zoOceanarium Group and Lodging Hospitality Management to utilise accesso Siriusware solution
Solution to be implemented in St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station, St Louis, Missouri
accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the premier technology solutions provider to leisure, entertainment and cultural markets, is partnering with zoOceanarium Group, a recognised international zoo and aquarium developer and operator, and Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM), a proven leader in the hospitality industry, to implement accesso Siriusware at its St. Louis Aquarium and entertainment complex at Union Station in St Louis, Missouri opening later this year.
The accesso Siriusware solution will be used to power the destination's behind-the-scenes tours and animal encounters, in addition to general admission at the two-story, 120,000-square-foot aquarium opening in winter 2019. The aquarium will be a central element of LHM's new entertainment complex at the station, which will also include a 200-foot observation wheel, a ropes course, an 18-hole mini golf course and more.
This new partnership reflects the ongoing momentum within accesso Siriusware which continues to prove its worth in a range of adjacent markets. Our customers continue to seek streamlined and customizable solutions that bring together front-gate, point-of-sale, membership passes, access control and eCommerce capability to bring the digital guest journey to life. This enables them to dramatically improve the experience they can offer during visits to their attractions, and drive revenue from higher-quality and more personalised interactions with their customers.
Paul Noland, CEO of accesso, commented:
"Union Station was once one of the busiest rail terminals in the world. Today, it's a living piece of St. Louis history. Through this agreement, our partners at zoOceanarium Group and Lodging Hospitality Management have allowed us to help usher the station into the future, with our streamlined feature-rich solutions. We are honored to be partnering with these organisations at the ground floor and can't wait to watch history in the making as we begin writing the next chapters of Union Station's story together."
Steve O'Loughlin, President and Chief Operating Officer of Lodging Hospitality Management, commented:
"As we considered potential ticketing partners, we've been impressed by Accesso's continued growth and innovation. It is exciting to align ourselves with a provider who will be a true partner, dedicated to our team and success.
From developing software that incorporates robust reporting, to providing a strong support network and customer service team, Accesso has gone above and beyond our expectations."

Many of our team members come from backgrounds working within the attractions and cultural industry.
