Kiwi software firm seals Box Office French distie deal

"We are excited and proud to become Vista’s business partner for the French market."

Vista Entertainment Solutions (VES), a company of New Zealand-based Vista Group International, has signed a distribution agreement with a cinema software service provider for the French cinema exhibition industry.

As outlined to the New Zealand stock exchange on April 15, the company has finalised a deal with Côté Ciné Group (CCG), which was executed in Cannes where the new business partnership is being introduced to the French cinema market.

Terms of the deal will see CCG become the distributor of Vista and Veezi software in France, the largest box-office market in Europe.

“We are excited and proud to become Vista’s business partner for the French market,” says Patrick Farcy, President, CCG.

“Their software is recognised throughout the cinema world, and we believe that the combination of their technology and our in-depth knowledge of the French exhibition market will be a winning formula for French cinemas; a world-class platform with local service.”

Under the Agreement, CCG will progressively upgrade current customers of CCG to Vista.

With the combination of CCG’s existing client list and new Vista customers (such as Kinepolis Group), Vista stands to build a leading market share in France.

“We have been very impressed with the track record of CCG,” adds Mischa Kay, Managing Director, Vista’s European operations.

“Over the past few years, they have become a reference player in the French market.

“We are confident that by combining their market expertise and our technology, we can take ticketing to the next level and add significant additional value for French cinema exhibitors.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
