On 30th August 2014, Micro Sun & Solutions PLC received the ERCA (Ethiopian Revenue & Customs Authority) certification for both the Front Office and point of sale software of the IDS Next Hotel ERP. This allowed MSS to sell IDS Next’s hotel software solutions across Ethiopia.
The ERCA is an autonomous federal agency responsible for collecting revenue from customs duties and domestic taxes. According to ERCA guidelines, all sales register users (transactions done via POS) must configure their fiscal printers to fulfill several obligations on the country’s taxation policy. Once the fiscal printer is configured as per ERCA norms, it ensures accurate taxation by recording every taxable transaction.
Integrating with IDS Solutions brought with it a myriad of benefits. Uniqueness is a striking feature of IDS Next’s Fortune NEXT 6i Suite of Hotel ERP, with its comprehensive 12 modules of the Hotel ERP all running on a single database. Hoteliers are assured that their guests’ payment card details are hacker-proof since the software is PA DSS Certified. The software is multilingual and facilitates multiple currencies further enhancing its user-friendliness. Fortune NEXT does not require a night audit shut down, has a host of short cuts for hotel staff to work faster, and has a robust guest history as well.
With the continuing professional support and knowledge transfer from IDS Next, MSS today provides support and services across Ethiopia for 50+ Hospitality customers and has created job opportunities for over 10+ local ICT Professionals. IDS Next technology has irrefutably empowered Hotels & Hospitality Industry sectors across Ethiopia to reach new heights.
