RMS Hospitality Solutions will introduce a new cloud-based touchscreen point-of-sale system at HITEC next month in Austin, Texas.

The cloud-based, touchscreen point-of-sale system features digital menu boards, kitchen video screens, customer-facing displays for advertising, and integrated security cameras. Mobile software for smartphones and tablets also is featured to support remote self-service ordering by guests. The solution comes equipped with an integrated web store for online ordering and features web reports that are ideal for multi-venue properties or franchise businesses. The RMS ePOS will be on display June 16 to 18 at the Austin Convention Center in Booth #2207.

"We are eager to attend HITEC for the first time and unveil our new ePOS as part of The Hospitality Cloud (also known as RMS 9+)," said Todd Sabo, RMS North America president and general manager. "This ePOS helps improve efficiency and profitability by streamlining tasks, increasing accuracy and producing reports when needed. It also has some very cool features that were not offered before with our legacy solution.

"We showed this product to hoteliers at the AAHOA Convention last month, and the food and beverage guys were going nuts over the digital features," said Sabo. "Of particular interest was the digital menu that can be displayed on tablets or high-def televisions, and the ability for guests to order food products direct from the hotel's website. This ePOS is just one element of The Hospitality Cloud that is also making its debut at HITEC. We anticipate this will be a very exciting show, not just for RMS, but for hundreds of hoteliers who are eagerly looking to take all core property systems to the cloud."

The Hospitality Cloud/RMS 9+ is a suite of a la carte technologies (including PMS, channel management, guest marketing, business intelligence, tour desk and more) designed to improve reservation management efficiencies and increase bookings via seamless, real-time online bookings and channel management integration. The RMS ePOS is an integrated component of 9+.
"Although RMS is new to HITEC, we're not new to hospitality," Sabo said. "More than 4,000 properties in 25 countries rely on RMS for their property solutions, of which 60 percent are now fully operating via the cloud."

Headquartered in Australia, RMS has been advancing its technology since 1995. Over the last five years RMS has been working on future proofing its solution by building a robust rules engine connected to a series of web services. This rules engine enables RMS to deliver rich technology using the latest and best web application available. For the last few years, that application was Microsoft Silverlight which delivered the previous web-based version of RMS9 in a timely manner. Work began earlier this year on the conversion from Silverlight to HTML5. While the experience for the user was seamless with Silverlight, RMS developers now have the tools they need with HTML5 to unleash the full power of RMS in the cloud, and at HITEC, hoteliers will get to experience 9+ – The Hospitality Cloud – for the first time.
