Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose fans and patrons of Bell MTS Place events now have a new virtual guest assistant to help answer any questions they may have to augment their experience before, during or after True North Sports + Entertainment events. The feature is live on winnipegjets.com, moosehockey.com, Bellmtsplace.ca and in the Winnipeg Jets Mobile App, and will be coming soon to the Jets and Bell MTS Place Facebook Messenger pages.
True North's virtual guest services assistant will navigate patron inquiries in real time, on a number of topics related to the Jets and Moose, as well as to non-hockey event experiences at Bell MTS Place, ranging from ticketing and parking to services and amenities.
"The ability to instantly connect with and be responsive to our guests 24/7 is the next step for True North in enhancing guests' experiences with our teams as well as at our events and venues," said Andrew Wilkinson, Director of Digital for True North. "With a full calendar of events and growing information about our teams and Bell MTS Place, our virtual assistant provides a single point of contact that makes it easy and convenient for fans and patrons to engage with the Jets, Moose and Bell MTS Place, as well as to receive timely and consistent information."
