Savantis Supports Inaugural Cinema Week to Promote the Return to Live Entertainment for Moviegoers
Savantis supports Cinema Week’s mission to enhance the moviegoing experience with its cloud-based, omnichannel Intelligent Entertainment Suite built on SAP.
Savantis, a leading provider of end-to-end solutions and support for the digital transformation of cinemas and entertainment venues, announced that they are pleased to support the inaugural Cinema Week campaign, a six-day nationwide event designed to energize moviegoers and encourage audiences to support local movie theaters. With a mission to celebrate the culture of going to the movies, the campaign showcases exclusive in-theater content, activations, giveaways, special offers for loyalty members, and celebrity guests with activities varying depending on the location. Cinema Week takes place June 22 to 27 across the US.
Savantis is proud to sponsor the first-ever Cinema Week, an exciting nationwide initiative to re-engage audiences and revive the cinema industry following a difficult and challenging year, during most of which theaters remained closed due to Covid-19, said Keith Hontz, CEO and President of Savantis. Both Cinema Week and Savantis are aligned in their mission to enhance the customer experience for moviegoers, so we felt very strongly that we must get involved and help preserve the culture, and the magic, of going to the movies, continued Hontz.
In November last year, Savantis announced the launch of its Intelligent Entertainment Suite (IES) omnichannel solution specifically developed for the entertainment industry as a flexible and scalable alternative to Vista and other legacy cinema management software. The application is fully integrated with SAP Commerce and SAP Cloud Platform, which delivers an unparalleled digital experience for end consumers of B2C enterprises.
IES offers a broad range of benefits, modern features, and functions for streamlined cinema management including rapid implementation with little to no downtime, seasonal scalability, and real-time business intelligence metrics, such as sales, cash office, venue occupancy, operations, and more. Hontz further explained that innovations such as: End-to-end contactless interactions, self-service kiosk ordering, personalized loyalty offers, and seamless, omnichannel engagement all work to enhance the moviegoer experience, attract new customers, and keep loyal guests coming back.
With its more than 25 consumer-facing and back-office accelerators, IES allows B2C businesses to build their brand and create lasting relationships with patrons while operations run more efficiently. IES by Savantis is available on the SAP Store, the digital marketplace for SAP partner offerings.
