Nextiva, the leading conversation platform, today announced its partnership with Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E), the premier provider of sports and entertainment in South Texas. SS&E owns and operates the San Antonio Spurs (NBA), Austin Spurs (NBA G League), and San Antonio FC (USL).
The partnership between Nextiva and SS&E is founded on a mutual passion for creating amazing experiences for customers and fans. Nextiva’s business communications technology will power the fan experience SS&E provides through its phone and contact center service.
“Going to a San Antonio Spurs, Austin Spurs or San Antonio FC game is more than just watching a sport. It’s a rich experience rooted in community and connection,” says Tracy Conrad, Nextiva’s Co-founder and Chief Amazing Officer. “The teams want to give their all for the fans, and the fans are right there supporting and celebrating at every moment of the journey. Nextiva is proud to become part of SS&E’s winning story and play a role in these meaningful experiences.”
“We’re excited to tap into Nextiva’s long-standing record of helping businesses thrive with innovative, customer-centric communications technology,” says Joe Loomis, SVP Finance, Technology & Culinary Operations. “Working with Nextiva was a no-brainer for us, as we’re dedicated to providing the best brand experiences for our fans, players, and business partners.”
