In a ceremony last Friday, the Atlanta Braves were named a winner of the 2014 Excalibur Awards by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) for their use of the customizable in-venue features in the MLB.com At the Ballpark® mobile app. The Excalibur Awards celebrate Georgia companies that demonstrate the best use of technology to solve complex business problems.
The Braves and MLBAM partnered with Atlanta-based Experience to feature customizable Turner Field functionality within the MLB.com At the Ballpark ® app. The free app, available for fans attending games at Turner Field, allows fans exclusive mobile opportunities including seat upgrades as well as personalized experiences, like in-seat merchandise deliveries. TAG recognized the Braves and MLB.com At the Ballpark® for its ability to leverage technology to enhance fans' in-game experiences.
The Braves were selected from more than 90 applications submitted by companies and organizations across Georgia. The Braves won the mid-sized companies category and were one of five organizations to be honored by TAG.
