Italian Serie A side, AS Roma, has increased its conversion rate in online ticketing thanks to an innovative VR Solution, which has delivered a drastic rise in web traffic, and in consequence, the number of sales that are being made through the renovated virtual channel.
The increasingly fast evolution of technology and consumer demand is causing all sectors to adapt at a similar pace. The football sector, one of the most capital-intensive and socially impactful, is no exception. The many factors surrounding it, means it is forced to make this adaptation even faster, and this technology ultimately has the ability to offer fans an unforgettable experience.
AS Roma faced a series of problems that made the buying process difficult and undermined the fan experience; with a shopping experience that was focused on the Roman fan, without taking into account the millions of tourists who visit the Italian capital each year.
For this group, it is naturally more difficult to understand the nature of the venue, and the solutions used at the time did not contribute to a correct understanding of the environment. One of the most relevant problems faced when reversing this situation was the existence of too many pricing areas, which made it difficult for the fan to make a decision due to the excessive variants. The objective was to get people interested in buying a ticket and to do so with as fewer clicks as possible, to significantly increase the purchase conversion rate.
For the design of the new solution, it was important to take into account that the mobile channel meant a huge number of transactions, so it was crucial to reach a responsive solution to offer the best of experiences to the users. To ensure the highest level of consumer satisfaction, AS Roma decided to include 3D Digital Venue and VivaTicket as part of the final solution.
The integration of the 3DDIGITALVENUE PLATFORM solution offered by 3D Digital Venue, has enabled fans to check interactive 3D 360-degree views from all seats in Stadio Olimpico before purchasing their tickets. Being able to select the seat, with the view of their choice, all at the click of a button, would play a key role in boosting the fan experience and fan loyalty, and also empower the comprehension of the stadium.
3D Digital Venue has been working tirelessly for years now to make sure their robust technology makes this task of virtualisation much easier than what it appears to be. AS Roma also partnered with VivaTicket in order to jointly re-design the new e-commerce, offering a simple and intuitive experience for the users, with the objective of making the whole buying process in only 5 clicks.
After the new check-out was launched, AS Roma drastically augmented its conversion rate. The integration of the VR solution has also led to a rise in web traffic, and in consequence, the number of sales that were made through the renovated virtual channel. This has been a huge step forward for the club, not least as it has been able to decongest the offices and accelerate ticket sales in an online environment. The rise of the on-line purchasing has been particularly useful in terms of capturing metrics to better understand the behaviour of the users. This kind of data is extremely important in these types of projects to evaluate the impact of the new solution.
