Goodrich Quality Theaters – Excited to join the “Vista Family”
14th March 2011
Vista Entertainment Solutions is delighted to announce that Goodrich Quality Theaters will be replacing their existing cinema management software with the Vista suite of software.
Ross Pettinga, CFO & Treasurer of Goodrich Quality Theaters states: “We are very excited to be joining the Vista family of customers. We did a lot of due diligence during the selection process, and gathered feedback from a number of Vista’s existing customers. It is clear that the ongoing innovation in Vista’s products makes them a leader in the industry. For us though, the most telling thing was hearing consistently from different cinema companies about how enthusiastic and effective Vista’s ongoing customer support is – that is the key for us.”
Vista will be deployed across all 30 locations throughout Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. The modules purchased include: Kiosk, Internet ticketing, Vouchers / gift cards, Loyalty and Home Office (Head Office). Vista’s Home Office module will allow easy management of ticket prices, concessions and other data across multiple sites and regions from a centralized location, as well as provide powerful ad hoc reporting on cinema performance to management and executives. Transitioning to the Vista system will provide Goodrich with a robust and advanced platform that positions them well to make use of many of Vista’s other industry-leading innovations.
Some of the innovations that Goodrich plan to make use of once the initial roll-out is complete are, the Vista Facebook Application and the Vista i-phone application.
Vance Bowers, the Goodrich Director of Business Technology, says: “We are genuinely excited to partner with the fastest growing cinema software vendor in the industry. They offer a very capable and progressive application and the customers we have talked with have praised them for their responsive customer support. The service and reliability that we look to provide to our customers is what Vista is looking to bring to our company and we welcome them.”
Derek Forbes, Vista President – North America, states: “Goodrich Quality Theaters have a proud tradition of high quality and excellence in the cinema exhibition industry. The Vista software system will complement the Goodrich business, and the many innovations that are included will help Goodrich to continue to distinguishing their business as they move forward. This is an important win for Vista and is another step in our journey to becoming the number one cinema management software in the US market”
