Located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, the Over Under Sports Bar is a new sports bar dedicated to fueling the passion of the online sports betting app enthusiast. Featuring over 40 sports viewing and wagering information screens, it relies on making the space enjoyable for patrons and easy to operate for its staff. To fuel success, the ownership at Over Under Sports Bar enlisted Abt, a large, independently owned, single-location retailer of electronics, appliances and home goods. Using a basic IR system, Abt’s commercial team used Harrison, N.Y.-based URC’s Total Control to create a reliable, easy-to-deploy system.
