The Vista Group has signed an agreement with Odeon Cinemas Group to provide its cinema management software portfolio. Odeon, Europe’s largest cinema operator, with more than 360 cinemas located in 13 European countries, will deploy Vista across 120 cinema sites in the UK and Ireland.
The close integrations that exist between the Vista Group products have been recognized by Odeon as an opportunity to deploy a synergistic suite of software technology across their circuit. This is an approach to Vista deployments that will help Odeon meet their goals of providing an exceptional guest experience, whilst optimizing their business operations via collaborative systems and homogeneity.
According to Odeon Cinemas Group CIO, Ian Chapple, “We’re delighted to have selected Vista Group as a strategic partner to assist us in transforming our guest experience at Odeon. We recognize the strength and depth of the Vista proposition and the experience that they bring will be key to helping us evolve our technology platforms and take the business to another level.”
“Beginning 2019 in collaboration with Odeon is the best Christmas present our team in EMEA could have wished for,” said Mischa Kay, managing director of Vista Cinema, EMEA. “Aside from the importance of Odeon as a European powerhouse of exhibition, which adds to making our new partnership a total privilege, is the opportunity that Vista has, to excel in developing, managing and delivering cutting edge innovation through new products and services that span Vista Group companies.”

Our ability to deploy a wide-ranging integrated set of solutions for Odeon is a credit to the vision of our founders and to the capability of our teams across the business who imagine, design, develop and deploy technologies that delight our customers and enable the delight of their customers.”
