Introducing the GloriaFood and Simphony POS integration

The integration of Oracle GloriaFood and Simphony POS provides restaurateurs with a complete digital restaurant management platform to increase online order sales, eliminate the need for restaurant staff to manually key orders into Simphony point of sale, and automate order data flow to the kitchen.

Automate your restaurant's business operations by populating and maintaining online menus from the point of sale. In the case of a menu item change, out of stock, or price change, the data only needs to be updated in Simphony (the POS).
