MICROS e7 was selected out of an initial field of 14 POS vendors. After successfully completing numerous in-store pilots, MICROS e7 was selected mainly because of its core functionality and its simplified support and installation process. All systems will be pre-programmed with employees, prices, and local menu items prior to shipping for installation.
Ben & Jerry's, an extremely eco-conscious company, was also particularly impressed with the sustainability and low carbon footprint of the MICROS WS5 terminal. MICROS WS5 is disk-less and operates without a fan, requiring less than half of the energy of a typical PC-based device.
"We wanted to achieve complete buy-in on our new system from the franchise community. Therefore, we assembled a panel of 10 franchisees from across the country to lead the evaluation and decision process," says Stu Boyd, senior manager of Franchise Business Systems for Ben & Jerry's. "The panel overwhelmingly supported MICROS, selecting the MICROS e7 running on the MICROS Workstation 5 as our next generation POS system."
"We are pleased to strengthen and expand our partnership with Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops," says Tom Moran, Vice President, MICROS Restaurant Sales & Strategies. "MICROS e7 is specifically designed for the restaurant that requires a simplified POS solution. We look forward to a successful deployment to the Ben & Jerry's franchise community."
