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."

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
