Over the past months, Outbox has worked tirelessly to develop new solutions to help its clients return to live entertainment. From launching a timed-entry solution, a social distancing sales tool and a live streaming platform, we are proud to now offer new access control solutions.
These new access control solutions will allow venues to read body temperature and scan tickets upon venue entry. Scanners will first get an instant reading of the customers body temperature and the validate barcode. A safe and quick process.
Two new devices solutions:
To allow all venues and promoters to take advantage of this new feature, we have developed two solutions to meet our client’s needs and expectations.
Integrated Thermal Scanner: This new scanner will replace the current Event N3 access control readers with a new handheld device which will incorporate a thermal temperature reader and a ticket scanner. The combined results will determine who is allowed to enter the venue. The data collected through these scanners will be stored on the Outbox ticketing platform providing venue with real-time reporting on venue entry and safety.
Wireless Bluetooth Scanner: This wireless body temperature reader will work in synch with the current Event N3 ticket scanners. This thermal body temperature reader will provide data as accurate as our integrated scanners solution yet at a lower cost. Here as well, the data collected from both devices will immediately be stored on the Outbox ticketing platform providing venues with real-time reporting on venue entry and safety.
Data and reports:
While the body temperature will not be saved for confidentiality reasons, the temperature-based approval results and the time of entry will be stored in the customer record. By doing so, venue and promoters will be able to refer to this data at any time to validate that all recommended safety measures were applied.

The Alouettes have joined forces with another Montreal favourite – Outbox – to make an offensive play in their customer ticketing platform.
Outbox, a major Alouettes fan and experienced player in the field with a strong track record, is proud to welcome this Canadian football team to its ranks. Together they’ll fill the 25,012 seats at Percival Molson Stadium; the Alouettes’ legendary arena for more than 30 years.
In February of this year, the Alouettes also launched a new identity to reignite their die-hard brand, calling themselves les “MontréALS”. This moniker symbolizes the deep-rooted sense of belonging the Alouettes have for their beloved city, which has been a quarterback for their success.
The MontréALS’ new slogan: “Always Game” simultaneously epitomizes the state of mind of this Montreal team. Sun, rain, sleet or snow… they’re always up for anything, as long as it takes them all the way to the legendary Grey Cup. And now Outbox is also “Always Game” to play their part in getting them there.
MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday that it will henceforth use Montreal-based platform Outbox for the managing and selling of tickets during the 2019 season.

The new IMFC Portal (online account manager) will be more dynamic, while adapting to tablets and mobile phones. It will also allow Members to transfer tickets, and even pay an invoice by taking advantage of the payment plans available.
