Luxury Property Implements Point-of-Sale, Payment Gateway Solutions
ALPHARETTA, GA. — June 22, 2017 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu in Koloa, Hawaii, has selected a suite of software solutions — including InfoGenesis® POS, InfoGenesis® Flex and rGuest® Pay — to streamline food and beverage operations and enhance guest service at the 306-unit luxury property.
Koloa Landing Resort, located on the island of Kauai, hosts both business and leisure travelers and is a popular destination for meetings, weddings and other events. The property features a variety of deluxe accommodations, ranging from studios to four-bedroom villas, as well as a full-service spa, a signature poolside bar and grill, three lagoon pools, and 28,000 square feet of event space. The executive team wanted fully integrated point-of-sale and payment gateway technology that would optimize food and beverage delivery and reviewed a number of solutions before selecting the Agilysys suite.
“We wanted technology that would strengthen the property’s entire food and beverage operation, and the Agilysys solutions offered the functionality and flexibility we required,” said Erik Hosseinioun, project manager at Azul Hospitality Group, which manages Koloa Landing Resort. “The combination of InfoGenesis fixed and mobile POS solutions will enable us to offer a quality experience in a variety of settings, particularly poolside, while rGuest Pay will reduce the risks associated with credit card acceptance. Together, these solutions will streamline efficiency, increase revenue opportunities and enable the resort’s food and beverage staff to personalize their engagement with guests.”
Koloa Landing Resort is using the following Agilysys solutions:
- InfoGenesis POS ─ an award-winning, comprehensive point-of-sale system that combines easy-to-use terminal and tablet touchscreen applications with industry-leading offline capabilities. Designed for multi-unit and complex operations, InfoGenesis POS features real-time reporting, support for flexible menu types, and multi-language capabilities that drive service flexibility and increase operational efficiency. The system easily manages any combination of food, beverage and retail services, and integrates with other Agilysys applications and a wide variety of third-party offerings.
- InfoGenesis Flex ─ Agilysys' mobility solution that offers full point-of-sale functionality delivered on a convenient tablet device. InfoGenesis Flex provides signature capture, adaptable kitchen and receipt printing for large service areas, and a feature-rich mobile experience for foodservice operations. The solution is designed to keep revenue flowing in the most demanding high-volume environments, and its powerful offline capabilities ensure uninterrupted performance, even where Wi-Fi connectivity is inconsistent.
- rGuest Pay ─ the Agilysys payment gateway that enables complete and secure payment processing. rGuest Pay leverages one of the few payment offerings that includes: validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE), which securely encrypts cardholder data while drastically reducing annual PCI audit costs; a Payment Information Proxy (PIP) that secures data arriving via e-commerce interfaces; robust tokenization, which eliminates storage of cardholder data; and a full range of fixed and mobile EMV-ready payment devices that ensure compliance with new card security regulations.
“Our comprehensive and feature-rich point-of-sale and payment gateway solutions address some of the top concerns of food and beverage delivery — convenience, speed of service and security,” said Jan Larsen, senior director of product management and strategy at Agilysys. “InfoGenesis and InfoGenesis Flex combine comprehensive functionality with maximum flexibility to ensure fast and efficient service, while rGuest Pay safeguards sensitive guest cardholder data. This technology will work together to help Koloa Landing Resort streamline its F&B operation, maximize profitability and deliver world-class guest service.”
