“NCR’s solutions put Mercedes-Benz Stadium at the forefront of venue technology by providing amazing flexibility, control and connectivity,” said Jared Miller, chief digital officer and senior vice president, analytics and technology, AMBSE. “By partnering with NCR, we will ensure our fans and guests will have an unparalleled interactive and engaging experience, helping to make Mercedes-Benz stadium the marquee sports and entertainment venue globally.”

“Today’s fans expect easy-to-use, reliable technology that increases the speed of service and enhances their in-stadium experience. With Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, we delivered on this,” said Don Zimmerman, general manger & vice president Hospitality, NCR Corporation. “NCR is helping AMBSE to reinvent the fan experience, while allowing fans to stay closer to what’s happening on the field.”

Supporting the local community
As part of a unique partnership with AMBSE, the NCR Foundation will continue to support local nonprofits in the Westside neighborhoods surrounding the stadium, including The Boys & Girls Club and The Hollis Innovation Academy. By organizing volunteer events, NCR will help nonprofits build capacity and strengthen capabilities to better serve the Westside communities.
