Powered by Oracle Linux for MICROS, Oracle Food and Beverage enables customers to keep pace with the latest innovations in point of sale (POS)
The heart and soul of a restaurant or food and beverage brand may very well be found in the kitchen, but the central intelligence is located directly at the restaurant point of sale. Far beyond a transactional workhorse – the point of sale is the hub from which every interaction is captured and connected – from restaurant inventory management and price elasticity to promotional efficacy and loyalty. As the data volume and variety continues to increase, food and beverage leaders need simplicity to scale effectively.
To this end, the latest enhancements to Oracle MICROS Simphony, released this week, focus on giving customers choice and flexibility in operating systems with the introduction of Oracle Linux for MICROS. Oracle Linux for MICROS eliminates additional licensing requirements and associated costs, requires less operating system computing power and reduces installation times resulting in better speed to value. What’s more, for existing Oracle MICROS POS hardware customers that have historically been unable to upgrade to the cloud, the introduction of Oracle Linux for MICROS opens up tremendous opportunities associated with point of sale as a service (POSaaS).
In conjunction with the Simphony 19.1 release, Oracle Food and Beverage is launching a new Oracle Linux for MICROS workstation line up and migration kits for many of the workstations in the field today. The combined releases allow Oracle Food and Beverage customers to have a new, tightly integrated point of sale ecosystem that includes Oracle hardware, platform, database, and application in one solution. Customers opting to use this ecosystem can experience improved performance and reduced system maintenance because the components are designed to work together seamlessly.
“Food and beverage leaders large and small must balance day to day priorities with an eye on future disruption to ensure long term growth and brand affinity,” said Chris Adams, vice president of strategy for Oracle Food and Beverage. “We create purpose-built hardware and software solutions that work together and also offer open architecture solutions to enable our customers to have the flexibility to invest in the right solution for today and be well prepared for whatever the future brings.”
