Their Story

The Richmond Olympic Oval is Western Canada’s premiere high-performance sports and wellness center. The 362,000 sq. ft. waterfront facility has served over 5 millions guests, from health-oriented families to aspiring Olympic prospects mentored by world class coaches.

Improve the customer experience while reducing employee workload.

The Oval’s cutting edge facility was hampered by software that inconvenienced members and staff. Their goal was to seamlessly blend newer technology with human interaction, so they could continue to grow their facility on pace with their potential.

We are no longer afraid of being left behind. Because the features continue to roll out... [Xplor Recreation] gives us the time to focus on our passion and develop cutting-edge programs and exceptional service for our clients.
