Agilysys launches enhanced systems

10 November 2006

BOCA RATON, Florida – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of enterprise computer solutions and hospitality software solutions, today introduced new enhancements to the Lodging Management System(R) (LMS), a property management solution, and the Materials Management System (MMS), an inventory and procurement solution. Three new innovations are an enhanced LMS ShowGate(R) module with a new Access Management feature, an updated LMS ARTS(R) module with an Event Management feature, and a new Hospitality BI Solution in conjunction with the Cognos 8 Business Intelligence tool for both LMS and/or MMS customers.

* LMS ShowGate module with Access Management allows easy validation and control of tickets at theater and showroom entry points. Using handheld scanners, barcodes can be read directly from issued tickets as well as from customers' home printers.

* LMS ARTS module with Event Management provides an industry first application for monitoring activity automatically for any promotional event. Event Management can track reservations, gift giveaways, record tournament scores and print leader sheets, rain checks and receipts while linking this information to casino player ID.

* Hospitality Business Intelligence Solution in conjunction with the Cognos 8 Business Intelligence tool helps properties leverage existing data, understand the "why" behind results, and make the right decisions in less time. This solution from Agilysys assists properties to better align staff with guest levels, to improve loyalty marketing programs so they sync up with customers' preferences, to track and manage total food and beverage spend and to access group and guest history real- time. Customized reports, alerts and executive dashboards enable properties to maximize profitability while enhancing the guest experience.

"Agilysys has a long track record of bringing state-of-the-art technology to hotels, casinos and resorts worldwide," said Tina Stehle, vice president and general manager, Agilysys. "We are excited to introduce the new LMS and MMS features, which will enable properties to streamline operations while enhancing guest satisfaction and ultimately increasing their profitability."

The LMS solution is an integrated property management solution that automates every aspect of hotel operations. It speeds check-in and check-out, links guests' gaming accounts to hotel accounts and tracks credit lines to optimize the guest experience and increase profitability. Its versatile foundation easily expands to incorporate modules for activities scheduling, attraction ticketing, online reservations, remote check-in/check-out, spa scheduling and more. The scaleable stable platform operates 24/7. The LMS solution also integrates seamlessly with existing applications to bridge multiple systems and create a cohesive network.

The MMS solution is a turnkey software solution that automates the entire inventory and procurement process. Recognized as the hospitality industry's leading inventory and procurement solution, the MMS solution integrates with all leading financial and point-of-sale products. The MMS Menu/Recipe Analysis module helps maintain cost control in the food and beverage area. Automatic costing of recipes based on receipts allows properties to determine exactly which items are most profitable. The MMS Retail module, which features full open-to-buy functionality, builds and maintains budgets, creates barcode tags and calculates sales prices.

Attendees may visit the Agilysys booth #3213 at the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant, November 11 - 14 in New York City and booth #335 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), November 14 - 16 in Las Vegas, NV to view the newest tools for the LMS and MMS solutions.
