MICROS Systems, Inc., a leading provider of information technology
solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, and Kempinski Hotels
& Resorts, Europe’s oldest luxury hotel management company, announce
Kempinski is upgrading to MICROS OPERA Property Management Systems (PMS)
and OPERA Sales & Catering (S&C). The upgrade takes place in all new
Kempinski properties and those already using MICROS’s Fidelio V6 PMS. One
of the first installations will take place at the Abu Dhabi Conference
Palace, the largest hotel project in the Gulf and venue of the 2004 Summit
of the Gulf Co-Operation Council for Arab States (GCC).
Kempinski Hotels & Resorts has relied on MICROS products since 1991. After
spending 10 months researching and evaluating options for its next
generation hotel system, Kempinski selected to stay with MICROS, in part
because of the company’s extensive network of support and services.
Kempinski also chose the OPERA Enterprise Solution because it provided
real-time information and full integration with the Kempinski business
“Currently, 28 Kempinski properties on four continents depend on Fidelio
V6 for Property Management, Sales & Catering and Food & Beverage Control.
We also have MICROS 3700 and 8700 Point-of-Sale systems operating now,”
stated Wibecke Vinke, Vice President of Information Technology for
Kempinski. “MICROS has been a good business partner for us in the past and
we feel very comfortable in our decision to remain with MICROS for our
next generation system.”
“As Kempinski Hotels & Resorts broadens its base of installations
worldwide, MICROS can support the company’s plans with a product that
offers a 360 degree view of the business, along with service and support
wherever the hotels are located,” stated Kaweh Niroomand, Executive Vice
President, MICROS EAME Region. “Because MICROS continues to deliver solid
and functional software that meets Kempinski’s needs, we anticipate
helping Kempinski grow and gain market share.”
