Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle Hospitality

To anyone in my industry, I would not recommend this to them. However, if they are just a restaurant or a bar, then, yes. I can recommend it. Micros is just a software version of an analog cash register. Its only purpose is to ring in items and take payments, that's it. And it does that very well. If you need Micros to interface with other software you're going to have a bad time. FECs should stay away but restaurants/bars should jump on it.

Siriusware seems best suited for organizations that are working with many programs and events that are running at different times. You are able to easily check registration for different events at the same time which is very helpful. If you have staff that are focusing just on data analysis and reporting then Siriusware would be very useful for them. On the flip side if you need to train seasonal staff on the point of sale and process multiple sales in a quick amount of time then this is not the best fit. The interface can be clunky and slow especially when you have internet problems.

Pros

Oracle Hospitality

  • Micros' hardware has above average longevity, so long as you don't have a touchscreen in the kitchen.
  • Micros has a number of companies that allow integration into the POS, allowing you to add on pieces as you see fit.

Cons

Oracle Hospitality

  • Difficult to learn "coding" screen setup.
  • Outdated back of house operating system.
  • Hardware space - We always seem to run out of space on our back of house computer due to the size of the MICROS files.
  • Customer service is subpar. Reps on the phone never seem to know who I need to be transferred to to resolve my issue.
  • Hold time on customer service phone line. Every time I've called MICROS for help the call never takes less than 30+ minutes.
  • Customer service operations consistency. There's always a different solution for an issue when I call.

  • The integration with our CRM (Raiser's Edge) leaves much to be desired. It is kind of a mess.
  • There are a lot of moving pieces and if something gets inadvertently skipped during the backend set-up of forms, it can create real headaches.
  • It is not especially intuitive to use, in my opinion.

Alternatives Considered

CenterEdge is the point of sale we replaced 5 years ago and it was not by choice. I could get into specifics as to why the change was made to Micros but for our type of business, it is just not a good fit. I've said this countless times and I will say it again, Micros is great for restaurants and bars just not for our business model. If you have one of those types of businesses where you just sell food and drink, go for it! But if you need something that will tie multiple attractions, food and beverage, and entertainment into one point of sale. Look elsewhere like CenterEdge, which I have reviewed on here and is great for FECs. We have moved back to as it works with our type of business.

Any POS implementation is a lot of work, and a lot of learning for Admin, IT, management, end users, etc. This was selected by a consultant we hired. We have many regrets regarding the process, but are now kind of stuck and it is basically getting the job done. It is not ideal, but the people who chose this have learned a lot in the process.

Return on Investment

Oracle Hospitality

  • Micros has allowed us to leverage our margin by using our own credit processor and loyalty program. We've seen success from both of these platforms (not Micros) and have been able to save money on the extra costs of using Micros.

Siriusware Salespoint Solutions

  • It has allowed us to look at our total revenue more easily and figure out where we are falling short.
  • We do face more issues from the customer having difficulty registering for programs because of some of the limitations when being used as a online ticket point of sale.
  • It has allowed us to process refunds ourselves, which we were not able to do, which has allowed for better customer interaction.
