ALPHARETTA, Ga.–()–Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced the release of its new Agilysys Sales & Catering product, a powerful cloud-native, SaaS or On-premise sales & catering solution to manage groups and events, as the next member of the modern seamlessly integrated Agilysys PMS ecosystem.
Agilysys Sales & Catering is a comprehensive sales & event management system that provides powerful tools to hotels, conference centers and resorts of all sizes.

Group meeting planners and event hosts have access to a fully dynamic and easy to use portal to upload and manage reservations, events and special requests, allowing for personalization of every event at each property. With feature-rich Contract and Event Order functionality, meeting planners can create customized contracts, banquet event orders (BEO) and flexible deposit and payment options on the fly right from their mobile device.
