ROLLER backs UK as key growth hub for amusement and leisure

ROLLER backs UK as key growth hub for amusement and leisure
August 3, 2017

After a hugely successful year and a swell of new international business, Melbourne-based software company ROLLER is investing further in expanding its current offering throughout the United Kingdom.

The expansion has seen ROLLER founder and Chief Executive Luke Finn relocate to London to spearhead the growth plans in both the UK and across Europe.

With consistent growth in UK leisure sectors over the past decade, ROLLER is well placed to continue its expansion. Total visits to the UK’s amusement and theme parks have grown by 7% over the last few years as the nation’s leisure industry has expanded to be worth €117 billion (US$138 billion/A$174 billion), driven by record high employment levels and low-inflation.

ROLLER have already carved significant slice of the UK leisure market thanks to their innovative cloud based POS and ticketing software solutions, designed to save leisure and attraction companies time and money while ensuring a positive customer experience.

Steve Murphy, Group Operations Manager at UK-based Jump Arena Trampoline Parks, explains “we switched to ROLLER in September 2016 (and) I can say without any doubt that the platform is by far the most user-friendly, reliable, relevant and fully editable operating system I have used.

“We have this system now in all of our trampoline parks (and) it's very easy to use, easy to train new staff and transferring over from our previous system was simple, quick and without any problems.

“I would highly recommend this system and the team of support staff are fantastic.”

As a result of this success, ROLLER has recently become the largest vendor to the UK trampoline park market, while also supplying their cloud-based online booking platform to some of the world's most iconic amusement and leisure venues.

Another satisfied customer, Steve Jeffery, General Manager of Energi trampoline arenas in Preston and Carlisle, adds "ROLLER has significantly improved our customer's experience in navigating through the booking process, allowing us improve the overall marketability of new or existing products.

“From an operating viewpoint, ROLLER’s systems are extremely simple, yet allows great depth in customisation which is key to developing a business in such a fast paced, constantly changing industry.”
