New Townsville stadium selects Oracle as F&B technology provider

New Townsville stadium selects Oracle as F&B technology provider
January 10, 2020

Oracle’s food and beverage technologies will be used to serve fans at the soon-to-open Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville.

Oracle’s MICROS Simphony Cloud Point of Sale systems will be fitted at the new venue to provide quick service for fans and elevate the game-day experience, with more than 160 Oracle MICROS workstations along with 15 Oracle MICROS tablets to be fitted.

The 25,000-seat venue, which will serve as the home of the North Queensland Cowboys NRL club and which is hoped to attract a range of entertainment events, is scheduled to open next month. It will feature 40 general admission food and beverage outlets and additional stations, along with three corporate experience bars.

Digital menus will also be fitted to display concession choices, with selections easily changeable to meet preferred dining options of event audiences.

Advising of the installation, Simon de Montfort Walker, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Oracle Food and Beverage, stated “no matter whether they are attending a sporting event or concert, fan expectations of venues have evolved greatly in recent years, and venues must maximise their use of emerging technology platforms to meet these demands, improve the experience and keep fans coming back.

“Oracle MICROS Simphony POS systems are designed to easily integrate with other systems so they can meet guests’ evolving entertainment needs as the stadium and surrounding area grow.”

Queensland Country Credit Union acquired naming rights to the venue last month in a six-year deal.
