MICROS Systems, Inc. is debuting its new MICROS mTablet E-Series and the new MICROS Engagement feature at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show taking place in Chicago, May 17-20, 2014. These newest MICROS innovations allow staff members to perform multiple activities from one device, including making guest interactions extraordinary, while providing advanced capabilities that will significantly raise the bar on modern point of sale systems.
The MICROS mTablet E-Series allows hospitality and retail staff to elevate guest engagement. The mTablet E-Series, which is available in an eight-inch and eleven-inch size, offers an extended battery life, and operates on Microsoft Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro. The eight-inch handheld tablet is perfect for on-the-go staff, while the eleven-inch version is also fully compatible with the MICROS mStation base providing staff the flexibility to be mobile or use it as a workstation option with full peripheral connectivity. Optional sleeves for either mTablet size facilitate secure payment on the device.
The MICROS Engagement feature brings a highly animated and interactive element to the MICROS mTablet E-Series when running MICROS Simphony in a food and beverage establishment. The MICROS Engagement feature offers a fluid, beautiful touch experience with an ultra-modern look and feel with interactive live tiles that can display and promote numerous content including specials of the day and upcoming events, connection to the loyalty program, external content feeds for guest entertainment, and the ability to take orders. It is also very configurable and highly customizable for preference and can access actionable data, analytics and tools for management staff.
