Spotz, a fast-growing subscription-based software company that helps hosts manage and promote multiple reservable spaces, has announced a new partnership with the City of Westfield, Indiana’s Grand Park Sport Complex.
This partnership will help Grand Park create a more seamless experience for those looking to book event space. Spotz will be able to showcase its software to many of the 2.5 million visitors to Grand Park’s campus annually. Together, Spotz and Grand Park will collaborate to fine tune the most important features to enhance the overall host management and booking experience within Spotz.
“Grand Park is the largest sports complex of its kind in the country,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “There is no better place for ideas, technologies and research opportunities around sport to be originated, vetted and eventually launched into the marketplace.”
“Spotz allows us to think out of the box and work with a company that has the skill and knowledge to help us solve some of our current-day challenges. By creating a more user-friendly event booking process we expect to book more events, resulting in more space and hours booked at our venue. This will result in more visitors to the community which will positively impact the local businesses, said William Knox, Grand Park Director.
The Research & Development HUB will work with innovators within the sports industry who are looking to develop new technologies, challenge the status quo, or quantify theories by capitalizing on the campus’ cultural landscape and dense influx of patrons.
“The mission at Spotz is to help create better awareness and accessibility to the spaces that bring us joy,” said James Jackson, the founder and chief executive officer for Spotz. “The Grand Park Sports Campus is filled with amazing spaces and opportunities for people to use – and our goal is to make that as easy as possible to reserve and manage online. This partnership allows us to work alongside a great host in Grand Park and those diverse groups of people enjoying their facilities to further enhance our software with the features that matter most.”
The benefits of this new partnership include:
- Developing best-in-class host features that are aligned with end-user needs
- Greater accessibility for end users to find and book the spaces they want
- Higher usage rates of facilities driving direct economic impact
The facilities at Grand Park will start using Spotz for public booking by later this summer.
