ALPHARETTA, GA. — August 12, 2015 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that the company has been listed as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's Property Management Systems (PMS) Vendor Landscape report. Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offerings and their strategies for the enterprise, the reports pay tribute to the contributions of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
Evaluations in the property management system category ranked PMS vendors and their products based on seven criteria ─ features, usability, architecture, viability, strategy, reach and integration. Champions received high scores for most evaluation criteria and offer excellent value. They have a strong market presence and are usually the trendsetters for the industry. The report observed that "The property management system is the most critical piece of software in any hotel, but most organizations still base their selection on what their neighbors are using."
"Agilysys LMS is a true market incumbent that offers excellent casino management system integrations and solid vendor credentials," said Larry Fretz, lead analyst for Info-Tech Research Group's Gaming & Hospitality Practice. "If you operate a casino alongside the hotel, then your PMS must integrate with key casino solutions. LMS offers more than 200 interfaces for integration with various systems. It is also a comprehensive solution, automating the hotel operational process to enhance the overall guest experience."

"We are honored to have received recognition by Info-Tech Research Group for the LMS property management system," said Jim Walker, vice president of sales and marketing at Agilysys. "This research not only emphasizes the critical role of the property management system to the overall enterprise, but also provides a roadmap for IT decision-makers as they consider their PMS technology needs. LMS has always set a high standard, with unparalleled reliability and a robust set of features and functionality. Now, our industry-leading system delivers even more powerful capabilities, with enhancements that help properties streamline operations, boost efficiency and make more profit-driven decisions, all while creating lasting connections with guests."
