Cuseum Receives U.S. Patent for New Contactless Venue Admission Technology

Latest patent expands the company's intellectual property portfolio of innovative mobile technology.

Cuseum announced today the issuance of United States Patent No. 10,827,353 related to a new system for contactless venue admission. This latest patent represents the company's dedication to delivering pioneering solutions that offer convenience and efficiency, as well as respond to the new challenges and demands faced by venues due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Across numerous sectors, we are witnessing the widespread expansion of contactless technology, a transition that has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Offering seamless, cutting-edge experiences is now essential to engaging customers and visitors in the cultural sector," said Brendan Ciecko, CEO and Founder of Cuseum. "To empower cultural attractions, museums, and venues to meet these shifting consumer expectations, we focused our R&D efforts on creating a new type of entry and admission experience."

Cuseum has been a leader in the mobile engagement space for over six years, offering a suite of software tools that help cultural organizations better engage their visitors, members, and donors. The company is committed to enabling the cultural sector to thrive in the digital era and, more recently, navigate the rapid digital transformation ushered in by the COVID-19 crisis. 

The company's latest invention is part of an interdisciplinary strategy to serve the cultural sector through resources, content, and modern tools. This new solution encompasses the full meaning of "contactless," ensuring an entry process that isn't dependent on barcode scanning, facial recognition, or other methods. The new method has broad commercial applications across a variety of sectors, including public attractions, retail, travel, and sports.

"In 2020 and beyond, contactless experiences will play an increasingly important role in our everyday lives. We're thrilled to help cultural attractions and venues of all kinds offer a safer and more seamless admissions process to their visitors," added Ciecko.

This patent is the sixth in a series of mobile technology patents granted to the company and further attests to the world-class quality of innovation being produced by Cuseum.
