The Future of Mobile NFC Contactless Ticketing is Here

The Future of Mobile NFC Contactless Ticketing is Here

26.08.2020

At Fortress we believe that Mobile NFC Contactless Ticketing is the future of the fan experience across stadiums and arenas. Our NFC Solution, which integrates with iOS and Android, offers a secure and seamless method to enter and interact with venues while also helping to identify fans and creating digital membership programs.

 

Key features include:

  • Direct integration with existing ticketing systems, creating a seamless process for teams and fans to transition from contactless cards, paper tickets and less secure barcodes to NFC tickets and membership passes.
  • A versatile PASS EDITOR application that enables the design, creation and management of both single and season NFC passes.
  • NFC Member Passes are added just ONCE to a fan’s mobile wallet and will automatically update with their individualized and relevant game and seat information, saving the burden of always having to add new tickets every game.
  • NFC Passes encourage downloading the team’s app, but can be used to send notifications without it.

“It may take awhile for the fans’ common meeting point to be the stadium again, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a common meeting point in the interim… We just started hosting virtual fan experiences, incorporating loyalty members to interact with the game. We have to be forward-thinking, leading the shift and meeting our fans there.” Said Ralph Esquibel, VP of IT at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Proud to be working with the Dodgers during these times.

Fortress has been working alongside over 150 teams worldwide to help ease fans back into stadiums and arenas when the time is right.

Here are five solutions we offer:

  • Contactless & NFC Ticketing: Latest generation technology allows fans to scan their own tickets with staff watching from a safe distance.
  • Color Coded Lanes: Measured boxes on floor and traffic light systems hold fans in a safe space.
  • Designated Gates: Spread the load by pre-assigning a ticket to a specific lane and entry scanner.
  • Health Questionnaires & Temperature Pre-Checks: Staff and accredited personnel are sent a questionnaire before attending the event, and have a temperature scan at a pre-check station.
  • Going Cashless: Easy to deploy cashless solutions remove points of close interaction between staff and the visitor.
