Sonic Corp. has selected MICROS as its strategic enterprise solution partner. Included in the solution is MICROS' point-of-sale for drive-in transactions, as well as MICROS' enterprise solution including Enterprise Management, Enterprise Inventory and Labor, Business Intelligence, and Loss Prevention systems for above drive-in operations.
According to a news release, this enterprise solution will be provided in a SaaS model providing an economic and streamlined approach for Sonic and its franchisees to deploy and maintain its technology.
Sonic's implementation of the MICROS solution has begun in corporate drive-ins and all new drive-in openings. Installations at existing Sonic franchise locations will follow shortly thereafter.
The MICROS solution will include a new audio system aimed to enhance the drive-in experience and simplify operations. MICROS also developed customized eLearning content for the Sonic Learning Management System, providing an interactive training experience, to reduce drive-in training and provide managers with both training scores and employee feedback.
"We look forward to standardizing our POS and Enterprise Back Office systems across the brand. MICROS' ability to quickly understand our requirements and develop a complete solution that exceeds our specific requirements was impressive," said Craig Miller, senior vice president and chief information officer for Sonic Corp. "We also look forward to improving customer service, operations and achieving gains in profitability through enhanced loss prevention, and better controls on inventory and labor.
"With MICROS' innovative food and beverage technology solutions, advanced eCommerce capabilities, and open systems platform, we are uniquely positioned to help Sonic increase guest satisfaction, facilitate business operations and grow its business," added Jenny Kurdle, executive vice president, United States & Canada for MICROS.
