Vista Entertainment Solutions has signed a new agreement with Ymagis Group/dcinex for the sale and distribution of VES cinema management software in Russia and CIS. The new partnership benefits both companies: Ymagis Group/dcinex expands the range of products and services offered by the company’s Moscow team; and for VES, this distribution agreement enables new and extended opportunities to secure cinema exhibition customers in Russia.

“The business partner model that VES deploys worldwide is a tried-and-true business acquisition solution for VES,” said Mischa Kay, managing director EMEA (London) for VES. “In-market knowledge and support has proven a recipe for success to assist and grow our business over its lifetime, and we’re delighted to welcome Ymagis Group/dcinex to the Vista family. Their local knowledge, presence, expertise and support that we have already experienced from them at this early stage is fantastic. We couldn’t be more excited about working with them and about adding the value of VES cinema management software to more theatres in Russia.”

“VES is the leading cinema management software system and a natural choice for us,” said Kirill Kuzmenko, general manager of Ymagis Group/dcinex in Russia. “Most importantly, the interconnected and total enterprise solution that is the VES software portfolio is a new and exciting opportunity for cinema exhibitors in Russia and CIS. We look forward to showing exhibitors the added value VES will bring to their operations, as has been consistently proven worldwide.” 

The deal is a key outcome of the Kino Expo trade exhibition held recently in Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation, that saw a large and very busy side-by-side exhibitor effort on the part of each of the two companies and extensive discussions with prospective customers. The agreement takes immediate effect.
