University of Illinois Dining Selects RevenueVision®
Orlando, FL April 11, 2016-- The Solution Design Group, Inc. (SDG), is pleased to announce that The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has selected SDG's RevenueVision® solution, to streamline overall management and optimize performance for its dining operations.
Through the purchase of a campus wide subscription, the dining services department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will use RevenueVision® to manage internal and external contracts. Additionally, RevenueVision’s analytics tool will be used to centralize data from current and disparate systems, to create powerful business intelligence and dashboards to monitor key trends, comparisons, and KPIs.
According to Dawn Aubrey, Ph.D, MBA, FMP, CEC, CCA, Associate Director of Housing for Dining Services, and President of the National Association of College and University Food Services (NACUFS),”The aggregation of data provides a complete picture which is the basis for making good business decisions.”
“We are thrilled to add The University of Illinois to our growing client base. The dining operation at Illinois not only represents a significant contributor to the overall quality of student life at that campus, it involves a very large and complex enterprise of outlets with an operating budget exceeding $52MM annually. We believe that in addition to the streamlining of their contract management process, our analytics tool, in particular, will help to centralize data from disparate systems to easily and quickly provide actionable intelligence on key performance metrics. We understand that self-op dining operators have experienced challenges with current technology offerings and feel that RevenueVision® will serve as an ideal and powerful tool to mitigate those challenges. We look forward to working with Dawn and her team to quickly realize the benefits, and rapidly realize a return on their investment,” stated Tom Strange, President and CEO for The Solution Design Group.
