When the concessions vendor who handles Arrowhead's Club Level concession stands decided to go with digital menus, replacing the old manual and static menu boards, they went with Keywest Technology's Breeze Dynamic Menu solution. Keywest Technology turned to AVIES for this complex project consisting of more than 40 menu boards. The first hurdle to overcome for AVIES was designing a mounting structure in an area above the concession stands that had no previous structure capable of supporting 400 pounds of displays safely overhead.
AVIES accomplished that goal ahead of schedule and under budget by creating custom steel grid structures anchored to the stadium concrete, each one capable of holding 10X the weight needed.
AVIES then installed each bank of menu boards with enough precision to virtually hide all the mounting hardware that has to exist below the ceiling line, giving the menus the appearance of floating over the concession stand work areas. The vendor now has the capability to modify the menu on the fly. For example, if they sell out of a particular food or beverage item, they can instantly remove it from the menu. In addition, if the vendor needs to clear out an overstock item before the end of an event, they can simply adjust prices on the fly and change featured product graphics and videos from anywhere in the world. Keywest Technology software can also tie into Point-of-Sale (POS) applications which will allow for automatic menu management based on real-time inventory.
AVIES completed this installation working only during normal business hours, during weekdays, and still had the displays up and running ahead of the original schedule.
