Choosing the right venue management system for your stadium, arena or outdoor event can be an overwhelming task. In today’s fast-paced tech world, new functionality and technology is coming fast and furious, so management should know some new trends in the sports tech industry. Look for this new functionality to make a difference on how and where your fans order food and beverages; plus, new POS functions to shorten lines and expedite the ordering process.
Coinciding with these processes is the way ownership now can track this new tech dynamic on custom cloud dashboards designed for your venue.
In today’s market cloud-based systems are taking over multiple vertical software markets and the reason they are is because it’s less costing to set up and maintain.
First—Let’s get it started with the blend of social media and food ordering. The team can brand a loyalty points App complete with your team’s logo and inventory on it. Layered on top of that is a loyalty point system where fans can earn points for ordering F&B and merchandise within your stadium. Now you have just created your own frequent-flyer program specially for your franchise.
The team can start collecting data by a activating the Stadium1 fan App interaction tool.
Second – A self-serve POS device to help speed up the line and process more orders in a shorter amount of time. Sounds easy, right? Not so fast. This is a process that takes a great deal of thought as to the how and where to place the unit.
Everyone is all in for speeding up the line, but you must have the technology to make this happen. Lucky for your team Stadium1 has a flexible mobile device that can used as a kiosk, strategically placed to take orders and process them in record speed. Orders go directly to a kitchen screen where chefs can fulfill the orders and turn it around quickly.
The platform we use is the most ruggedized, commercial-grade and water-resistant POS device in the market today. Our end-to-end platform is noteworthy to incorporate, front-end POS, consumer self-serve POS, work-force management, stand sheets and a comprehensive merch program with one of the leading dashboard reporting platforms in the industry.
Third – Speaking of cloud-based dashboards; real-time data makes a big difference and can create revenue and reduce cost.
Today’s data runs faster and sharper than ever in these dynamic, smart POS terminals we offer. So, your team must be armed with the latest technology to make sense out of the data produced by our system and then convert it into an understandable source of revenue.
Real-time data on the Stadium1 GM App serves as a valuable function: Our clients have increased their sales by working with our deal engine to generate promotional sales and put items on sale to eliminate spoilage. Dashboard technology can also illustrate when to close a concession stand just 30 minutes early each game, which can save the team thousands of dollars. Now Stadium1, through our dashboard technology, can track all new loyalty customers and points earned for that game. It will also track your loaded ticket function while capturing all the data when tickets are redeemed.
Tech trends only help if you have the right POS platform in place.
Our system was designed and written from an ownership perspective for a stadium food and beverage and merchandise operation. With Stadium1, you’ll have a top-of-the-line POS terminal system that serves any need throughout the ballpark, from serving fans quickly, tracking inventory accurately to working off-line and increasing revenues while cutting down on expenses with your state of the art GM App.
