Veezi is engineered by Vista, the number one cinema software company in the world. As a bunch of movie zealots working across 60+ countries (and counting), they understand the movie  experience and constantly strive to enhance it for all. Over the years, Vista has had a lot of enquiries from independents about a cinema management solution tailored especially to meet independents’ needs. Veezi offers the same Vista technology needed to meet moviegoer demands but tailored to the independent cinema community. The product simplifies cinema operations via its integration capability and automated reporting functions. Cinema information is at your finger-tips all via the cloud, meaning you can run your business from anywhere. Internet ticketing, film programming, a full featured POS, cinema management dashboard and reporting, UsherPoint and Loyalty: this functionality is only the beginning for the Veezi system. The product is subscription-based: pricing is based on admits per month, you pay with your credit card and you can cancel the service at any time. The pièce de résistance is the ease with which you can set up and use Veezi; you can have it running within an hour, with the Veezi team as a 24/7 support partner if help is needed. www.veezi.com    @VeeziByVista
