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 that it has secured a new agreement with a regional foodservice operator to deploy the BOHA! Terminal and one of the BOHA! SaaS-based apps.
TransAct expects the customer’s locations will go live with a total 128 BOHA! Terminals, the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (TEMS) by the end of 2019. The foodservice operator will also purchase TransAct Labels which are specifically designed to work with the thermal printers featured in the BOHA! Terminal and the Company’s BOHA! Premier Express service offering. TransAct believes the annual recurring average revenue per unit (“ARPU”) for this agreement will be more than $1,100 a year. In addition, the foodservice operator is beginning an evaluation of three additional BOHA! SaaS-based apps for potential future deployments.
Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “Since the official launch of our revolutionary BOHA! SaaS-based software and hardware ecosystem earlier this year, we have announced a variety of orders with customers of different sizes across the broad spectrum of restaurant and foodservice operations. This agreement to deploy the BOHA! Terminal and our SaaS-based software with a regional foodservice operator is another indication that our unique offering can bring quantifiable economic and efficiency advantages to virtually any operator preparing food for sale in take-out and dine-in settings.
“As our success with BOHA! grows, restaurant and foodservice operators are clearly embracing the ability of our solution to provide a wide variety of software-driven back-of-house functions all from one vendor and from a single hardware platform. Additionally, TransAct’s commitment to addressing each of our customers’ distinct operational needs based on their menu requirements and operational workflows is a distinguishing factor that we believe establishes a foundation for near- and long-term BOHA! growth. Our ecosystem of hardware solutions, cloud-based SaaS apps and proprietary labels makes it easy for customers to deploy back-of-house technology that addresses their need to operate more effectively and efficiently. In addition, while directly serving the needs of our customers, the economic model behind BOHA! provides TransAct with up-front hardware sales revenue and attractive recurring annual ARPU related to our apps and labels.”
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. Each BOHA! solution combines cloud-based SaaS applications with hardware and accessories to deliver superior results for critical back-of-house operations. BOHA! offers a one-stop solution for restaurants and food service companies to address their current back-of-house operating requirements while providing a future-ready platform capable of addressing back-of-house operations as they continue to evolve. BOHA! Terminal includes TEMS (TransAct Enterprise Management System) to ensure only approved apps and functions are available on the device.
