Wicket is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey to create sensational fan experiences – we have officially surpassed 1 Million successful entries through our system at our U.S.-based sports customer properties!
This achievement is a testament to the trust and confidence placed in our technology and team by our amazing customers across the NFL, MLB, MLS, NBA and college football. Our solutions are revolutionizing the way people interact with these venues, providing a seamless, secure, and efficient means of access.
Transforming Experiences, One Face at a Time
Since our first deployment of express access facial ticketing over 3 years ago, we’ve dedicated ourselves to refining our technology to meet the diverse needs of our valued clients in the sports and live events industry. From scanning tickets at express entry gates to unlocking doors and accessing secure areas, our facial authentication technology has quickly become an integral part of the fan, staff, and guest experiences at venues across the country.
Reaching this milestone is not just about a big number; it’s a testament to the widespread adoption and acceptance of our technology. We want to give our thanks to each and every one of our customers, partners, and users who have contributed to this remarkable achievement. Your support has been instrumental in making Wicket a leader in the facial authentication space.
What Sets Wicket Apart?
Wicket is the first company to reach this milestone in the U.S. sports market, and our team has spent years working side-by-side with our forward-thinking customers redefining what the fan and visitor experience should look like at modern venues and facilities. We don’t just say what we can do, we’ve proven we have the ability to deliver as well.
Reliability: Our facial authentication solutions have been battle tested in the wild and we’ve set the standard for accuracy and reliability. We prioritize the security AND convenience of our users, ensuring a sensational experience each time they show up to one of our touchpoints while also keeping their data privacy at the forefront.
Flexibility: Each of our customer deployments is unique, and therefore our technology needs to be flexible enough to meet the varying needs of any venue, event, use case, or pain point while providing a consistent and efficient experience for all users. We started with facial ticketing, but Wicket’s facial authentication platform is now speeding up concessions with facial payments, securing key areas of the stadium with facial credentialing, and making employees’ lives easier with facial access control.
Integratability: We recognize that validating someone’s identity is just part of the equation. That is why we directly integrate with leading ticketing, credentialing, access control, payments, and loyalty companies so that we not only authenticate the fan but can immediately associate them with their tickets, their ID, their credit card, their loyalty program, or their access credentials.
Innovationability: Ok you caught us – that’s not a word, but we are committed to pushing forward in pursuit of a better visitor experience. Our team continually explores new features and enhancements with our customers and partners to elevate the capabilities and usability of our technology.
As we celebrate this momentous achievement, we are energized to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. We’re excited for 2024, and we are more committed than ever to providing solutions that meet the ever-changing needs of our customers and users.
Thank you for being part of our journey. We look forward to the next million and beyond!
