Guest Satisfaction Initiative Includes 75 Instant Feedback Terminals, Arrives in Conjunction with Extensive Multi-Year Transformation of the Arena
Fans will be able to provide instant experience feedback through the innovative HappyOrNot Smiley Terminals to be installed for the 2018-19 season at Wells Fargo Center. The Wells Fargo Center is set to become the first NBA/NHL arena in the country to install the HappyOrNot customer feedback devices and reporting.
The near real-time feedback terminals allow fans to communicate their level of satisfaction with restrooms and concessions at Wells Fargo Center with the push of a smiley face button. 75 fan feedback terminals will be installed on all major concourses throughout the arena.
“We are listening to our fans,” said Mike Scanlon, Wells Fargo Center SVP and General Manager. “We want our fans to have a positive experience when they come out to support their hometown teams. HappyOrNot is going to allow us to anticipate and respond to guests’ needs to maximize the quality of their experiences while attending events at the Wells Fargo Center.”
The Wells Fargo Center is the first NBA/NHL arena in the country to roll out this new guest experience initiative. The HappyOrNot kiosks capture on average 20% of entire footfall instantly and anonymously. Real-time updates and alerts are sent through the HappyOrNot app, which allows Wells Fargo Center staff to react to issues immediately during an event.
“We are pleased to be partnering with the Wells Fargo Center in their efforts to enhance overall Fan experience” shares Brad Winney, President and GM, HappyOrNot Americas. “With instant customer feedback and real-time alerts, the staff can pinpoint and address service performance issues immediately, avoiding escalation, keeping fans happy and coming back.”
HappyOrNot was founded by Heikki Väänänen and Ville Levaniemi, and has more than 4,000 clients in 117 countries. Its clients include Microsoft, McDonald’s, London’s Heathrow Airport and Levi’s Stadium. HappyOrNot is considered the global leader in instant customer and employee satisfaction reporting. Companies are able to improve their customer experience, relationships and fan engagement using the data collected from the terminals.

- Multifunctional, open-concept concourses featuring views of Philadelphia’s skyline
