100 Movie Theatres, 80000 Seats, One bttn


Finnkino, the largest movie theatre chain in Finland successfully deploys the bttn

Helsinki – May 27, 2014 – The Button Corporation is providing Finnkino movie theatres in-theatre call buttons for audience for improved customer service.

With thousands of people in the multiplexed and fully automated modern movie theatres, it is increasingly important that the patrons have a fast and simple way of alerting theatre staff and receiving assistance, in cases of theatre or audience related exceptions during the shows.

“With its low cost service-based approach, the bttn is an ideal solution for our theatres”, says Finnkino’s Theatre Manager Markku Riekkinen. “Placing bttns in the auditoriums allows us to offer better customer service during the movie presentations. If a need arises, the audience now has a simple method of signaling our staff by pushing a lighted bttn on the wall. The versatility of the bttn concept allows us to implement many more customer service ideas. And should our own messaging infrastructure change, we’ll simply change the messaging options in the cloud service. ”

Juuso Pesola, CTO of The Button Corporation, says: “We are delighted to work with the most advanced movie theatre chain in the Nordic area. Finnkino’s service orientedness and strive for customer’s total experience has blown us away, and we’re proud to be one of the technical partners of Finnkino.”
