ITHACA, N.Y., April 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The CBORD Group, Inc., the leading provider of food management and cashless card systems to healthcare facilities and colleges and universities, is pleased to announce the release of CBORD® C-Store™, a web-based inventory management solution for retail operations. By integrating point-of-sale (POS) and automated inventory data, the solution empowers retail managers to effectively manage real-time inventories, improving efficiency, customer satisfaction, and boosting profits.  

"CBORD C-Store will improve our speed and accuracy by giving us a single point of data entry to update both Foodservice Suite® and MICROS®," said Merelene Stanley, Coordinator for Dining Services Technology & Performance, Housing & Dining Services, University of Colorado at Boulder. "It will make it easier to add new products, monitor our actual inventory levels, and give our financial team fresh data for audits. CBORD C-Store will provide great value by automating formerly time-consuming and error-prone practices, letting us spend our time on more mission-critical activities."

CBORD C-Store seamlessly integrates MICROS point-of-sale data with real-time item inventory levels from CBORD's widely used Foodservice Suite, putting a wide range of essential, integrated information at a manager's fingertips. With broad support for vendor product catalogues, price updates, and electronic order transmission, the system makes it easy to stay on top of back- and front-of-house operations. Its scalable nature empowers managers to oversee the operations of a single store, large campus-wide deployments, and everything in between. The first release of CBORD C- Store integrates with the MICROS 3700 POS system.

"CBORD C-Store is a scalable, easy-to-use retail solution that provides real-time information to help managers run their operations efficiently and cost effectively," said Read Winkelman, Vice President of Sales, The CBORD Group, Inc. "We gathered detailed customer requirements throughout the product's development process, and this has resulted in a truly unique solution, tailored for retail environments in the healthcare and education communities."
