CEC Entertainment and Semnox announce five year partnership
Family dining and entertainment leader CEC Entertainment, Inc., the creator of Chuck E. Cheese restaurants and kids activities, will partner Semnox, a provider of RFID based venue management solutions, for a further five years.
According to both parties, an RFID based debit card system has yielded mutually beneficial and successful outcomes for both organisations. Chuck E Cheese has successfully implemented Play Pass, the technology solution that upgraded the token based game room to a RFID enabled entertainment destination, at more than 500 US corporate locations. The company is now in the process of rolling out the solution to its domestic and international franchises.
“Partnering with Semnox to roll out our RFID technology upgrade for our concept was one of the best decisions we have made at CEC in the last five years. We were concerned initially because Semnox was a smaller organization, but they exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Our operations team views Semnox as part of our organization, that is the best endorsement any vendor could hope for,” said Roger Cardinale, president of CEC Entertainment.
“It is a proud moment for the company to have not only won the business of CEC but having retained them as a very highly referenceable client. I believe the relationship has been mutually rewarding with continuous innovation driven by both companies. We are thankful to the CEC team for having placed faith in us. We look forward to many more years of continued association,” added Kiran Karanki, CEO of Semnox.
