Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in digital cinema, today announced that Neighborhood Cinema Group has selected Cinedigm Enterprise Web to manage their theatres.
Enterprise Web is Cinedigm’s newest Web-based circuit wide operational and oversight software and Neighborhood Cinema Group is the first client to sign on for this upgraded offering. Enterprise Web attaches to Cinedigm’s theatre management system (TCC3) for operational insight to every theatre in the circuit.
Neighborhood Cinema Group, branded as NCG Cinemas, is a chain of movie theatres headquartered in Owosso, Michigan. The chain consists at present of 14 theatres with 137 screens. Most of the theatres are located in Michigan, especially in the Flint and Great Lakes Bay region and the Greater Lansing area. In recent years the chain has expanded to include theatres in the Nashville, Tennessee and Metro Atlanta areas and to Indiana.
As part of this installation, Neighborhood Cinema Group is replacing the software in two theatres and upgrading them to Cinedigm’s TCC3 so all screens and theatres will be included in the circuit-wide management.
“Given our small staff, efficiency is not only desired -- but mandated. Enterprise web eliminates redundant efforts circuit-wide with its ability to save missed and late shows so we can provide the customer the best possible experience available,” said Mark Henning, NCG’s Chief Operating Officer.
“With Enterprise Web, we are delivering the ability for an exhibitor to fully realize the operational efficiencies that the digital revolution offers,” said Dan Sherlock, President of Cinedigm Software. “Given their history of innovation, we aren’t surprised that Mark Henning and his team are the first customers to sign up for this new program.”
