MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce its seamless integration, sales and marketing partnership with ATX Innovations, Inc. using Tabbedout - a secure and innovative way to open, review and pay restaurant or bar tabs with a smart phone, representing a consumer cultural revolution in payment technology.

The partnership allows restaurant and bar merchants to deploy Tabbedout’s software quickly and easily through their existing MICROS POS software without any additional hardware requirements. MICROS and its authorized resellers will sell, install and maintain the Tabbedout application, making the process of adding consumer mobile payment processing easy and fast, without any downtime to the merchant’s system.

“In this recession, particularly in larger cities where there are many restaurant options, being the first to offer mobile payments integrated with social media provides a ‘cool factor‘ that is priceless,“ said Bob Amick, owner of Atlanta-based Concentrics Restaurants.  “Since deploying Tabbedout, which is fully integrated to our MICROS point-of-sale system, we have noticed that it not only attracts more patrons, it has increased table turns which is key as sometimes the hardest thing for a restaurant to do during peak serving time is to check someone out to increase speed of the table turn.”

“Tabbedout‘s powerful payment and marketing engine has enabled thousands of mobile payments at a network of restaurants and bars across 13 states in 49 cities,”  said Rick Orr, Tabbedout co-founder and CEO. “Combining MICROS’s technology and large network of key customer venues with our innovative mobile payment application, is a win-win for everyone involved.”

“Tabbedout, as a fully integrated extension of our current POS products, allows convenient customer payment and popular social media forums through mobile devices,” said Michael L. Russo, MICROS chief technology officer. “MICROS is an innovative company committed to supporting the very best in advanced technologies—as with Tabbedout-- that bring our merchant customers more revenue and improve the patrons’ experience at their venues.”
