March 21st – Oracle announced today the launch of our newest innovation – the Oracle MICROS Tablet 720. We’re excited about all its new features, but mostly about its relevance to you: This device has been designed from the ground up with the hospitality mission at its core.
Hospitality environments provide a unique set of challenges for every piece of equipment and technology. From kitchen grease to elevated temperatures to relentless use, such equipment takes quite a lot of punishment – and needs to be built to endure it. No one knows this better than Oracle Hospitality. Our fixed point-of-sale terminals have been standing up to this punishment for decades. I’ve seen our POS churn out orders whilst baking outdoors in the sun at seafront restaurants and freezing in specially themed ice bars across the globe.
The Oracle MICROS Tablet 720 has been designed with that heritage and pedigree. But the true value of a tablet built for hospitality is about so much more than ruggedness. It’s about intuitive design that understands and answers all your precise needs.
We know hospitality operators need device batteries that will last at least the length of a standard shift. Our new device couples extended battery life with the ability to hot swap batteries, ensuring minimum downtime and disruption. Recognizing operators need to tightly control budgets, we created our tablets with batteries that can be easily removed and charged – meaning there is no need to double up on devices. Batteries can be charged until ready and then hot swapped into the device.
We appreciate that when operators have invested in a device they need to maximize its use. The Oracle MICROS 720 Tablet can do so much more than take orders. It can be used for: management reporting, increasing customer engagement, ordering and stock taking, and RFID reading or bar code scanning. Whatever your requirement, this device can help.
We heard our customers when they told us ease of use was of paramount importance. This device has been designed to seamlessly integrate with the Oracle Hospitality Software Suite providing a solution that’s simple and intuitive to use.
