A Message From Embed's CEO: How We're Dealing With COVID-19

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) makes its way across the globe, it’s affecting our communities and industry in different ways. We are committed to take care of our partners, employees, and customers. This lifelong value informs and guides us as we face the difficult challenge of responding to COVID-19, which the World Health Organization has declared a pandemic. Rest-assured that we proactively implemented measures across our offices as early as January.

We are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies across the world for the latest developments related to COVID-19 and following the guidance of government and public health officials. We are following these agencies' recommendations on the appropriate health and safety measures across our portfolio of companies.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people, our partners and their businesses, affected by this pandemic. Please know we are actively monitoring the situation and have precautions in place to ensure the health of our employees, partners and customers across the globe. 

Below is an update on the actions we are taking to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. Thank you for understanding as we work to avoid any unnecessary risk to our employees, partners, and customers.


Our Support Services:

Our global response team is simply a phone call away. Our Customer Care agents are here to support you through this and will continue doing everything we can to maintain our current operation’s exceptional service levels.


Our e-Lights Are On. We're Connected. It’s Business as Usual.

While Embed’s offices are operating with a skeleton crew (for the foreseeable future) and most of our teams are working remotely. We have suspended all domestic and international business travel. Any and all sales-related matters will be managed via telephone, teleconference and video-conference.

We recognize these are unsettling times, and want you to know that your safety and well-being is our first priority.

Know this, Embed is waiting and ready to serve you. We will get through this together.

Thriving During A Pandemic: Embed Supports Ticket Time In Opening A New Business & New Pop-Up Arcade

Singapore 1 October 2020: Transforming the business of fun since 2001, Embed, the worldwide leader of the cashless business management systems and solutions for the amusement, entertainment, and leisure industries, is proud to partner with Ticket Time, located in Queensland, Australia, to open their new business and pop-up arcade by providing their integrated cashless business solution. Opening up a brand new arcade amid a global pandemic would have many raising their eyebrows, but not Luke Phillips, Owner of Ticket Time. Ticket Time opened in June 2020, just in time for the school holidays in Australia, and immediately encountered the business challenge of Australian inter-state travel restrictions (and border closures), severely impacting tourism revenue. With limited staff, plus the challenge of implementing extensive COVID government-mandated regulations for operation, like capacity management, guest arrival check-in for tracking and tracing purposes, social distancing requirements, etc., Luke Phillips knew he needed to implement a system that can act as a “staff member” without compromising the customer experience.
