PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2016) - Qylur Intelligent Systems, a Silicon Valley technology company, and Levi's® Stadium announced today a long-term deployment of the Qylatron™ Entry Experience Solution at the stadium. The Qylatron, which will be used at a wide range of events, is an automated, self-service entry system that combines fan greeting, ticket-taking, and bag security screening for staff and guests.
"We're looking forward to continuing to welcome guests to Levi's Stadium with a great experience while enhancing our security operation with the Qylatron," said Jim Mercurio, general manager and vice president of stadium operations at Levi's® Stadium. "From our base in Silicon Valley, we have the benefit of working with world-leading technology innovators like Qylur, which provides us the potential to develop new industry standards involving gate entry operations and guest experience."
The deployment, first unveiled in late 2015, is the first at a stadium in the United States. The Levi's® Stadium operations team initiated the deployment of the Qylatron for a range of uses beginning in 2015. The Qylatron was first introduced for daily stadium tours and then gradually expanded to catered events, employee screening, and finally to larger-scale events including international sporting events and concerts. The partners have solidified the collaboration with a long-term commercial deployment agreement. More recently, Levi's® Stadium utilized the Qylatron for major music concerts and for international soccer tournament matches. The system was used for stadium employees as well as guests carrying allowed bags.
The collaboration is set to redefine entry and security processes and operations for everyday visitors to Levi's® Stadium, and to raise the bar for venues with similar responsibilities, such as other stadiums, amusement parks, landmark buildings, transportation hubs, airports, and secure facilities.
"Qylur and Levi's® Stadium are demonstrating how connected smart machines can be the next step in the service of people. Our collaboration signals the start of a transformation in venue security and operations in the United States," says Dr. Lisa Dolev, CEO and founder of Qylur Intelligent Systems. "For too long, organizations have had to make a tradeoff between security and customer service, but Qylur's technology innovations help resolve this conflict. With the Qylatron, venues can improve operational efficiencies and tie guest experience and entry process together in a way that both makes security less invasive for attendees and fans, and creates new marketing value for the venue's brand."
Following a well-received commercial deployment of the Qylatron at the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ games in Brazil, the solution was recently used at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, through ISDS, an official sponsor and supplier of Rio 2016 Olympics. Levi's® Stadium is Qylur's first customer in the U.S. sports venue market.
The award-winning Levi's® Stadium, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, has taken advantage of the area's high-tech talent to meet its goal of delivering guests an experience that's both fun and secure. Levi's® Stadium has a demonstrated commitment to use advanced technology to increase security while continuing to explore ways to enhance the guest experience.
