Gateway Ticketing Systems, the world leader in admission control and ticketing software for the attraction, amusement, and transportation industries, is pleased to to announce its latest innovation in ticketing and validation: Galaxy® Roam?.
Galaxy Roam is Gateway’s new system for mobile sales and validation that combines commercial-grade, purpose-built hardware and software in one system.
Partnering with Quipos Solutions, providers of handheld devices that integrate cashless payment, Gateway have created a lightweight, ergonomically designed handset that is completely integrated with Gateway’s flagship product, Galaxy. Galaxy Roam is a complete mobile POS and validation solution that delivers a real impact on service standards, cost-reduction, revenue and profitability.
Key features of Galaxy Roam include:
- Using a stylus or fingertip, you can select general admission, timed-event and general-event tickets.
- Swipe a credit card along the side and payments are processed.
- Tickets and receipts print from a Bluetooth printer that fits in the palm of your hand.
- Need to change from sales to validation? No problem. A few finger taps and the device easily switches to validation mode for access control with state-of-the-art 1D and 2D scanning.
Product Solutions Manager Marcus Lopez is excited about Roam’s potential, “Galaxy Roam provides our customers with a new sales mechanism that is fast, robust, easy, and flexible. Interfacing with Gateway’s existing eGalaxy Server, Galaxy Roam is easily integrated into a customer’s infrastructure. The option to sell and scan tickets over Wi-Fi or a 3G data connection offers maximum flexibility and reliability.”
Michael Furman, Director of Sales at Gateway Ticketing Systems, is also thrilled with the new offering: “Galaxy Roam is designed to provide our customers greater flexibility with a commercial-grade mobile POS. This solution provides a rapid ROI that is easy to measure in terms of increased sales to guests and increased efficiency in venue operations.“
