L’Auberge du Lac Selects Agilysys

Agilysys, Inc., a leading
provider of enterprise computer solutions and hospitality software
solutions, announced that L’Auberge du Lac Hotel & Casino in Lake Charles,
LA has selected the Lodging Management System (LMS) from Agilysys, as well
as modules LMS ARTS and LMS SPA, to streamline operations at the exclusive
property, which is scheduled to open in Spring 2005. L’Auberge du Lac is
owned by Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., Las Vegas. “We needed a robust and flexible property management system for our hotel
and casino operation at L’Auberge du Lac,” said Pinnacle Entertainment,
Inc. Chief Technology Officer Bart Lewin. “LMS and its modules offered
exactly what we were looking for in terms of application integration and
system functionality. We also have worked with Agilysys in the past and
have been impressed with the support and guidance they have provided -
from development to implementation.”

LMS is an integrated property management software system designed to
create economies of scale and provide greater control of front office,
accounting and housekeeping operations. LMS also links customers’ gaming
accounts to hotel accounts. The versatile front-office system is easily
expandable to incorporate additional software modules from Agilysys and
other vendors.

LMS ARTS interfaces with hotel guest history data to preplan a variety of
activities, such as dinner reservations, tee times, tennis lessons and
even off-site activities. LMS SPA allows hotels to schedule spa room and
treatment technicians for guests. Both programs, which integrate
seamlessly with the LMS property management system, place canceled
activities and appointments back into inventory for resale, resulting in
optimum property utilization and profitability.

“L’Auberge du Lac’s decision to select our software solution clearly
demonstrates the property’s commitment to its guests,” said Bill Lashley,
senior vice president and general manager, Agilysys, Hospitality
Solutions. “This new Pinnacle property will be a premiere destination
resort. Incorporating LMS and its modules LMS ARTS and LMS SPA will not
only streamline overall operations at the property but also will ensure an
exceptional guest experience.”
