June 6, 2018
Company Successfully Executing Against Growing Market Opportunity for
Revolutionary Back-of-the-House Restaurant Management Solutions
Hamden, CT – June 6, 2018 – TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, announced today that it has secured new potential placements for its AccuDate™ restaurant solutions terminals at six major restaurant and foodservice operator customers through the first five months of 2018. These placements, the majority of which are for the AccuDate XL, could represent at least 7,000 terminals, demonstrating TransAct’s ongoing success with the rollout of its new-to-the-industry back-of-the-house software applications hub that helps operators manage their businesses more effectively and efficiently. The Company expects the roll-out and sales of the terminals to occur over the next several years and all AccuDate XL placements will include significant recurring revenue opportunities for TransAct in the form of the Company’s AccuDate-branded label offerings as well as software and maintenance support contracts.
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. So far this year, we have secured important new wins for our AccuDate solutions with six well-known national customers encompassing more than 7,000 potential terminals. While these wins build on prior sales success with other national restaurant and foodservice customers and validate our ongoing commitment to innovation and the operational savings made possible by our terminals, we believe they represent early stepping stones to what we expect will become a significant and transformational business for TransAct. We are excited to work with these six new customers as we assist them in rolling out our AccuDate terminals and in making these terminals critical components of their day-to-day operations. Our sales team also looks forward to working with interested operators to help them better understand the benefits of our solutions as they evolve their processes for the future. Ultimately, we believe the future is bright for the AccuDate family of solutions and we are diligently executing on this opportunity each and every day.
“We are very encouraged by the tangible industry enthusiasm at the recent 2018 National Restaurant Association Show for products that help manage back-of-the-house operations such as our AccuDate solutions. Our extensive dialog with current and potential customers at the show reinforced our view that the pursuit of increased efficiency and improved cost controls are top of mind for restaurant and foodservice operators of all sizes. In today’s environment where labor costs and commodity costs continue to rise thereby squeezing profits, restaurant and foodservice operators are looking for technology solutions that will allow their kitchens to operate more efficiently. TransAct has positioned its AccuDate solutions lineup to fill this role, including our new AccuDate XL2e which we expect will become a central connected hub that talks to a wide variety of current and future technology solutions such a temperature monitoring probes thereby creating the kitchen of the future. Our AccuDate solutions are ideally suited to become critical components of kitchen workflows and will bring together advanced technologies into a single, easy to use and easy to maintain device.”
