Venuetize Adds Rapid Responder Crisis Mgmt to Sports/Ent Venues

Venuetize has acquired the assets of Prepared Response, a leading innovator of emergency preparedness and crisis management solutions in the United States.

Venuetize creates seamless, integrated mobile-first experiences for sports teams, multi-purpose entertainment venues, entertainment districts, and other large facilities.

The newly acquired software enables Venuetize to add a safety and security module to its contextually-aware mobile platform, which includes existing modules of ticketing, parking, mobile wallet, proximity marketing, interactive maps, advanced wayfinding and navigation, single sign on, loyalty and rewards, and traffic and transportation, to name a few.
