March 2018, QWASI activated basketball’s favorite NCAA tournament, the ACC Basketball Tournament featuring Duke, UNC, Boston College, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Wake Forest, Miami, NC State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, UVA, Louisville, Clemson, Florida, and Georgia Tech University.

“We wanted to show off the power of mobile technology when paired with the state of the art Cisco infrastructure,” Leon Samuel, QWASI CEO.

Ahead of arriving to Barclay’s for the ACC basketball tournament fans were given the opportunity to signup for VIP experiences which kicked off by sending them a personalized “welcome” message when they arrived at the arena, sharing seat information and pregame notes on their favorite team.

Once inside their VIP suite, fans could tap on memorabilia to answer trivia, video chat with personal shoppers at the Barclays Store to order merchandise, and text to get assistance from knowledgeable support teams.
