BeeBox Systems was founded in 2009 in a back-bedroom in Blyth, Northumberland, when school friends Stu and Steven spotted that local bars were installing flatscreen TVs to show football matches.

However, when there was no sport to show, venue managers had little use for the screens – so the pair used their computer programming knowledge to develop software that could design and show drinks promotions to profit from the unused time.

The initial concept proved a success, so after moving to purpose-built offices, they added games and music to create an all-round entertainment and promotional solution.

BeeBox Systems have now partnered with a network of trusted resellers, who deliver sales and installation across the whole of the UK.

Other products created by the pair include Push Button Games,  and touch-screen Karaoke systems.
