World-Class Entertainment Venue Implements Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS System
ATLANTA — May 22, 2012 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced that Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa., has selected the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to streamline operations at the newly opened 3,000-seat entertainment venue.
"We had heard great things about the Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system, so when it came time to select a point-of-sale solution for our facility, it was on our short list," said Fran Volpe, general manager of Sands Bethlehem Event Center. "We particularly like the fact that it easily integrates with other solutions, including the player tracking system used by Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, as our facility will accept comp dollars from the casino. The system is also able to operate when one terminal is off-line or there is a loss of Internet connectivity, which is essential in our business. We have to deliver superior service to thousands of attendees for almost 200 events per year, so we need a system that is robust and reliable."
The Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system is an award-winning point-of-sale software solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. Designed for multi-unit operations common in hospitality environments, the system can manage any combination of dining, bar service and retail operations. Features include real-time reporting capabilities, packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture, multi-language capability and advanced sorting, filtering and grouping options.
"Entertainment venues are increasingly looking for ways to improve efficiency and productivity, and it begins with the right technology," said Jim Dennedy, president and CEO of Agilysys. "The Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system, which has a successful track record at many of the world's leading entertainment venues, offers a complete and integrated point-of-sale solution that not only streamlines operations, but also improves decision-making and incorporates best practices into daily activities. The system will help Sands Bethlehem Event Center operate at peak efficiency, capitalize on revenue opportunities and enhance guest service."
