Commenting on this, Vticket Chief Executive Derek Stoneman stated “we are thrilled to be working with Rottnest Island Authority on their implementation of new Point of Sale, Web Store and Kiosk systems. VTicket and Galaxy were selected as the best solution to meet all the resort’s requirements and to provide professional implementation and support services.

“It is wonderful for us to be associated with such a well-known, iconic Australian resort.”

Tannous added “we are honoured to welcome Rottnest Island to the Gateway family of customers and excited to see the growth taking place in the Australian market through our value-added reseller, Vticket.

“I am certain that with Vticket and Gateway by their side, the Rottnest Island Authority will not only maintain, but surpass the level of service and hospitality they currently provide to their customers.
