“Throughout our most challenging year ever we proved the agility of our business model by posting sequentially stronger sales quarters in the second half of 2020 and we finished the year with momentum as we enter 2021. I could not be more proud of the entire TransAct team and their resilience,” said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies. “Our FST market has picked up considerable steam and posted a 27% year-over-year revenue gain despite the obvious challenges our customers were facing, demonstrating the mission-critical nature of our BOHA! solutions. We saw the number of paid terminals in the market jump to 5,688 from 3,813 at the end of the third quarter of 2020, and we expect this number to accelerate as we move through 2021 and drive a sustainable base of recurring FST revenue. We are also starting to see green shoots in our Casino and Gaming market as the pandemic continues to subside and gambling floors begin to prepare for life after COVID-19.”

Shuldman continued, “Finally, we launched our all-new, iOS native BOHA! Restaurant Operations Platform, which is paired with our BOHA! Workstation and iPad and we are beginning to see our sales pipeline grow. Technology from BOHA! and Apple devices work together to bring restaurants a bold, mobile-first solution to automate back-of-house tasks, reduce labor costs, and drive efficiencies.”
