BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- PXT Payments, provider of looped in, an electronic mobile payment system (watch the video), has partnered with Boston College Athletics and integrated its mobile payments system in Conte Forum, the venue for all Boston College basketball and hockey games. The venture squares off by offering money rewards for students, alumni, and sports fans at large at Conte Forum. The rewards can be used at the arena or around town at participating restaurants and stores.
"Having a full mobile payment system integrated into Conte Forum raises the bar for the user experience for a fast and easy alternative way to pay from a fan's mobile device," said Jamie DiLoreto, Associate Athletics Director of Athletics at Boston College. "We are pleased to enhance the partnership between BC Athletics and looped in and look forward to promoting the exciting incentive offer they are rolling out to fans."
looped in is integrated into Conte Forum's point-of-sale (POS) system, QuestVenueManager, so using the app is simple. When standing in line, fans will use their mobile number to pay instead of handing over a credit card. Then they simply key in a secure looped in PIN on their smartphones, and instantly receive a digital receipt. All Spring Semester, users will also receive instant money: The first time they load $10, they'll see a free $5 added to their balance, and the $5 load reward is given once a month after that. Every time users spend $5, they get another $2 free, instantly. The balance on the app home screen will immediately add the money rewards.
Some students at BC, and their parents, already think looped in is perfect for college students.
"I like paying with looped in because there are no security risks," said Emily Zlevor, a sophomore at Boston College. "When placing food orders over the phone, giving a restaurant my 10-digit phone number is easier, more convenient and safer than giving the restaurant my 16-digit debit card number."
looped in's full mobile payment system also appeals to Zlevor's mother, who especially likes the free friend-to-friend money transfer feature. "I can send Emily money safely through my looped in account by simply entering her phone number into the app," said Anne Zlevor. "It's the easiest system and most convenient way to electronically move funds."
Green, fast, and fun, the app ups the ante for the mobile pay user experience, as well as for universities implementing the system. "PXT Payments has been a valued marketing partner of Boston College Athletics over the past year," said Matt Murrey, vice president of marketing partnerships at Fenway Sports Management. "We are excited that Boston College has integrated the looped in mobile payments application in Conte Forum so BC basketball and hockey fans can now take advantage of this new technology when purchasing food and beverages at concession stands."
Fans at Conte Forum can also test out the app's group purchasing feature. Friends waiting in line together at a concession stand can send money for the food they want to one person's looped in account with the Friend to Friend free money send feature. By the time it's their turn, the one friend can pay for the whole order at once, getting them all back to their seats faster.
"There are many ways any school can use a mobile payment system, and all schools are different," said John Regan, CEO of PXT Payments. "We are excited to see which features become favorites at Boston College, and to help the college tailor the payment system to suit its campus culture."

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
