Marimba is at Point-Of-Sale with InfoGenesis Hospitality Solutions

9/10/2003 - Marimba, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRBA), the Software Change Management Company, and InfoGenesis, a leading provider of hospitality information technology, announced that the two companies are teaming to provide seamless technology updates to InfoGenesis customers in the hospitality and foodservice industries.

InfoGenesis develops and supports point-of-sale (POS) solutions for hotels, restaurants, resorts, sports arenas, casinos, and other entertainment attractions. The company's integrated POS solutions allow InfoGenesis customers to sell food and retail items anywhere in their facilities. The InfoGenesis technology manages transactions from the point of sale - back to a centrally located data center - while providing the reporting capabilities needed to help customers run their retail operations.

InfoGenesis keeps customers satisfied and competitive by using Marimba® technology to update software and content on a continuous basis. Utilizing Marimba's leading Desktop/Mobile Management products, InfoGenesis can plan, manage, and distribute automated software updates to a customer's heterogeneous computer systems - each with unique needs. Marimba's automated software management solutions help InfoGenesis eliminate human errors and reduce the time, cost and effort required to distribute software updates, resulting in a higher level of service to customers.

"We use the InfoGenesis technology at the American Airlines Center to facilitate ordering our in-seat food service, luxury suite requests, concessions and retail operations," said Martin Woodall, owner representative for the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center. "InfoGenesis manages and maintains our POS solution in a seamless fashion, ensuring that our customers can order what they want, where they want it."

"Our customers include large stadiums, such as American Airlines Center, as well as boutique resorts and chain restaurants; so finding a software change management solution to optimize a variety of high and low bandwidth connections was critical to our update process," said Peter Glynn, vice president of development for InfoGenesis. "After evaluating a number of different software change management products, we chose Marimba because it provided the feature set we required, and was significantly faster and more robust than any of the other solutions we evaluated."

"InfoGenesis works with some of the most interesting and highly visible entertainment venues in the country, and their offerings need to schedule and deploy software updates across a variety of unique IT environments," said Kia Behnia, Marimba's chief technology officer. "We're excited to work with InfoGenesis to help them manage and maintain their state-of-the-art solutions in the hospitality industry."
