TimeManagement’s TMx labor management solution gives hospitality operators the tools they need to improve the efficiency and productivity of their workforce through precision staff scheduling and management. Solution modules include performance-based scheduling, dynamic labor forecasting, embedded workflows for human resources, employee self-service, and multiple time capture solutions. The software seamlessly integrates to numerous POS, PMS, inventory and payroll systems including Agilysys InfoGenesis™ POS and Agilysys Eatec®. TMx minimizes labor expense and helps drive revenue growth through an improved customer experience that motivates repeat customer visits. The solution strategically complements the existing Agilysys product suite by addressing the complex needs of work force management in the hospitality industry.
James Dennedy, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “This acquisition provides a new source of revenue for Agilysys with only modest customer overlap while simultaneously offering opportunities to expand the distribution of the TMx solution into our existing installed base of InfoGenesis and Eatec customers. Integrating the TMx human capital management solution with our point-of-sale solution eliminates the need for a separate time clock; it can all be done from InfoGenesis. Equally important, the integration with Eatec offers a comprehensive back of house solution that provides hospitality operators improved management of their most expensive inputs to guest service delivery; labor and material.“
Mr. Dennedy added, “The hospitality industry recognizes TMx as a preferred workforce management solution. This acquisition reflects the Company’s strategic emphasis on pursuing opportunities to grow our market share in the hospitality industry by offering a growing suite of market leading, integrated technology solutions that help our customers improve guest recruitment, enhance the guest experience and help capture an increasing share of guest spend.”

By joining forces with Agilysys, we will have the ability to significantly increase the market penetration of TMx while also enabling Agilysys to further help customers more efficiently manage and grow their business. We look forward to working with Jim and the Agilysys team to continue offering hospitality operators a leading solution that helps them optimize the productivity and profitability of their labor force.”
