SAP App Center Now Featuring the Savantis ‘Intelligent Entertainment Suite’

By integrating with SAP Commerce and SAP Cloud Platform, the application helps entertainment businesses attract new customers and keep loyal guests coming back.

The omni-channel application from Savantis allows companies in the cinema, sports and entertainment, retail, and restaurant and hospitality sectors to digitally transform their business with more than 25 embedded consumer-facing and back-office accelerators.

“We are excited to unveil IES, an application specifically developed for the entertainment industry, as a flexible and scalable alternative to Vista and other cinema management software,” said Keith Hontz, CEO and president, Savantis. “Uniquely relevant in today’s digital economy, IES is natively integrated with SAP Commerce, which delivers an unparalleled digital experience for end consumers of B2C enterprises. Our most recent innovations include contactless online ticketing, socially distanced seating reservations, and self-service kiosk ordering. These all work to attract customers and keep loyal guests coming back.”


IES delivers a broad range of benefits including scalability, ease of integration with existing solutions, personalized capabilities, real-time business intelligence metrics, and rapid implementation. Easily integrated with existing systems through middleware layer, Savantis can work with third-party solutions while implementing or to compliment IES.

Enterprises gain real-time visibility of business including sales, cash, venue occupancy, operations, and more through the cash office module. IES delivers insights using customers’ historical data and helps deliver personalized offers and marketing, helping drive sales.
