(Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Campus has implemented the Agilysys InfoGenesis ecosystem of modern cloud-native SaaS POS solutions for its campus dining including InfoGenesis POS, IG Buy self-service kiosks, IG OnDemand mobile ordering and payment, and Agilysys Pay for secure payment processing.
The University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center is one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers, integrating pioneering biomedical research with exceptional clinical care and education.

Located in Dallas, Texas, the center has over 18,000 employees and 2,445 faculty, and over 2.7 million outpatient visits per year. UT Southwestern is the largest medical school in the University of Texas System and the state of Texas.
When electing to replace their existing campus POS systems, UTSW looked to their successful established relationships with Sodexo and Agilysys to leverage the solutions and relationships currently in use in their Healthcare cafeterias. With the added challenges presented by the pandemic, they also needed to expand beyond traditional POS by adding contactless self-service F&B ordering and payment options. Agilysys stood out with a comprehensive proven SaaS product set that included the InfoGenesis SaaS POS system complemented by innovative, modern cloud-native self-service ordering and payment options: IG Buy and IG OnDemand, bolstered by Agilysys’ continuing commitment to robust and ongoing product R&D.
“UTSW Medical Center is excited to expand our relationship with Agilysys,” said Rick Stewart, ARG Operations manager at UTSW. “Their ability to provide the flexible, industry-leading POS solutions we need to meet our requirements across all of our dining services while protecting the health and safety of our campus students, faculty and guests is a winning combination.”
“Sodexo, UTSW and Agilysys are growing our strong collaboration, and we are thrilled to add their campus dining sites to our existing relationship,” said Don DeMarinis, SVP Sales & Marketing, Americas at Agilysys. “InfoGenesis POS solutions are uniquely positioned to address the range of deployment options that UTSW demands.”
