Bypass is a ground-breaking technology that allows fans to order and pay for food, drinks and more on their Smartphones. Fans can use Bypass by downloading the mobile app (available on iPhone, Android and Blackberry) or navigating to www.bypasslane.com on their Smartphone’s (Android, Blackberry OS6, Dell mobile devices, iPhone, Palm mobile devices among others). Bypass is also integrated within the IronPigs’ iPhone and Android-based applications developed by Critical Technologies Group (http://www.ctgweb.biz).
Through Bypass, fans are given the opportunity to view full food and drink menus of select concessions stands in the vicinity of their seats and are able to place orders by paying with a credit card using Bypass' secure payment platform. When the order is ready for pickup, a text message is sent to the fan from the nearest Bypass Lane. Fans can then avoid the line by using the exclusive Bypass Lane at the designated pick-up areas located at the concession stands.
“We, as an organization, are constantly seeking new ways to improve the overall experience of attending an IronPigs game at Coca-Cola Park,” remarked IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes. “The Bypass Lane is so easy and so convenient that we believe it will be a true game-changer for our fans.”
Added Bypass President Brandon Lloyd: “We are excited to introduce Bypass to the most popular baseball and entertainment venue in Minor League Baseball. We share a common goal with Coca-Cola Park and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs to continuously enhance the fan experience.”
Bypass has been extremely popular during the first two months of the season, with over one thousand orders having already been placed. Recently, the IronPigs add a brand-new Field Level Bypass Lane to deal with the demand. In total, there are five Bypass Lanes (four on the Field Level and one on the Club Level) at Coca-Cola Park. There is a 99-cent convenience fee levied to each order.
