ALPHARETTA, GA. — Sept. 21, 2015 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that the company has been listed as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's Food & Beverage Point-of-Sale (POS) Solution Vendor Landscape report for its industry-leading InfoGenesis® POS system. Info-Tech Research Group's Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology industry. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offerings and their strategies for the enterprise, the reports acknowledge the contributions of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
Evaluations in the point-of-sale solution category ranked POS vendors and their products based on eight criteria ─ features, usability, affordability, architecture, viability, strategy, reach and channel. The report, which focuses on functionality and compatibility of POS software, includes vendors that offer broad capabilities across multiple platforms. Champions not only received high scores for most evaluation criteria but also offer excellent value, have a strong market presence and are typically industry trendsetters.
"The Agilysys InfoGenesis POS solution is a flexible and highly configurable point-of-sale system that offers very strong integration capabilities," said Larry Fretz, lead analyst for Info-Tech Research Group's Gaming & Hospitality Practice. "The solution is also able to meet the needs of single independent operators as well as those of large chains. It particularly excels in the casino hotel space, where Agilysys is a dominant player. By combining the Agilysys product suite with the InfoGenesis POS system, Agilysys has been able to build a large library of gaming integrations."
InfoGenesis POS is a comprehensive point-of-sale system that combines an easy-to-use terminal and tablet touchscreen application with industry-leading offline capabilities and enterprise-quality configuration and reporting functionality. It features real-time reporting, support for packages and prix fixe menus, and multi-language capabilities that drive service flexibility and increase operational efficiency. The system, which can be deployed on site or as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, easily manages any combination of food, beverage and retail service and integrates with other Agilysys next-generation solutions as well as a wide variety of third-party providers. InfoGenesis Flex offers full point-of-sale functionality delivered on state-of-the-art tablets, providing a feature-rich mobile experience for restaurant and foodservice operations.
"This latest report by Info-Tech Research Group underscores the importance of the point-of-sale system to the overall hospitality operation and provides helpful information to IT decision-makers as they select POS technology," said Jim Walker, vice president of sales and marketing at Agilysys. "The InfoGenesis POS solution, which is used by some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry, is one of the most versatile point-of-sale systems on the market. And now, with the release of InfoGenesis POS v4.4.7, the solution delivers even more powerful capabilities, including integration with rGuest Seat, Agilysys' innovative restaurant reservations and table management solution, and rGuest Analyze, Agilysys' robust business intelligence solution. These enhancements, along with other new features and functionality, enable hospitality venues to streamline food and beverage operations, capitalize on revenue opportunities and create lasting connections with guests that drive repeat business."
