News for the Hospitality Executive
with the MICROS OPERA Enterprise Solution
COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 17, 2008 - MICROS Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce that it has donated the MICROS OPERA Enterprise Solution to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration. The solution, which includes OPERA Property Management, OPERA Sales & Catering, and OPERA Vacation Ownership, will be deployed before the end of 2008 and will serve as the hotel software used to educate UNLV students in practical applications.
UNLV offers one of the leading hospitality programs in the world, with Las Vegas serving as the world's largest hospitality and tourism laboratory. MICROS has enjoyed a strong relationship with UNLV starting with the deployment of MICROS 9700 Hospitality Management System (HMS) for the food & beverage operations in UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center, followed by MICROS’s donation of 9700 HMS as the core restaurant and retail software for use in the classrooms.
MICROS OPERA will be used in student curricula to educate hospitality management students in hotel, events, and condo management. Up to 200 students at a time will be taught on OPERA applications in various classes.
“Students at our college are fully exposed to the world of hospitality and leisure services, and this includes educating them on our industry’s leading software applications,” stated Stuart Mann, Dean of UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration. “MICROS understands the importance of preparing our students for immediate success as they enter the work force, and has been very generous in its support of our programs.”
“We are delighted to further develop our relationship with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas,” stated Tom Giannopoulos, President and CEO of MICROS. “And we are pleased that our software and services will help educate the future leaders of the global hospitality industry.”
In its 50-year history, UNLV has undergone an amazing transformation from a small branch college into a thriving urban research institution of 28,000 students and 3,300 faculty and staff.
Along the way, the urban land-grant university has become a dynamic resource for one of the country's fastest-growing and most enterprising cities. UNLV's 350-acre main campus, located on the Southern tip of Nevada in a desert valley surrounded by mountains, is home to more than 220 undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degree programs, all accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
