Chester Racecourse is leveraging the innovative solutions provided by venue operations technology firm 24/7 Software to further enhance its operations and guest experiences.
Chester Racecourse is officially recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest racecourse still in operation. As well as racing, the venue hosts many events, from conferences to weddings, making it a year-round hub for entertainment and celebration.
To further elevate its status and uphold its commitment to safety, security, and guest satisfaction, Chester Racecourse has partnered with the global market leader for venue operations for venue technology, 24/7 Software. Through this collaboration, Chester Racecourse has implemented the enterprise platform designed to enhance their operations across safety and security, guest experience, and facilities management.
“We’ve been able to integrate our 24/7 Software system seamlessly across Chester Racecourse thanks to the excellent onboarding support and ease of use of this brilliant package,’ says Matthew Jones, head of health and safety at Chester Racecourse.
“24/7 Software has revolutionised our Silver Control Room and the way we communicate with colleagues and guests, whilst ensuring we have auditable records that mean we can really learn lessons to enhance the guest experience on site, as well as the health, safety, and security of our colleagues, guests, and contractors.”
