PAR Springer-Miller Systems, Inc. (PSMS) --- a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) and a leading provider of guest-centric hospitality management systems – announced their move of hospitality to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Azure cloud with the ATRIO Guest Experience Management platform.

The ATRIO hospitality technology platform is the most significant technology development to occur in the hospitality industry in the last 25 years. With ATRIO, PAR Springer-Miller Systems has pioneered and delivered a new generation of technology for hospitality; moving the industry to the cloud, a new user experience, and to a new way of doing business. This move to Windows Azure enables PAR Springer-Miller to take advantage Microsoft’s advanced technology, resources and domain expertise.

Purpose-built to utilize all the advantages of Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud, ATRIO dramatically reduces on-property technology requirements and the associated support staff. Deploying ATRIO in Windows Azure moves sensitive data safely off-property, reducing risk and enhancing information security.

Larry Hall, president and CEO of PAR Springer-Miller said, “Microsoft has proven invaluable in our efforts to bring much needed innovation to the global hospitality industry.  ATRIO has received tremendous market acceptance since our launch, and the Windows Azure cloud, upon which we built ATRIO, seems poised to emerge as the ’cloud of choice‘ for the global hospitality industry.  Our team of professionals have made invaluable contributions to the architecture, marketing, and positioning of ATRIO.  We place great value of this relationship.

“As the hospitality industry embraces cloud computing, it is looking to work with providers that can scale to support growth, be trusted, and most of all execute the vision that will allow the industry to benefit,” said Kim Akers, general manager for ISV partners at Microsoft. “Our cooperation with PAR Springer-Miller demonstrates our commitment to Windows Azure in hospitality.”
