Las Vegas Casino Selects BirchStreet Procure-to-Pay Solution
Newport Beach, CA. October 29, 2013 – BirchStreet Systems, the leader in procure-to-pay cloud-based software solutions for the hospitality industry, was selected as the solution provider for the Downtown Grand Las Vegas. Slated to open on November 12, 2013 (11/12/13), the Downtown Grand Las Vegas will open its doors and show off its new sophisticated, stylish, industrial chic décor. The Downtown Grand strategically selected BirchStreet Systems for its full procure-to-pay (P2P) cloud technology platform, including eProcurement, Checkbook Drilldown, Advanced Approvals Workflow, Accounts Payable Automation, Inventory Control and Recipe Management modules. Although BirchStreet is the leading P2P provider in the hospitality industry, the Downtown Grand Hotel will be its first casino client.
Casinos, especially in the large casino markets like Las Vegas, represent a strategic growth opportunity for BirchStreet. BirchStreet will be deploying sales and operational resources in 2014. While casinos are inherently more complex than a non-casino hotel operation, BirchStreet has 100% of the core P2P modules and services in place today to support this growth. The Downtown Grand is an Avendra client, one of BirchStreet’s strategic group purchasing organization partners, which will further streamline Downtown Grand’s back-end processes. BirchStreet is very proud to welcome the Downtown Grand to its client roster.
Downtown Grand Las Vegas has performed a complete renovation and rebranding of the former Lady Luck. The new hotel offers 634 trendy hotel rooms, nearly 600 slot machines and 30 table games, and 17 different restaurants and bars, including Picnic, an urban rooftop pool retreat. Charlie Goh, Vice President of Finance for Downtown Grand, wanted to make sure the hotel and casino had a state-of-the-art purchasing and tracking system in place to not only easily connect with over 200,000 suppliers, but to streamline purchasing, create visibility, compliance and maximize efficiency while keeping costs down.
In addition, the BirchStreet platform will help Downtown Grand allow for different levels of routing and approval of purchase orders with Advance Approvals Workflow and the Checkbook Drilldown to create line item details and instant business intelligence. Selecting the AP Automation module with three-way auto-matching will ensure compliance and proper approvals. The Inventory Control module will also be implemented for automated, efficient and accurate supplies counts and purchasing. Finally, the Recipe Management module will connect all 17 restaurants and bars to have consistent recipes with complete nutritional data. It will also make sure that food costs will be accurate with up-to-date pricing, which will help control margins with real time data. Each component – separately and together – will ensure smooth operations, clarity and efficiency to benefit Downtown Grand and their guests.
