    "We wanted flexible and reliable solutions that work together to create
more efficient business processes," said Caroline Altman, controller at Point
Grace Resort. "Visual One solutions provided the complete package, with well-
designed systems that deliver measurable results and an implementation team
that was responsive to our needs. These comprehensive solutions will ensure we
have more control over our business and, as a result, our guests have the best
possible experience during their stay."
    The Visual One Premiere Property Management System is a flexible and
reliable property management solution for hotels, resorts and conference
centers ranging in size from nine rooms to 1,500 rooms. Operating under
Microsoft Windows(R) NT with a Microsoft SQL(R) server database, the system
uses the latest Microsoft products and enables Point Grace staff to build
mailing lists, create charts and graphs and send reservation confirmations to
guests.
    The Visual One Condo Accounting module works with the Visual One Premiere
Property Management System to enable the resort's condominium units to be
reserved as hotel rooms. The module calculates expenses and revenue and
provides a variety of monthly reports that allow Point Grace to oversee the
financial positions of both the management company and condo owners. The
module is ideal for properties that have a mix of condominium units and hotel
rooms, allowing both to be part of the same reservation system.
    "We are proud to add Point Grace Resort to our growing roster of
customers in the Caribbean," said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and
general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions. "The Visual One Suite of
Products by Agilysys is a perfect fit for properties like Point Grace that
want fully- integrated property management and accounting solutions. The
technology will maximize staff efficiency and improve productivity, allowing
the property to focus its efforts on meeting guest needs and providing
exceptional service."
    Point Grace Resort, situated at the point of a pristine 12-mile beach,
offers a selection of oceanfront suites and penthouses, as well as poolside
cottage suites. The property also offers gourmet dining and a full-service
European-style spa. Known for unparalleled guest service, Point Grace Resort
has received numerous awards, including recent recognition by World Travel
Awards as the Caribbean's Leading Boutique Hotel.
