ALPHARETTA, GA. — Jan. 29, 2015 — Agilysys, Inc.

"First and foremost, we wanted a solution that would help us reduce costs and conserve resources. We also wanted a system that would help us work more efficiently. And, we wanted technology that would enable us to make more intelligent purchasing decisions. We are confident the Stratton Warren System will meet this criteria and help ensure our property's competitiveness by allowing our purchasing staff to focus on the strategic elements of the procurement process."
