Scott Nestler, managing partner of SafeSeating Solutions, joined the podcast this week to talk about his new SaaS that was developed to help athletic departments plan for the return of fans to the stands for football, basketball, baseball and other sports.
Whenever fans are allowed in the stands again, stadiums and arenas will likely be operating at reduced capacity. So, how do you seat 30% capacity while following local guidelines and restrictions, keeping family units together and giving priority to certain groups? Simply input your stadium manifest and a list of groups you wish to seat and this software will spit out a proposed seating chart that takes into account the guidelines you want to follow.
Scott talked through how the software came to be, how it works and all the ways it can be used by facilities managers and venue directors. It’s application goes beyond college athletics and could be used for professional athletics or for other venues such as theaters.
