Stacey’s Old Faithful Bar and Steakhouse Re-Opens Today

GALLATIN GATEWAY, Mont. -- The legendary Stacey's Old Faithful Bar & Steakhouse in Gallatin Gateway is reopening, following a change in ownership and making updates. Stacey's is an authentic western bar and steakhouse serving up a stiff drink, a hearty meal, and live music for over 60 years- and they plan on keeping it that way.

After purchasing the bar this year, owner Brett Evje saw the need for a few updates, like expanding the kitchen- which will now be serving breakfast Friday - Monday in addition to serving lunch and dinner seven days a week. Other updates include an indoor stage for live music, a new dance floor, beer on tap, a turn-of-the-century back bar, an expanded gaming machine area, and new restrooms. An outdoor bar and patio space will be added in Spring 2021.

Seeing himself as the caretaker of this landmark saloon, Evje says, "Toni and her family created a place where everyone feels welcomed. I see these updates as setting it up for the next 60 years and beyond. We are dedicated to keeping the West and the western spirit alive and unchanged."

This is the second update of the historic property. The first took place in 2005 when Toni Crosby acquired the bar from her father, Stacey, and added the steakhouse.

Established in 1937, Stacey's Old Faithful Bar & Steakhouse is a casual western saloon and eatery that strives to maintain an authentic Montana experience and the traditions that make this state great. At Stacey's, you can be sure to find a stiff drink, a hearty meal, country music and the love of the West - all served-up in an environment where everyone feels welcomed.

Kiosk Manufacturer Association Announces PCI Compliance for Unattended Self-Service Kiosks

WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- The Kiosk Manufacturer Association (KMA), the leading unattended self-service kiosk association established in 1995, today announced the launch of new initiatives in the PCI Compliance space for unattended self-service kiosks. Those initiatives include providing content for the PCI Perspectives Blog, creating a SIG or Special Interest Group on PCI SSC for unattended and semi-attended transaction, as well as new guidepost content from our sponsors and members outlining best practices.

The kiosk association has a standing PCI Compliance committee and a Slack-based working group (free to join). Members include

OTI Global, Unattended Card Payments (UCP), Datacap Systems, Ingenico, KioWare, Olea Kiosks, Lilitab and Self-Service Networks who provide Cash2Card Giftwise.

"The pandemic is fundamentally altering the relationship that business and customer have had historically. Rather than the conventional 'push' from storefront to customer, the ratio of customers 'pulling' from business is rapidly increasing. Online mechanisms are no longer optional but instead, mandatory," says association spokesman, Craig Keefner. "Contactless and touchless are the new cornerstones. Shortening those transaction timeframes whether Drive-Thru or Text-to-pay are the new base metrics."

The pandemic impact on the currencies and payment methods involved in today's secure transaction has also expanded. Cash2Card deployments are rising and instead of the old Redbox DVDs at McDonalds you may soon have a new Bitcoin ATM Kiosks.

Technologies emerging and in-use include conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and all types of visual recognition systems (automobile license and facial examples given).

Olea Kiosks, Inc. Announces Strategic Partnership with UrVenue

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Olea Kiosks®, Inc., a visionary provider of self-service kiosk solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with UrVenue, the leading hospitality technology platform that powers commerce, enhances the guest experience and monetizes a resort's real estate. With conveniently placed Olea kiosks on-property, this partnership enables venues and hotel properties to layer in another customer touchpoint that drives self-service revenue with transactions that are contactless, resource-free, branded, and always open for business.

With more than 40 years of delivering self-service solutions, Olea Kiosks® understands the value of reducing friction in the guest experience. Urvenue's 10+ years of experience in the resorts and hospitality realm and its ability to leverage its technology to monetize non-room inventory and other guest touchpoints during the in-stay journey solves one of the greatest challenges for resort managers. Combining UrVenue's powerful booking platform with self-service kiosks puts guests in complete control.

"It's exciting to partner with another U.S.-based company so focused on technology that puts the power in the hands of the user," said Frank Olea, CEO of the company that now spans four generations. "Self-service kiosks equipped with the same technology used across all customer touch points helps with workforce management and removes mundane tasks like order and payment entry to allow staff to focus on higher-value tasks that truly enhance the guest experience," added Olea.

"Partnering with a trusted kiosk brand such as Olea will help unlock the full potential of UrVenue to resorts and venues all over the world," said Deron Pearson, CEO of UrVenue. "Together we'll be able to service customers with what they want, when they want in a safe and easy way as well as provide resorts with important insights, data and guest management."

An Olea kiosk paired with UrVenue's booking solution puts hospitality patrons in the driver's seat with frictionless, on-property, cashier-less, self-service booking capabilities. Guests can now book and transact any inventory within UrVenue, including but not limited to, special event ticketing such as seasonal pop-up experiences, show tickets, restaurant reservations, pool-side cabanas, nightclub and day club admission, special promotion vouchers, sportsbook lounge seats and bundled on-property experiences to name a few.

UrVenue's hospitality-built booking platform makes it is easy to transact any type of non-room inventory on property and with Olea's flexible, modular design, the physical unit can be branded and designed for custom transactions including physical outputs such as show tickets or customized promotional vouchers or wristbands.

The pandemic has created significant disruption for the hospitality industry. Self-service kiosks reduce human interaction at a time when guests of all ages are comfortable using kiosks. In addition, venues can eliminate wait times with reservations, long lines, and processing payments, while increasing ticket lift dramatically, at a time when every second and penny of revenue counts.

Circa Resort and Casino will be the first resort to use the Olea with UrVenue kiosk at the beginning of 2021.

About Olea Kiosks®, Inc.

Olea Kiosks, Inc., is a self-service kiosk solution provider for the attractions and entertainment, healthcare and hospitality industries. Its technologically advanced, in-house manufacturing, design, and innovation have made it an industry leader. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, customers include The Habit Burger Grill, Kaiser Permanente, Empire State Building, Universal Studios, EVO Entertainment, Scientific Games, and Subway.

Datasembly Rebrands as it Evolves into Data Leader for CPGs and Retailers

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Datasembly announced a major rebranding to reflect the software company's evolution, becoming the world's leading provider of data tools for hyper-local, real-time product transparency. The rebranding is a top to bottom redesign of the company's website, logo, graphics, communications, and correspondence, aimed at modernizing and conveying their product solution for CPGs, brands, and retailers.

Datasembly is changing the way retailers and CPGs get and share pricing information, eliminating the need to settle for averaged data or constant in-person store visits. Using real-time, store-level pricing and promotions data, Datasembly's customers get unprecedented transparency between retailers, partners, and suppliers.

CEO and Co-founder Ben Reich stated, "We're always pushing the limits of what's possible with technology, and we want to make sure that our brand has a modern feel that reflects the revitalized, forward-thinking approach we've taken into looking at the data CPGs and retailers really need to make strategic business decisions."

Datasembly's proprietary technology collects billions of grocery and retail product records from hundreds of thousands of locations every day. Data includes pricing, promotions, and assortment information for both online and brick-and-mortar retailers. Datasembly's clients gain invaluable insight and competitive information for real-time product transparency. A growing client list which includes 2 of the top 5 retailers and 3 of the top 10 CPGs.

"Our vision is to provide total transparency for every product being sold everywhere. Our Series A fundraising has allowed us to methodically add the talent, capabilities, and assets that will allow us to do that - it's literally producing business-changing results for our clients," said Ben Reich.

Datasembly's rebrand and growth are both occurring during this unprecedented time. Retailers and CPGs are facing new challenges, competition is increasing, pricing and assortment is changing rapidly and better pricing intelligence is needed to improve strategic decision-making. Datasembly has proven itself to be the premiere source for unprecedented transparency in retail pricing today, and beyond.

About Datasembly

Datasembly empowers brands and retailers to make data-driven decisions about prices and promotions in real time. Datasembly collects hyper-local, real-time data from tens of thousands of retail, grocery and QSR locations across North America.
