Until now, it hasn’t been easy to harness the collective power of solitary systems. Today, VenueNext is bringing unprecedented integration to both existing and new systems to amplify all that venues have to offer their guests, and generate real business intelligence that transforms business outcomes.
From sports stadiums and arenas to concert spaces, hospitals, hotels, transportation systems, conference venues to theme parks, and all large venues in between, the VenueNext technology platform and context-aware app provide deeper insight into guest behavior, ultimate control over your entire ecosystem, and a substantial return on investment.
VenueNext debuted in 2014, during the San Francisco 49ers’ first home game of the season at the brand new Levi's® Stadium and has enjoyed tremendous success since then with deployments at other venues including Yankee Stadium, AT&T Stadium, Home of the Dallas Cowboys, Amway Center, Home of the Orlando Magic, Vikings' new U.S Bank Stadium and Churchill Downs, Home of the Kentucky Derby. We are now the leaders in sports & entertainment, but our platform can be implemented at many other types of venues like hospitality and healthcare. Our team of experienced technical developers has worked for many great ventures including Google, Facebook, Dish Network, Sling Media, AOL, Netscape, and Oracle. Based in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and New York, we thrive on solving the most difficult physical and digital integration challenges for venues.
