Simphony™, MICROS’s first Software as a Service offering, is an enterprise, service-oriented architecture (SOA), point-of-sale (POS), hospitality product. SOA allows organizations to deploy the hosted POS system using a design that provides flexibility, resiliency, and streamlined integration of applications. Simphony™ is designed for SaaS deployment into diverse environments to deliver the complex, mission-critical functions demanded by the most innovative customers. SaaS alleviates the burden of software maintenance, ongoing operation, and support.
Simphony™ allows the client to be fully resilient and capable of performing mission critical operations in the event of an upstream failure. SOA allows for the integration of business functions such as property management systems, paperless kitchen display systems, credit card interfaces, and reporting at the individual property or revenue center to ensure continuous system operation. Additionally, SOA allows for the elimination of costly local servers by allowing only the necessary SaaS services to be run at the property level.
