TransAct Expands Relationship With Existing Restaurant Solutions Customer With Agreement to Deploy BOHA! Software and Hardware Solutions to Manage New Food Concept Opening at 220 Locations
Convenience Store Operator Continues Solution Evolution with Plans for Nearly 50% Increase in BOHA! Terminal and App Implementations
HAMDEN, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today announced the significant expansion of a relationship with a current user of its BOHA!™ software and hardware ecosystem. Pursuant to the expanded agreement, the domestic convenience store operator will deploy a second BOHA! Terminal along with the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (“TEMS”) at 220 of the 450 locations where these BOHA! solutions are already deployed. The expanded deployment will help TransAct’s customer manage a new food offering they plan to open inside certain existing locations.
Pursuant to this new three-year agreement, the deployment of an additional 220 BOHA! Terminal devices will occur over the next four months. The 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. TransAct believes the annual recurring average revenue per unit (“ARPU”) at these 220 locations will be approximately $1,500 per year. The Company also plans to work with the operator on the evaluation of additional BOHA! apps for potential deployment at a later time.
TransAct first provided its restaurant solutions offerings for this customer last year when the customer deployed TransAct’s prior-generation restaurant solution terminals and non-TransAct software at all of its locations. Following the introduction of the BOHA! ecosystem in March 2019, the customer transitioned its existing terminals at 450 stores to the new BOHA! Terminal alongside the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TEMS which led to recurring software revenues for TransAct. The additional deployments of BOHA! solutions will further grow the recurring revenue generated from this customer in addition to the benefit of the sale of 220 new BOHA! Terminal units.
Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “This expansion of our relationship with an existing BOHA! ecosystem customer is a testament to the measurable improvement our technology provides to foodservice operators. Having worked closely for several years to address this customer’s back-of-house needs, we have gained a tremendous level of insight as to how our newest solutions can help them manage their operations more efficiently and effectively and we have evolved our solution deployments at their locations to meet their changing requirements. We are pleased with the confidence this customer has in the BOHA! solution suite as they embark on an initiative to provide a new, unique food offering inside a large percentage of their stores. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with this customer as we continue to help them improve performance across their back-of-house operations.”
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.
