Since 1984, at more than 500 properties in over 50 countries, Adaco has served many of the world’s leading hotels, restaurants, banquet providers, schools, colleges and cruise lines by providing hospitality solutions that coordinate departments, automate time-intensive routines, and improve efficiency and accuracy – resulting in greater profits and productivity.

Adaco’s procurement software ensures the right item will be delivered to the right place at the right time and at the right price.  The products have been designed for single property and multiproperty establishments.

The company was formed in 1984 by Thomas Metzen and Patrick DiPronio, who left their positions at Marriott as senior managers to follow their vision and create software for the hospitality industry.  This software would monitor purchasing, inventory and operations, as well as procurement and reporting, enabling the industry to maximize profits and minimize losses.

In 1985, Adaco installed its first food and beverage management software at the Hotel Du Pont, which proved a huge success. Based on this experience, Adaco premiered its new software at the Atlanta HITEC show, in April 1986. The product found immense acceptance and was soon installed at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, the Doral Hotel in Miami Beach and the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.

Adaco achieved a major breakthrough in 1988 when Sheraton chose Adaco to be its corporate standard over 29 other purchasing and operational control systems. Since 1988, Adaco has accumulated a growing list of clients winning contracts with Marriott International, Hyatt Hotels, Four Seasons, Sheraton, Westin, Sandals International, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin and many others.

Adaco Eclipse™, the company’s flagship software, was designed to simplify centralized management of multiproperty hotel operations.   Its leading-edge technical platform includes purchasing, receiving, storeroom requisition, inventory control, operational control and analysis, recipe and beverage revenue enhancement, accounting and corporate management.

Adaco Emporium™ is a comprehensive retail software package that automates procurement, manages materials, analyzes profitability and much more.  The software monitors customer buying patterns to ensure the right buying decisions are made, eliminating costly and unnecessary hand-counts.  It is flexible and can be used with a variety of point-of-sale systems.

To ensure its clients realize the full potential of their investment, Adaco provides comprehensive hands-on support for all of its products.  Application support specialists work closely with every new client providing end-to-end support during planning, roll-out and daily operations.  Specialists are available to answer questions, provide practical answers and make sure implementation runs smoothly.

Adaco’s powerful suite of tools work to increase savings, efficiency and to drive bottom-line profits.  Many clients experience significant cost reductions, realizing annual savings of 2 percent to 6 percent over previous food and beverage expenditures.  In partnership with its clients, this powerful suite of tools has been instrumental in supporting the processing of over $5 billion in annual purchasing within the hospitality industry.

Adaco’s latest version of Eclipse, called Eclipse .NET, combines the power of Internet for ease of deployment and the power of client applications which offer rich user interface.  This product is built on Microsoft .NET™ architecture and takes very little bandwidth compared to RDP/Citrix-based solutions. 

Eclipse .Net will be demonstrated at the HITEC 2009.
