Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative information technology and hospitality software solutions, announced the launch of its Mobile ResNet application.

The application enables guests to book rooms directly into the Lodging Management System™ (LMS) property management solution via any Web-enabled smartphone as well as an iPad™ or iPod touch® device.

One of the first companies to use the application is Boyd Gaming Corporation, which has incorporated Mobile ResNet into B Connected Mobile, one of the first multiproperty, loyalty program-based smartphone applications of its kind in the gaming industry. Rolled out in July, B Connected Mobile delivers personalized offers and information - including best rates available on hotel rooms - directly to Boyd Gaming customers on their mobile devices.

"We wanted a solution that would allow us to expand the benefits of our B Connected loyalty program," said Boyd Gaming's Corporate Director of E-Commerce Brian Best. "The B Connected Mobile smartphone app complements B Connected Online, our online community of nearly half a million loyal customers who use LMS ResNet by Agilysys for online room reservations. The Mobile ResNet application allows our customers to make room reservations at any Boyd Gaming property in a mobile-friendly experience. This is one more way Boyd Gaming is using technology to help create an exceptional guest stay."

The Mobile ResNet application integrates seamlessly with the LMS ResNet online reservations solution to enable guests to book a room. However, unlike many mobile applications, the Mobile ResNet application is broad in scope and is designed to run on any Web-enabled smartphone as well as iPad and iPod touch devices. It rounds out the LMS property management system offering, which includes modules for accounting, activities scheduling, attraction ticketing, condo accounting, food and beverage management, remote check-in and more.

"Increasingly, hotels are looking for technology that speeds delivery of services and gives guests more options," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group. "Our new Mobile ResNet application offers maximum flexibility to guests, many of whom are on the move and looking for ways to save time. It is exciting to see how Boyd Gaming has incorporated this application into its broader nationwide loyalty program to enhance service and offer a more personalized guest experience."
