ALPHARETTA, GA. — May 25, 2021 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Halepuna Waikiki by Halekulani has expanded its existing relationship with Agilysys with the addition of its modern cloud-native SaaS food and beverage ordering solution, IG OnDemand.
A current user of Agilysys’ award-winning InfoGenesis POS, Halepuna again looked to Agilysys to meet their enhanced health and safety procedures for guest food & beverage ordering, including encouraging social distancing. IG OnDemand will allow guests to place food & beverage orders from anywhere using their own device – phone, tablet, laptop – and collect their order at the hotel’s grab-n-go counter, enjoying a contactless dining experience including payment. As a result, Halepuna can increase revenue opportunities while enhancing guest safety and service.

“When we looked for a way to extend our successful InfoGenesis POS solution with contactless guest self-service, Agilysys IG OnDemand was ready,” said Julie Arigo, the hotel’s general manager. “IG OnDemand will help us offer healthy and safe F&B services while encouraging social distancing to enhance the guest experience as well as optimize operations and increase F&B revenue.”
“We are excited about our expanding relationship with Halepuna Waikiki,” said Agilysys Senior Vice President, Product Engineering and Customer Support, Sridhar Laveti. “IG OnDemand will enhance the food & beverage contactless self-service guest experience for guests and staff. We are proud to be a partner of the hotel, and we look forward to helping facilitate a more efficient and seamless guest experience with our rapid product innovation and world class customer service.”
