Unique X adds COVID19 social distancing support to RosettaPOS

London, May 8th 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the cinema industry very hard, with operations limited and new rules and regulations which must be observed. With plans underway for the re-opening are of cinemas in multiple territories it is important that we find ways to give our customers the confidence to fulfil social distancing measures on their return to the big screen. Therefore we have introduced new functionality to our RosettaPOS software that will allow our cinema customers to confirm with any social distancing rules, and to be transparent about how this software upgrade can be used to protect cinema customers.

In the past, when required to limit the number of customers in a screening, either seats had to be marked as broken, or shows changed to non-allocated seating and limiting the percentage of seats which could be sold. Both of these options have limitations where the screen either appears to be overly full, or there is no visibility for the customer on how many people have purchased seats. To overcome these limitations, we introduced the concept of “temporarily unavailable” seats, which gives the cinema the ability to mark seats so the customer can see which seats will be occupied and which seats would remain unoccupied. As an additional feature RosettaPOS also allows these seats to be automatically reverted to their original seat type at a specified time on a specified date, or manually reverted with a single button click.

In the screenshot, you can see how the screen looks when social distancing has been applied in RosettaPOS using temporarily available seating.

Another option for cinemas to encourage their customers to return is to make use of the Holiday Calendar. by making make it work in reverse. In RosettaPOS we use the holiday calendar to apply weekday pricing on the weekends as a way to incentivise customers coming back to the cinema by offering reduced pricing. This is an offer that can run for a limited period before reverting back to standard pricing.

We would be interested to understand free to share your own ideas for managing your own cinema reopening and encourage you to share your thoughts and experiences with us via our Contact Us page.
