touchscreen terminal application. Designed specifically for hospitality

retail operations. InfoGenesis POS features real-time reporting capabilities,
packages and prix fixe menus, multi-language capability and advanced sorting,
filtering and grouping options. It interfaces with a wide range of host systems,
such as gift card and guest management solution providers, and is available as

"Resorts and other hospitality venues require technology that improves
efficiency, particularly in the food and beverage and retail areas," said Jim
Dennedy, president and chief executive officer of Agilysys. "InfoGenesis POS has
an exceptional track record at properties around the world and is ideally suited
