GuestAssist is pleased to announce that the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League will be the first CFL team providing their unique fan texting service to fans at Percival Molson Stadium this coming season. The Alouettes join a growing list of teams and venues that are using GuestAssist to deliver an elevated game day experience for ticket holders. These include stadiums and arenas in the NCAA, NFL, MLB, NHL, MLS and now the CFL.
"We are very pleased with our growth
in Canada with end users from the NHL, MLS and now CFL adopting GuestAssist.
GuestAssist allows guests to use their cell phones to text a venue
specific keyword into stadium operations, opening a discreet conversation.
Issues relating to security, medical and guest services can be qualified
quickly and the appropriate personnel can be dispatched to serve the
guest", said GuestAssist founder Jeremy Konko.
"Montreal Alouettes fans are passionate about their team and football. Ownership is committed to providing the best game day experience possible and believe that GuestAssist will help us deliver on that commitment. Our guests are our most valued asset and we believe the GuestAssist platform opens a new communication channel that will support and grow that valued relationship ", said Mark Weightman, VP, Operations and Events.
“GuestAssist gives large venues such
as stadiums, arenas and theme parks a proven tool for communicating
with customers and managing and responding to operational needs and
ticket holders’ requests,” Konko said. “Text messaging is the
ideal communications vehicle in loud stadiums and it allows for secure,
anonymous communication and real-time response.”
GuestAssist will also provide the Alouettes
with post-event reporting and analysis of guests’ concerns to help
the team’s front office improve staffing, fine-tune security procedures
and better understand fans’ common questions and further concerns.
