Step 1: Constantly gathering information

applications and data services programmed from the ground up to tackle the requirements
of a modern cinema.

How do we gather the data we need?
Kinesis staff regularly gather media resources from local and international film
distributors and continually update our movie library with the latest movie information,
including posters, photos and trailers. This movie information, in conjunction with
your session time and other information, is used to intelligently
present the most relevant information to your customers at all times.
KICS connects into your cinema point of sale system to gather session time data.
In most cases, this process is automatic (it depends on your point of sale software).
Our software integrates with Venue Master,
Showcase and others.
The KICS Content Management Systems (CMS) makes it easy for you to enter

Step 2: Share, Share, Share!
After storing all of your information in our database, we process and share this
information in many ways:
Your KICS web site contains all of the information of your cinema in a beautiful
and modern design. Using all the information above your web site automatically
sorts movies into Now Showing or Coming Soon lists, presents special events and
updates your session time listings.
This same information is used to populate the touch-friendly and quick loading
mobile site for anyone using any brand of smartphone.
KICS also shares this information with Facebook and Twitter. Your weekly session
times are posted automatically to your Facebook Page each week, with regular
posts sent out throughout the week. Don't worry - these posts are under your
control at all times.
Android apps provided by Kinesis use this information to
present a smooth and information-rich user experience on modern phones.
Regular email newsletters are constructed and sent automatically with all the
latest session times and movie information. All you need to do is write a
subject and introduction and you're done!
Third parties can also access your session time information directly from our
XML webservices. Current users include HWW
(Australia's leading syndicator of movie session times) and
