Mobile App powered by SAP HANA to Help Host Committee Volunteers Stay Connected and Assist Thousands of Visitors During Super Bowl Week from Their Smartphones
SAN FRANCISCO —
SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) and the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee have taken the Super Bowl 50 volunteer team program mobile with the launch of the SB50 Host Committee Volunteers mobile app.
Powered by SAP HANA and created in partnership with SAP, the SB50 Host Committee Volunteers mobile app will help ensure a more effective and connected experience for the 5,000 volunteers on site during Super Bowl week. As a founding partner of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee, SAP is using its best-in-class solutions to help the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee to Run Simple.
“The SB50 Host Committee Volunteers mobile app will be the go-to tool that ensures our volunteer team is connected, supported and engaged,” said Keith Bruce, CEO of the Host Committee. “Through our partnership with SAP, we are able to leverage technology that not only provides a powerful solution for our operations but also gives us unique insights to provide the best experience possible for our volunteers.”
Using the app, Host Committee volunteers can manage schedules, participate in virtual training, access local maps and event information for out-of-town guests and communicate with other volunteers. Most important, the app allows the Host Committee to communicate in real time with volunteers. Additionally, real-time beacon technology will provide opportunities to adjust staffing based on location activity and demand.
“Leveraging the power of our in-memory database, SAP HANA, the Host Committee and its volunteer team will be better prepared and connected to provide a positive experience for the millions of fans descending on the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50,” said Sam Yen, chief design officer, SAP. “SAP HANA will play a significant role in our presence throughout the Super Bowl, helping to simplify operations and ultimately enhance the fan experience.”
The Host Committee volunteer team is group of 5,000 people who will welcome guests to the Bay Area and provide them with a helping hand during Super Bowl Week. Host Committee volunteers are key ambassadors for both Super Bowl 50 and the San Francisco Bay Area, and reflect the tremendous diversity, spirit and character that the region is known for.
Super Bowl 50 will be celebrated in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2016. The Super Bowl 50 game will be played at Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara — home of the San Francisco 49ers — on February 7, 2016.
