How to Organize Visitors, Deliver Key Messages and Promote Products & Services

Bill Bolton Arena, like many other sports and recreational facilities, faced a number of challenges in managing their snack bar menu and ice pad schedules. With a large number of visitors coming through the arena every day, it was difficult to keep track of the constantly changing schedules and keep them updated on a regular basis. Additionally, the snack bar menu, which was displayed using a basic printed menu, was outdated and unappealing to customers.

These challenges were further compounded by the fact that the arena was undergoing a renovation at the time, which presented an opportunity to update their systems and make them more efficient. This was when a digital signage solution was proposed as a complete solution to address the challenges they were facing.

By implementing a digital signage system for the snack bar, the arena was able to create an engaging and interactive experience for customers. The new system allowed for dynamic content that could be easily updated and changed as needed, providing visitors with real-time information on menu items, prices, and specials. This not only helped to improve the customer experience but also helped to increase sales for the snack bar.

For the ice pad schedules, the traditional whiteboard system was replaced with a digital signage solution that displayed schedules in real-time, making it easier for staff and visitors to keep track of available ice rink times, book rentals, and register for events. This eliminated the need for manual updates and provided a more efficient and streamlined process for managing schedules.

Overall, the implementation of a digital signage solution provided a complete solution to the challenges that the Bill Bolton Arena was facing, improving the customer experience and making operations more efficient.
