— New technology enables convenient, around-the-clock dining experiences without staffing strain —

ALPHARETTA, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–While hotel room night revenue in 2022 is projected to reach $168.4 billion, within one percent of 2019’s pre-pandemic levels, continued staffing shortages are expected to contribute to slower recovery of revenue from food and beverage and other services, according to The American Hotel & Lodging Association 2022 State of the Hotel Industry Report. To accelerate food and beverage revenue recovery, properties such as Morongo Casino Resort and Spa are turning to innovative technology that enables guest self-service dining reservations and payment around-the-clock every day to stimulate increased revenue through additional availability and frictionless service.

Agilysys self-service kiosk technology now enables Morongo’s latest all-you-can-eat dining concept The Marketplace by Fabio Viviani. For one price, guests can enjoy unlimited dining selections conceived by the celebrity chef and presented at seven stations that represent offerings from different areas of the world.

Using kiosks located directly in front of the restaurant, guests schedule and pay for the dining by day, time, and guest count of their choice. Earned points, complimentary gifts and other offers can be redeemed at the kiosk and deducted from the dining cost. When the reserved table is available, the guest receives a text alert and checks in with the restaurant host.

Agilysys enables data from The Marketplace by Fabio Vivani dining experience to be integrated with Morongo’s end-to-end food-and-beverage systems as well as overall room, casino, and property systems to provide guest spend analysis and understanding. The system has improved the all-you-can-eat dining experience by empowering guests to self-select and reserve dining days and times rather than waiting in line for availability and by processing payment at the time of the reservation, eliminating checkout wait times. Morongo has seen an immediate increase in all-you-can-eat food and beverage revenue and has been able to focus employees on other areas where they are needed.

“At Morongo, the guest experience is paramount, and we value the important role technology plays in continuously innovating and improving that experience,” said Richard St. Jean, chief operating officer for Morongo Casino Resort & Spa. “As a trusted Morongo partner for a number of years and the proven provider of the integrated point-of-sale and property management technology already throughout our resort, the decision to work with Agilysys to develop the POS technology at The Marketplace was an obvious one.”

When developing The Marketplace concept, the Morongo technology team chose to implement solutions that enable convenient guest experiences while also freeing time for employees to provide enhanced world class guest service.

“We’ve been thrilled to welcome thousands of guests – both new and familiar – to The Marketplace since its opening,” added St. Jean. “Our self-service POS/seating system has enabled them to spend less time in line and more time enjoying the resort the way they want, whether that is playing their favorite slots and tables, enjoying a live band, or sipping cocktails with friends. Further, the eased line management affords our Marketplace hosts the opportunity to deliver a more personalized level of service to our diners.”

The Morongo Casino Resort and Spa complex also uses Agilysys solutions for its core property management (PMS) and point-of-sale (POS) needs, as well as for mobile check-in/out, digital keys, mobile self-service food and beverage ordering, contactless payment, and accepting and tracking cashless transactions wherever guests are throughout the hotel, casino, spa, and pool deck.

“We are excited to be part of the Morongo success story,” said Jeba Kingsley, vice president professional services of Agilysys. “Morongo has seen an immediate boost in revenue as guests are spending less time waiting in lines and more time enjoying all that the property has to offer. By adding our self-service kiosk technology to our other property management and point-of-sale solutions on property, we have been able to help Morongo improve employee experiences to help retain the best employees, and in turn, elevate guest experiences to capture more revenue.”

Morongo uses Agilysys solutions to optimize experiences across a variety of guest options, including: a hotel with 272 guest rooms, 32 suites and six casitas; a world-renowned casino with 195,000 square feet of gaming; a 24-hour fitness center; a luxury spa; nine restaurant concepts ranging from fine dining to quick service; and poolside plus 24-hour food and beverage service. The complex also includes the Morongo Travel Center, a gas station and convenience center with 32 fuel pumps, EV charging options and eight Tesla Superchargers, a car wash, dog park, and a 100-slot machine gaming area of its own.

Located near Palm Springs on the Morongo Indian Reservation, what began as a small bingo hall in 1983 has grown into one of the most established and successful Native American casinos in the state of California. The present Morongo Casino Resort and Spa opened in 2004 and is one of the largest tribal gaming facilities in the United States.

About the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa

The AAA Four-Diamond Morongo Casino Resort & Spa is located along the 10 Freeway near Palm Springs, California. Owned and operated by the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa offers the hottest slots and an array of table and high-limit gaming at one of the largest tribal gaming centers in the United States.

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR, “Palantir”), a leading builder of operating systems for the modern enterprise, today announced it was ranked the No. 1 Artificial Intelligence (AI) software platform both in 2021 market share and revenue, according to the IDC, Worldwide Artificial Intelligence Platforms Software Market Shares, 2021: AI is Being Used in More Unique Ways Than Ever (doc #US49602222, September 2022) report.

According to IDC, the market for AI platforms software grew 36.8% in 2021, equating to a $14.2 billion industry. A clear indicator of how embedded and pervasive AI has become across all business applications. The report also found that early adopters report 35% improvement in innovation and 33% improvement in sustainability by investing in AI over the past three years.

The increasingly broad adoption of Palantir’s Foundry and Gotham offerings across some the world’s most important organizations has been driven by the willingness of institutions to innovate and adapt with AI enabling platforms.

“In a time where AI is having a profound impact across various industries, the software providers that can continually innovate and drive success for their clients are more important than ever. Palantir has demonstrated its clear leadership in AI on a global scale from both a market share and revenue perspective and are on a trajectory to continue to do so,” said Ritu Jyoti, IDC’s Group VP, AI and Automation. “We predict that the growth of the AI sector is nowhere near slowing down and we’re excited to see how Palantir continues to separate itself from the competition by solving the toughest business challenges out there with their platforms.”

“The most significant arms race of our time is to construct the next generation of AI that is both effective and responsible. While most companies are content with addressing the idiosyncratic needs and inefficiencies of select customers in a subset of industries, the market we seek to address is essentially unlimited,” said Alex Karp, Palantir’s CEO & Co-Founder. “The development of our software is not intended to merely magnify in a linear and direct fashion the output of human labor. Instead, our software aspires to augment and accentuate the productive power of the human mind.”

Palantir Foundry is designed to transform the way organizations operate by creating a central operating system for their data, integrating siloed data sources into a common analytics and operations picture, while supporting critical data privacy and security protections. This can be achieved by implementing stand-alone modules such as the Foundry Data Integration Suite, or by implementing the entire Foundry platform.

Palantir’s software is currently deployed in more than 50 industries, and helps power decisions in some of the most complex data environments in the world, including manufacturing, health sciences, finance, and government.

G2E (Global Gaming Expo) Innovation Lab session on October 11 will highlight how properties are using new technology to improve guest services despite staff constraints

ALPHARETTA, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The global gaming industry saw record revenue in 2021 and is expected to do so again in 2022, with industry analysts revising expected revenues upward to $876 billion from a previous estimate of $747.9 billion according to the Global Gaming Industry study posted by ReportLinker in July. However, as patrons return in record numbers, owners, operators and management teams are struggling to staff enough positions to serve them.

About 6.2 million U.S. hospitality workers lost their jobs in 2020 due to pandemic shutdowns, and many of these workers have left the industry permanently or retired. According to a survey by job search site Joblist, half of U.S. hospitality workers surveyed said they would not be returning to the same jobs they held before the shutdowns, and one-third said they are no longer considering working in hospitality.

The combination of continued staff shortages and increased guest demand is accelerating the development of inventive and quick-to-deploy technology solutions to close this gap. At the G2E (Global Gaming Expo), Agilysys hospitality experts will host an Innovation Lab session on Tuesday, October 11 at 2:00 p.m. that will reveal real-world examples of new mobile, on-demand and kiosk-based software solutions that casino resorts and other properties are deploying with immediate guest-pleasing and revenue-driving results.

G2E is the largest gaming and entertainment event in North America. The event will be held at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas October 10-13, and will host hospitality industry professionals from all over the world. In addition to its Innovation Lab session, Agilysys also will showcase its software Experience Enhancers™ Collections that extend Agilysys’ property management systems (PMS), point-of-sale (POS) solutions, and Inventory and Procurement (I&P) solutions to amplify Return on Experience (ROE) for both guests and staff.

ROE measures how technology creates more engaged and empowered staff members as well as guests that return more often, spend more, and leave stronger reviews. ROE covers longer-term returns gained by ensuring every experience at every touchpoint avoids disappointment and creates a champion. Built to improve ROE through a variety of staff and guest experiences, Agilysys’ Experience Enhancers Collections enable property operators, management companies and owners to maximize the emotional and empirical returns derived from unifying advanced technology across their operations.

“As those of us who serve or work in this industry know, hospitality is a zero-disappointment business,” said Ramesh Srinivasan, president and CEO for Agilysys. “Even one negative experience among a dozen positive ones can provoke a patron to leave a negative review or tell others about their disappointment. That is why we collaborate with our customers and other thought leaders in hospitality and gaming to continuously understand what guests and employees value most so we can design and deliver software that optimizes those experiences across a property and over time. We are finding that new digital, mobile and self-service technologies are proving to be game-changers for many properties, elevating guest satisfaction and revenue while reducing employee stress,” Srinivasan concluded.

Casinos and resorts interested in actions they can take to elevate guest service despite staffing constraints can see demonstrations in Agilysys’ G2E Booth #3800 and learn more in the Agilysys Innovation Lab session on Tuesday, October 11 at 2:00 p.m. Those who participate in booth demonstrations will have the chance to win a $250 Amazon gift card.
