Before I get into this post I just want to state up front that I don't get paid to post about anything or anyone. I am passionate about getting the word out about companies I believe in and ones that are being truly innovative in the sports world.
As we continue to explore venue tech for Sports 2.0, I always come back to one of my favourite companies and a company that is set to thrive in the new landscape. WaitTime is an AI based real-time cloud based crowd monitoring technology that was designed to let fans and arena staff know where bottlenecks are occurring in the building. The main use pre Covid, was to create efficiencies for fans and get them back to the action as quickly as possible, while reducing lines and increasing transactions at the till to generate revenue. Post Covid, the added value is the ability to support social distancing and safety measures at venues which as you can imagine is a huge game changer.
These are the technologies venue staff need to look at and include in their return to action strategy. The hit all the points that I speak about ( Fan enhancement, data analytics and revenue generation) that set you up for success.
