PAR Springer-Miller Systems Extends the ATRIO® Platform with the Addition of ATRIO POS; the Industry’s First Multi-Tenant Cloud-Based POS System

PAR Springer-Miller Systems, Inc. (PSMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) and the leading provider of guest-centric hospitality management systems announced today the newest module of the ATRIO Hospitality Technology Platform, ATRIO POS. With ATRIO, PSMS pioneered and delivered a new generation of technology for the industry by moving the hospitality industry to The Cloud, creating a new user experience, and thereby a new way of doing business.

ATRIO POS, the next generation point of sale system, reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for hoteliers and management companies by embracing true cloud computing, minimizing on-property technology, and reducing implementation and training costs to increase staff efficiency and productivity.

Hotels and restaurants are increasingly looking to mobile applications to increase flexibility and efficiency. A native Windows 8 application, ATRIO POS offers an identical experience whether on a tablet or a stationary workstation. ATRIO POS incorporates natural gestures such as swipes and pinches into an intuitive and efficient ordering process.

By leveraging the multi-billion investment Microsoft made in Windows 8 and their Windows Azure platform, ATRIO POS delivers value with its purpose-built-for-the-cloud architecture. ATRIO POS eliminates the need for costly on-premise servers and complicated setup; it is also built to support operations in an offline mode, restaurants are never affected during a network outage. System administration resides in the cloud, allowing for efficient management configuration and reporting via web services for stand-alone restaurants and large multi-unit enterprises.

ATRIO’s Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), facilitates communication on the platform, not only between ATRIO’s modules but also with 3rd party systems. The ESB allows for greater integration within the suite of products and within the hospitality technology ecosystem as a whole.

Building upon the successful implementations of ATRIO Guest Experience Management, ATRIO POS represents the true promise of feature velocity and the expandable ATRIO platform. PSMS utilizes agile development methods to expedite the release of new modules, such as ATRIO POS, as well as frequent releases of product enhancements. New features are delivered in weeks or months as opposed to years.

The introduction of ATRIO POS on the heels of ATRIO Guest Experience Management combined with the innovative team allows PSMS to bring more modules in quick succession to the marketplace.

”ATRIO POS represents the next logical module in our strategy to keep extending the ATRIO platform to create a comprehensive service offering that possesses a number of highly innovative, industry-first capabilities. We continue to demonstrate to the industry that PAR Springer-Miller represents one of the few companies that delivers thought & practice leadership,” said Lawrence Hall, President and CEO of PAR Springer-Miller. “A fully integrated platform that leverages true cloud computing, a compelling ROI, and an innovative user-experience that delivers on the promise of “zero training” sets us apart from our competitors.”
