Sionic Mobile’s m-commerce platform now connects directly with Oracle MICROS Point-of-Sale
High-volume eateries throughout the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport pilot fully integrated mobile-to-POS solution; restaurants can now connect with millions of Mobile Rewards App users, process faster, more secure mobile payments and instantly reward guests
ATLANTA, Ga. -- Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, Sionic Mobile today announced the integrated release of its award-winning ION Commerce Engine (ICE) with Oracle Hospitality MICROS POS solution. The integration provides a cardless, 3-digit checkout experience, enabling restaurants to quickly and securely process mobile payments, instantly reward guests and connect with millions of Mobile Rewards App users.
Airport restaurateur Hojeij Branded Foods (HBF) is one of the leading and fastest growing operators of food and beverage concessions in U.S.-based airports, with a portfolio of popular brands ranging from Arby’s and Chick-fil-A to Cat Cora’s Kitchen and P.F. Chang’s. Enabled by leading POS-provider Postec, Inc., HBF is among the first to pilot the new, fully integrated ICE-MICROS solution in select Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport restaurants. In the coming weeks, the company will be expanding the integrated service to other restaurants, POS systems and airport locations nationwide.
“We’re continually looking for ways to improve our guest experience,” said Regynald Washington, CEO of HBF, operating 40 brands with 73 locations in 14 airports. “Accepting digital payments from millions of Mobile Rewards App users then thanking them instantly in their preferred miles, points or other rewards is very appealing.”
Immediately following a successful mobile, 3-digit checkout, guests using the Mobile Rewards App receive instant rewards in their rewards currency of choice. As one of the only truly universal rewards programs, users can earn and spend rewards at any of the more than 100,000 retail and restaurant locations comprising the Mobile Rewards Marketplace.
Postec, Inc. President, Mike Seymour, said, “We had a swift and lightweight experience integrating Sionic Mobile’s ICE with the Oracle MICROS POS system. We’re pleased to support HBF’s desire for faster and safer mobile payments at their airport locations and look forward to offering the Mobile Rewards Marketplace opportunity to our other, non-airport customers as well.”
Sionic Mobile’s cloud-based ICE payment and loyalty platform powers multiple mobile pay and loyalty apps, reaching more than 150 million consumers. The company’s extensive GeoSenseⓇ beacon network drives merchant awareness and more frequent app usage. The platform is integrated with popular payment terminals and POS systems for enterprise clients, supporting mobile payments from most any iOS or Android device and any bank-issued credit or debit card.
Ronald Herman, CEO and founder of Sionic Mobile, said, “Restaurants, especially airport eateries, must be able to quickly serve guests, but still provide an exceptional service experience. Integrating our ICE platform directly with Oracle MICROS not only provides lightning-fast mobile payments processed by J.P. Morgan Chase, but also leverages our proven security and fraud prevention tools. We’ve designed this new solution to be the fastest digital checkout in the market while rewarding guests instantly, which encourages repeat business and builds brand loyalty even in an airport environment. We look forward to working with the teams at Postec, Inc. and HBF as we bring these latest innovations to restaurants throughout the airport and traveler rewards ecosystem.”
