Momentum for TransAct’s Revolutionary BOHA! Ecosystem Grows With Approval to Deploy BOHA! Hardware and Software Solutions With Large Canadian Fast Food Operator
Restaurant Operator Is Also Trialing Additional BOHA! Apps and Hardware Products Beyond Initial Approved Solutions
HAMDEN, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 8, 2019— TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today demonstrated growing momentum for the Company’s back-of-house BOHA!™ software and hardware ecosystem with a corporate approval to begin selling several BOHA! solutions to more than 1,000 Canadian fast food franchise locations. Sales initiatives for the approved BOHA! solutions to the franchise locations are expected to begin later this month and the contract is for a period of three years.
Pursuant to this new three-year agreement, the initial BOHA! deployments at this large Canadian operator’s franchise locations will include the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (TEMS) alongside the BOHA! Terminal. TransAct’s agreement also includes a commitment for the locations to use TransAct Labels specifically designed to work with the thermal printers featured in the BOHA! Terminal. Based on the initial deployment schedule and an expectation that initial franchise locations will use a limited number of small labels per day, TransAct believes the annual recurring average revenue per unit (“ARPU”) for this agreement will be approximately $275 per year. The Company is also working with the operator on the evaluation of five other BOHA! apps and two additional BOHA! hardware solutions for potential deployment at franchise locations at a later time.
Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “We’re pleased to have secured this agreement with a respected Canadian fast food operator and honored by the level of confidence they have in BOHA!’s ability to help their franchisees achieve improved performance across their back-of-house operations. We are also excited by the potential to continue to work to expand this relationship as we collaborate with our newest customer to evaluate and understand the further benefits that can be derived from deployment of additional BOHA! software and hardware solutions.
“As awareness grows around BOHA!’s ability to drive measurable improvement across restaurant and foodservice operators’ bottom line and how it allows employees to work more efficiently and deliver improved customer service, we are beginning to see significant momentum for new orders. We are pleased with our sales progress since the launch of the BOHA! SaaS-based software and hardware ecosystem in March and we continue to execute on what is the largest market opportunity in our history.”
BOHA! is the first single-vendor solution to combine applications for Inventory Management, Temperature Monitoring of Food and Equipment, Timers, Food Safety Labeling, Food Recalls, Checklists & Procedures, Equipment Service Management and Delivery Management in one fully-integrated platform. Each BOHA! solution combines cloud-based SaaS applications with hardware and accessories to deliver superior results for critical back-of-house operations. BOHA! offers a one-stop solution for restaurants and food service companies to address their current back-of-house operating requirements while providing a future-ready platform capable of addressing back-of-house operations as they continue to evolve. BOHA! Terminal includes TEMS (TransAct Enterprise Management System) to ensure only approved apps and functions are available on the device.
