  • University of South Florida Tampa (Sun Dome)

IMG facilitated the three-year partnership between Frontier Communications, a leading national provider of high-speed-internet, phone & TV, and Brightbox. Frontier’s branded Brightbox charging stations will now be in numerous college football and basketball facilities encouraging customers to “Charge While You Cheer.”

“We are thrilled to support these great institutions of higher learning and meet the mobile power needs of their fans and students,” said Billy Gridley, CEO of Brightbox. “In a world where nearly everyone is always on-line, particularly students using mobile devices as a “second screen”, and there is no off-line, Brightbox secure charging is critical physical infrastructure and in-stadium technology that fulfills customer need, while providing global organizations with a powerful branding and marketing tool.”

Brightbox is unique because it offers organizations and marketers a trifecta solution: secure mobile re-charging, digital signage and interactive features, such as data surveys, SMS messaging and product coupon delivery. Unlike other providers in the market, the Brightbox platform is open for management of a network of connected, out-of-home charging kiosks. Partners and clients can access the Brightbox platform to directly manage their own video content and messaging, download reporting data and analytics, remotely support their fleet, and conduct marketing and lead capture campaigns.

As the global technology leader in the field, Brightbox offers a breadth of locker key choices: secure masked on-screen pin code, mag stripe cards (financial, customized and loyalty) and RFID. Brightbox was the first secure charging solution on the market to offer USB-C charging support for the latest generation of smartphones. Brightbox is committed to delivering secure, safe and reliable power for mobile users when they need it most, with a hardened LINUX-based connected platform solution and kiosk product offerings that are the most innovative and sophisticated in the marketplace.
