MaxBox confirm Caribbean kiosk deal worth over $6.5m

Always good to see what Andy Egan and Maxbox are up to, and here is latest release from them -- The MaxBox push for international expansion continues apace as they sign up Advanced Integrated Systems in Jamaica as exclusive distributors for the Caribbean and they place their first order for 300 kiosks.

The three year distribution deal with Jamaica based Advanced Integrated Systems (AIS) gives the company exclusive rights for distribution of MaxBox digital retail kiosks and all of its applications across the whole of the Caribbean.

AIS will initially focus on Jamaica to deploy the first order of 300 MaxBox kiosks, capitalising on the long standing links they already have with Jamaican companies across all business sectors – including government, retail, tourism and banking. They then plan to expand into other parts of the Caribbean.

Both companies are raring to go with the new deal and the AIS project team from Jamaica will be joining MaxBox in Cheshire in September for an intensive training and development session on software/hardware and application development and marketing of the MaxBox.

Stacey Halsall-Peart, Chief Operating Officer AIS

“We are very excited about achieving the official exclusive distributorship in the Caribbean for MaxBox. We firmly believe that with our existing government, tourism, banking and retail clients AIS will be able to offer another great solution to our clients for either sales or data capture. AIS specialise in putting together IT solutions and MaxBox now gives the opportunity for communication directly with the consumer, not just business to business. The initial order of 300 kiosks will get us started with our immediate clients, but we can really see this taking off in the Caribbean and hope to have 500 placed before Christmas”

MaxBox Digital Retail already deploy their touch screen digital retail kiosks across the UK and Ireland in retail, leisure, corporate workplace and transport sectors and with the help of partner distributors TCSJOHNHUXLEY have this year started to hit the casino and gaming sector worldwide. Deployment into the Caribbean augments MaxBox’s worldwide distribution push.

Andy Egan, Chairman and CEO MaxBox Digital Retail Ltd

“This latest distribution deal fills another gap for us in our worldwide distribution network, we are making good headway with the distribution deals we signed earlier in the year to hit the casino and gaming sectors and also into the retail sector in Ireland, and this new deal in the Caribbean gives us a really exciting new dimension to our business.”
