Munich, Germany – Schloss Elmau, a luxury spa resort in Munich, has selected Infrasys Cloud for their point-of-sale (POS) platform.
Infrasys, a Shiji Group Brand, delivers a cloud-based POS designed for enterprise hotel operations. With over two decades of building POS systems for the hospitality industry, Infrasys is one of the most versatile and proficient systems on the market and has over 7,000 installations today.
Schloss Elmau was looking to switch to a POS system that was feature rich, flexible and user friendly, so that their team could manage the system on their own with less dependency on the POS vendor. Based on this criteria, Infrasys proved to be the right fit, as the software was designed to be easily customized. This design allows Schloss Elmau to make configuration changes to the software without assistance from the Infrasys support or development teams.
In addition, Schloss Elmau appreciated the hardware agnostic design of Infrasys. The flexibility to use any type of hardware device and operating system, significantly lowered their financial investment as they are able to re-use the existing POS workstations that they had previously installed throughout the resort’s 16 dining outlets.
Schloss Elmau deployed Infrasys POS on iPhones throughout their property providing more opportunities to improve interactions with their guests. With Infrasys’ flexibility, the resort has the option to add additional iPhones to their portfolio, or even Windows and/or Android devices at any time, without worrying about a disruption in service or compatibility troubles. Infrasys is built to have the same user experience across different hardware devices, whether a mobile device or POS workstation, reducing the need for additional training.
Dietmar Mueller-Elmau, CEO of Schloss Elmau stated: "It was important to us to select a point-of-sale vendor that not only provided professional customer service, but also a cloud based mobile POS System which has a fast reaction time and is very easy to use and reliable. The state of the art systems architecture allows us to adapt to changing requirements indifferent outlets in a timely and reliable fashion, which we need to stay competitive.”
“Having the chance to work with Schloss Elmau is tremendous. We are proud to be their POS partner, and are pleased that Infrasys has already had a positive impact on their operation. We look forward to the continued partnership” said Sven Maas, Senior Vice President for EMEA at Shiji Group.
