|COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 8, 2008 - MICROS
Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology
solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce
that Movenpick Hotels & Resorts, based in Glattbrugg, Switzerland,
has included MICROS-Fidelio as preferred IT vendor for its 80 hotels and
resorts in 25 countries. MICROS-Fidelio will provide hospitality IT solutions,
including OPERA Property Management System (PMS) and OPERA Sales and Catering
With plans to expand its portfolio to include 100 hotels by 2010, the international hotel group is continuing to leverage technology that will support its growth objectives. MICROS's fully integrated solution offers Movenpick the technology tools to help bring its plan to fruition. OPERA PMS provides Movenpick with powerful tools to handle reservations, check guests in and out, assign rooms, and manage room inventory. The application also assists with accommodation of in-house guest needs, and administration of accounting and billing. Due to the integration with OPERA PMS, OPERA S&C frees Movenpick's sales and catering staff from dependency on other departments to complete key tasks.
"Movenpick Hotels & Resorts' long-standing partnership with MICROS and its strong presence across Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East helped solidify our decision," stated Oliver Bernet, Senior Vice President of Information Technology and CIO for Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. "We require a reliable IT solution that streamlines our operations and advances our business goals."
"The flexibility, scalability, and integration capabilities of MICROS's solutions enable Movenpick Hotels & Resorts to minimize its IT infrastructure and focus on managing its hotels, not technology," stated Kaweh Niroomand, President of MICROS-Fidelio EAME. "As a preferred information technology vendor, we look forward to continued delivery of our products and services for Movenpick Hotels & Resorts in the future."
