Vista Cinema Ticketing Integrations
Can Factory have been collaborating on with Vista on complex software integration projects since 2010.
Working closely with Vista, Cineworld, Everyman and VOX Cinemas, as well as several external suppliers during the course of 2010-11, Can Factory first transitioned the Cineworld web application from Clarity Pacer Cats to Vista. The decision to adopt a phased back-office migration required that both cinema back-office solutions were simultaneously integrated. However, throughout the transition process, the user experience remained consistent for customers, regardless of whether individual cinemas used the legacy Pacer Cats back office, or had already been migrated to the newer Vista back office solution.
Subsequently Can Factory have continued to collaborate with Vista to integrate the Cineworld application with the Vista back-office systems to introduce new functionality and provide a greater level of integration across the suite of Vista modules.
Since that time we have continued to work on many projects for clients such as Everyman and VOX Cinemas (part of the Majid Al Futtaim group). You can see some of the highlights below.
