MICROS Systems is hoping to redefine how restaurant operations' data is delivered to mobile devices with its release of MICROS inMotion, a mobile business intelligence tool for restaurants, according to a company press release. MICROS inMotion's user interface goes beyond the traditional presentation of dated statistics and instead provides eye-popping, real-time actionable information, said Mike L. Russo, chief technology officer, Restaurants at MICROS Systems. The native, full-featured free app is available through iTunes, as a mobile companion to mymicros.net, the Web-based reporting tool that provides business intelligence, loss prevention and operational data analysis.
MICROS inMotion was designed specifically for restaurant management and allows restaurant operators to understand both high-level trends and front-line operations using their smartphone, Russo said.
"MICROS has been delivering mobile business intelligence tools for many years now, and with MICROS inMotion we elevate to a new dimension with a stunningly beautiful native mobile app," he said.
A group of customers including, fast casual chain sweetgreen, evaluated the app and were "very impressed with the intuitive nature," said Don Schaefer, director of Operations for sweetgreen. "We are especially thrilled that we now have a way to view and manage immediate labor data for the entire enterprise, allowing us to better control overtime costs."
