Veezi noted a 230% increase in online transactions for their customers from November to December 2015, a direct result of the film’s phenomenal performance. Meeting this need, Veezi provided significantly increased computing resources to its customers for this cinematic ‘event’ with no outages recorded and with no additional charges.
“We were excited and a little bit anxious as the release date for Star Wars: The Force Awakens approached,” said Matthew Preen, Veezi’s Worldwide General Manager. “Our Infrastructure Management team anticipated what the increased demand would be and how best to enable our customers to meet it. That preparation resulted in a flawless performance, no outages at all. That’s a testament to the efficacy of our cloud-based theatrical management system and another explainer of the product’s phenomenal global rate of growth.”
Veezi always provides 24/7 technical coverage but really upped the ante and had a significant increase in on-call staff ready to jump in to fix issues at a moment’s notice. Personnel in Los Angeles, London, and New Zealand were mobilized and... nothing happened! A great anti-climax if ever there was one.”
“The performance of Veezi reaffirms our decision to develop the product as a cloud-based SaaS solution,” said Kimbal Riley, Chief Executive of Vista Entertainment Solutions. “Independent theatre owners find themselves in an increasingly competitive environment and we’re thrilled that Veezi’s performance on one of the highest grossing films in cinema history was flawless.”
Veezi, a cloud-based cinema management solution, was developed by Vista in response to a recognised gap in the independent cinema circuit sector and was launched in 2012. Like Vista, Veezi is a global offer and already has a customer base across 16 countries as of December, 2015.
