Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced the release of its Lodging Management System ® (LMS) property management system version 7.4.1. This version introduces several enhancements and new functionality, including a modern web-based user interface. The company is also launching rGuest® Book, a new web booking engine as well as rGuest® Express, a new self-service kiosk solution. These newly launched products will both tightly integrate with LMS 7.4.1, with integrations for rGuest Stay® and Visual One® property management systems to come later this year.

Agilysys LMS is recognized as one of the hospitality industry's premier property management solutions, with automation for every aspect of hotel operations, including reservations, credit card processing, accounting, housekeeping, activities scheduling, food and beverage sales, online reservations, remote check-in and more. Leading global properties rely on LMS's flexibility and ease of use to increase productivity, maximize revenue per guest and ensure repeat business.

This latest version of LMS brings new a new modern look-and feel and web-based user experience to its users. The new user experience expands on the existing web-based offerings such as the housekeeping and reporting modules that were introduced in LMS last year. The new version also brings enhancements to the system's rGuest Pay® integration, adding support for the Worldpay gateway solution and for the use of Givex gift cards. Integrations with rGuest Book and rGuest Express will allow operators to further enhance the guest experience at their property while generating more revenue opportunities.

rGuest Book is a commission-free, easy-to-use reservation system designed to move guests effortlessly through the booking process. The solution is cloud-based and fully responsive, bringing fast deployment and flexibility to operators. The tightly integrated solutions will make it easy for operators to access real-time room availability and will enable properties to sell to the last room and boost their revenue.

The rGuest Express self-service kiosk allows guests to check in and out themselves, bypassing the front desk entirely when needed. Guests can make their room selection choices and have their room key created directly at the kiosk, and the solution supports a variety of payment options. The kiosk is designed for flexibility and has a variety of settings to allow operators to adapt it to their preferred workflow.

"LMS has always set a high standard, with unparalleled reliability and a wide range of features and functionality," said Luke Pfeifer, Director of Product Management at Agilysys.

The new enhancements bring more revenue and guest experience driving modules to the system, while the increased ease-of-use will allow customers to focus their attention on the heart of their business."

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
