Press release: Olympia Entertainment partners with ‘Janam’ contact-less ticket readers

Olympia Entertainment has partnered with a company called Janam, which builds mobile ticket readers. This may mean no more ticket-taking staff greeting you (or at least a reduced number) at Little Caesars Arena:

NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — INTIX 2021 – Janam Technologies, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers and contactless access solutions, announced today it is working with Olympia Entertainment to deploy contactless ticketing and venue access at Little Caesars Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons. Olympia Entertainment is also considering integrating Janam’s technology at its other sports and live entertainment venues, including Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers.  

Janam’s GT1 mobile pedestal delivers rapid, reliable and contactless access control for sports, performing arts and live entertainment venues. Its “plug-and-play” design transforms Janam’s proven and widely deployed handheld ticket scanners into contactless, self-service mobile pedestals that help venue operators promote safe “social distancing”, take advantage of the most advanced digital ticketing technology and save enormous cost.

By enabling guests to self-scan their paper or digital tickets, GT1 provides a tap-and-go experience that eases congestion, moves fans quickly into the venue and complies with state and local health and safety regulations for reducing the spread of COVID-19.

  1. It should help, but I doubt it eases congestion since we still have to go through metal detectors to get inside the arena. The last Wings game I went to was last February (on a weekday) and we still had to wait outside for a while, even though it wasn’t a sellout crowd. There’s just no way to speed up the process when everyone has to put their phone & keys aside and then get padded down if the detector goes off because of your boots, belt etc.
