Understanding the Guest Beyond a Ticket Stub

Wanting to get a better view of guests coming into the stadium, SAP Center is using Proximity MX to collect data on visitors’ names, numbers, and emails. SAP Center is able to learn which visitors are attending sporting events, music concerts, or other shows. One of the most valuable insights they gained was realizing most season ticket holders actually resell their tickets. Without implementing this WiFi onboarding process, the insight would never have been discovered.

Monetizing Captive Portal Engagements

With Proximity MX™’s customizable engagement tool, SAP Center is transforming their customer WiFi onboarding flow with a higher quality and more user friendly experience. SAP Center is taking advantage of the smart captive portal real estate by selling advertising sponsorships. To date, their captive portal has gained over 300K views, proving the sponsor’s investment has been highly valuable.

Preparing for SAP’s Future

Now that SAP Center has a better view into visitor insights and analytics, they will be able to use Proximity MX to categorize users through at-location personas, such as frequent visitor, season ticket holder, merchandise buyer, concert goer, etc. The next step for SAP Center is to send contextual engagements based on identity and location. For example, SAP Center will have the ability to target concession stand dwellers with offers and promotions on food.
