Verizon 5G powers new cashierless shopping experience at Lincoln Financial Field

Verizon Business and the Philadelphia Eagles have officially launched two ‘On the Fly’ express shops at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, powered by Verizon 5G technology.

Located on both the main concourse and in Pepsi Plaza, the stores use Verizon’s network and AI-powered computer vision technology to provide fans with a more seamless way to purchase food and drinks without a cashier, according to the company.

The ‘On the Fly’ express shops solution brings together the expertise of Verizon Business, a communication and technology solutions provider, and the Philadelphia Eagles, an NFL franchise. These express shops are designed to provide fans with a blend of convenience, speed, and connectivity.

“When it comes to the customer journey, just like with sports, every second counts,” says Jonathan Nikols, senior vice president of global enterprise, Americas, at Verizon Business.

“Connectivity is key to ensuring fans are able to get the most out of every encounter. With the launch of these automated checkouts, the Philadelphia Eagles are demonstrating the true power of Verizon 5G and edge computing, by creating smarter spaces that reduce transaction times and streamline the shopping experience.”

Verizon 5G, the fifth-generation wireless technology, plays a role in powering these express shops, with the aim of ensuring internet speeds and a seamless connection for fans.

The collaboration extends beyond just connectivity as the company notes it reflects a commitment to innovation and enhancing fan engagement. The ‘On the Fly’ Express Shops leverages Verizon Business’ solution in creating connected experiences, offering fans the ability to stay connected with their favorite team while enjoying the game in real time.

“We always strive to offer a best-in-class experience at Lincoln Financial Field,” says Brian Napoli, senior vice president of corporate partnerships at Philadelphia Eagles.

“Leveraging Verizon’s industry-leading technology and communication services to build out the new ‘On the Fly’ Express Shops will create a more seamless and efficient shopping experience at the stadium.”

The ‘On the Fly’ contactless, autonomous shops combine off-the-shelf cameras, computer vision and artificial intelligence. Powered by 5G, the cashierless check-out retail environment provides insights into shopper behavior and supply chain management to benefit shoppers and store operators, the company notes.
