Embed Engages, Inspires and Empowers Through A Range of Initiatives

Singapore, 09 April 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 has launched a range of initiatives during this unprecedented climate, to weather this storm with our partners, customers and friends, helping them to settle into these unsettling times.

“Embed is a small business with offices all over the world and we are committed to working with our partners and customers, doing absolutely everything we can, within our means to support our industry’s recovery. The best way out of this is through planning ahead, anticipate what can be done and looking for innovative ways of doing things. We believe that even the smallest of initiatives has the potential to impact and transform a person's life.” said Renee Welsh, CEO, Embed.

 

Initiatives such as:

  1. Educational & Empowering Content:
    Written in-house by the team, Embed publishes educational and inspiring content three times a week to help customers get through the present (revenue generating ideas via social media) and be ready when business resumes. Topics include 15 Ideas to Engage Your Stay-Home Guests During the Lock-Down to Making Lemonade Out of Lemons and Be A Game Changer During the Covid-19 Crisis. For a list of blog topics, you can refer
  2. #EmbedLIVE
    To help the community navigate through the storm of change, while people work from home, Embed brings the global community together, with #EmbedLIVE - a series of video chats, that include segments with opinion leaders across our FEC and Attractions industry and a variety of industries. Embed's CMO, Sara Paz catches up with Embed’s CEO, Renee Welsh, to hear her thoughts and message to the industry. Get more exclusive conversations with the people who matter, when it matters here.
  3. Women@Embed Channel is Live
    Embed launched Women@Embed on Int’l Women’s Day, 2020 because Embed wanted to shine a light on the pioneering women in the FEC and Attractions industry. Embed has a Chief Executive team made up of 50% women, with Renee Welsh as the CEO (when only a mere 17% of fortune 500 companies have a female CEO). At Attractions Expo in New Orleans, the Embed team captured the stories of more pioneering women, like Vicki Peek, Director of Marketing, Tilt Studio, and long-time veteran of the FEC industry, starting her career at Nickels & Dimes as a part-time employee. And Alicia Lavay, Brand Director, Vending Times, also shared her journey in the industry. These video stories are published on the YouTube channel for Women@Embed and additional upcoming stories of unstoppable pioneers, like Christine Buhr, Founder, Owner & CEO of Shakers Fun Center, Canada, and many more will be published every week across Embed’s omni-marketing channels.
  4. Embed’s very own #clubquarantine Playlist
    Social distancing does not mean distant. Embed recognises that music creates a sense of belonging and participation, especially during these unsettling times, so it’s no surprise that Embed employees compiled a list of their favourite tracks to create Embed’s very own #clubquarantine.  Feel free to add the playlist to your Spotify and groove to the music.

This is far from business as usual, but Embed’s e-lights are on. We’re working hard to get through this, together. And together we will.

Embed Redefines Reliability & Bags Awards at Amusement Expo International 2024

DALLAS, TEXAS, Mar 22, 2024: Embed, the ultimate cloud-based, cashless solutions provider for the amusement, entertainment, and leisure industries showcased its Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions and other breakthrough innovations at the Amusement Expo International (AEI) from 20-21 March, emphasising on the importance of reliability when it comes to choosing a solutions provider to future-proof your business. Embed is known to partner with global tech giants, maximising their groundbreaking technology to adapt it for the family entertainment sector. The award-winning Mobile Wallet is still the only Apple and Google-certified FEC solution in the industry since its launch in 2019; the only non-banking, non-finance, non-healthcare solution approved to sit in a consumer’s mobile wallet (not a mobile app that requires a download and ongoing maintenance). And, STATS, the business intelligence dashboard jointly developed with Amazon Web Services. “Fresh from The DEAL Show in Dubai, AEI has been another amazing show and we’re privileged to keep our ear to the ground and stay close to our customers – the members of the Embed family – friends, and partners in the industry, especially at a time when system reliability is a hot topic in the industry,” shares Renee Welsh, CEO at Embed. “We are in a strategic position to respond to the industry’s need for reliable tech partners they can trust; we’re a solutions provider that partners with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for their data centres and tech development. Our confidence comes from knowing that we partner with the best. AWS tech is reliable enough for NASA, Formula 1, the US Defence, Netflix (with 260M subscribers), and Facebook (with 3B subscribers), then we can guarantee that the Embed family of FECs are in good hands!” Speaking further about their SaaS solutions, CTO Andy Welsh comments on how a system’s reliability is as crucial as the data centres and tech partners running it: “The Embed system architecture is built to work even during network outages. It’s time to make the switch and upgrade to the Embed system when your current system is letting you and your guests down.” “It’s at times like these, when other cashless players are plagued with data centre issues that result in mass outages amongst their FEC customers during busy weekend hours that Embed’s cutting-edge reliability is crystal clear!” adds Sara Paz, CMO and Embed Success Squad™ Transformation Guru. The Embed Success Squad™ was introduced at IAAPA Orlando 2023 as the company’s testament to customer-centricity and commitment to their customers’ business growth and success. The dedicated team of consultants, champions, and trainers – a mix of growth gurus, SaaS experts, and payment specialists help the Embed family experience the transformational growth SaaS solutions drive. “With 1-year FREE Mobile Wallet and 3-months FREE STATS subscriptions, complimentary payment gateway cost-saving analysis, free best practice training from the industry’s best FECs, free marketing kits and/or complimentary printed assets that cover the entire customer journey in an FEC, and the Embed GoTrain™ – all these are done to drive consumer uptake of Mobile Wallet,” adds Paz. Here are other highlights of the show: Major Awards Embed is this year’s AMOA Operator’s Choice Awards winner, recognising the company’s commitment to innovate new and exciting solutions FEC operators can trust and maximise to enable, empower, and ease their business of fun. “We are honoured to bag this amazing award and beyond grateful to our partners and members of the Embed family for making this possible!” says Renee Welsh. In addition to this major win, Embed also won the Best Booth Design for its new modular and sustainable build: “This is such a huge win for us! Since using this at IAAPA Orlando 2023, this booth is a testament to our efforts towards sustainability - from digital brochures and collaterals to minimise our carbon footprint and booth modular for the flexibility to switch booth size, scale, and designs without wasting resources,” says Kathleen Goy, Global Head of Events and Marketing Chief of Staff. Booth Action Along with its roster of integrated hardware and software solutions, Embed showcased its SaaS solutions Mobile Wallet and STATS - the real game-changers in terms of profitability, operational efficiency, lower costs, and superior guest experience.
