Today we are very excited to announce that we have been recognized by industry research leader, Gartner, Inc. and awarded a Gartner Data & Analytics Excellence Award for Best Use of Data in a Product or Service. The awards recognize excellence in data and analytics technology to drive best-in-class initiatives.
This award is in recognition for the amazing results we have delivered for our customers, specifically the San Francisco 49er’s who saw a $2 million dollar revenue gain and the Orlando Magic who increased ticket sales by over $1 million, both team results were from using VenueNext’s technology platform for their first season with us! Our platform provides valuable data insights that help the team engage better with fans and build upon their season ticket holders, as well as increase revenue to the bottom line through data-driven business decisions.
Six winners and 12 finalists were chosen from a pool of 152 submissions across all six categories. While the criteria were different for each category, all submissions were assessed by a team of Gartner analysts, and honorees were selected by benchmarking against world-class performance standards. Gartner looked for submissions with a strong organizational and leadership component, effective use of modern technologies, and most of all clear business outcomes.
We look forward to continue to deliver results for all of our sport and entertainment customers and our upcoming expansion into the healthcare market to help improve upon the patient and visitor experience at hospitals.
