Curious as to what other theatres are using for ticketing and concessions, and why they choose that system. Obviously budget has alot to do with it but are there features that you find you just have to have or some that just don't matter.

We are considering a change. Currently are with an old old omniterm system. I have no quams with omniterm, just looking at what else is out there.

Our systme is so old we can't get a replacement monitor for tickets, which leaves us screwed if it ever breaks. We've scoured second hand stores and have a backup of 3 or 4 monitors but who know how long they will last.

Thanks

Mill,

If you go to Lobby and click on Search, put computer systems in the search field you will find 4 prior discussions on the subject.

We currently run Sensible Cinema and are generally happy with it. Last year at ShoWest we checked out all the POS systems and we decided to go with RTS. Greg Borr from RTS is a regular contributor to these forums and may chime in here at any moment. So we may be a little biased. But RTS is a great system. Several of our forum members use it. We will be chiming in here shortly with a first hand user's report when we get up and running.

Thanks

Having just recently converted from roll tickets to an automated system, I can give you some of our initial revelations. I think one of the most important considerations is the learning curve for your employees. The simpler the system is to run the less time you spend in training employees. You also need to a fairly good idea of the scope of information you will want to get back and in what form. We are using Greg's RTS system and are quite pleased with the program and their tech support. The RTS system has a very short learning curve and seems a very stable program.
