LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AEG Facilities, the world's leading sports, entertainment and venue operator in the world, is expanding its relationship with cloud inspection software company Archaio in a new multi-year partnership that aims to increase efficiencies in asset inspection and facilities management across a number of AEG-owned and/or operated facilities nationwide. The patented technology provides secure, real-time inspection information that is available across mobile devices and gives users maximum visibility into the entire inspection and/or quality assurance protocol.
The partnership builds on AEG's existing relationship with Archaio at STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE (Los Angeles, CA), as well as Barclays Center (Brooklyn, NY). AEG and Archaio will begin rolling out the software in the expanded agreement to facilities domestically immediately, which initially includes Sprint Center, (Kansas City, MO), StubHub Center (Carson, CA), Valley View Casino Center (San Diego, CA), Gila River Arena (Glendale, AZ), Oracle Arena (Oakland, CA), Target Center (Minneapolis, MN), PPG Paints Arena (Pittsburgh, PA), KFC Yum! Center (Louisville, KY), Los Angeles Convention Center (Los Angeles, CA), Hawaii Convention Center (Honolulu, HI) and Puerto Rico Convention Center (San Juan, PR).
"With the efficiency increases and successes we've experienced using the Archaio software at STAPLES Center, Barclays Center and other venues, it was only natural to extend this partnership across some of our other top-notch facilities nationwide," said Chuck Steedman, AEG Facilities' Chief Operating Officer. "The cloud-based Archaio system is remarkably intuitive and is bringing cutting-edge technology to our facilities maintenance practices."
The Archaio technology offers a new level of quality control and streamlined efficiency for facilities. The mobile and cloud-based software creates a modernized inspection environment where venue staff are able to easily perform inspections and preventative maintenance tasks on almost any mobile device. The data is then captured and available to management in real time via detailed dashboards and reporting analytics. The system can also be used 100 percent paper free, which is not only cost efficient for AEG Facilities but also beneficial to the environment.
"At Archaio we are constantly trying to offer our clients the very best in cloud inspection and reporting software," said Roy Judelson, CEO and founder, Archaio. "Expanding our partnership with AEG means not only being able to offer the best in facility maintenance but also building our company alongside AEG – one of the best in the global sports and live entertainment business."
"There are a lot of moving parts in managing a multi-use sports stadium like StubHub Center. To have real-time mobile access to facility maintenance inspections will not only increase efficiency but allow us to concentrate on our No. 1 priority – maximizing the fan experience," said Katie Pandolfo, General Manager of StubHub Center.
