SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Built.io – a technology provider with solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, integrate and scale applications across mobile, web and IoT – today announced the official "Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center App" is powered by Built.io Flow and Built.io Backend. Built.io's integration and mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS) technology enables the app – available now for iOS and Android – to provide the ultimate fan experience at the smartest, most connected arena in the world.
When it opens in October, Golden 1 Center will be a high-tech haven for NBA fans and anyone attending a concert, family show or event. In order to deliver a truly connected experience, the Sacramento Kings and Golden 1 Center sought a highly scalable platform to power their dual mobile app, bring together many different services and also demonstrate the ability to be continuously updated. The app environment also needed to facilitate the testing and deployment of yet-to-be-released features for the upcoming season.
The Sacramento Kings selected Built.io to lay the foundation for the most connected app experience to date. The Built.io platform auto scales and is highly synchronous, keeping the app running and delivering a real-time game experience with up-to-the-moment scores, play-by-play details, shot charts, team and player stats, as well as daily news and more.
Furthermore, Built.io Flow runs 1,500 automations per game across 10 different APIs spanning the NBA, Urban Airship and PubNub. Half a million in-app activities are tracked per month and an outstanding average in-app dwell time during games last season is only expected to increase during contests at Golden 1 Center.
"By connecting fans directly to the advanced features of Golden 1 Center through a new app, we're redefining and enhancing the guest experience," said Kings CTO Ryan Montoya. "Built.io's digital platform provides us with a nimble and robust technology foundation that allows us to test and iterate innovations with fans on demand, try new services and incorporate them directly into the mobile app. As the technology evolves, we'll be able to provide the best experience to our fans for years to come."
With Built.io, fans will experience a multitude of benefits within the app, including:
- One dual-mode app for both Sacramento Kings fans and Golden 1 Center guests
- First-of-its-kind gambling integration that allows Sacramento supporters to wager on various game outcomes by making predictions and competing with friends to reach the top of the leaderboard
- Pioneering bot integration with Kai – Kings Artificial Intelligence – where fans can chat to learn more about the team, stats, venue and more
- Multi-angle replays and live streams will give guests in attendance the opportunity to catch the action from multiple perspectives or re-watch a favorite play
- Quick access to buy game and event tickets, as well as manage parking passes
- New ways of visualizing a wide range of team and player data as the game progresses
- Spotify integration so fans can stay up to date with the latest from the Sacramento Kings and upcoming Golden 1 Center artists
Built.io's lightning-fast digital platform allows the app to run twice as many game updates as its competitors during the same timeframe. Additionally, the app's connected infrastructure supports everything from real-time stats to the ability to order a ride via Uber, serving as a true "remote control" to the fan experience.
"The Sacramento Kings pride themselves on being on the cutting edge of innovative technology, and Built.io Flow and Built.io Backend are two solutions that exemplify this forward thinking state of mind," said Neha Sampat, CEO, Built.io. "Both organizations are focused on using technology to create more impactful connections between people and experiences, and we're looking forward to seeing how the app provides that for fans around the world."
