New Agilysys Sponsored Research Provides Insights for Hoteliers Looking for Next-Generation PMS Technology
ALPHARETTA, GA. — Sep. 20, 2017 — Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced the availability of The 2017 Smart Decision Guide™ to Hotel Property Management Systems.
Based on extensive research conducted by Starfleet Research, the eBook illustrates how next-generation property management systems are helping to break down the solution and data siloes that prevent hotels from delivering a winning guest experience.
According to the research, next-generation hospitality technologies are empowering hoteliers to continuously increase levels of efficiency and effectiveness in their operations, including improving the breadth and quality of guest service. As part of their technology modernization initiatives, hoteliers are phasing out function-specific, standalone software programs that are unable to “talk” with one another, and in their place, are deploying technologies that can seamlessly integrate and share data across platforms. Combined, these technologies can automate all of the different functions that support a property — or multiple properties — in a unified fashion.
“The benefits of a next-generation PMS are multifold,” said Jeff Zabin, research director at Starfleet Research. "The mountain of guest data that resides in the PMS gives hotels a distinct and formidable competitive advantage as they analyze and act upon this information. The result is the ability to offer flawless guest service, whether it’s an individual guest renting a room for one night or a large group of guests hosting a conference for a week.”
Hoteliers rank these key factors as central to the success of unifying their infrastructure:
"This research emphasizes the significance of the property management system in providing the central unifying framework for hotel systems and data structures,” said Jim Walker, Senior Vice President of Global Revenue at Agilysys. “Hotel operators realize that enhancing the quality of the overall guest experience through the deployment of an integrated PMS can lead to growth in the number of repeat guest stays and a higher volume and intensity of positive brand advocacy, resulting in improved guest loyalty and increased revenue across the property."
