, their old menu boards only displayed pricing information. Now with the integration of Computrition’s Foodservice Operations Management (FOM) solution, they can effectively stream the information from the software system to the menu boards, featuring menu items, descriptions, pricing and nutritional information. The use of digital menu boards eliminates having the magnets on the existing updated, which cost $400 each for each update.
The use of ten computers in the production area of one dining location and tablets for inventory allows their production staff to update their post meal counts into the Computrition system, previously done at the administrative level, and to share Computrition reports, moving away from the use of paper production books, which resulted in a savings of four reams of paper per week and eight labor hours per week from filling binders. Instead of hand-writing the inventory and passing the information along for someone to input, they now enter the data live, which has made the inventory process go from monthly to weekly, allowing for tighter inventory control, more organized storage and product usage.
We are proud to see the efficiency gained and savings earned with the use of Computrition’s software solutions and are honored to distinguish Dartmouth College as our first-place winner!
Our 2nd place winner is…
Computrition awards the Prodigy’s second place winner to a 25-year veteran of the system, Palos Hospital located in Palos Heights, IL.
Kathy Kozar, who is the hospital’s Financial Analyst, was use to manually counting and doing tasks by hand and was skeptical of many new things. Over time, she saw the benefits Computrition has made with efficiency, allowing staff to dedicate their time where most needed. They have been able to streamline the management of inventory, building recipe files and monthly accounting.
Kathy managed to successfully keep the team on schedule through a full-scale renovation while at the same time implementing the new automation system such as Room Service, SuitePoint!, Payroll Deduct and KDS. They consider their new space and technology a huge benefit for patients and staff. They even found their customers love the information displayed by their most recent implementation of Nutrition Food Labeling (NFL). We congratulate Palos for the dedication put forth for a successful implementation.
Congratulations to our drawing winner Delaware Health and Social Services – Division of Public Health, enjoy your new Amazon Echo!
