“The implementation of the ISS technology allows us to increase our efficiency in responding to our fans’ concerns and other stadium issues, which will both improve our security and boost the overall experience of attending Notre Dame football games."
Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 21, 2010
Notre Dame joins with In Stadium Solutions (ISS) to announce the implementation of their cutting edge “Command Post” Venue Management System beginning with the 2010 football season, which includes both an enhanced version of the ISS text-message system used successfully last year for the 2009 football season, as well as their new Incident Management System. As part of this initiative, Notre Dame and ISS also look to implement the use of 2-Way Hand Held Devices with select individuals within their stadium personnel teams.
The ISS text system allows fans to communicate inconspicuously, discreetly and directly with the stadium’s command post if assistance is needed in dealing with an unruly fan, an injury, cleanup or various other issues. The ISS Incident Management System allows for all incidents occurring on game day to be tracked and recorded in a central database for future reference. The system also provides the ability to automatically notify the appropriate departments and their respective staff members that are the responders to each incident. Files, pictures and videos can all be attached to these incidents which will be tracked from the stadium’s command post on game days. This fully integrated platform allows for automation of the reporting and recording of incidents and event tasks at each game.
“We are excited to utilize this innovative technology to enhance the fan experience at Notre Dame and help us more efficiently and effectively manage our Stadium. We are proud to put Notre Dame at the forefront of technology,” said Mike Seamon, Director of Game Day Operations. “The implementation of the ISS technology allows us to increase our efficiency in responding to our fans’ concerns and other stadium issues, which will both improve our security and boost the overall experience of attending Notre Dame football games.”
“ISS couldn’t be more proud than to work with an institution with Notre Dame’s tradition and help them manage their events and make sure their fans can enjoy each game in a safe environment where their needs are attended to as quickly as possible,” said Scott Meyers, VP of Sales & Marketing for ISS.
