Vista Group International’s Vista Cinema and Vivendi’s CanalOlympia have signed an agreement to roll out Vista Cinema’s Veezi across all its cinema venues.
CanalOlympia is a network of cinema and live performance venues in Africa. Its operation showcases the diversity of African culture and contributes to bringing cinemas back to countries short on entertainment choices and cultural infrastructure.
“The decision to choose Veezi was made to take advantage of a system that focuses on cinema ticketing. Using Veezi will allow CanalOlympia to manage the sites homogeneously and save a lot of time every week. The solution is a great choice for our operations and we’re very excited about it. The fact that Veezi is engineered by and supported by Vista Cinema is an additional bonus,” said Barbara Weill Head of Programming and Communication, CanalOlympia.
CanalOlympia have also partnered with Orange to promote the Cineday two-for-one SMS voucher program and Orange Money, their mobile payment solution, both of which will benefit from a Veezi integration. CanalOlympia will integrate Orange Money payments with Veezi’s internet ticketing solution, to allow customers to purchase tickets from the CanalOlympia website.
“The CanalOlympia operation is a fantastic project for Veezi to be part of. Clients that push the innovation front as CanalOlympia clearly does, provide us with equal opportunity to innovate and push Veezi functionality to new heights. We’re delighted to further extend our part in supporting Africa’s cinema industry by partnering with this very special company,” added Mischa Kay, Managing Director, Vista Cinema, for EMEA.
The CanalOlympia/Veezi roll-out will commence in October 2018 and conclude in February 2019 when the Circuit’s new sites are commissioned.
