CHICAGO -- MICROS Systems Inc. and VeriFone Holdings announced a strategic alliance to arm the North American restaurant industry with an integrated pay-at-the-table solution that provides a secure way to collect payments, improves operational efficiencies and supports the consumer shift to PIN debit.
According to a news release, MICROS will resell VeriFone's customer-facing electronic payment solutions, including the new Vx 670 mobile payment system fully integrated with MICROS RES 4.0.
The global alliance between the companies provides the restaurant industry with easier access to total solutions from two of the leading suppliers in the industry, the release said.
