USA, Alpharetta, Georgia. June 19, 2018

Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced the release of InfoGenesis® 4.5.0, the latest version of its award-winning point-of-sale solution. InfoGenesis® 4.5.0 provides a modern point-of-sale platform that reflects hospitality operators' growing focus on creating meaningful guest connections and experiences. In addition to increasing revenue opportunities and streamlining IT and operations, this new version has key new features designed to help drive greater guest satisfaction and loyalty.

The comprehensive InfoGenesis® point-of-sale system from Agilysys combines easy-to-use terminal and tablet touchscreen applications and industry-leading offline capabilities with rich configuration options and strong reporting and analysis features. Designed to serve guests more effectively, InfoGenesis® POS is easy to set up and maintain, making it the ideal system for hospitality organizations looking to enhance operational efficiency and increase profitability. The system easily manages any combination of food, beverage and retail services, and integrates with other Agilysys applications and a wide variety of third-party offerings. InfoGenesis® Flex, which offers full point-of-sale functionality on a convenient tablet device, provides a feature-rich mobile experience for poolside, casino floors, outdoor patios, convention floors, and other foodservice operations. InfoGenesis® POS and InfoGenesis® Flex are available as on-premises or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

"The point-of-sale experience is a critical part of delighting guests and meeting their expectations for reliable and easy interactions, making it critical for hospitality operators across the spectrum of casinos, hotels, restaurants and other venues to implement technology that helps them work smarter and more efficiently," said Michael Hinojosa, Senior Director of Product Management at Agilysys. "The latest version of the InfoGenesis® POS system will enable our customers to achieve maximum efficiency without compromising guest service consistency across the entire enterprise. Agilysys continues to expand its POS solution to more fully address customer needs, and this is another example of the effective and successful collaboration between our US and India development centers. We are excited to bring this state-of-the-art version to market."

The new InfoGenesis® 4.5.0 version provides a modern user interface with new themes, fonts and styles, enabling properties to reinforce their brand and complement the various atmospheres of their venues through the use of high-resolution images. These images also improve navigation through POS screens and increase employee learning curves.

In addition to the new look and feel, InfoGenesis® v4.5.0 includes other new enhancements, such as:

  • Properties can choose between Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2016 and leverage the database performance and security of SQL Server 2016. Support for the latest Microsoft technology results in faster, more secure and robust deployments, critical for the high-volume demands common to InfoGenesis® customers, such as casinos, stadiums, and resorts with tournaments, theater or concert venues.
  • New Dynamic Screen Management can save over 30% of menu management effort as new items automatically show up without additional screen management.
  • New Centralized Configuration Management is invaluable to enterprises wishing to centralize administration across disparate brands or across properties in different countries, as key system attributes and items can be captured in a master, or above-enterprise configuration and then automatically synched with distinct deployments as needed.
  • Greater global support via additional rich fiscal integrations and enhanced VAT reporting.

The vision for InfoGenesis® is to be in position to transform the hospitality guest experience at scale. Efforts are already underway on the development of exciting features that leverage the rich POS platform of InfoGenesis® 4.5.0, including the guest convenience of pay-at-table, a growing suite of POS mobility options for employees including smaller, integrated form factors, and new guest-facing and self-service mobile experiences.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
