Hotel Ella Selects InfoGenesis POS System from Agilysys

ALPHARETTA, GA. — Nov. 19, 2013 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software and services, today announced that Hotel Ella in Austin, Texas has selected the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to increase efficiency and enhance guest service at the 48-room luxury property. The hotel recently reopened following a multimillion dollar renovation.

"We selected the InfoGenesis POS system based on its features and functionality as well as its track record in the hospitality industry," said Steven Shotsberger, general manager at Hotel Ella. "We especially appreciate the system's reporting features, its ease of use and the ability it gives us to quickly modify menus and pricing. Implementing InfoGenesis as a subscription-based solution also made sense for us — no server or infrastructure hardware concerns and easy configuration. The Agilysys team has been very customer-focused, and support is only a phone call away. We are confident the solution will streamline our dining and banquet operations and help us deliver an exceptional guest experience."

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. It also integrates easily with other applications, such as gift card and guest management solutions. The system's detailed and high-quality reporting capabilities give insight into sales data and guest purchasing trends. Other features include packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture and multi-language capability. InfoGenesis POS is available as an on-premise or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.

"The InfoGenesis POS system is one of the most feature-rich and versatile point-of-sale solutions on the market, and SaaS delivery is particularly well suited to Hotel Ella's business model," said Tony Ross, vice president of sales for Agilysys. "The solution combines a wide range of capabilities with exceptional functionality, which will enable the property to simplify food and beverage operations, increase efficiency and capitalize on revenue opportunities. It also will help them deliver the five-star guest experience for which they are known."

Hotel Ella, located minutes away from downtown Austin, combines old-fashioned charm with modern comforts. Inhabiting the Goodall Wooten mansion, one of the city's original landmark estates, the property offers a world-class experience with 48 luxury guestrooms, a cabana-lined lap pool, a wrap-around veranda overlooking an expansive front lawn and exceptional dining.
