Vegas Casino Expands IBM i Footprint
September 17, 2013 Alex Woodie
The 300-room Silverton Casino Hotel in Las Vegas picked the IBM i-based Lodging Management System (LMS) from Agilysys to streamline and automate various aspects of its business, the software company announced last month.
The Silverton Casino Hotel was already running Agilysys’ IBM i-based inventory package, called the Stratton Warren System (SWS). When it came time to select a new core application to run the hotel side of the business, the company naturally checked out SWS’ neighbor in the Agilysys stable, LMS.
“We have used the Agilysys Stratton Warren System for many years and have been impressed with the company’s service and support,” Kirk Golding, senior vice president of information technology at Silverton Casino Hotel, said in a press release. “When selecting technology for our property, we looked to Agilysys because of the company’s experience and track record in the hotel and gaming industry.”
In addition to LMS, Silverton tapped Agilysys for WMx, a Windows-based suite of workforce management applications that delivers worker scheduling, labor forecasting, and employee hiring and self-service capabilities. WMx is developed by a Minneapolis, Minnesota, firm called TimeManagement, which Agilysys acquired earlier this year.
