They will remain on board and continue to run the business, thereby ensuring continuity for customers, partners and employees.The acquisition was completed in July, 2017 and adds a very complementary business to Helix Leisure’s portfolio of companies. In the months following the acquisition, Booking Boss has been fully integrated into Helix Leisure, and international growth plans are underway. Leveraging best-in-class cloud technologies, the combined development teams have been working with leading customers to develop a beautifully-integrated party booking system for another Helix Leisure company, Embed. “Using our modern cloud platform and many years of experience in online bookings, Embed’s customers can expect an intuitive and appealing application that will lead the industry in the entertainment venue pre-visit experience” says team leader Andy Welsh.For Booking Boss, the integration with Helix Leisure provides access to new markets and infrastructure to rapidly scale their products around the world.Commenting on the acquisition, Theo Sanders, CEO of Helix Leisure, said:“The industry is becoming increasingly aware that a guest’s interactions with the location start long before they step foot in the facility. Their pre-visit experiences form a vital part of their perception of a brand. With the Booking Boss acquisition, we’re now able to connect a beautiful pre-visit experience to Embed’s existing on-site capabilities, and in doing so, allow operators to engage with their guests at every step of the journey.”Renee Welsh, CEO of Booking Boss, added:“We are delighted with the opportunity to join the Helix Leisure team. Their industry leading experience, company culture and global reach is going to take Booking Boss to exciting new  industries and drive the future of the Out-of-Home Entertainment industry, which includes attractions, tour operators and activity providers.
