Swedish Qmatic and METO partner up for mass market entry in Europe, Australia and Canada

Mölndal, Sweden and Stuttgart, Germany, 12 MAY 2014.

Today the two leading companies within queue management solutions Qmatic and METO are entering a partnership. Qmatic, a Swedish software and hardware company, enhances customer experiences in physical environments via customer touch-point opportunities. METO, a worldwide operating supplier based in Germany, delivers price marking, sales promotion and merchandise labeling solutions to retailers, industry and service providers.

METO will market and sell Turn-O-Matic Touch, a branded Qmatic product for individual stores and operations that efficiently need to organise customer flows.

“We see a big potential in the co-operation with METO” says Michael Hallén, CEO of the Qmatic Group. “The company has a large customer base within retail and a history of selling take-a-number systems. Consequently, its sales organisation is accustomed to encounter these buyer profiles, and its sales people understand their clients’ problems and requirements.”

At first, the partnership will cover Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, and Sweden. METO operates in many more European countries, and since 1999, it’s been a division of Checkpoint Systems, a US enterprise.

“Our staff is looking forward to working with Qmatic and marketing Turn-O-Matic Touch,” says Erik Cardinaal, Vice President and General Manager METO,

“METO wants to expand within queue management and customer-flow management,” says Cardinaal, “and Turn-O-Matic Touch is a perfect solution for individual retailers who need to better manage the customer flow in their stores - without excessive costs or time-consuming installation and training. We believe that Turn-O-Matic Touch has great potential in various market segments: ranging from fish shops to car dealers, from butchers to the local pharmacies, from museums to clothing stores, and from hairdressers to game stores - to name a few.”
