SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS' STADIUM IMPLEMENTS CALL REPORTING
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – June 23, 2009-- Metropolis, a leading provider of telemanagement solutions to businesses, is pleased to announce that the San Francisco Giants has implemented OfficeWatch for Business at their home base, AT&T Park in San Francisco, California, as well as their major and minor league spring training facilities in Scottsdale, Arizona (Scottsdale Stadium and Indian School Park, respectively). By interfacing with the facilities’ ShoreTel phone system, OfficeWatch monitors incoming and outgoing phone call traffic from all three sites, seamlessly centralizing all telephone traffic data into one location and allowing users to obtain their own telephone usage reports across all of the sites. Additionally, OfficeWatch tracks the users’ unique individual extensions, regardless of the location to which they have traveled. The stadiums also selected OfficeWatch due to its ability to bill visiting teams and events for telephone usage at the venues, allowing them to quickly recoup the costs related to their telephone system.
AT&T Park , home of the San Francisco Giants, is known for its breathtaking views and was chosen as the 2008 Sports Facility of the Year by Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily as part of the inaugural Sports Business Awards program. AT&T Park was the first privately financed ballpark in Major League Baseball since 1962. For their major league spring training, the Giants have been at Scottsdale Stadium in Scottsdale, Arizona since 1992. Scottsdale Stadium features 8,500 fixed seats with room for 2,000 on outfield berms and underwent a $23.1 million renovation in 2006. In return, the San Francisco Giants agreed to play at the stadium for an additional 20 years, through 2025, with an option to extend the lease to 2035. The Giants’ minor league team also trains in Scottsdale at the Indian School Park minor-league complex, a 60-acre park that doubles as a multi-sports complex and public park facility.
Metropolis has been a provider of telemanagement software for sports teams, entertainment venues and businesses since 1993, with several thousand installations throughout the United States and North America. Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Metropolis provides OfficeWatch for Business and ProfitWatch for Hotels directly to end-users and select resellers globally.
