Contactless mobile experience includes integrated ticketing, mobile payments, parking, and mapping capabilities
TAMPA, Fla. (June 30, 2021) – Spectra, one of the industry’s leading venue management and hospitality providers, has partnered with Venuetize, leaders in mobile-first and advanced payment technology, to offer a universal mobile application across its 330+ properties that provides guests a contactless experience while attending live events.
Depending upon the custom needs of each Spectra-managed venue, onsite field teams will have the ability to choose from a full native application, an integration into an existing application, or app-less ordering and payments.
Once a property has opted in, guests attending concerts, sporting events and other live entertainment will be able to utilize the Spectra Mobile Application to search for and select the specific property and use the venue’s integrated ticketing, mobile payments, parking, and mapping capabilities.
The OC Fair in Costa Mesa, Calif. will be the first venue to test-drive the Spectra Mobile Application. Guests will be able to mobile order and pay with ease by QR Code scan and web deployment for their food and beverage. In addition, the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, Colo. will be the first property to utilize the Spectra native app, which will go live in August 2021.
“Our relationship with Spectra provides a tremendous growth opportunity for our company,” said Perry Teague, VP of Business Development. “Under the guidance of Spectra leadership, we will work together to identify properties that can leverage our mobile solution to provide a premier experience for their guests.”
“As we continue to reopen venues in a post-COVID world, our clients and our guests are expecting a seamless, touchless experience. Spectra’s partnership with Venuetize is about providing the best options available for mobile-first technology and contactless payments,” Jim Pekala, Spectra’s CFO and EVP of Strategy Planning, said. “We were looking for a partner that could handle the complexity that comes with integrating different technology ecosystems across hundreds of venues. Venuetize has risen to the challenge, and we are excited to launch our mobile app this summer.”
