Piscataway, NJ (PRWEB) April 19, 2006
Cinebank, based in San Jose, Puerto Rico (http://www.cinebank.pr), has installed 4 machines on the island with the idea to spread quickly and capture a large and loyal customer base. Pedro Cid, CEO of the company has expressed great content with the machines and is overwhelmed with the preliminary results. “We are very excited to be the first company to do this in Puerto Rico, and we are pleased to see that this new technology is being embraced by local users utilizing the Spanish/English interface” Pedro says.
The Movie Case, based in Herndon Virginia, has begun placing machine in local grocery stores, convenience stores and cafes that experience high foot traffic. Mark Doyle, president of The Movie Case comments “We are testing several different types of locations as an initial stage of the business and will proceed to grow as we analyze the data in the next few months”. The Movie Case machines also offer online reservation capabilities and charge $1.99 per day for rentals.
The machines offer subscriptions and promotions allowing customers to either rent single titles or join as members for additional benefits and discounts. Everything is done at the machine level on the customer’s credit or debit card which eliminates the need to fill out lengthy forms or carry another membership card.
ELO Media’s network and machines allows both Cinebank and The Movie Case to operate individually of each other and each monitor their machines remotely in order to essentially eliminate almost all labor costs associated with running video stores. “It’s a no brainer” Pedro says. “We contemplated opening up a video store chain in Puerto Rico, but once we became aware of the automated kiosk, it was obvious that this was the route to take. When asked why he decided to work with ELO Media as opposed to other automated DVD kiosk providers Pedro said “That choice was very easy. I met with Moviebank USA, Vendvision, ELO Media and the rest of the manufacturers, but it was clear that ELO Media’s DVmatic were the best machines, provided the superior network and excellent service. We are happy with our decision and glad to have ELO Media as our formidable partner.”
ELO Media, founded in 2003, is one of the leaders in the Automated DVD Vending Machines industry. In addition to owning and operating these machines, ELO media offers both individuals and retail business the opportunity to purchase and operate these machines at their locations in order to increase income and add value to their business. ELO Media's goal is to provide movie lovers with the ease and comfort of renting movies 24-hours per day, 7 days per week at DVmatic locations.
