Moonee Valley Racing Club
Established in 1883, Moonee Valley Racing Club (MRVC) is the historical home of Australia’s most prestigious horse race — the Cox Plate. As one of the most progressive racing clubs in Australia when it comes to customer satisfaction and race day services, MVRC identified the need to improve patron satisfaction at race events. Each event saw the increased use of smartphones and tablets by patrons, making it challenging for users to be able to communicate through the 3G network, given the high volume of traffic concentrated in one location. This meant that patrons had less than an optimal experience using online services such as social media, betting services and, often, their email tools to communicate with friends — certainly not acceptable to the younger generation.
