Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that its industry-leading Lodging Management System (LMS™) property management solution is now available as a hosted solution. LMS, a longtime favorite PMS of the casino hotel industry, has recently been expanded to include a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering in addition to traditional on-site deployment. Key benefits of SaaS deployment include accelerated return on investment, more predictable IT costs, reduced security and compliance risk, and flexible growth.
Recognized as one of the hospitality industry's premier property management solutions, Agilysys LMS provides automation for every aspect of hotel operations, including reservations and credit card processing, accounting and housekeeping, sales and catering, activities scheduling, food and beverage sales, online reservations, remote check-in, spa scheduling and more. Leading global gaming properties rely on LMS's flexibility and ease of use to increase productivity, maximize revenue per guest and ensure repeat business.
The latest version of LMS builds on its success as a market-leading property management system, with enhancements based on customer recommendations, industry demands and future trends. It features rGuest® Analyze, the Agilysys business intelligence solution that provides insight into operational efficiency, highlights revenue opportunities and helps optimize business processes. With both rGuest Analyze and Agilysys Insight™ Mobile Manager, an innovative mobile dashboard solution that provides key information about the property from a tablet or mobile device, hotel managers have access to LMS data whenever and wherever they need it. Other enhancements include: point-to-point Encryption (P2PE) and tokenization support; expanded reservation entry and search capabilities; and advanced posting of nightly charges.
Key benefits of LMS SaaS include:
• Accelerated ROI. Properties can reduce staffing costs associated with traditional on-site PMS deployment, while getting advanced functionality faster than ever before.
• Predictable costs. With SaaS deployment, hotels no longer experience unexpected spikes in IT spending. Instead, they know exactly what costs will be today and well into the future, allowing them to plan for growth, even when technology is constantly changing.
• Reduced risk. SaaS delivery enables properties to leverage accredited professionals to reduce the burden of IT security and compliance and get seamless enhancements without the downtime often associated with upgrades.
• Flexible growth. LMS SaaS allows hotels to expand with the assurance that they are getting the most current functionality available.
• Enhanced guest service. With SaaS deployment, properties can free up valuable resources and focus on delivering optimal guest experiences.
"We are dedicated to delivering more powerful and flexible solutions to our LMS customers," said Rehan Jaddi, senior vice president of customer support & service solutions at Agilysys. "LMS has always set a high standard, with unparalleled reliability and a wide range of features and functionality. Now, with SaaS delivery, our industry-leading property management system continues to transform the hotel technology landscape with an easy-to-deploy solution that enables customers to lower costs, reduce overhead, tighten security and focus attention on creating lasting and meaningful connections with guests."
