LOS ANGELES, Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Versus Systems Inc. (“Versus” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: VS) today announced that Versus recently completed a successful activation for Finastra, a global provider of financial software applications and marketplaces, marking the first XEO platform activation in the Corporate Meeting and Events segment. With this activation, Versus was able to leverage its deep experience with sports-based fan engagement to expand the market for Versus’ leading audience engagement technology to a wider pool of potential clients. Considering the positive response of the Finastra event’s attendees to the XEO platform, Versus anticipates it will be able to expand its activations in the Corporate Meeting and Events segment in the future.
Finastra engaged Versus to power audience engagement for its recent Global Sales Kick-Off in Miami, FL. Versus activated its on-demand XEO-based gaming platform for the two-day event, encouraging a friendly competition between event attendees. Audience adoption and use was particularly strong, with over one-third of the event’s attendees playing one of the eight games that were available to play. Games available during the Finastra event included the Swish basketball game, Turbo Trivia, and the Free Kick soccer game.
“We were thrilled to work with Finastra to bring our expertise in audience engagement to their recent Global Sales Kick-off,” said Matthew Pierce, CEO of Versus Systems. “The audience response to our XEO gaming platform was remarkable and is a fantastic use case for our technology. The Corporate Meeting and Events industry is a significant opportunity for Versus to use our XEO platform to delight and engage corporate event attendees all over the world.”
“The XEO Platform from Versus was a great way to keep our employees engaged during our recent event,” said Jake Mecimore, Manager, Digital Events Marketing at Finastra. “We saw a positive response to the XEO games and look forward to working with Versus to integrate their technology into our future company events.”
