1. FC Köln is the first club to take advantage of the new digital offering
Frankfurt, Germany – Infront Sports & Media launches a new digital solution for professional Hospitality & Guest Management in the German market. D∙SERVANT digitalises the entire hospitality process – simplifying all related activities from ticket purchasing through to the actual match and visiting the stadium. The App had been finalised for the start of the 2016/17 Bundesliga season and 1. FC Köln, marketed by Infront, was the first club to embrace the new technology.
Information before, during and after the game
As the most extensive Hospitality & Guest Management solution available on the market, D∙SERVANT is an important business tool for the event organisers while at the same time simplifying the processes for customers buying hospitality offerings. Specifically, the App provides a guest seating tool as well as an integrated invitation management feature.
In addition, game day information such as the weather, transport directions and details of the catering offer in the hospitality area is also available. As a result, D∙SERVANT is the primary information and communication channel for use before, during and after the stadium visit - supporting the organisers, hostesses, customers and other visitors.
Frank Sahler, Marketing and Sales Director of 1. FC Köln, said: “We are very pleased with the close and professional cooperation on this project – it has enabled the D∙SERVANT App to be accurately aligned to our needs. The result fits perfectly with our digitalisation strategy and creates promising new possibilities on game days for us and our partners.”
Tailored for the specific clients
Reinhardt Weinberger, Managing Director of Infront Germany, adds: “In many areas of digitalisation, Infront is at the forefront of development - where our demand for high quality goes hand in hand with the needs of our partners and customers. D∙SERVANT is easily adaptable to the specific stadium infrastructure and needs of an event organiser or rights holder.”
Stephanus Tekle, Associate Director Marketing & Sales at Infront Germany, commented: “For many clubs and also for stadium operators that stage events almost on a daily basis, hospitality is an important source of income. A digital solution such as D∙SERVANT optimises work processes, reduces costs, and professionalises hospitality management while offering new marketing opportunities.”
