Magnolia Bluffs selects Agilysys lodging-management system

Magnolia Bluffs Casino, in Natchez, Miss., has selected Agilysys’ lodging management system property management solution to streamline operating efficiency and enhance guest service at its newly renovated hotel, which is expected to open in early 2016.
    
Casino Holding Investment Partners, parent company of Magnolia Bluffs, recently purchased the Isle of Capri hotel, which will be modernized and rebranded as Magnolia Bluffs Hotel. As part of the renovation, the executive team wanted state of the art technology that would enable the property to optimize efficiency and provide exceptional guest service. After a review, the hotel selected Agilysys' LMS to streamline operations and maximize guest wallet share. As a Software-as-a-Service offering, LMS will help ensure predictable costs, flexible growth and an accelerated return on investment.

"We really did our homework when shopping for a new property management system, and LMS was the clear winner," said Debbie Saulter, CFO at Magnolia Bluffs. "LMS is a longtime favorite of the gaming industry, and its availability as a hosted solution makes it particularly appealing. We can eliminate some of the staffing costs associated with traditional PMS deployment while getting advanced functionality faster than ever. We can also leverage the knowledge of Agilysys staff to reduce our in-house IT burden. Throughout this process, Agilysys has been our technology partner, providing outstanding service in a short time frame. We are eager to open our new hotel and are confident that LMS will help us streamline operations, maximize revenue potential and provide outstanding guest service."

LMS was recently enhanced to offer a SaaS delivery option in addition to traditional on-site deployment. SaaS deployments help customers accelerate return on investment, realize more predictable IT costs, reduce security and compliance risk, and provide for flexible growth in usage and access to new features. In addition, the latest version of LMS features integration with rGuest Analyze, the Agilysys business intelligence solution that highlights revenue opportunities, optimizes business process and provides insight into operational efficiency.
