14 July 2008

BOCA RATON, Florida -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, including specifically-designed hospitality software solutions, has announced that Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino in Savannakhet, Laos has selected a comprehensive portfolio of software solutions to increase efficiency and enhance guest service at the 180-room luxury property, scheduled to open in September. Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino is managed by Sanum Investments, Ltd.

The property was looking for a single vendor to provide a suite of solutions that addressed all facets of hotel and casino operations. It also wanted systems that were reliable and user-friendly. The Agilysys portfolio provided that suite, with software that automates property management, inventory and procurement, point-of-sale and document management.

"When investigating property management and point-of-sale solutions for our property in Laos, we wanted systems that were proven, scalable and easy to integrate with other applications like casino management, player tracking and financial management," said Glen Hunter, vice president of information technology at Sanum Investments, Ltd. "We also wanted enterprise solutions that would allow us to add and manage other properties from a single location. The Agilysys software solutions met our criteria, and the fact that they run on IBM iSeries eased our system reliability concerns. We look forward to implementing the Agilysys solutions and developing a long-term working relationship with the company."

Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino will use the following solutions from Agilysys:

-- Lodging Management System(R) (LMS), a comprehensive property management solution that automates every aspect of hotel operations. Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino will use LMS CASH(R), a credit authorization and settlements handling module, to provide instant online credit card approval combined with express check-in; and LMS ResNet, a Web-based real-time reservation system, to enable online shoppers to check room rates and availability and book reservations directly into the LMS property management system.

-- InfoGenesis POS(TM) solution by Agilysys, an enterprise-ready POS system that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. The system's centralized database pulls together food and beverage functions, which will enable the property to manage its dining, bar and room service operations.

-- Stratton Warren System (SWS) by Agilysys, a robust inventory and procurement solution that will enable Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino to obtain the best prices for goods and services and maximize buying power. The property will use the SWS Bar Coding module for wireless data collection of inventory; and the SWS Menu/Recipe Analysis module to manage food and beverage costs.

-- DataMagine(TM) Report Archive, a host-based report management solution. DataMagine Report Archive automatically captures, indexes and electronically files all ongoing application-generated general business form documents and reports, including invoices, credit memos, purchase orders and checks.

"We are proud to add Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino to our growing customer base in Southeast Asia," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. "The property is making strong commitment to guest service with its investment in technology systems that address everything from property management to procurement. Our comprehensive solution suite will enable the hotel to deliver an exceptional guest experience while streamlining operations, minimizing operating costs and conserving resources in virtually every department."

Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino, located in Savannakhet Province, Laos, will be the area's first five-star hotel and entertainment complex. It will include 180 guest rooms, a 58,000-square-foot casino, two restaurants, a coffee shop, bar, pool and spa. The $25 million property is scheduled to open in September 2008.
