“We’re beyond impressed with the reliability and overall performance of Buzztime touchscreen tablets.

“This increased demand for Buzztime tablet systems in various industries underscores the versatility of our hardware, Android software and device management platform.

The custom Buzztime tablet solution even overcame Spendgo’s unique challenges, such as the need for tablets that integrate with legacy POS systems, the need for a customized Android OS with tethering, and the ability to connect to USB and charge at high speed simultaneously. After a year of searching, Spendgo concludes that Buzztime is the only hardware company able to solve such unique retail hardware challenges.

“Buzztime tablets are out-performing all other tablet platforms, and empowering us to deliver more advantages to our end customers – all at a lower cost.

For example, we’re able to install drivers, connect to ethernet while charging, and manage devices across our network,” said Spendgo CEO Ivan Matkovic.
Buzztime is building on the recent success with Spendgo, the correctional facility services provider, and other companies in verticals ranging from restaurants to signage. The company plans to continue penetrating additional verticals, leveraging its custom-built hardware and software solutions to open up even more revenue opportunities.
