MICROS Systems Inc., a leading provider of information technology solutions to the hospitality and retail industries, announced that Burger King Corp. has selected the MICROS RES 4.0 Point-of-Sale (POS) solution for all of its approximate 800 company-owned restaurants in the U.S. The deployment is scheduled to begin in Atlanta, Georgia, in the summer of 2008 with 50 locations. The remaining company-owned restaurants will be completed over the next two years.
In addition to POS, Burger King Corp. will procure MICROS implementation services for training, installation, and go-live support. In the future, Burger King Corp. also plans to use the MICROS Help Desk and hardware services.
