Areas USA Standardizes Operations With The MICROS Simphony™ Enterprise Solution

Stocks in this article: MCRS

















COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce that Areas USA,  a leading provider of food & beverage and retail services in the travel industry, has selected the MICROS S imphony™ Enterprise Solution as its standard SaaS, cloud-based point-of-sale system across its United States airport and turnpike operations.  Areas USA will build its operational technology infrastructure for food and beverage utilizing MICROS S imphony, which provides the organization with a robust enterprise system, web-based reporting, and business intelligence functionalities with a high level of flexibility.  MICROS's S imphony also seamlessly interfaces to Areas USA's Corporate Infrastructure systems.

Leveraging MICROS S imphony's state-of-the-art technology and service oriented architecture (SOA), Areas USA can quickly deploy the system across its organization and streamline the integration of S imphony into its multi-brand airport and turnpike operations.  S imphony is centralized, allowing for the entire system to be managed from one application.  The solution is also being hosted in one of MICROS's worldwide data centers, removing Areas USA's onsite servers and the responsibility of managing the servers from its internal IT department.

MICROS and Areas USA have been partners for years, with the MICROS 9700 Hospitality Management System (HMS) installed at many locations.  The sites with the MICROS 9700 HMS will be converted to the MICROS S imphony platform in conjunction with the implementation of S imphony at all new sites under the management of Areas USA.  MICROS S imphony and MICROS 9700 HMS have a similar look and feel, providing the sites converting to the new solution reduced training time as well as an improved user interface.

"We selected MICROS cloud-based S imphony and MICROS's superior hardware technology due to the solution's advanced functionalities and MICROS's strength in the hospitality industry," stated Raul Ramis, Information Technology Director, Areas USA.  "In order to accommodate our growth, we require a technology partner who can provide a feature-rich and highly secure solution.  By installing MICROS S imphony across our locations, we will have a comprehensive, all inclusive point-of-service solution, which will fully address all of our varying technology needs at each operation."

"We are excited to introduce Areas USA to the MICROS S imphony Enterprise Solution and partner together on future projects, such as the latest conversion of its Florida Turnpike and remodel of the Maryland Turnpike operations," declared Ed Chapel, Executive Vice President, North America Restaurants for MICROS.  "MICROS S imphony is a highly flexible solution, which will strongly facilitate Areas USA's future expansion efforts across the United States."
