LOOP SOLUTION TO PROVIDE HOUSTON ATHLETICS WITH ABILITY TO ACHIEVE CASHLESS AND CONTACTLESS GOALS
Given the health risks related to COVID-19 and the uncertainty about the duration of its impact on society, UH Athletics will be working with Loop in the development and implementation of a contactless and cashless solution for fans and guests attending events at TDECU Stadium. Loop’s services will help Houston Athletics deliver on this goal by first implementing its contact tracing solution, which will provide Houston football fans and guests safe and secure access when attending events.
Secondly, Loop’s e-commerce solutions will be integrated within the platform to provide fans with an ability to purchase event tickets, concessions, merchandise products, and parking services without having to use physical cash.
Finally, with users now using the platform to conduct their purchases and access events, Loop’s artificial intelligence marketing services will provide unmatched personalized promotions and engagement opportunities, creating a more interactive fan experience at Houston athletic events. Loop’s services and technologies will offer a more robust game day experience for all Houston football fans.
Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated, “Our first priority is reopening and keeping campus doors open through our proven and scalable contact tracing platform. Secondly, we want to help UH maintain and increase its revenues. We expect to generate meaningful revenue from monthly fees associated to active users on the Loop platform as well through participation in a revenue share. With our integrated product stack, UH and all of the other 356 NCAA Div.1 colleges can gain immediate access to all of Loop’s products and services and benefit from increased profitability through streamlined operational efficiencies. We intend to deliver a future proof campus experience, so the next wave of Covid-19 does not close their doors for good. Loop is the complete solution.”
University of Houston’s Deputy Athletic Director David Tagliarino stated, “A main goal for us is to administer enhanced safety protocols and best practices, measures that instill confidence among our fans and guests during these challenging times due to Covid-19. Loop’s solution is appealing because it also provides fully automated and personalized fan experiences with large-scale user adoption and enhanced fan engagement opportunities. In addition to improving the way we interact with fans inside and outside the stadium, Loop’s contact tracing will greatly assist our efforts in returning fans to our venues in a safe and prudent manner.”
