EQS-News: Vectron Systems AG / Key word(s): Alliance
Münster, 20 April 2023: The acardo group AG (acardo), a wholly owned subsidiary of Vectron Systems AG (Vectron), enables cinema operators to easily participate in the KulturPass. This is done by using acardo's existing connection to the cinemas' cash register systems.
In November last year, the federal government announced the nationwide KulturPass, which will give young people who turn 18 in 2023 a credit of €200 to use at local cultural events. In close exchange with the associations HDF KINO and AG Kino - Gilde, acardo has developed a solution that enables the KulturPass to be processed easily in almost all cinemas in Germany.
The KulturPass is scheduled to be launched in mid-June 2023. Until then, the technical and organisational hurdles must be overcome for the project, which will grant approximately 750,000 18-year-olds a credit of €200 for cultural purposes this year. In future, acardo will receive a transaction fee for every cinema ticket redeemed via the KulturPass.
"In France, a comparable cultural promotion was introduced last year. There, too, cinemas were among the funded cultural venues and were able to attract a large share of the funding volume. Since a similar development is expected in Germany, it is all the more important to automate the billing of cinema tickets with the KulturPass. Therefore, a far-reaching agreement has been made with acardo, whereby acardo will take over the technical processing. We are pleased to be able to provide our cinema partners with a way to process the KulturPass in good time," says Christoph Thye, CEO of acardo group AG.
