Business Connexion (BCX) has tied up a strategic relationship with Agilysys, a global provider of IT solutions to the hospitality industry.
Agilysys products include InfoGenesis POST and Eatec Solutions, an inventory and procurement system.
"The South African tourism sector is a robust industry that has enjoyed significant growth in recent years, as evidenced by its contribution to the GDP and the rising number of tourists visiting the country," says Mothusi Lukhele, Business Connexion's group executive for Coastal and UK regions. "This is attributable, in part, to the country's hosting of major international sporting events and global conferences.
"Through our partnership with Agilysys, we will bring leading edge solutions to the local hospitality sector, while providing strong support through our extensive national footprint."
Business Connexion recently was awarded a tender to supply information technology venue managers to Match Event Services, while Agilysys was recently awarded the tender to deliver its integrated hospitality solutions to Twickenham Stadium in London.
Tina Stehle, senior vice-president and GM of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group, comments: "Our strategic partnership with Business Connexion brings together an impressive skills set, vast industry experience and open architecture solutions.
"Our technology is used in leading hospitality venues around the world, including stadiums, hotels, resorts and casinos. We look forward to expanding our presence in the South African hospitality market and to working with BCX to deliver innovative solutions to its customers."
