PLAYA VISTA, Calif. – (August 29, 2017) Appetize, the modern point of sale (POS) company transforming foodservice and retail transaction technology for major venues at scale, announced today that its cloud-based system has been integrated into four new convention centers. These venues collectively host over 800 events annually with hundreds of thousands of attendees, and will now, through Appetize’s industry-leading technology, evolve their overall attendee experience and back-of-house management.

Appetize Technology has increasingly become the go-to digital and cloud-based POS technology for leading organizations, venues and theme parks, among other verticals. The company’s popularity is centered on the fact that it offers enterprise dependability, plus modern day features such as real-time inventory reporting and end-to-end facility implementation.

Appetize’s advanced POS system will now be featured in these professional venues:

  •   San Jose McEnery Convention Center
  •   Wildwoods Convention Center (New Jersey)
  •   Phoenix Convention Center
  •   Overland Park Convention Center

Built on the latest mobile operating systems for iOS and Android, the company’s robust, scalable and reliable suite of innovative solutions solve the challenges that convention center managers have struggled with – how to quickly and efficiently process the latest tech-based payments when using outdated POS systems.

Attendees of conventions, trade shows, and consumer events will enjoy a swift checkout experience through Appetize’s kiosks, handheld ordering tablets, and state-of-the-art POS systems. The company’s advanced features arm venue managers with a simple way to collect customer purchase preferences via real-time inventory management and paperless backend reporting. Some of the nation’s top sports and entertainment venues, quick serve restaurants, universities, and other professional properties depend on Appetize to streamline their businesses and help maximize their revenue.

“Appetize’s unique technology can be tailored to the specific needs of any venue keeping pace with an increasingly cashless society” said Kevin Anderson, chief strategy officer, Appetize. “We are proud to provide a turnkey revenue generating option to convention centers and the large events they produce.”

Backed by private equity firm Shamrock Capital, Appetize launched in 2011 and has quickly grown its concessions technology to serve the country’s largest sports and entertainment venues, amphitheaters, college campuses, and other organizations, venues and retail destinations. Appetize is quickly outpacing systems from traditional competitors including Oracle Micros, Agilisys and NCR.
