How to Increase Sales and Serve More People in the Same Space

Oracle Hospitality Check-In 15 January 2018
Retail's Big Show in New York City, Oracle Hospitality unveiled today the Oracle MICROS Compact Workstation 310 and 310R with one goal in mind: Help you increase sales and serve more people in the same space. For operators in hospitality, sports and entertainment, and retail - with a limited menu offering and serving a high volume of customers in short durations - the Compact Workstation 310 is a 'game changer.' Smarter and more robust, the Workstation 310's transformative power lies in its name - Compact. Envision your current layout: You may have 6 or 7 (or even more) point-of-sale devices side by side. Your staff works tirelessly to process hundreds of orders within a short time span, keeping lines moving and ensuring customers are served and satisfied in quick fashion. But as good as your staff may be, your enterprise's success is constrained by space - or the lack of it. However, what if you could double the number of point-of-sale systems in that same space?

Is Cash Dead in the Hospitality Sector?

Oracle Hospitality Check-In 12 December 2017
The burger chain Shake Shack recently made headlines when it announced plans to open its first completely cashless restaurant in New York. Many other coffee shops, restaurants, and other hospitality operations around the world are making the same move. Cash brings a number of challenges to food service outlets; the cost of cashing up and banking every day, the lack of personalization options (as cash is anonymous), hygiene, and theft. However, the biggest issue for food service operators is speed. Guests want to be able to pay for food and drink quickly, and cash has become the slowest payment option thanks to the arrival of mobile payment and the simplification of EMV/Chip & PIN/contactless card processing. So is cash dead for hospitality operators? Are we getting close to the day when we can move exclusively to electronic payment methods? In our new report, Is Cash Dead In the Hospitality Sector? We asked over 15,000 consumers around the world about their use of cash and other pa

Inspired, Efficient Hotel Design with Innovative, Mobile Technology - That's Cabinn Hotels

Oracle Hospitality Check-In 27 November 2017
Inspiration can strike anywhere. For entrepreneur, Niels Fennet, it was on a family vacation. 27 Years ago, while Niels was traveling with his family from Denmark to Norway on the ferry, he was impressed by the efficient and effective ferry cabin design. The cabin offered an innovative use of space while providing everything the guest needed. Niels took this concept and created Cabinn Hotels, a Danish low-cost hotel chain, with four different levels of cabin-style guest rooms. Cabinn’s efficient low-cost offering appeals to a wide variety of customers, including businesspeople, millennials, families, and backpackers among others. Cabinn now has 10 properties across Denmark and continues to expand.

MoschMosch: Putting the Guest First with Oracle Point of Sale for Restaurants

Oracle Hospitality Check-In 22 June 2017
I was very excited about my visit to MoschMosch, an Oracle Hospitality customer with 12 table service noodle restaurants across Germany. Their strapline advises that 'ramen makes you slim and attractive' - who could turn that down? In fact, MoschMosch's total commitment to the guest is extremely impressive. Many restaurant groups talk about the importance of 'the experience', but at MoschMosch they know exactly what that experience needs to look like in all of their locations. We filmed our MoschMosch video with Christopher and Pamela in their Frankfurt business district location. At 11:45am the tables started to fill up with office workers dropping in for a quick, healthy lunch, and the flow of hungry guests didn't stop. Orders were taken, food and drinks were served, and bills were paid as quickly as the customers needed and wanted. Oracle Hospitality restaurant technology is supporting that fast, efficient, yet very friendly service. In the video Christopher and Pamela, talk us thro

Are you prepared for tomorrow's disruptive technologies?

Sushi-making robots churning out 3,600 pieces in an hour. Facial recognition systems identifying customers the moment they enter a hotel lobby. Wearable devices alerting restaurant servers and hotel staff that guests need prompt service. These innovations aren’t in the realm of science fiction anymore. They exist today and hospitality leaders, including F&B operators and hoteliers, already are capitalizing on some of them to distinguish their brands and gap the competition.
