"We needed technology designed to handle a busy hotel and casino operation, and the Agilysys solutions for property management, point-of-sale and inventory and procurement met all of our criteria," said Dominic Ortiz, chief financial officer for Prairie Band Casino & Resort. "These systems are known for 24/7 reliability, yet they are flexible enough to grow with our property and are easy to integrate with other applications we are using.

We are confident these solutions will maximize productivity and profitability while helping us deliver the high level of service our guests expect."
LMS is a comprehensive property management solution that leverages Web services to deliver maximum flexibility and ease of use. Recognized as one of the hospitality industry's most powerful and fully featured property management systems, LMS automates every aspect of hotel operations — from reservations and credit card processing to accounting and housekeeping. Its versatile foundation easily expands to incorporate modules for activities scheduling, attraction ticketing, food and beverage sales, online reservations and more. LMS also interfaces guest player accounts to the hotel booking engine for evaluating comp decisions.
InfoGenesis POS is an award-winning point-of-sale solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an intuitive and easy-to-use terminal application. The flexible system is easy to set up, and its scalable architecture enables customers to add workstations without having to build out expensive infrastructure. The software, which integrates easily with other applications, is designed to process transactions in the highest volume environments without any loss of performance at the point of sale. Rare offline capabilities allow the POS terminal to continue to perform well during intermittent server or network outages. Other features include packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture and multi-language capability. InfoGenesis Flex, which offers POS functionality on the Windows® 8 tablet, provides a feature-rich mobile experience for foodservice operations. InfoGenesis POS is available as an on-premise or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.
