Sands Bethlehem Event Center Selects Agilysys Point-of-Sale Solution

Stocks in this article: AGYS

ATLANTA, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced that Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa., has selected the Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system to streamline operations at the newly opened 3,000-seat entertainment venue.

"We had heard great things about the Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system, so when it came time to select a point-of-sale solution for our facility, it was on our short list," said Fran Volpe, general manager of Sands Bethlehem Event Center. "We particularly like the fact that it easily integrates with other solutions, including the player tracking system used by Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, as our facility will accept comp dollars from the casino. The system is also able to operate when one terminal is off-line or there is a loss of Internet connectivity, which is essential in our business. We have to deliver superior service to thousands of attendees for almost 200 events per year, so we need a system that is robust and reliable."

The Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system is an award-winning point-of-sale software solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. Designed for multi-unit operations common in hospitality environments, the system can manage any combination of dining, bar service and retail operations. Features include real-time reporting capabilities, packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture, multi-language capability and advanced sorting, filtering and grouping options.

"Entertainment venues are increasingly looking for ways to improve efficiency and productivity, and it begins with the right technology," said Jim Dennedy, president and CEO of Agilysys. "The Agilysys InfoGenesis POS system, which has a successful track record at many of the world's leading entertainment venues, offers a complete and integrated point-of-sale solution that not only streamlines operations, but also improves decision-making and incorporates best practices into daily activities. The system will help Sands Bethlehem Event Center operate at peak efficiency, capitalize on revenue opportunities and enhance guest service."

Sands Bethlehem Event Center is a 50,000 square foot luxury entertainment venue that will host A-list artist performances, comedians, internationally recognized DJs and sporting events, as well as conferences, trade shows and private functions. Features include a private mezzanine level and seven luxury suites with personalized bars, flat-screen televisions, high-top seating and fixed seating on a balcony with a breathtaking view. Vision Bar will offer a vibrant nightlife experience, with modern architecture, hundreds of LED lights, opulent finishes and interactive programming. Sands Bethlehem Event Center is owned and operated by Vision Entertainment Group in Allentown, Pa.
