MINNEAPOLIS, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Express Image Digital and PLAZA Holding's Inc., for Plaza Las Américas(PLA) and Plaza Del Caribe (PDC) announce today a ground-breaking new mobile app feature to manage mall occupancy in the post pandemic environment. PLA is the largest mall in the Caribbean and is a celebrated San Juan shopping, dining and entertainment destination. PDC is the equivalent in the Southwestern area of the Island, with the largest selection of stores in the region and offering a warm and secure family environment.
Parent company Plaza Holding's Inc. is committed to providing a safe and comfortable shopping experience while setting Mall maximum occupancy limits. Guests can reserve their shopping times through each mall's Mobile App allowing the mall's administration to manage the number of visitors to the mall. Guests receive an electronic ticket in the mobile app which will be scanned at the mall entrance. Starting today Mall Entry Reservation feature is active allowing mall guests to reserve a time slot for visiting PLA or PDC reopening on June 8th.
Express Image Digital had previously been selected by PLAZA Holding's Inc. to provide a Mobile App for both malls following an extensive venting process. The Mobile App was "soft released" just prior to the pandemic situation and the malls' closing on March 15th, 2020. In addition to EID's best in class guest wayfinding feature, the mobile App is a guest communication platform that includes marketing offers, key information, and event promotion features. The reservation feature will have the added benefit of stimulating App downloads for all guests seeking to visit either mall.
Scott Morrow, Express Image Digital CEO shared, "We are thrilled to work with Plaza Holding's Inc., to develop solutions that meet the needs of today's technical and social environment. To their credit, they approached us with the concept, and both teams have worked relentlessly in a short time period to deliver the feature to coincide with the future opening of the malls."

Executive Vice President said, "We are committed to ensure a safe, comfortable environment for our shoppers and employees while adhering to CDC's social distancing in the post-pandemic world.
