Today, I am delighted and proud to announce that we are joining forces with SpotOn—one of the fastest growing software and payments companies—to provide end-to-end cloud solutions for small, mid-size and enterprise businesses across retail, restaurants, sports and entertainment, and hospitality.
We’ve been on an incredible journey since Kevin, Jason and I founded Appetize almost 10 years ago. Absolutely none of this would have been possible without our amazing, passionate team and our inspiring customers.
We started with the idea that mobile and cloud technology could change the way we experience life’s most memorable moments, while making businesses more efficient and productive. To make this a reality, we built first-of-its-kind solutions with all the benefits and flexibility of the cloud—including easy deployment, scale-up, reconfiguration, and upgrade capabilities—with our enterprise management capabilities, such as centralized dashboards and real-time analytics.
With this merger we are now a larger team with more diverse expertise, dedicated to serving the needs of growth-oriented businesses. Together, we are now 1,600 employees, with 500+ focused on product and technology, creating one of the strongest teams in the combined POS software and payments industry.
We’ll be joining the SpotOn family as “SpotOn Enterprise” and will continue to be laser-focused on serving and growing our enterprise client base which includes iconic brands like Dodger Stadium, Yankee Stadium, MetLife Stadium, the San Diego Zoo, Live Nation, PGA Tour, and many more.
Appetize’s enterprise expertise and SpotOn’s restaurant and small business solutions will enable us to service every type and size of venue, restaurant and retailer – from food trucks and franchisees, to theme parks and stadiums.
For both companies, our focus has always been our customers’ success, and we’ll continue to prioritize this by incorporating the best technology, innovation and combined experience into all our offerings.
While we have become the market leader in modern POS solutions for enterprise businesses, we have long admired SpotOn’s innovative, end-to-end solutions and tremendous growth. The companies’ complementary technologies will strengthen our portfolio of robust, intuitive technology that’s built for seamless guest experiences.
Our mission remains unchanged, and we now have more resources to continue building products that delight our customers. We are just getting started and we’ll share more in the coming months.
