Libertadores and Sudamericana finals: Technology for giants
Leader in providing technologies for clubs, arenas and football stadiums in Latin America, Imply® was present at the main South American football events this year: the 2022 Copa Sudamericana Final and the 2022 Copa Libertadores Final.
On October 1st, São Paulo Futebol Clube (Brazil) played for the Copa Sudamericana title against Independiente del Valle (Ecuador), at the Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium in Córdoba, Argentina. It was the 21st edition of the competition, which is organized annually by the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL). 56 clubs from the ten South American football associations participated in the competition and the Ecuadorian club was the winner of the championship for the second time.
On October 29, it was the turn of Clube de Regatas do Flamengo (Brazil) and Club Athletico Paranaense (Brazil) to compete for the Libertadores cup. This was the 63rd edition of Libertadores, the biggest football club competition in Latin America, organized by CONMEBOL. The grand final was played at the Monumental Stadium in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Flamengo won the 2022 Libertadores, being the club’s third continental title.
Imply® was chosen by CONMEBOL, in both finals, to develop and operate the integrated channels for ticket sales, stadium access control and matchday operation, through the powerful Imply® Eleven360 Platform, with Eleven Tickets, Eleven Access and Eleven Staff high-performance solutions.
“It is a great responsibility to provide a high-performance solution integrated with multiple ticket sales channels, customer service, anti-fraud, payments, access control, dedicated staff, matchday operation and all necessary configurations for each event and for each stadium. When the event has a state proportion, the responsibility is great. And if it is a national event, the requirements are even greater. Now, imagine for an international event, where the solution provider needs to be prepared to meet the legislation of each country involved, platform integrations to accept different types of currencies, logistics to make hardware and supplies available, time zones, and much more. Imply® works in any of these environments” highlights Tironi Paz Ortiz, Imply® CEO”.
The key to managing events with high volumes of traffic is to offer systems that simplify operations, have quick access to data and optimize the flow of people. For this to be possible, it is important that all technology solutions are in one place: Imply® develops all-in-one technologies to create continuous innovation of experiences.
Totally White Label, the solution is customized according to the needs of each project, aiming to integrate the different relationship tools between the brand and its customers, without intermediaries. Eleven360 Imply® solutions generate innovation, technological evolution and digital transformation for major brands.
“Our commitment is to deliver excellent services not only to the event organizer but also to the end user. For over 15 years, Imply® has been providing 360 Solutions to serve several Football Clubs in Brazil and abroad, in addition to Stadiums, Arenas, Federations, Events and Attractions. All this is possible thanks to a qualified, talented team committed to Imply® DNA!” Concludes Tironi Paz Ortiz.
