Ithaca, New York: The CBORD Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that Texas A&M University in College Station, TX recently selected the company as its food service management technology provider. Texas A&M converted to the Foodservice Suite® modular software package on account of its flexible integration capabilities, user-friendly design, and superior client support.

Texas A&M uses Foodservice Suite to handle menu and recipe management and improve inventory control, reducing waste and increasing accuracy.

Both products are fully integrated with Foodservice Suite, allowing employees and customers alike to enjoy a seamless user experience with the most up-to-date information.

Foodservice Suite is a leader in the college and university marketplace for improving margins and increasing customer and employee satisfaction by automating campus food service operations. The scalable software package supports functionality for menu management, recipe scaling, nutritional analysis, inventory management, purchasing, and much more. Furthermore, the system’s tight integration with other CBORD® offerings, such as campus card systems, online ordering solutions, catering and event management software, and online nutritional analysis tools, makes it easy for universities to see the “big picture” of auxiliary operations.

Siddiqui, Executive Director, Dining Services.
