"Strategically, technology should be leveraged to improve the guest experience, gain organizational efficiencies, and reduce overall operating costs. The multi-property deployment of OPERA PMS allows us to realize this and more."
"The seasonal opening of our hotel with the MICROS solutions in place has been very smooth," stated Arnaud Bamvens, General Manager, Grand Hotel Barriere in Dinard, France. "The hotel operation staff has been extremely pleased with the performance of OPERA PMS and MICROS 9700. We found the MICROS team highly competent and easy to work with. We are proud to be the first Lucien Barriere Hotels & Casinos property to be hosted from the MICROS-Fidelio Data Center in Frankfurt."
"Based on the successful deployment of OPERA at the new Fouquet's Hotel, Lucien Barriere Hotels & Casinos has decide to deploy further properties in the MICROS-Fidelio Data Center," continued Olliveaud.
