Agilysys Announces Availability of Lodging Management System® v7.2

LMS v7.2 Includes Key Enhancements, Can be Viewed at HITEC 2013

Agilysys, Inc.

LMS v7.2 can be viewed at HITEC 2013 in Minneapolis, June 24-27.

LMS is a comprehensive property management solution that leverages web services to deliver maximum flexibility and ease of use. Recognized as the hospitality industry's most powerful and highly available property management system, the solution automates every aspect of hotel operations — from reservations and credit card processing to accounting and housekeeping. Its versatile foundation easily expands to incorporate modules for activities scheduling, attraction ticketing, food and beverage sales, online reservations, remote check in, spa scheduling and more. LMS also interfaces guest player accounts to the hotel booking engine for evaluating comp decisions.

The latest version of LMS builds on the success of the market-leading property management system, with enhancements based on customer recommendations as well as industry demands. A more streamlined approach to cashiering gives system administrators flexibility and peace of mind. Interface alert monitor capabilities offer real-time notification of interface errors so that problems can be resolved quickly and efficiently. And iPad® mobile digital devices provide a flexible check-in/check-out solution that enables properties to offer more dynamic guest service.

Other LMS v7.2 enhancements include:

  • Ability to view Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS checks posted to LMS via the InfoGenesis XML interface
  • New folio transfer options
  • Ability to attach bill codes to LMS meal plans
  • Additional guest search options
  • Passport scanning capability
  • Enhanced accounts receivable functionality
  • New reporting features

In addition, LMS v7.2 has a number of guest-oriented enhancements within the LMS ResNet online booking module. These include suggestive selling functionality, multiple room booking capabilities, web check-in improvements, a web check-out component and additional special request functionality.

"Agilysys continues to transform hotel technology with its latest version of the LMS property management system," said Michael Schubach, vice president of product management at Agilysys. "LMS has always set the property management bar high, with 24/7 reliability and a wide range of features and functionality. Now, this industry-leading system delivers even more powerful capabilities, with enhancements that enable hotels to streamline operations, provide service excellence, engage more fully in the guest experience and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
