Agilysys Enhances Its NextVision Applications Suite
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative retail
information technology and hospitality software solutions, today
announced major enhancements to its NextVision mobile applications suite.
The enhancements-to NextGateway, NextManager and NextPosition-will be
installable on numerous platforms and were designed to provide retail
managers and store associates access via multiple applications to
real-time store and enterprise information through mobile devices.
NextGateway is the newest addition to the NextVision software suite that
affords Agilysys the opportunity to provide retailers a wide array of
value-add systems functionality based on their existing software
investments. It runs as a Java virtual machine within the existing store
server infrastructure and is a light-weight framework installable on
many POS platforms, including Toshiba (News - Alert) Global Commerce Solutions (TGCS)
4690, Windows and Linux. NextGateway was designed to support a wide
array of feature plug-ins such as store activity reporting, item price
information, printer integration, emailing receipts and options for
accessing and sharing local store and enterprise data. It will be
available this month for 4690 OS, and Agilysys plans to expand to other
retail environments such as SAP (News - Alert) early in 2013.
Agilysys' NextManager product was enhanced to use the Company's new
gateway framwork to implement store reporting, terminal monitoring and
manager alerts. Versions 3T and 3S will enable managers to receive
immediate access to real-time store information via their Windows
Mobile, iOS or Android (News - Alert)-based mobile devices. NextManager Version 3T was
redesigned to provide separate modules for store reports. In addition,
it affords monitoring and alerts to users of Toshiba Global Commerce
Solutions 4690-based ACE advanced POS applications and will be available
this month. NextManager Version 3S, which will be available in March
2013, will provide a reporting module for SAP's POS system.
NextPosition Version 3T will enable full mobile POS functionality for
Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions (TGCS) 4690-based Supermarket
Application and ACE applications and will be available in April 2013.
The software will be tightly integrated with TGCS Store Integrator
Framework (SIF) and VeriFone's PayWare Mobile Enterprise solutions with
all forms of payment via secure transaction on an iTouch, iPad or
Android mobile device.
