StadiumPark Touts New and Exciting Technology Update
StadiumPark, a mobile payment app for stadium, arena and event parking, provides reciprocal benefits to venues and their event attendees. Its users are able to pay for their parking using their phone and avoid long lines by entering through unique “StadiumPark Lanes,” which, with their rapid transaction times, move more quickly than cash lanes.
Venue owners and operators gain from creating a better fan experience with the adaptation of innovative technology, increase in-venue spending by bringing customers in more quickly, and increase revenue from reducing the amount of cash transactions.
The company’s original technology worked by letting users chose from a list of venues to generate a unique QR code, which was scanned by an iPad mini operated by parking attendants. This technology worked seamlessly in its two pilot projects -- at the First Niagara Center for Buffalo Sabres hockey games and at a Monster Jam event held at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.
The new update to the technology, which will soon be available on the Apple App Store, is even more intuitive, simple and robust than before.
The app acts as a scanner itself and scans a QR code held on a lanyard around the neck of parking attendants in StadiumPark’s unique lane entries. Upon a successful transaction, the user shows the receipt to the parking attendant. It has a live ticking-clock so users cannot take screenshots and cheat the system.
StadiumPark’s Founder Jeremy Crane said, “Our new technology developments are very exciting for the company. It now makes StadiumPark easier for venues to adapt and enhances the user experience. All of our venue prospects have taken a strong interest our new system.” [Source: StadiumPark]
