Partnership Rounds Out Agilysys` Tablet Portfolio
ATLANTA--(Business Wire)--
Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative retail
information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced it
has partnered with Motion Computing, the worldwide leader in rugged tablet PCs
and mobility solutions, to deliver comprehensive, best-in-class mobility
solutions to retailers utilizing Windows POS systems. 

"For the past two years, our company has been providing mobile solutions that
run on Apple iOS and Motorola Android platforms," said Aaron Hagler, vice
president, solutions delivery, Agilysys Retail Solutions Group. "Now, through
our partnership with Motion, we are excited to offer our customers cutting-edge
mobile POS solutions running on a Windows platform as well. Motion`s ruggedized
mobile technology and breadth of accessories are a great fit for our
retail-hardened solutions offerings and are an immediate fit to enable mobile
tablets for Windows-based store technology retailers." 

With the addition of Motion tablets, Agilysys` customers that use back-of-store,
Windows-based servers and applications can now seamlessly harness the benefits
of mobile POS functionality. "Additionally, since it is no longer necessary to
rewrite or modify server-side software applications, cost of entry is
substantially reduced and the speed of deployment is significantly increased,"
Hagler commented. 

Agilysys will be responsible for developing the tablet`s software, integrating
with legacy Windows applications, mobile infrastructure, staging, deployment and
ongoing management, support and service. 

"Motion is committed to aligning with industry-leading companies like Agilysys
to develop and deliver solutions that continue to define mobile computing," said
Grant Frederiksen, senior director, strategic corporate alliances, Motion
Computing. "We are looking forward to working together to provide innovative
solutions to Agilysys` retail customers. Agilysys` ability to provide
comprehensive one-stop shopping mobile solutions and services are a tremendous
value-add for retailers and to us."
