Spooky Nook Sports Selects Comprehensive Suite from Agilysys to Streamline Operations, Enhance Guest Experience

Largest Indoor Sports Complex in North America Will Use Agilysys Solutions for Property Management, Point-of-Sale, Inventory and Procurement

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Spooky Nook Sports, in Manheim, Penn., has selected a comprehensive suite of Agilysys solutions to streamline efficiency and enhance guest service in its 700,00-square-foot sports facility and soon-to-open hotel and restaurant. Spooky Nook Sports, the largest indoor sports complex in North America and home to the U.S. Women's National Field Hockey Team, will use Agilysys solutions for property management, point-of-sale and inventory and procurement. The property's new 135-room hotel and 225-seat restaurant are scheduled to open this spring.

"The Agilysys suite will play an important role in our ability to manage our large and diverse operation — including a hotel, restaurant, bar, sports facility and retail outlet — and deliver an outstanding guest experience," said Mike Messina, general manager at Spooky Nook Sports. "I've successfully used the Agilysys solutions at other properties and particularly value their functionality and reporting features. In addition, with seamlessly integrated modules, data flow is fast and efficient, and the systems' ease of use minimizes staff training time. I'm confident that the benefits we will gain from deploying these solutions will streamline our entire operation and enhance our market position as a premier destination venue."

Spooky Nook Sports will use the following Agilysys software solutions:

  • Visual One™ PMS, a comprehensive and fully integrated property management system that offers a wide range of features and functionality, including front office operations, guest history, housekeeping, reservations management and more. Its user-friendly screens are laid out in a logical and understandable format with quick-feature icons and drag-and-drop capabilities. The software, which runs on a Microsoft® SQL Server® database, has optional modules for accounting, activities, club management, comp accounting, condo accounting, guest marketing, sales and catering, and spa management. 
  • InfoGenesis™ POS, an award-winning point-of-sale solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an easy-to-use touchscreen terminal application. Designed for multi-unit operations common in hospitality environments, the system can manage any combination of dining, bar service and retail operations. InfoGenesis POS features real-time reporting capabilities, packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture and multi-language capability. It interfaces with a wide range of host systems, such as gift card and guest management solution providers, and is available as an on-premise or hosted application. 
  • Eatec®, a full-featured inventory and procurement system designed specifically for the hospitality and foodservice industries. Along with its core purchasing, inventory, recipe, forecasting, production and sales analysis functions, the system also offers modules for buffet management, catering, cycle planning, nutrition and retail management. The modular structure allows customers to construct the exact set of features they need — whether it is an enterprise-wide solution for multiple sites or a single-site system for multiple functions. The solution also offers more than 400 standard reports, which enable purchasing staff to make more informed and intelligent business decisions.

"Hospitality venues that want to remain competitive must implement technology that not only enhances efficiency and productivity but also helps staff deliver outstanding guest service," said Michael Buckham-White, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Agilysys. "Our Visual One suite is ideal for small to mid-sized hotels that want a flexible yet fully integrated property management system, while the InfoGenesis POS and Eatec systems work together to offer a complete solution for managing food and beverage and retail operations. These systems address the entire guest lifecycle and will help the Spooky Nook Sports complex — including the venue's new hotel and restaurant — streamline operations, provide seamless service and create lasting connections with guests."
