Stadiums Queensland has signed a five-year deal with Queensland-based SaaS technology provider to the sports and hospitality sectors, MSL Solutions Limited, to supply new point-of-sale (POS) systems.
Under the terms of the $3.6 million-plus contract, MSL will deliver a new integrated and “state of the art” POS system across Stadiums Queensland’s two most substantial holdings, the Gabba and Suncorp Stadium, with the agreement made public to with an announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
The deal will cover 880 SwiftPOS terminals and mobile-enabled devices across the two stadia, with the $3.6 million contract covering upfront and recurring expenses, including hardware, software, support and implementation of the technologies.
Stadiums Queensland currently owns and operates more than $1.2 billion worth of sporting and entertainment infrastructure and manages nine major sporting venues.
Stadiums Queensland’s group executive, technology service, Angela Henderson said that the overarching goal is to improve its stadia’s catering outlets, function areas and suites by offering a more modernised system that would serve to improve commercial outcomes.
“Beyond the POS, we will have new digital menu-boards, real-time catering reporting, mobile device ordering, compatibility with our membership system coupled with advanced loyalty schemes, marketing and promotional opportunities. And a big plus was the in-built resiliency protections in the event of an unplanned outage,” she said.
The Gabba Stadium will play host to both the 2032 Brisbane Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
In FY21, venues operated by Stadiums Queensland collectively hosted more than 3.2 million guests.
