NEW YORK, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fourth, provider of a leading hospitality operations platform, will attend the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) in Houston, June 18-21, 2018.
As part of a continued effort to share hospitality best practices and operational efficiency strategies, Angela Hart, a Solutions Architect at Fourth, will deliver a tutorial on Wednesday, June 20 at 2:15pm.
Hart will present "Perfect Purchasing: Ensure the Right Price, Right Product, Right Vendor" a tutorial for hospitality leaders to learn more about the importance of a strong procurement process: choosing the right suppliers and providing the right products at the right price. The presentation will also address why having the right suppliers is vital to both commercial success and brand standards, and how to make sure your purchasing process is streamlined to ultimately drive profitability.
"Procurement is one of the most complex areas of hospitality. It's difficult to know exactly what products and how much you need and when you need it. Additionally, making sure you purchase from approved suppliers and only pay for what you order and receive adds to the challenge," says Hart. "Technology makes it easy to manage your procurement. By automating the entire process, you get the inventory you need in the right place at the right time at the agreed price."
The presentation comes on the heels of Fourth's recent product launch, introducing new solutions like Sentiment Analytics, POS Gateway and Third-Party Analytics. These new tools deliver measurable and actionable insights, helping operators make sense of their day-to-day operations and react quickly.
Fourth will be located at booth 1601, near the entrance of the exhibit hall, and will be showcasing its hospitality-specific platform – end-to-end Purchase-to-Pay, Inventory Management, Workforce Management and Analytics.
