Mobile technology company QikServe announced that its mobile ordering app is now available through the hosted MICROS Commerce Platform (MCP) from MICROS, a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries.

Customers using MICROS for point-of-sale can now extend their systems to include QikServe’s mobile ordering and payment service, providing an end-to-end mobile solution from customer order through to fulfillment and back-end systems. This means that hospitality businesses can provide customers with the choice to order and pay for food and drink through their smartphones seamlessly through their existing POS system.

Integration with POS systems has been identified as a key hurdle to widespread adoption of mobile ordering solutions, which typically require businesses to use additional hardware, such as tablets or wireless printers.

“We are pleased to be able to provide our customers with QikServe mobile ordering functionality," says Tim Brown, SVP eCommerce at MICROS. "With QikServe, hospitality operators can offer their customers more choice in how they order and pay for their purchases."

“The integration between QikServe and MICROS is another step forward in bringing mobile ordering and payment technology to the masses,” says Ronnie Forbes, CEO, QikServe.
