COLUMBIA, Md., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce that Outrigger Enterprises Group, one of the largest and fastest growing privately-held leisure lodging and hospitality companies in the Asia-Pacific and Oceania regions, is standardizing its enterprise on the MICROS OPERA Enterprise Solution. In addition to its four Asia-based properties that are already utilizing MICROS OPERA, Outrigger will begin implementation of the OPERA Property Management Solution (PMS) at its 35 properties in Hawaii and the Asia-Pacific region beginning in July 2013.
MICROS OPERA's two-way interface with the proprietary central reservation system currently used by Outrigger and MICROS' global service and support network, were major factors in the selection by Outrigger of MICROS OPERA. With over 45 Outrigger properties worldwide, MICROS OPERA's ability to offer a multi-property platform on a single database streamlines functions across all Outrigger locations, making managing hotel operations easier and highly efficient.
"With advanced functionality and interface capabilities, MICROS OPERA offers all the features that we require," stated Alan White, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Outrigger Enterprises Group. "A robust and globally supported central solution will provide Outrigger the tools necessary to systematically expand our brand."
"MICROS is pleased that the success of our OPERA implementations at the Outriggers properties in Asia-Pacific has led to an expansion of our partnership," stated Dan Bell, Senior Vice President Hotel Business Unit for MICROS Systems. "Having a centralized solution seamlessly integrated across all of its properties provides Outriggers stronger control of hotel operations. We look forward to growing the partnership as Outrigger leverages more of the MICROS OPERA Enterprise Solution suite."
