The InterContinental Chicago O'Hare selects the Single Property Solution from Birch Street Systems to streamline purchasing and inventory control. One of Chicago's premiere hotels, the InterContinental Chicago O'Hare is the latest property to adopt Birch Street's Single Property Solution to manage critical hotel operations.
Birch Street's Single Property Solution is a comprehensive back-office business system built for the specific needs of the hospitality and food service industries. The system was designed to automate the Procure-to-Pay [P2P] cycle cutting inefficiencies out of the process while strengthening financial controls.
"We wanted to ensure our spend management controls were in place prior to opening our doors," says David Hall, CHA, general manager of InterContinental Chicago O'Hare. "Once I asked our other location, the InterContinental Chicago, about how they benefit from Birch Streets solutions, I knew I had to implement it here as well."
Birch Street's solutions are available for single-property, or enterprise-wide portfolios to help identify ways to leverage collective buying power. Their solutions provide a comprehensive tool to drive consistent business processes and financial control. Birch Street delivers its solution over the Internet, using the "Software as a Service" (SaaS) model, which reduces the total cost of ownership compared with the traditional method of buying and maintaining enterprise software.
