After winning the Access Control tender for the Open Championship last autumn, we had to walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk at Royal Birkdale in July to ensure the event was a success.
It was a hugely successful Open and has been widely acknowledged as such across the world. We received numerous compliments on the efficiency and accuracy of the TeamCard access control solutions from the R&A officials, the operational staff and the spectators. The event experienced record crowds who were unanimous on the excellence of their customer journey.
The information and live reporting were very well received, as was the statistical legacy information that will be used to evaluate and improve everything from car parking through to hospitality.
We are looking forward to our involvement in the next four Open Championships (at least) and hope we can improve on each one of them, adding even more functionality to enhance the biggest event in golf.
