Ticketing Kiosks, Fujitsu and Movie Theatres

RICHARDSON, Texas, Nov 03, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. has partnered with Ready Theatre Systems (RTS) of Hartford, Mich. to provide Fujitsu's U-Serv 100 and U-Serv 150 self-service kiosks to movie theater companies across North America.

Under the agreement, RTS will integrate its RTS Ticketing Software with the Fujitsu kiosks and Fujitsu will provide ongoing hardware services and maintenance for the systems. Currently, RTS software is installed in more than 1,000 theaters across the United States.

"RTS is well respected among movie theater owners, and will be an excellent partner as we continue targeting our U-Serv kiosks and other technology to that industry," said Cathy Boss-Fessel, director marketing, channels/alliances for Fujitsu Transaction Solutions. "Their niche among Tier 3-5 companies will help us reach theater chains of all sizes."

Fujitsu's U-Serv systems are versatile self-ordering kiosks designed for a variety of food-service and entertainment venues such as quick-service and family casual restaurants, casinos and theatres. The kiosks complement and easily integrate with existing point-of-sale (POS) systems, helping companies improve service and lower costs by reducing peak-time traffic and redeploying labor to more productive activities.

"We've had significant demand from our client base for Fujitsu's quality U-Serv solutions, and this partnership will benefit those customers and attract new business," said Mary Snyder, director of operations at RTS. "The U-Serv kiosks, combined with our RTS Ticketing Software, offer a fast, user-friendly system that will greatly benefit both theater companies and movie-going patrons."
