Introducing SimphonyTM
SimphonyTM is the first enterprise-enabled, point-of-sale (POS) solution built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA).  SimphonyTM’s modern, flexible architecture provides never before seen scalability, resilience and integration capabilities.

A Simphony installation can scale from a single location with a handful of workstations to a multiproperty enterprise with thousands of workstations. The solution may be self-hosted or in one of MICROS’ four global datacenters, which provides customers with flexible deployment options to meet their technical capabilities.  There is no requirement to deploy anything more than workstations at the property level, eliminating the need to purchase additional server hardware for the properties.

The SOA design of the product allows for mission critical services like credit cards, property management interfaces and gift cards to be deployed at the property.  This feature allows Simphony to be configured in a way that reflects the processes and flow of the business and ensures uninterrupted front of the house operations in the event of datacenter communication interruption.

Simphony’s scalability, architecture and robust operations positions it as a leader in the next generation of POS solutions.

Introducing MICROS W4 LX and MICROS WS5
Built on the success of the revolutionary MICROS WS4, the WS4 LX is a client hardware device that has a lower total cost of ownership, simpler support model and improved reliability, while still being functionally superior to current PC-based clients at a much lower cost. While outwardly almost identical to the Workstation 4, the WS4 LX is a complete technology refresh, offering vastly improved performance and functionality.

MICROS WS5 is the big brother to the WS4 LX.  WS5 offers very similar performance characteristics to the WS4 LX, but features a new form factor with a 15-inch LCD and integrated biometrics. The WS5, with its increased performance, enhanced platform options and flexible installation options, is ideal for locations that can benefit from the larger screen size, like bars or quick service operations.
