Phillies to Test Ordering Beer and Water Using Apple Business Chat

Michael Klein, writing for Philly Insider:

Specifically, the concessionaire is testing the use of Apple Business Chat to allow iPhone-equipped fans in certain sections of the ballpark to order water and beer from their seats. The arrangement does not require a special app, as previous seat-delivery concepts have done. […]

To order, a fan would first open the iPhone camera app and scan the QR code on the seat back. That will launch prompts on the iMessage text screen to place the order, which is then completed with Apple Pay. The drink will be delivered supposedly shortly after.

Neat idea. The video shows a bit of the actual user interface.
