.
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Feb. 5, 2008 – Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, including specifically-designed hospitality industry solutions, announced today that Pinehurst Resort in Village of Pinehurst, N.C. has selected the Visual One Club Management System by Agilysys and the Visual One Spa System by Agilysys to streamline operations at the world-famous property. Pinehurst Resort already uses the Visual One Premiere Property Management System and the Visual One Condo Accounting, Golf, Sales & Catering, and Retail solutions by Agilysys.

The Visual One Club Management System will enable the resort’s private country club to create a variety of memberships, including golf, social and tennis memberships, track facilities usage and post and track membership fees. The system also can print photo identification membership cards with barcode and member numbers, create wait lists for memberships, and generate a variety of reports, such as dues schedules, membership statistics and spending analyses. Because the module is integrated with other Visual One by Agilysys products, sales from the property’s golf, spa and retail outlets can be settled directly to member accounts.

“The Visual One Club Management System from Agilysys is exceptionally well-organized and easy to use,” said Michael Schubach, vice president of information technology for Pinehurst Resort. “The system defines various membership types and captures a great deal of membership information, which enables us to provide a highly personalized level of service. It also generates detailed reports that help us keep a handle on everything from dues schedules to spending. We immediately recognized its potential to streamline operations and increase profitability.”

The Visual One Spa System is a flexible and feature-rich spa management system that keeps track of employee work schedules and commission levels, allows staff to insert comments into guest records for more customized appointments and enables scheduling by date, time, type of service and staff member. The system also generates a variety of reports and sends e-mail spa appointment confirmations to hotel guests.

“Pinehurst Resort is a world-class property that understands how to use technology to enhance the guest experience,” said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions. “The Visual One Club Management System, with features and functionality that automate every aspect of membership and facilities usage, will ensure that Pinehurst maximizes efficiency, while the Visual One Spa System will enable the property to provide the high level of service that guests have come to expect.”

Pinehurst Resort, located in the Sandhills region of North Carolina, was voted ‘Best U.S. Golf Resort’ in 2007 by the readers of Travel + Leisure Golf magazine. Pinehurst is a 2,000-acre property, featuring golf, spa, tennis and family and leisure recreation. Built in 1895, it has hosted such international events as the U.S Open Golf Championship, U.S. Clay Court Tennis Championship and the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship. It continues to receive numerous awards for its exceptional accommodations, fine dining, meeting facilities and child-friendly offerings.
