Carlson Hotels Worldwide expands its partnership with Micros by selecting the Micros Opera Enterprise Solution to power the property management functionality of Harmony Plus, Carlson's technology platform for its global hotel brands - Regent International Hotels, Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Country Inns & Suites By Carlson, and Park Inn.

"Micros is excited to expand its partnership with Carlson Hotels Worldwide," stated Tom Giannopoulos, Chairman and CEO of Micros Systems, Inc. "Micros -Fidelio V6 was a strong foundation for the Harmony system, and Micros Opera will be even stronger as the new generation of Harmony Plus is deployed throughout the world."

The full Opera system will be used in Carlson's three full service brands, Regent, Radisson, and Park Plaza, and a simpler, scaled down version called Opera Xpress will be used by Carlson's select service brands, Country Inns & Suites and Park Inn. Carlson is currently rolling out Harmony Plus to its new hotels, and all existing hotels will convert to Harmony Plus by the end of 2007.

"Driven by the powerful Micros Opera Property Management System, Harmony Plus is the foundation for all future technology hotel applications," said David Sjolander, Vice President of Hotel Information Systems, Carlson Hotels Worldwide. "We are committed to developing systems that make it easier for our franchisees to do business with us by providing one solution for all of our brands."
