Paragon Casino Installs Agilysys Suite

Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, La. announces an agreement with Agilysys under which the company will provide a wide range of software solutions for the 531-room property, which recently completed an expansion that added an eight-story atrium and more than 200 guest rooms.

"The Lodging Management System got its start in the gaming industry and the Materials Management System provides a robust yet flexible inventory procurement system that can manage everything from casino to restaurant operations," says Chad Bordelon, information technology director at Paragon Casino Resort. "We are confident these systems, along with the DataMagine document management solution, will improve efficiency and enhance guest service throughout the property."

Paragon Casino Resort has implemented the following hospitality solutions from Agilysys:

  • Paragon uses Lodging Management System ARTS, an activities reservations tracking module, to manage the hotelÃ.‚¬™s various venues and place canceled activities back into inventory for resale; LMS ResNet, a Web-based real-time reservation system, to enable online shoppers to book room reservations directly into the LMS property management system; and LMS ShowGate, an attraction ticketing module, to provide show ticketing services with total venue management.
  • Materials Management System, an inventory and procurement solution, enables Paragon Casino Resort to maximize purchasing power and reduce revenue losses. The property uses the MMS Bar Coding module for wireless data collection of inventory; the MMS Menu/Recipe Analysis module to build recipes that maximize revenue; and the MMS Retail module to improve ordering accuracy.
  • DataMagine, a document management system that scans, indexes, stores and retrieves documents and reports for e-mailing, faxing or printing. Paragon is using the system to streamline recordkeeping and archive data, particularly in its accounting department.
