Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software and services, today introduced Agilysys Analytics v2.0, a made-for-hospitality business intelligence solution that consolidates data across disparate systems and multiple locations into a single integrated source for comprehensive reporting, auditing and predictive analysis. The solution can be seen at HITEC 2014 in Los Angeles.
Available as a subscription service, Agilysys Analytics requires no software installation other than a web browser. Users can pull critical reports and make up-to-the-minute decisions anytime and anywhere via a convenient mobile interface, initially available for the Apple iPad®.
Agilysys Analytics addresses the growing requirement for hospitality providers to leverage data as one of their most important business assets. The solution identifies industry trends, improves business processes and uncovers risk areas that might otherwise go unchecked. It also removes the multitude of manual reports and spreadsheets from the organization, many of which contain errors, omissions or duplicate information. Reports are up-to-date and can be saved as private or public or published as a dashboard for review by others.
Other features of Agilysys Analytics 2.0 include:
- Cross-enterprise reporting
- Slice-and-dice reports from check sales, discounts, item sales and tenders data
- Report sharing, emailing, exporting and printing
- Ad-hoc and scheduled reports
- Web-based drag-and-drop user interface
- Visual representations of data with easy-to-read charts, graphs and customizable dashboards
- Mobile device support
Agilysys Analytics initially is available to InfoGenesis™ POS hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) customers and has been optimized for use by single-pass managed foodservice providers. Later this year, the solution is expected to support traditional hosted InfoGenesis POS customers and be optimized for multi-pass foodservice operations.
"In the highly competitive hospitality industry, it is critical that managers see the 'big picture' so they can use information to increase profitability and enhance guest service," said Agilysys Vice President of Sales Tony Ross. "Agilysys Analytics enables managers to turn predictive analysis into data-driven business decisions. This version of the solution is a first step toward the integrated guest experience. We look forward to expanding the solution to our other products; and, eventually, to our next-generation solution suite."
