  • Leaders in Leisure and Entertainment Join Forces to Deliver Dynamic Virtual Queuing Technology to Japanese Market


accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the premier technology solutions provider for attractions and venues worldwide, has signed a three-year strategic agreement with Sansei Technologies, Inc., through which Sansei Technologies will serve as the exclusive reseller of accesso virtual queuing products in the Japanese market.

Since its founding in 1951, Japan-based Sansei Technologies has specialized in end-to-end development of cutting-edge rides and attractions, theater design, elevators and other specialized equipment for operators in the leisure and entertainment industry. The company's decades of industry experience, regional connectivity and deep understanding of market needs position Sansei Technologies as the ideal partner for accesso as the solution provider seeks to further expand the footprint of its award-winning virtual queuing technology in Japan.

"Accesso is the industry leader when it comes to virtual queuing, and the potential their technology holds for operators – especially when it comes to boosting operational revenue – is undeniable," said Yasuharu Nishiyama, Managing Executive Officer / Division GM, Amusement Ride Division, at Sansei Technologies. "We are excited to partner with Accesso and are eager to introduce the power of their virtual queuing solutions to operators here in Japan."

Since 2001, accesso's patented accesso LoQueue® suite of virtual queuing solutions has helped millions of guests to wait less, do more and enjoy a better on-site experience. With multiple technology platforms designed for all types of attractions, the accesso LoQueue solution generates additional revenue for operators while improving their guests' experiences.

"For years, we've seen our virtual queuing technology redefine operations for theme parks and attractions around the world," said Andrew Jacobs, accesso Chief Commercial Officer. "Through this partnership, we look forward to delivering that same level of success to operators in Japan, and we're grateful to do so with Sansei Technologies, an incredibly like-minded and well-connected partner."

Under this three-year agreement, Sansei Technologies will lead regional efforts for target identification, while contributing to other areas of the sales process, including basic, local customer support. accesso will maintain control over the full solution design and system maintenance, while managing higher-level customer care.

Many of our team members come from backgrounds working within the attractions and cultural industry. In this way, we are experienced operators who run a technology company serving attractions operators, versus a technology company that happens to serve the market.

From our agile development team to our dedicated client service specialists, every team member knows that their passion, integrity, commitment, teamwork and innovation are what drive our success.
