OIC & Simphony – Food & Beverage for All! By Niall Commiskey

imageWelcome to what will hopefully be the first post of many on integrating with Simphony. For those who don’t know –

The Simphony POS system from Oracle is built for complete restaurant management. Simphony powers the most successful food and beverage venues across the globe, from local cafés and iconic fine dining restaurants to global quick-service chains, stadiums, and theme parks. As an all-in-one cloud POS platform, it helps restaurateurs optimize their online and in-house operations in real time from any device.

I couldn’t have put it any better myself!

OHIP gives us access to Opera Cloud, the Hotel Property Management System. We all hope guests will visit the hotel bars and restaurants, where Simphony rules. Now we have REST apis that allow us to interact with this POS system.

This initial post will cover the basics, retrieving menu data from Simphony and displaying it in a Visual Builder app.

The Simphony folks kindly gave me access to a Postman collection – The first thing to note is the hierarchical nature of Simphony – e.g. I have an hotel chain, with multiple hotels, each of which may have multiple food and beverage outlets e.g. Commiskey Hotels EMEA has hotels in 40 European countries – mainly Ireland. Let’s look at one of them – Óstán Mac Cumascaigh, the pride of Baile Áthe Cliath. It has multiple bars and a fine restaurant, Jimmy’s Cistine.

Let’s transfer these entities to Simphony speak -  Read the complete article here.
