Columbia, Md. -- Micros Systems, a provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, has partnered with yogurt retailer Pinkberry to implement Google Wallet. The system, which allows Pinkberry customers to tap their device on an NFC (Near Field Communications) reader to quickly make their purchase and simultaneously redeem coupons and receive discounts, is now live in 69 Pinkberry locations in the United States.
In addition to Google Wallet, Micros’ other technology solutions that are installed at all of Pinkberry's U.S. locations include the fully integrated Micros point-of-sale solution and the MicrosPCWS 2010 state-of-the-art POS terminals.
“At the core of everything we do is our commitment to exceptional customer service,” said Tony DiCenzo, SVP IT, Pinkberry, which has more than 175 stores worldwide. “The rollout of Google Wallet underscores our goal of using innovative technology to enhance our customers’ experience. Now, with just a swipe of a smartphone, consumers can purchase Pinkberry products.”
“We are thrilled to have been selected as Pinkberry’s preferred POS technology partner and are greatly pleased to have watched Pinkberry expand and grow its concept so rapidly,” stated Ed Chapel, SVP Micros North America Distribution. “Micros understands Pinkberry’s need to provide superior service with highly efficient operations. We have worked together to create solutions that will benefit both Pinkberry as an organization as well as its customer base.”
