Agilysys, Inc., a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, announced that  Elysian, a new ultra-luxury hotel in Chicago, has selected a comprehensive suite of hospitality solutions to enhance efficiency and streamline operations.

The Elysian will implement the Visual One software suite, InfoGenesis POS™, Eatec Solutions inventory and procurement system and Guest eMarketing (GeM) correspondence and marketing management solution, all from Agilysys. Agilysys also is providing information technology infrastructure services for the property, including implementation of a storage area network and virtualization services. The Elysian, scheduled to open in early summer 2009, will feature 188 suites and 52 condominium residences.

“Agilysys is a total solutions provider, offering a well-designed and tightly integrated enterprise solution capable of managing every aspect of our property,” said Michael Velasquez, information technology director at Elysian. “The Visual One suite is user friendly, easy to customize and compatible with Microsoft Office, which is essential for report writing and data mining. InfoGenesis POS, unlike other point-of-sale systems, is enterprise ready, built on an open architecture and has strong offline capabilities. Its integration with Eatec Solutions will help us control costs and ensure accuracy in our food and beverage and retail operations. We are confident the Agilysys software suite will enable us to run at peak efficiency and deliver a memorable guest experience.”

The Elysian will implement the following solutions from Agilysys:

  • Visual One Software Suite, including the Visual One property management system: a comprehensive property management solution that offers a wide range of features and functionality, including front office operations, guest history, housekeeping, reservations management and more.
- Visual One Accounting System: manages accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger and check reconciliation.
- Visual One Club Management System: creates health club memberships and monitor facilities usage
- Visual One Condo Accounting System: manages condominium rentals.

- Visual One Spa Management System: tracks employee work schedules, makes spa appointments and sends e-mail confirmations to guests.
  • InfoGenesis POS™: an enterprise-ready point-of-sale solution that combines powerful reporting and configuration capabilities with an easy-to-use touch-screen terminal application. Features include real-time reporting capabilities; advanced sorting, filtering and grouping options; and encryption tools that ensure the security of guest data. The Elysian will use InfoGenesis POS to manage its restaurant, bar and room service operations.
  • Eatec Solutions: a full-featured inventory and procurement software solution designed especially for the foodservice and hospitality industries. Along with its core purchasing, inventory, recipe, forecasting, production and sales analysis functions, the system also offers modules for catering, restaurant and retail. The modular software structure enables customers to construct the exact set of features they need to monitor inventory and optimize production. The Elysian will use Eatec Solutions to monitor food and beverage and retail inventory.
  • Guest eMarketing (GeM): a feature-rich guest correspondence and marketing management solution that enables HTML-based correspondence, surveys and marketing campaigns. Using GeM, Elysian can build interactive relationships with guests and increase sales and profitability through highly targeted e-mail marketing blasts that are fast, direct and cost effective.

“The Elysian is a world-class property, and it has selected a technology suite that delivers world-class results,” said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. “The combined power of the Visual One suite, InfoGenesis POS and Eatec Solutions inventory and procurement system will enable the property to minimize operating costs, conserve resources and capitalize on revenue opportunities. Equally important, these solutions will help deliver the five-star experience that guests and residents expect from a property of this caliber.”
