Mobile apps have a place in just about every type of business, non more so than sporting stadiums. Sapere were approached to help build a sporting stadium app for corporate hospitality.
Sapere were approached by a national company to help mobilise a corporate hostitality app. The app which was installed into the back of corportate seating at football stadia was created to allow the user to order drinks, food and other refreshments along with the ability to view information on the sporting event and place bets via the app.
The current version of the app was running from a tablet installed into the back of seats and needed certain infrastructure to work so wasn't accessible to the rest of the stadiums users. As this number can often be in the tens of thousands the app needed to be developed to work on all the mobile platforms, at the time these were iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry.
To help maximise the budget and target the most SmartPhones Sapere helped produce a HTML5 complaint mobile app. The engine of the app was developed in one language with different variations in the design to ensure the app worked on the most devices.
The app incorporated betting capabilities, playback facilities so football fans could see replays of the goals or action. In app purchases featured prominantly so stadium merchandise could be offered to stadium visitors with appropriate voucher codes.
These are the platforms Sapere used to deliver the solution.
The following business benefits were realised by the software user.
