LONDON, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the premier technology solutions provider to leisure, entertainment and cultural markets, has signed a 5-year contract extension with Dreamworld, one of Australia's premier theme parks, to continue providing accesso LoQueue virtual queuing solutions.
Dreamworld will utilize both the smartphone-powered QsmartSM and the patented QbotSM virtual queuing device to provide flexible options for guests using the service. Known as "Q4U" at Dreamworld, accesso's award-winning solutions allow users to wait for their ride without having to stand in line. Instead, they reserve their place in a queue electronically and are notified when it's their turn to ride.
"Accesso's technology is wildly popular with our Dreamworld guests and has helped improve our guest service scores, as well as drive significant incremental revenue for us," said Craig Davidson, Dreamworld CEO.
Used by more than 11 million guests since 2001, accesso LoQueue virtual queuing solutions are delivered via the smartphone-based Qsmart; the waterproof RFID wristband QbandSM ; or the original handheld device - Qbot.
"Dreamworld was the first theme park in Australia to embrace Accesso LoQueue technology and this contract extension is another important vote of confidence in the value and capability of our technology," said Tom Burnet, accesso CEO.
