The Entrepreneurship Award recognizes a Richardson company, individual or organization that exemplifies entrepreneurship. On November 12th, Theatro was recognized with the Entrepreneurship Award for its development of a revolutionary, new mobile communications platform that transforms the frontline employee experience within the retail and hospitality sectors.
COVID-19 continues to challenge businesses to adapt to changing customer buying behaviors. To stay competitive, operations teams need to maximize their biggest asset, their frontline employees. But for many enterprises, frontline employees are disconnected from their peers and the enterprise with have limited technology to perform their job well. This lack of technology and disconnected workforce limits enterprise agility, teamwork and customer service, making it very difficult for business to operate profitably and deliver a differentiated customer experience.

Theatro’s voice-controlled mobile platform, enables real-time communication between employees and enterprise applications without the need to manage hand-held devices. With the advantages of mobile computing and workforce optimized apps, Theatro allows enterprises in the retail and hospitality sector to adapt quickly while improving productivity and gaining the competitive advantage with service.
This award comes on the heels of recent news of Theatro’s continued expansion into Gaming and Hospitality with the successful deployment at WANAAHA Casino. Theatro is proud to be a part of the Richardson community, and looks forward to continued growth and impact.
