The partnership is two-fold, encompassing both co-marketing/distribution, and integration development. Co-marketing initiatives began with sales and marketing teams from both companies training on the respective applications, services and offerings of each partner.
The second initiative calls for Mangia to integrate with STADIS, the IMS developed open-venue architecture-based integration platform that integrates all fan-facing ticketing, food and beverage POS, including Volante Systems, and retail merchandising applications, including Retail Pro.
IMS is the inventor of STADIS© and the leading provider of Value Added Ticketing systems for the Sports, Leisure, and Entertainment Industry. Leveraging a unique methodology that integrates most of the preferred industry solutions (ticketing, POS, concessionaires, etc.), IMS helps customers increase profit and per cap revenue while capturing valuable information about fan purchases and behavior. With nearly 1 in 4 MLB clubs and clients in MiLB, NFL, NBA, NHL and the NCAA, STADIS leads the league in generating incremental attendance, per cap spending, sales uplift and breakage.
Mangia, founded in 2007, allows fans to use their phones to order food, drinks and merchandise and have it all delivered right to their seats or prepared for pick-up at an express window. Mangia is currently in operation in nine professional and NCAA venues.
