Carlson Hotels Worldwide has selected the Micros e7 point-of-sale (POS) solution coupled with enhanced integration to Opera PMS, for its Country Inns & Suites By Carlson and Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts brands in the Carlson owned and managed portfolio.

Micros e7, developed initially for independent, limited service establishments, combines the reputation and reliability of MICROS's hospitality technology in an all-in-one MICROS Workstation 4 (WS4) with a powerful embedded software application based on the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system.

"Carlson has been very pleased with the Micros 9700, 3700 and Opera products currently installed in our hotels," stated David Sjolander, Vice President of Hotel Systems, Carlson Hotels Worldwide. "Now with the Micros e7, we can offer required functionality, ease of use and training, at the price point we desire for our Park Plaza and Country Inns & Suites brands."

"We worked closely with the Carlson team during a 90 day pilot at the Park Plaza in Bloomington, Minn., in order to fully test Micros e7 and the enhanced integration to Opera. As a result, we determined that this solution would be an ideal fit for Carlson Hotels that have limited food and beverage service," stated Jenny Kurdle, Executive Vice President of Leisure & Entertainment. "The successful pilot has allowed us to offer Micros e7 with enhanced integration to Opera PMS to all hotel customers in the limited service segment."
