Famous Brands' Wimpy Operations Given the OK to Use MICROS POS Solutions

Wimpy, the well-loved restaurant and original British burger chain owned by Famous Brands, has approved MICROS Systems as one of only two technology suppliers. The MICROS Restaurant Enterprise Series (RES) and mymicros.net solutions will be available to all Wimpy franchisees, who will benefit from a streamlined, integrated point-of-sale solution that provides greater control, improved security and profitability, and increased efficiency.

MICROS RES and mymicros.net offer Wimpy a unique series of integrated applications that includes Electronic Point-of-Sale, Enterprise Office, Restaurant Operations, and Corporate Applications that will help to build success through every level of their business, from assuring each customer gets the right order on time to controlling prices, menus, and profits.

"We require a technology solution that improves efficiencies in our back office operations, as well as efficiencies in the front of house, such as improving the service that we provide to our customers," says Willie and Ilze Opperman, owners of a Wimpy franchisee in Kings Lynn, which recently selected MICROS. "With MICROS RES, I have better control of my ordering and inventory, tighter security, and the ability to process management information quickly and easily. With mymicros.net, I can see near real-time data, and drill down into this information to provide me the necessary reports for analysis."

Benefiting from the successful initial installation at the King's Lynn location, the Opperman's recently installed MICROS RES and mymicros.net at their second Wimpy restaurant in Spalding, showcasing the new Wimpy global corporate identity. Adding to the successful solution at King's Lynn, the Spalding location is also using MICROS's Kitchen Display System (KDS), an intuitive graphical software application designed to increase efficiency and improve guest service through better kitchen coordination.

"We are committed to offering our community the very best technology solutions, and we are confident that MICROS will provide many benefits and demonstrate a tangible return on investment," says Anton Monstert, commercial manager, Wimpy UK.
