(Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, today announced that Munchbar in Las Vegas has selected the InfoGenesis™ POS system and the TMx™ time management solution to streamline operations and enhance guest service at the casual new eatery located in Caesars Palace.


"We were looking for a flexible and reliable point-of-sale solution for our food and beverage operation, and the InfoGenesis POS system provided exactly what we needed," said Bart Mahoney, managing partner of Munchbar. "We also wanted a solution that would help us address labor costs, which are typically a restaurant's highest controllable cost. The TMx solution enables us to integrate employee scheduling, time and attendance, human resources and labor forecasting functions into the InfoGenesis POS system, so that we can keep a close watch on costs and operate at peak efficiency. As a result, we can focus our efforts on delivering an exceptional guest experience."

The InfoGenesis POS system is an award-winning point-of-sale software solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities in the back office with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. The system's centralized database pulls together food and beverage functions, enabling total management of dining and bar operations. Real-time access to information enables food and beverage managers to provide more efficient service and reduce potential losses. Features of the InfoGenesis POS solution include audit log and electronic journal, multi-language capability, packages and prix fixe menus, signature capture and advanced sorting, filtering and grouping options.

The TMx time management solution is a comprehensive labor management software system that enables hospitality providers to improve the efficiency and productivity of their workforce. It includes a variety of features and functionality, such as performance-based scheduling, embedded workflow for employee hiring and multiple time-capture solutions. With the TMx solution, customers can create labor forecasts, transfer employee time records and allocate tips, sales and other collectibles.

"Restaurants and other food-service providers are increasingly looking for ways to conserve resources while increasing productivity," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. "The InfoGenesis POS system combined with the TMx labor management solution offers a one-stop shop for a complete and integrated back-office solution that helps restaurants enhance guest service and operate more efficiently. This powerful integrated solution not only reduces labor costs, but also improves decision making and aligns corporate best practices into daily activities."
