ALPHARETTA, GA. — June 25, 2014 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that HotelWorks Development has selected the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to streamline operations and enhance guest service at its new Malana Hotel brand. The first property to use the point-of-sale solution will be the Malana Hotel & Suites in Cotulla, Texas, scheduled to open this summer.
"The Malana brand is all about personalized service, so we wanted software that would facilitate and enhance the guest experience," said Bob Zachariah, president and chief executive officer of HotelWorks Development, which owns and manages Malana Hotels & Suites. "The InfoGenesis POS system combines an intuitive user interface with powerful reporting and configuration tools, which will enable us to provide exceptional guest service. The system is also easy to integrate with other applications, and its scalability will allow us to expand to other prototypes with food and beverage differentiator options. We look forward to working with Agilysys as we embark on the opening of this innovative new brand."
InfoGenesis POS is an award-winning point-of-sale solution designed to serve guests more effectively while enhancing efficiency and profitability. 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.
