NHL's New York Islanders tap Fiserv for cashless transactions at UBS Arena
The New York Islanders have partnered with financial technology firm Fiserv to enable cashless payments at the team’s new UBS Arena.
Fiserv will provide its Clover point-of-sale hardware and Bypass point-of-sale software for the new payment options, which the National Hockey League’s (NHL) franchise says will meet the growing consumer demand for digital and contactless payment options.
The integrated technology will support mobile and in-app ordering, self-service kiosks, grab-and-go marketplaces, as well as touchless orders to ensure the cashless payment capabilities of the entire UBS Arena.
Over 350 Clover devices will enable quick and contactless purchasing and cut down queues at UBS Arena, which opened in November and cost US$1.1 billion.
The Islanders, who also intend to streamline food and beverage orders, will gain access to real-time data and analytics for sales and operational performance through Fiserv’s hardware and software.
Clover and Bypass are used by over 50 professional sports stadiums and 300 other venues across the US.
Having opened just last month, the UBS Arena plans to host over 150 major events annually and intends on being carbon neutral before 2024.
