Smart Technologies has partnered with GetYourBill to provide customers with the facility to automatically generate electronic invoices in accordance with the local specifications and send these to the platform of the Italian Tax Authority. This partnership has enabled major catering brands using Oracle’s Hospitality Simphony, to be in compliance with the legal requirements in Italy. Oracle Hospitality Simphony is a point-of-sale (POS) system which facilitates the sale transactions of food and beverages operations, while GetYourBill is a leading Italian checkout and POS technologies specialist.
Smart Technologies CEO Joe Aquilina stated that Smart Technologies’ experience and expertise in software development, together with GetYourBill’s extensive knowledge of POS systems for the food and beverage industry, has facilitated the creation of a tailor-made extension to Oracle’s Hospitality Simphony package. This extension allows for various options and settings to enable full flexibility, depending on the requirements of the restaurateur.
Alvise Abù-Khalil, President of GetYourBill, explained that as a result of this collaboration, catering establishments can call up a VAT or Fiscal Code number for a client and get the respective client’s information in real time, thus speeding up the transaction and avoiding manual errors. Once a transaction is paid, the invoice is sent to GetYourBill’s system, which enables electronic invoicing through a user-friendly portal. He concluded by stating that “Smart Technologies is one of our most important long-standing partners. Apart from having developed for us the integration solution between Oracle Simphony and our GetYourBill gateway, we are also currently working together on the integration of Oracle Simphony with our solution for electronic receipts.”
