BirchStreet Procure-to-Pay Solution Selected by Baha Mar

Baha Mar has selected BirchStreet to provide its procure-to-pay solution for all properties and entities inside the resort.

Baha Mar is a new luxury $3.5 billion resort complex, which consists of five hotels – Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood at Baha Mar, Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar, Meliá at Baha Mar and SLS LUX at Baha Mar – and one of the Caribbean’s largest casinos with table games and slots. The property also boasts TPC at Baha Mar, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, ESPA spa, pools, many restaurants, luxury shops and beaches filled with activities.

Baha Mar selected BirchStreet’s eProcurement, AP Automation, Inventory Control and Recipe Management modules for a comprehensive solution to meet all their operations objectives. Included in the platform are BirchStreet’s cutting edge tools, Advanced Workflow Approvals and Checkbook Drilldown. Integrations to each hotel’s ERP or accounting system and POS systems will also be deployed. Due to all of the different ownerships and brands within Baha Mar, the resort created a shared services entity for this project. All of the hotels, casino, golf course, spa and restaurants will use the shared services to purchase their goods, ultimately to consolidate purchasing, gain better pricing and reduce freight charges to the island. Many of the business units will use Avendra, one of BirchStreet’s strategic partners and the largest supply chain and procurement services company in the hospitality sector.

Shared services are emerging as a new trend in hospitality, as businesses look to reduce their costs and increase their bottom line. Procure-to-pay technology proves to be at the forefront of this trend for improving back-office processes and reducing operational costs.

BirchStreet welcomes Baha Mar into its family of customers. BirchStreet looks forward to developing Baha Mar’s procure-to-pay system as they prepare for their upcoming opening launch, slated for late spring.
