Chuck E Cheese and Semnox celebrate amusement partnership

What started as a mere test of an RFID-based debit card system in 2014 has since proven to be mutually beneficial for both companies.

“Partnering with Semnox to roll out our RFID technology upgrade for our concept was one of the best decisions we have made at CEC in the last five years,” said Roger Cardinale, president of CEC Entertainment. “We were concerned initially because Semnox was a smaller organisation but it exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Our operations team views Semnox as part of our organisation and that is the best endorsement any vendor could hope for.”

Kiran Karanki, CEO of Semnox, said: “It is a proud moment for us to have not only won the business of CEC but to have retained them as a very highly referable client. I believe the relationship has been mutually rewarding with continuous innovation driven by both companies. We are thankful to the CEC team for having placed faith in us.”
