The guest journey from ticket purchase to entering the stadium has traditionally been a manual, paper driven one. Go to a ticket office and buy paper tickets. Call the ticket office and buy paper tickets. Go online and buy paper tickets. Take your paper ticket to the gate and show it to the steward. Anyone can purchase a ticket and use that ticket to get into the stadium.
This is what it always was.
Anyone can get into the stadium. Paper tickets, ticket offices and staffing are all costs that are no longer acceptable. The digital world has rapidly become core to our lives and guests now want the convenience and security of the digital world. And they want it in their pocket.
Stadium operators want to increase efficiency, increase security, and increase convenience. They want to reduce fraud, eliminate ticket handling costs, and ensure the best end to end experience for their guests.
There is a new way. There is a digital way.
Digital ticketing lets you take advantage of the digital world and meet guest expectations. The smartphone is now the centre of our lives. The rapid adoption of travel passes and payments by phone has opened the door for tickets to wallet.
The end-to-end journey for a guest is now fully digital. Purchase from the online retailer, ticket is delivered via email, add the ticket to your guest’s wallet. When they get to the gate hold the phone near the reader. That’s it. The simplest guest journey into your stadium.
There is also the huge benefit of adding parking to your stadium. Whether it is paid parking or just car park control, our integrated solutions give you and your guest options. Book a parking space when the event ticket is booked. Manage staff parking, visitor parking and public parking in the same solution. Use licence plate technology to decide who comes into your car park.
With parking also comes Electric Vehicles. The increase in demand for EV charging has increased rapidly in a very short timeframe. Add fast charging units and connect it to your parking solution for combined park and charge or deploy standalone chargers so staff and guests have easy access to charge their vehicles.
Purchase a ticket online and it is delivered straight to your guest’s smartphone. Using NFC readers for the most secure entry saving time for your guests and cost for you.
Using NFC, RFID or QR ticketing, the mobile optimised readers can either be deployed with our rugged gates or integrated into your existing turnstiles maximising the efficiency of your system.
