The UK’s largest independent multiplex cinema chain, Apollo Cinemas, recently installed new electronic point-of-sale (EPoS) systems. It has equipped each of its 14

cinemas with EPoS systems comprising PC-based touchscreen terminals from J2 Retail Systems that are running software from Vista Enter tainment Solutions. Between them the cinemas have 40

points of sale, each a J2 615 terminal running Vista POS and enterprise

management software, for ticketing and food, drinks and confectionery sales. Imtiaz Ullah, head of IT at Apollo

Cinemas, said: “We pride ourselves on being innovative when it comes to technology.We were the first fully digital circuit in the UK and use equipment such as Sony 4K Digital Cinema projection, Real D screens and Dolby Surround sound that produces a picture detail at the highest level the human eye can see. “We are equally demanding when

it comes to the systems that run our commercial and customer-facing operations. Efficiency at the point of sale is critical to keep queues down and customer service standards high. The performance and reliability that the J2 terminals give us is critical, as is the range of functionality at front-of- house and in the back office that Vista provides to run our business.” It is also developing existing and

new cinemas to include café-bars, lounge areas, gaming andWi Fi.
