It’s clear from these early sales and from the high level of ongoing customer discussions and customer trials of our BOHA! solutions that we are at the forefront of offering the restaurant and foodservice industries a compelling suite of integrated software applications and hardware solutions to automate their back-of-house operations. This early level of interest across a broad array of customer sizes and operational complexity confirms our belief that BOHA! represents the largest single addressable market opportunity that TransAct has had in our history.”

For the first time, operators can deploy a full, single-vendor suite of integrated software applications and hardware solutions to automate their back-of-house operations. Given the priority placed on having employees deliver the best customer experience in an environment with rising food and labor costs, all restaurant and food service companies are focused on adding automation and reducing administrative tasks in their back-of-house operations to increase efficiency and lower costs."

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “The launch of our new BOHA! SaaS-based software and hardware ecosystem marks a significant milestone for TransAct and the restaurant and foodservice industry. For the first time, operators can deploy a full, single-vendor suite of integrated software applications and hardware solutions to automate their back-of-house operations. Given the priority placed on having employees deliver the best customer experience in an environment with rising food and labor costs, all restaurant and food service companies are focused on adding automation and reducing administrative tasks in their back-of-house operations to increase efficiency and lower costs.

“Over the last several years, we have spent considerable time working with operators across the industry, including in their kitchens, to determine how best to help them address these critical needs. One of our key learnings was that restaurant and food service operators want to simplify their processes with a single platform, single portal solution that provides the highest level of relevant features and functionality while eliminating the complexity of managing multiple software and hardware products from multiple vendors. The result of our tireless efforts is the development of BOHA!, an innovative range of products that can address what we believe is a large opportunity to offer automated solutions that streamline critical back-of-house processes. With BOHA!, TransAct is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive ecosystem of cloud-based SaaS apps, hardware and accessories.”

BOHA! SOLUTION SUITE

At launch, the BOHA! ecosystem will feature the following SaaS-based apps, functionality and hardware solutions:

BOHA! Inventory

BOHA! Inventory provides the fastest and most accurate way to manage inventory in restaurant and foodservice operations. BOHA! Inventory is a complete inventory management solution that allows any restaurant employee, not just managers, to enter inventory counts by scanning barcodes, tapping through a list, or using voice recognition. BOHA! Inventory users can also submit new food orders through the app which builds a “suggested” re-order based on previous usage data. The receiving process is also simplified with BOHA! Inventory linking distributor invoices to purchase orders and managing quality complaints, eliminating the need to call or manually submit information. BOHA! Inventory works on the BOHA! Handheld.

BOHA! Temp

BOHA! Temp improves HACCP compliance and restaurant brand standards by effortlessly walking employees through each step of the required food temperature taking process. If any food item is measured out of its specified temperature range, the app walks the employee through the necessary corrective action steps. BOHA! Temp also creates daily and weekly logs that can be provided to internal auditors or health inspectors. BOHA! Temp works on the BOHA! Handheld and is integrated with industry-leading Bluetooth temperature probes.

 

BOHA! Sense

BOHA! Sense uses BOHA! Sensor IoT devices installed inside refrigerators, freezers and walk-ins to monitor temperatures in real time. BOHA! Sensors connect via LoRa (Long Range) signal technology to transmit through walk-in refrigerators and freezers to BOHA! Gateway which then delivers temperature readings to the BOHA! Cloud. Whenever temperatures are measured out of range, the BOHA! Sense app alerts users via messages on the BOHA! Handheld while also sending text and email alerts. BOHA! Sense works on the BOHA! Handheld.

BOHA! Checklist

BOHA! Checklist efficiently manages the scheduling of tasks, tracking completion and ensuring the work is completed from opening and closing procedures, to daily and monthly preventative maintenance tasks and much more. BOHA! Checklist is supported on the BOHA! Terminal, as well as on Android and iOS tablets.

BOHA! Food Prep

BOHA! Food Prep calculates how much food to prep each day based on sales and inventory metrics. The BOHA! Food Prep app offers step-by-step prep instructions for each ingredient, including how-to-videos and associated documentation directly on the BOHA! Terminal and allows users to print date code labels.

BOHA! Labeling

TransAct’s offering for food safety and grab ‘n go labeling on the BOHA! Terminal has been fully re-developed as BOHA! Labeling. BOHA! Labeling allows restaurant and foodservice operators to set up their menu and label designs in the cloud for easy set-up and review and to ensure compliance with company standards. Updates made in the BOHA! cloud can be delivered to BOHA! Terminals in real time. BOHA! Labeling can be combined with Media Library to give employees access to training materials, recipe cards, how-to videos, plating instructions and much more.

BOHA! Food Recall

BOHA! Food Recall fully automates the food recall and withdrawal process, ensuring increased compliance. Restaurants are instantly alerted if they are carrying affected product and employees are given instructions on how to proceed, automating workflows as well as delivering talking points on the recall for use with customers. BOHA! Food Recall delivers alerts and notifications via e-mail and text messages.

BOHA! Service

Managing service and warranties for restaurant equipment can be trying for even the best operators. With BOHA! Service, operators can request equipment maintenance and receive, edit, approve and pay for service from approved service providers, all within the app. Service records are tracked in a blockchain network for the life of the equipment. BOHA! Service works on the BOHA! Handheld.

BOHA! Delivery

BOHA! Delivery is a powerful tool for restaurant operators that want to eliminate the need for multiple tablets and printers when using multiple online ordering systems. BOHA! Delivery will aggregate delivery orders into the BOHA! Terminal and allow for printing of work order labels to properly stage and prepare customer orders.

BOHA! HARDWARE

BOHA! Terminal

BOHA! Terminal is purpose-built to revolutionize how kitchen staff prepare and label food and grab ‘n go items. The BOHA! Terminal includes two label printers and a large touch-screen for displaying graphics and videos for recipe cards, plating instructions and other training and onboarding materials. BOHA! Terminal includes TEMS (TransAct Enterprise Management System) to ensure only approved apps and functions are available on the device. TEMS also allows TransAct to deliver over-the-air app, operating system and security updates directly to each BOHA! Terminal.

BOHA! Handheld

BOHA! Handheld is a powerful, rugged mobile device, specifically developed for use in restaurant and food service kitchens. Water and food particles are the fact of life in kitchens and IP67 compliance ensures the BOHA! Handheld performs day in and day out. BOHA! Handheld is equipped with an extended battery to accommodate even the longest shifts. Its integrated infrared scanner also allows for use with the BOHA! Inventory app.

BOHA! Sensor and BOHA! Gateway

BOHA! Sensor monitors the temperature inside refrigerators, and freezers and walk-in equipment as well as dry storage areas. Using LoRaWAN signal technology, which allows for signals to communicate through metal, BOHA! Sensor ensures that temperature readings are delivered in real time to the BOHA! Gateway.

BOHA! Gateway is a hub that aggregates temperature readings from all BOHA! Sensors and sends the data to the cloud to the BOHA! cloud servers.

Mr. Shuldman concluded, “From the time we introduced our first restaurant solutions offering, we have continued to evolve our capabilities based on detailed feedback from industry participants. With BOHA!, TransAct is excited to introduce an industry-first, all-in-one ecosystem that supports our commitment to helping restaurants and food service companies deliver clear and measurable improvements to their bottom line, at the same time freeing up employees to focus on improving the customer experience.”

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “TransAct has made significant progress in terms of product functionality, industry awareness and sales momentum since we first introduced our AccuDate restaurant solutions several years ago.

Epicentral Delivers Casino Revenue Growth

Epicentral has been the gaming industry’s only enterprise-level promotion and bonusing software solution for more than five years. It allows operators to easily target and provide printed bonuses in real-time to players while they play on the casino floor.

Hamden, CT and Islandia, NY – October 2, 2017 – TransAct Technologies Incorporated (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, announced today that the first deployment of Epicentral SE, TransAct’s new systems edition of its Epicentral promotion and bonusing print system, is now live at Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino in Islandia, New York. Used in conjunction with the Aristocrat OASIS 360™ slot management system and TransAct Epic 950 printers, Epicentral SE is powering the delivery of printed offers, including free play vouchers delivered to players directly at the Long Island casino’s 1,000 video lottery terminals (“VLT”) which they can redeem while playing.

Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino is located adjacent to Exit 58 of the Long Island Expressway and features 1,000 VLTs as well as a 227-room hotel, off-track betting (OTB) wagering and several food and beverage options. The hotel is owned by global hospitality company Delaware North, which also manages the gaming portion of the venue for Suffolk Regional OTB.

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies, commented, “We are excited that Delaware North and the Jake’s 58 team selected Epicentral SE to power new bonusing opportunities for their players and are delighted to be working with Aristocrat to extend the capabilities of their powerful OASIS 360 system. In what has become a highly competitive industry environment, TransAct believes that the real-time delivery of bonuses via a printed voucher is a differentiated way for operators to drive increased visitation and play among their patrons. The ability to print playable vouchers, redeemable at the game, is an unrivaled feature of our Epicentral SE system, an easy-to-implement add-on to slot management systems like OASIS 360 that transforms the bonus environment on casino floors. We look forward to working with Jake’s 58 as they fully leverage the capabilities of Epicentral SE.”

Chuck Kilroy, General Manager of Jake’s 58, commented, “Since opening in February 2017, Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino has attracted a dedicated following of customers from across Long Island. In working to expand our offers and promotions, we recognized that delivering real-time bonuses to our customers would be an attractive way to interact with them while they are playing one of our 1,000 VLTs and electronic table games. We chose TransAct’s Epic 950 printer for our machines in part because it allowed us to implement Epicentral SE. We are delighted with the results driven by Epicentral SE to date, and our marketing and gaming teams look forward to exploring the ways we can expand our bonus and promotion offerings going forward to further excite our players.”

Angelo Palmisano, Vice President of Systems Product of Aristocrat Technologies, added, “Integrating the capabilities of Epicentral SE into the proven bonus offerings enabled by OASIS 360 is a no brainer, as printed coupons are an ideal way to get players’ attention and drive increased slot floor activity. By working in close collaboration with the team from TransAct, we were able to quickly upgrade the power of what we can deliver to Jake’s 58 through our OASIS 360 slot management system and further aid our customer in their delivery of an attractive casino gaming environment, all while tracking player activity and the effectiveness of their promotions.”

Epicentral is the industry’s only enterprise-level promotion and bonusing software suite, providing for the real-time delivery of targeted promotions to customers directly at slot machines and electronic table games. TransAct’s new systems edition of Epicentral, Epicentral SE, allows operators to use the existing bonusing capabilities of their slot management systems to offer bonuses to players as a printed coupon by leveraging Epicentral’s Print Manager and Design Center modules.
