New mobile app launches phase one of digital partnership.
EVO Entertainment Group and Influx Worldwide have launched the first phase of a multi-year digital partnership, which promises to revolutionize out-of-home entertainment. The duo is teaming up to create a one-of-a-kind, personalized experience for EVO’s customers through cutting-edge technology and guest-facing solutions.
The first phase of the partnership has already delivered a brand new mobile app, developed by Influx, which makes it easier than ever for EVO’s guests to purchase movie tickets. Future phases will include deploying Influx's best-in-class food and beverage ordering technology, additional new features, and a new website, all integrated with EVO's Elevate Rewards loyalty program.
“EVO Entertainment is committed to providing the most innovative out-of-home experiences possible, using superior technology, service, and amenities,” said Mitch Roberts, CEO of EVO Entertainment Group. "With Influx's expertise, we are confident that this partnership will result in a truly modern, fully-functional digital platform that will enhance the overall guest experience."
"We are thrilled to partner with EVO and believe that our combined efforts will create a new standard for out-of-home entertainment," said Harish Anand Thilakan, CEO and founder of Influx Worldwide. "We are excited to see operators like EVO look at moviegoing alongside other entertainment options, therefore providing opportunities that our planned digital platform will help harness to deliver additional online revenue, increased loyalty, and a more exciting means of engagement."
EVO Entertainment uses a number of heterogeneous software systems to power its movie ticketing, food and beverage offerings, loyalty program, gift cards, game cards and bowling alley reservations, which traditionally have proven challenging to combine and offer as unified guest journeys. “Selecting a partner that could work with our disparate set of software systems was paramount and we're excited to partner with Influx to bring this to life,” added Roberts.
