Ellis Island Hotel, Casino and Brewery Selects Agilysys Solutions for Optimized Efficiency and Secure Guest Payments


(NASDAQ:AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation
hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Ellis
Island Hotel, Casino and Brewery has selected Agilysys' award-winning InfoGenesis®
as a hosted solution and rGuest®
as their payment solution. rGuest Pay will provide the property
with complete security for their guests' financial data, while
InfoGenesis POS will increase efficiency across the property and help
management and property team members deliver world-class guest service.

"We're excited to implement the Agilysys solutions and we're certain
they will help optimize operations at our property," said JP Murray,
Director of IT Operations at Ellis Island Casino, Hotel and Brewery. "We
have always been a family-owned business and having personal service and
a guest-centric operation is very important to us. InfoGenesis and
rGuest Pay will help us keep that focus while being more efficient and
securing every transaction across our property."

The family-owned Ellis Island Hotel, Casino and Brewery has a remarkable
history and is known throughout Las Vegas for their popular karaoke bar,
their world-famous restaurants, the Village Pub & Café and the Ellis
Island BBQ. Visitors can also enjoy the onsite brewery, which serves
over a million glasses a year and was voted best microbrewery in Las
Vegas. The property is located just off the Las Vegas Strip, where it
has been a landmark for 50 years.

The Ellis Island Hotel, Casino and Brewery chose the following Agilysys

  • InfoGenesis POS is an award-winning, comprehensive
    point-of-sale system that combines easy-to-use terminal and tablet
    touchscreen applications with industry-leading offline capabilities.
    Its strong reporting and analysis features, enterprise-grade menu and
    item configuration capabilities, and multi-language support drive
    service flexibility and increased operational efficiency. The
    cloud-based deployment of InfoGenesis will allow the property to be
    more cost-effective in their operations, avoiding the resources and
    space needed to maintain the system onsite.
  • rGuest Pay is a payment gateway that enables complete and
    secure payment processing. rGuest Pay leverages one of the few payment
    offerings that includes: validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE),
    which securely encrypts cardholder data while drastically reducing
    annual PCI audit costs; a Payment Information Proxy (PIP) that secures
    data arriving via e-commerce interfaces; robust tokenization, which
    eliminates storage of cardholder data; and a full range of fixed and
    mobile EMV-ready payment devices that ensure compliance with new card
    security regulations.

"We look forward to helping Ellis Island Casino drive operational
efficiency with our comprehensive and feature-rich solutions," said
Sridhar Laveti, Vice President of Products and Customer Support at
Agilysys. "The property will be implementing InfoGenesis as a hosted
solution and combined with rGuest Pay the staff will be equipped to
deliver the best possible guest experiences across all touch-points.
These solutions are ideally suited to meet the needs of the casino and
shows their strong commitment to excellent guest service."
