Challenge

The primary challenge was to accelerate theatre revenue through a digital transformation. Scope cinemas required a solution to increase online ticket purchases, effectively manage increasing workloads associated with day-to-day theatre operations & engage better with returning as well as new customers.

  • A systematic approach to manage & monitor counter staff was not in place.
  • Innovative ways to market & sell tickets through multiple sales channels was required.
  • Means of managing & coordinating with multiple movie suppliers efficiently were lacking.
  • The theatre did not have a convenient platform to reach out to consumers & keep them apprised of promotions.

Comprehensive fully-equipped Cinema Management System that facilitates the entire range of the company’s business processes & day-to-day operations.

  • POS Counter sales ticketing system empowered counter staff through collaboration & real-time data synchronization.
  • System to manage seat-inventory, promotions, ticket pricing & movie suppliers through a single platform.

Chief Executive Officer

LAYOUTindex was a name we first heard when we were on the lookout for a reputed IT solutions provider who could provide Scope Cinemas with a complete theater management. Our biggest problem was that we needed the complete solution provided to us within a few weeks time so that we could have the launch the newly renovated Liberty by Scope Cinema to coincide with the release date of a few blockbuster movies & we were glad when LAYOUTindex met the required deadline with an impressive solution.
