Norwalk, CT — June 4, 2013 — Adaco, a leader in cloud-based solutions for hospitality procurement, inventory and menu engineering, is pleased to announce that the success of Adaco.Net continues to accelerate.  The fully-integrated purchasing and operational control system has been selected for a number of properties with existing clients in recent months across the globe, including  Starwood Hotels, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Loews Hotels & Resorts, and Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts. 
New properties and clients going live with the solution include: Old Mill Inn, Etobicoke, Ontario; George Brown College, Toronto, Ontario; Geo Group, Boca Raton, Fla.; Couples Barbados, Couples Resorts, Jamaica; and The Jewel At Runaway Bay, St. Ann, Jamaica.
  • Old Mill Inn is an exclusive luxury Toronto hotel with 57 beautifully appointed and individually unique hotel rooms and suites. Nestled in the beautiful Humber Valley and adjacent to the Parkland and Toronto Bike & Walking Trail System, the ideal location invites you to escape the Ordinary. The Old Mill Inn operates one of the top restaurants in Toronto with a large banquet operations, one of the most popular wedding spots in the Toronto area.
  • The George Brown College Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts in Toronto is the icon of hospitality management and culinary arts training in Canada.  Beyond the classroom students get a chance to work while serving customers in their fully functioning restaurant, The Chefs’ House. 
  • The Geo Group, Inc. (GEO) is the world's leading provider of correctional, detention, and community re-entry services with 96 facilities, approximately 72,000 beds, and 18,000 employees around the globe. GEO's facilities are located in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa.  GEO has 38 food service facilities and over 50 facilities with maintenance requirements.  With over 800 menus and revolving meal days they will utilize all facets of the Recipe and Event features in our system. 
  • Couples Resorts’ founder Abe Issa opened Jamaica’s first year-round resort—Tower Isle Hotel—in 1949. In 1978, he pioneered the all-inclusive concept for couples to the island—blending luxury, romance and value under one roof. Named Couples Ocho Rios, it served as the corner stone for building the Couples Resorts brand. Aptly dubbed “The Father of Jamaican Tourism,” Abe understood the importance of creating resorts as luxurious as they are authentic. By intertwining local Caribbean culture, spectacular natural settings and first-rate amenities, he achieved an undeniably successful combination. Today, Couples Resorts proudly owns and operates five all-inclusive luxury boutique resorts in the Caribbean-four in Jamaica and one in Barbados. Embracing a casual yet chic style infused with pure Jamaican island, each one offers a genuine, intimate and truly memorable experience.
The Couples Barbados is the 5th hotel to be added to the Couples multi-property environment.  The ability to rapidly deploy the solution is critical in the Caribbean and allows for Couples to utilize its staff across properties to manage the daily needs of purchasing and inventory control.
  • The Jewel brand is owned by Aimbridge Hospitality of Dallas, Texas.  The Jewel at Dunn’s River was the first Jewel to open in 2011.  The Jewel at Runaway Bay is the second resort added and created the need to move from a single property to a multiple property environment.
With a 27 year history, Adaco has an excellent reputation in the hotel sector as a global provider of purchasing and operation control solution, with Adaco .NET software currently processing more than $5 billion worth of purchasing annually. Acquired in 2012 by Fourth, a London-based provider of labor, payroll, inventory and procurement systems; including Procure-to-Pay.
