Moving IT infrastructure to the cloud with CodeBlue has opened up global markets for Hamilton-based Stream Event Access Management – the company responsible for the Mystery Creek Field Days ticketing system.
Stream's ticketing and access management system was purpose-developed to handle the New Zealand National Fieldays (Mystery Creek Field Days) event – the largest single agribusiness event in the Southern Hemisphere. The event attracts over 100,000 visitors and generates an estimated $6 million annually for the Waikato regional economy.
Stream’s business development manager Sharon Roux says the state-of-the-art software developed and evolved to handle the Mystery Creek Field Days event is the fruit of hard experience. In the early days queues stretched for 400 metres at each gate, with delays of an hour to gain entry. Today, the system can process 70 people a minute and six a second across all entry gates, delivering fast, secure access while maintaining customer satisfaction and security.
However, the system had been restricted by its IT infrastructure to handling local events in the Waikato – until now.
CodeBlue Hamilton managing director Jason Trower says moving to the cloud with CodeBlue has opened up new ‘go to market’ models for Stream.
"Stream is a great example of how cloud computing can have a transformational effect on business by providing a relatively simple, relatively low cost technology to enable local businesses to reach both national and international event management customers."
