Industry-Leading Property Management System Extends Payment Compatibility
ALPHARETTA, GA. — January 30, 2018 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced general availability of its Lodging Management System® (LMS) version 7.3.6 for those customer that are not ready to move to LMS 7.4. This version includes several enhancements for payment options, such as support for rGuest® Pay Connect and rGuest® Pay iFrame.
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 and credit card processing, accounting and housekeeping, activities scheduling, food and beverage sales, online reservations, remote check-in and more. Designed to help gaming resorts and hotels grow revenue opportunities with upsell automation, LMS helps operators make lasting connections that enhance guest satisfaction and boost efficiency of staff and operational workflows. Leading properties around the world rely on LMS's flexibility and ease of use to increase productivity, maximize revenue per guest and help drive repeat business.
The added support for rGuest Pay Connect in the 7.3.6 version of LMS enables customers who desire to use Elavon payment gateway services, including Elavon Fusebox and Elavon Simplify, to support card processing with EMV. In addition, LMS supports rGuest Pay iFrame, which allows customers to accept credit cards securely through ResNet, enabling them to take payments for guarantees and deposits. Using the new rGuest Pay iFrame technology, the customer data is completely secure, and credit card information never enters the property’s network.
“This latest version of LMS reflects our commitment to deliver increasingly powerful and more flexible solutions to our customers,” said Eileen Bennett, Director of Product Engineering at Agilysys. “With the new integrations, customers can extend their use of the system and securely accept payments in a number of new ways. LMS is known for its unparalleled reliability and its wide range of features and functionality, and these powerful new capabilities will allow customers to further streamline operations and boost efficiency, all while delighting guests and building passionate guest loyalty.”
The newest version of the system is LMS 7.4, which was released during G2E in October of 2017. It includes additional capabilities such as pre-check-in, mobile check-out, mobile housekeeping, as well as rGuest Seat dining reservations.
