2. Problem & Solution
High traffic, high-value venues – sports arenas, shopping districts, transportation hubs, and others, have evolved with a diverse set of incompatible systems that are integral to operations. However, because of the diverse nature of the technology, it can be challenging to harness these disparate systems to optimize the consumer experience. Venuetize has built an interoperable ecosystem of more than 100 third party systems, a scalable platform, and a rich set of feature modules including: a mobile wallet; location-detection and proximity marketing; safety and security; and building automation. The company’s flexible, and extensible platform allows customers to leverage their siloed systems to both improve the consumer experience, and increase revenue opportunity.
