The Forbes Travel Guide 4 Star and AAA 4 Diamond rated Viejas Casino & Resort will open a new luxury tower called Willows Hotel & Spa on Thursday, February 1st, 2018.

The 159 all-suite tower will be an adults-only, tranquil retreat featuring the finest amenities including a lush new saltwater pool; a luxurious spa, salon, and fitness center; and three new restaurant concepts offering delectable fare.

The resort’s management team wanted point-of-sale technology that not only would deliver comprehensive functionality, but also could accommodate their growing need for mobile POS capability. Additionally, they required a payment gateway solution that would secure guests’ financial data and reduce the risks associated with credit card acceptance. The Agilysys solutions are an ideal fit, with features and functionality that will help the casino resort offer a quality experience in a variety of settings.

"With InfoGenesis, we have a flexible combination of fixed and mobile point-of-sale solutions that deliver comprehensive functionality,” said David Duran, Vice President of Food & Beverage for Viejas Casino & Resort. “The addition of this new tower with world-class amenities, depends upon the combination of InfoGenesis and rGuest Pay to provide us the tools to improve productivity and strengthen our F&B operations.”

InfoGenesis POS, a popular point-of-sale solution among luxury hotels and resorts, is a comprehensive POS system that combines easy-to-use terminal and tablet touchscreen applications with industry-leading offline capabilities. Its strong reporting and analytics features, enterprise-grade menu and item configuration capabilities, and multi-language support drive service flexibility and increased operational efficiency. InfoGenesis® Flex, which offers full point-of-sale functionality on a convenient tablet, provides a guest-centric feature-rich mobile experience for outdoor patios, poolside venues and other foodservice operations.

rGuest Pay is Agilysys’ payment gateway solution that enables complete and secure payment processing. It leverages one of the few payment offerings that includes: validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE), which securely encrypts cardholder data while drastically reducing annual PCI audit costs; a Payment Information Proxy (PIP) that secures data arriving via e-commerce interfaces; robust tokenization, which eliminates storage of cardholder data; and a full range of fixed and mobile EMV-ready payment devices that ensure compliance with new card security regulations.

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with Viejas Casino & Resort,” said Mike Hinojosa, Senior Director of Product Management at Agilysys. "InfoGenesis is one of the most powerful and dependable solutions on the market and we are confident in its ability to keep transactions flowing, while rGuest Pay safeguards sensitive guest financial data. Together, these two solutions will give the resort a competitive edge and ensure it is well positioned to deliver world-class guest service.”
