S-32 ACCESS CONTROL TRENDS AND TECHNOLOGY 2018 JULY/AUGUST U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota is a 66,200-person venue, hosting regular football games for the NFL and NCAA as well as baseball and soccer games, concerts, weddings, and many other events. Approximately 3,500 people make up the staff on a game day or during a major event. These conces- sion workers, cleaning personnel, police, guest experience team, secu- rity officers and supervisors, opera- tions managers and more are on site to deliver not only a safe and secure event but also a memorable experi- ence for all guests in the stadium.

When looking to upgrade their internal access con- trol systems to provide the security and efficiency they required at such a large facility, U.S. Bank Stadium while working with Hoffman Security Solutions, chose Morse Watchmans' KeyBank system for cost-effective, highly capable key management throughout their facility. U.S. Bank Stadium while working with Hoffman Security Solutions, chose Morse Watchmans' KeyBank system for cost-effective, highly capable key management throughout their facility. "There were a few different auto- mated key control systems we looked at," said Billy Langenstein, Director Event Services, U.S. Bank Stadium. "But when it came down to not only the financials but also the capabilities, reporting, and infrastructure that Morse Watchmans KeyBank has, I personally believe there's nothing comparable on the market that amounts to how we wanted to use the system here at the stadium. This is the first time I've used this system in my career, and if I have the opportunity to open up another stadium, Morse Watchmans will be installed there as well."
