IT solution provider Agilysys to resell Evolution’s LaneHawk loss-prevention product, as well as provide installation, integration support services.

As a certified installation provider of LaneHawk, Agilysys is able to not only deliver the Evolution Robotics Retail hardware and software, but can also provide integration directly to the point-of-sale system and post-installation support services

Agilysys, Inc.  (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, announced today that they have entered into a partnership with Evolution Robotics Retail to be an authorized reseller and implementation partner for its flagship loss-prevention product, LaneHawk(TM), which helps turn bottom-of-basket (BOB) losses into profits in real time.

LaneHawk is a visual scanner that detects and recognizes items without having to read a product’s UPC.  When a BOB item is recognized on the bottom of a shopping cart, LaneHawk acts like any other scanner and sends the UPC information to the point-of-sale (POS) system via an Ethernet connection, ensuring that stores get paid for their BOB items.

“This partnership will enable Agilysys to offer retailers a complete end-to-end delivery of the Evolution Robotics Retail solution,” said Paul Civils, senior vice president and general manager, Agilysys Retail Solutions Group.  “More importantly, this type of loss prevention product is valuable in assisting retailers with increasing their return on investment during this difficult economic time and is complementary to our current solutions offerings.”

As a certified installation provider of LaneHawk, Agilysys is able to not only deliver the Evolution Robotics Retail hardware and software, but can also provide integration directly to the point-of-sale system and post-installation support services,” said Mark Belfiglio, vice president of sales and marketing at Evolution Robotics Retail.  “Through this partnership Agilysys can expand its solution offerings to its existing customer base, as well as attract new customers.”
