LMS v7.1 Includes New Dynamic Packaging and Graphical User Interface
BOCA RATON, Fla. — June 17, 2008 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, including specifically-designed hospitality software solutions, is announcing the latest version of the Lodging Management System® (LMS) property management solution, which can be viewed at HITEC 2008 in Austin, Texas, June 16–19.
LMS v7.1 includes the following new key enhancements:
- Dynamic packages, which enable users to create packages ‘on the fly’ by selecting various components. It also allows users to select an existing pre-defined package and either add or remove components, thereby tailoring that package to the guest’s specifications.
- A new graphical user interface (GUI), which allows users to toggle between green screen and GUI, and includes command line access, buffering capabilities and the ability to type ahead and view reports on screen. These screen design improvements also extend to LMS ARTS®, an activities reservations tracking module that manages a hotel’s various venues and places canceled activities back into inventory for resale.
- An enhanced casino interface with new functionality that includes player card swipe for guest reservation search, comp posting reject log, expanded comp authorizer, player ranking for yield interface and the ability to link player offers to comp/rate plans directly on the rate availability screen.
In addition, Agilysys will be introducing the new LMS Guest Hub in conjunction with LMS v7.1, a centralized repository for guest profiles, including history, itineraries, interests and preferences. Users have the ability to set up and maintain a single guest master across multiple systems. This functionality is based on Guest 360°™ technology framework, the future strategy of Agilysys.
“We continue to invest in our industry-leading LMS property management solution with the latest version of the software,” said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. “This is a very flexible and scaleable system. LMS has historically set the reliability bar high. Now, with the addition of new guest-oriented features and functionality, LMS pairs that reliability with an enhanced guest experience.”
