Dolphins engage Zudy to enhance Hard Rock Stadium operations

NFL American football franchise the Miami Dolphins has announced what it claims is an innovative multi-year partnership with software company Zudy that will include the entitlement of Hard Rock Stadium’s club and suite level.

Through the strategic technology agreement, Zudy will also enable the Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium to enhance and build new systems, modernise operations, and participate as an active partner for continuous improvement.

Zudy using Vinyl, a unique No Code declarative application development platform, will enable the Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium to quickly adapt to the ever-changing business environment where safe access is of the upmost importance. The focus of this initiative will include game day credentialing, inventory management, staff administration, facility access application and workflows.

“Achieving aggressive goals for continuous modernisation and fan safety is critical in today’s environment,” said Zudy founder and chief operating officer, Trish Kennedy. “With our revolutionary technology and expert resources based in Miami’s Tech Hub, we are well positioned to deliver immediate solutions for all areas of the Dolphin’s business.”

The Zudy deal comes after the Dolphins were part of a partnership announced in February between digital health products manufacturer Zyter and telecommunications company Verizon to enhance safety measures at sports and entertainment venues.

The Zyter ThermalAlert thermal imaging platform can automatically monitor fans’ temperatures when they walk into a venue. When paired with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Edge, the platform can be streamlined for quicker entry, fewer choke points and less congestion than venues utilising in-person, handheld temperature scanners.

Zyter had worked with Verizon to implement Zyter ThermalAlert at Hard Rock Stadium. The technology has been used to screen employees and staff at the stadium.

Commenting on the team’s latest deal, Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium senior vice-president and chief revenue officer, Jeremy Walls, said: “We are excited to partner with Zudy on this relationship that will help transform our organisation.

“Drawing upon their 30 years of global enterprise experience will be invaluable to our business.”
