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.

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.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
