Marriott International Expands Partnership with Micros

May 8, 2014

Micros Systems, Inc., a provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, announced that Marriott International, Inc. has expanded its partnership with Micros by selecting the cloud-based Micros Simphony Enterprise Solution for its food and beverage operations for its Marriott brands in the United States and Canada.

The Micros Simphony Enterprise Solution will be hosted in a Micros Data Center. The deployment, which includes Micros workstations and mobile devices, will substantially conclude by the end of 2014.

According to a release, Micros Simphony is a flexible and scalable enterprise point-of-sale system, which allows quick deployment to thousands of Micros devices across all Marriott US & Canada properties. Once deployment is complete, Marriott International will be able to centrally manage the entire system from within a single application ensuring menu item standardization, reducing redundancy, and maintaining configuration consistency. By moving the solution above property, Marriott shrinks the overall IT footprint required at each location.

"Micros Simphony provides Marriott a superior Point-of-Sale that elevates the guest experience throughout our brand," stated Kermit Littlefield, Vice President of Global Operations for Marriott International.

"We are pleased to announce another major milestone in our long- term partnership with Marriott International, as we together bring innovative solutions to the Marriott family of hotels," stated Jason Blair, Vice President of Strategic Accounts of Micros Systems.
