Vista Group company Vista Entertainment Solutions (VES) has announced the signing of an agreement with the Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC), to install their world leading cinema management software in KNCC theaters. KNCC is the largest cinema operator in Kuwait currently operating 11 cinemas totalling 54 screens and with plans to open additional sites over the coming year.
Following the roll-out of VES software into KNCC’s cinemas, planned during 2016, VES will have secured 100% of the Kuwait exhibition market due to existing customer partnerships with Grand and Sky Cinemas.
Further, the KNCC agreement means that VES software will be powering all of the major cinema chains within the Persian Gulf.
Continuing the growth of VES throughout the EMEA region, an increasing number of Large Circuit Market chains around the world are moving to using VES software, with Jinyi in China and Ster-Kinekor, South Africa, also announced as new VES customers in the past two months. KNCC will utilize the core VES products from VES’s fully interconnected suite spanning Vista Cinema, Head Office, and Customer Sales Channels, enabling a single and total cinema management solution.
“We are excited about rolling out Vista, a state-of-the-art system that can handle all of our business requirements and support us in delivering memorable experiences to Cinemagoers,” says Ahmad Al-Osaimi, CEO of KNCC.
“We are delighted to be able to partner with the Kuwait National Cinema Company,” says Mischa Kay, Vista’s Managing Director, EMEA. “We are already planning the support and assistance to KNCC that we provide to ensure that they can take full advantage of our world leading product and we look forward to working with them as their business expands.”
