Webinar to Address Benefits, Purchasing Considerations, Success Stories and More

ALPHARETTA, GA. — Oct. 15, 2015 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global  provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that it 
is partnering with hospitality benchmarking expert Jeff Zabin to deliver a webinar on selecting a next-generation property management system (PMS) on Tuesday, Oct. 20, from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST. The groundbreaking session will address how hotels, resorts and casinos can boost efficiency, enhance service and create loyalty with guest-facing next-generation technology.

Webinar speakers Jeff Zabin, chief executive officer of Starfleet Media and an expert on benchmarking best practices in hospitality technology, and Bob Shecterle, director of marketing at Agilysys, will discuss how next-generation solutions can help properties manage, track, measure, analyze and optimize the flow of information. They also will offer their perspectives on next-generation property management systems and share customer success stories that highlight the advantages and benefits of leading edge technology. 

"A hotel PMS should ensure that business operations run as efficiently and effectively as possible," said Zabin. "Most importantly, it should enhance the quality of the guest experience. Hotels, resorts and casinos are increasingly embracing the property management system as a strategic imperative. Yet, moving from an older PMS to a next-generation system can be a daunting task. In this webinar, we'll show hotels how to get from where they are now to where they want to be."

Webinar topics include:

  • Benefits of next-generation property management systems
  • Considerations that should influence the PMS purchasing decision
  • Maximizing the value of the PMS
  • How next-generation technology can help properties achieve their business objectives
  • Real-world customer success stories

"Hotels and resorts that want to compete effectively in today's business environment must automate their daily operations across multiple departments and functions," said Agilysys' Shecterle. "They also need visibility into all aspects of operational performance and guest experiences. All of this speaks to the need for a next-generation property management system. This webinar not only will discuss the latest industry research but also will give hotels practical advice on how to make an informed PMS buying decision and how to maximize the value of their PMS investment."
