November 2021 Industry News
The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) selected Alcatraz AI to outfit its home, the Banc of California Stadium, with touchless, badgeless building access for all staff. Alcatraz’s facial authentication technology offers an access control setup that is more hygienic, reducing the number of touchpoints while also streamlining building access protocols. The stadium and club returned to on-site operations, and health and safety remains a significant focus. The LAFC deployed Alcatraz’s technology in all LAFC facilities, helping the club to resume on-site operations. Operations leaders can use the touchless entry system to track access points and assist in contact tracing programs, increasing facility security and user convenience.
