Appetize & SIDEARM Sports Partner To Bring Mobile Ordering To CollegesAugust 27, 2018
News & Events
Learfield’s SIDEARM Sports is partnering up with our Point of Sale solutions to provide digital ordering and seamless payment experiences to college fans. With over 1,100 college campuses nationwide, SIDEARM Sports is the nation’s leading provider of collegiate athletic web and mobile solutions. Combined with our cutting edge Point of Sale technology, fans can expect fast transactions to keep them in their seats for game day.
Our Mobile Ordering platform directly integrates with the SIDEARM Sports Mobile Application through its API, or Application Programming Interface. This allows fans to choose their seats, view menu items for purchase, and checkout right from their smartphone. Upon ordering, our POS platform will send the orders to the Kitchen Display System for delivery or pickup, and fans will receive order updates via text message.
“SIDEARM is focused on delivering an exceptional fan experience to our collegiate partners. It was only natural that we incorporate the ordering and payment experience into our platform,” Jeff Rubin, President/CEO of SIDEARM Sports. “As a leader in the mobile Point of Sale space, we are excited to partner with Appetize to bring modern and innovative ordering solutions to our partners that will improve the guest experience and increase revenue opportunities.”
SIDEARM’s current college deployments will easily be able to enable mobile ordering for each athletic department right from their existing SIDEARM application. A mutual client for both companies, University of North Carolina, will be the first client to deploy the joint solution.
SIDEARM’s platform drives new revenue opportunities for campuses by improving the fan experience and promoting brand awareness. With this partnership, their clients will now have the opportunity to discover additional revenue as our mobile orders deliver a 20% larger average order size than traditional concession sales. Campuses are now able to monitor and manage their entire operations, develop custom menu offerings, track inventory levels, and run real-time reports through Appetize Connect, our highly intuitive web-based Point of Sale management platform.
“We’re thrilled to partner with SIDEARM Sports who not only shares the common mission of improving the guest experience, but who also provides a platform that complements our omni-channel approach to Point of Sale,” says Kevin Anderson, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Appetize. “Together, we are meeting the guests beyond the traditional register within their favorite team app, and providing a convenient way to make purchases on their own time.”
Our technology continues to provide faster and easier-to-use payment abilities for enterprise businesses, while providing enhanced security, reliability, redundancy, inventory management and increased guest analytics, all critical pieces that large scale organizations demand for their operations.
