Agilysys Software Solutions Gain Momentum in U.S. Healthcare Market

Healthcare Providers of all Sizes Rely on Agilysys Systems for Point-of-Sale, Inventory and Procurement, Document Management and Self-Service

Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software, services and solutions, continues to expand its footprint in the U.S. healthcare market. Hospitals and other healthcare providers in almost every state, ranging in size from large multi-facility systems to single freestanding hospitals, use Agilysys solutions for point-of-sale, inventory and procurement, document management and self-service to enhance productivity and profitability.

"The Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS system helps maximize revenue generation and increase efficiency across our entire retail operation," said Joe Mazza, IT systems consultant for Banner Health in Phoenix, which uses the point-of-sale solution in 15 cafeteria locations. "The system's reporting and auditing capabilities ensure accurate tracking of our sales and product mix, and the flexibility of the application enables us to tailor it to meet the needs of each location. If we run into a problem, the Agilysys support team is always available and ready to help. With the InfoGenesis POS system in place, we are able to gain control over our day-to-day business operations while meeting and exceeding customer expectations."

InfoGenesis POS is an award-winning point-of-sale solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with a fast, intuitive and easy-to-use terminal application. The flexible system is easy to set up, and its scalable architecture enables customers to add workstations without having to build out expensive infrastructure. It also integrates easily with other applications. The software's detailed and high-quality reporting capabilities give insight into sales data and purchasing trends. InfoGenesis POS is available as an on-premise solution or through a subscription service.

"We have been a long-time Agilysys customer and are pleased with the products and support the company provides," said Don Smith, system director of Food, Nutrition and Retail Services at Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio, which uses the InfoGenesis POS system and the Agilysys Eatec® inventory and procurement solution. "These software solutions streamline efficiency and help us control costs in our food outlets and gift shops. We particularly like the openness of the systems, their real-time reporting features and the wide range of capabilities they offer. This technology has helped us conserve resources, maximize profitability and deliver outstanding service to staff and visitors alike."

The Eatec solution is a Microsoft® Windows®-based full-featured inventory, procurement and production system designed specifically for the hospitality and foodservice industries. Along with its core purchasing, inventory, recipe, forecasting, production and sales analysis functions, the software also offers modules for catering, cycle planning, retail management and nutrition. The modular structure allows customers to construct the exact set of features they need — whether it is an enterprise-wide solution for multiple sites or a single-site system for multiple functions.

In addition to the InfoGenesis POS and the Eatec inventory and procurement systems, Agilysys offers several other software solutions for the hospital and healthcare industry, including: Agilysys DataMagine™, a comprehensive document management suite; Agilysys eCash, a cashless payment application; and Agilysys eMenu, an online ordering solution.

"Healthcare providers increasingly require technology that enables staff to work more efficiently, particularly in the foodservice and retail areas," said Tony Ross, vice president of sales at Agilysys. "Our industry-leading software solutions maximize productivity while helping to improve the bottom line. We are pleased to partner with hospitals and other healthcare providers throughout the nation and look forward to working with them for many years to come."
