SAN FRANCISCO, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Built.io® – a technology provider with digital solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, connect and scale applications across mobile, web and IoT – today announced that its Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center App won an Appy Award under the "Sports App" category.
Behind the scenes, the Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center app's backend runs 1,500 automations per game across 10 unique application program interfaces, ranging from the NBA to Urban Airship to PubNub. The app uses Built.io Flow and Built.io Backend to create real-time APIs that deliver instant updates to all fans. This synchronizes real-time experiences with up-to-the-moment scores, play-by-play info, shot-chart details, team and player stats, and more.
In addition, Built.io Flow continuously polls the NBA APIs for the latest game stats (updated by the NBA every five seconds) and stores them in Built.io Backend. This new standard of how professional sports teams seamlessly integrate physical and digital touchpoints ultimately builds loyalty and a better user experience for fans.
"Today's modern sports fans expect their experiences to be digital, smart and automated no matter where they watch the game," said Neha Sampat, CEO, Built.io. "With the Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center App, fans have everything they need to enjoy an intuitive experience, by accessing real-time information about essential functions – leading to a world-class fan experience."
"Our app serves as a one-of-a-kind remote control to Golden 1 Center, the world's most technologically advanced sports and entertainment venue," said Kings Chief Technology Officer Ryan Montoya. "Through the app, fans are able to connect with enhanced arena features, engage with their friends, and create a seamless event experience from the time they wake up to when they leave the arena like never before."
