ALPHARETTA, GA. — November 3, 2020 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Blue Water Resort & Casino has expanded its existing Agilysys relationship with the addition of Agilysys’ modern, cloud-native SaaS mobile guest self-service check-in/out solution, rGuest Express.
A longtime user of Agilysys’ industry-leading Visual One PMS, InfoGenesis POS, Agilysys Pay payment gateway and DataMagine document management solutions, Blue Water looked to Agilysys to help reduce lines at their front desk while ensuring a safe, contactless mobile check-in/out experience to streamline the guest journey. rGuest Express helps maintain social distancing and reduces direct contact while speeding guests on their way to enjoying everything the property has to offer. With rGuest Express, Blue Water is able to improve guest satisfaction, promote healthy practices and optimize operations across its properties. And when Blue Water is ready to adopt digital keys, rGuest Express is also ready with integration to popular electronic locks as well as mobile ID verification.
