Why ThunderTix is the best alternative to Vendini

ThunderTix -- the best alternative to Vendini (AudienceView)

In August of 2020, Vendini announced that they are closing and transferring all organizations to AudienceView under new 5-year contracts. There is no better time to consider alternatives for your box office software. Why is ThunderTix the best alternative to Vendini?

  • Receive money quickly with same day deposit of all ticket revenue as sales are made -- even season pass sales
  • Help clients feel safe to return with automated social distancing applied as seats are purchased
  • Grow donations with our complete fundraising tools
  • Convenient access to all data in one CRM -- fully integrated patron and donor database
  • Feel confident with the free transfer of all patron data and order and donation histories
  • Save time with private access to reports for venue rentals
  • Save money during this very difficult time with the lowest pricing in the industry

With COVID affecting event cancelations worldwide, it's a good time to explore an alternative to Vendini. With ThunderTix, we prepare for the reopening of your theatre starting with automatically applied social distance seating. We'll also import your customers and constituents along with their purchasing and giving histories. When sales begin, all your revenue is transferred through your gateway directly to your bank. This is extremely important in a time of high cancelations, as other services may hold your revenue indefinitely until after an event takes place. When looking for an alternative to Vendini, look no further!

Created for the performing arts

With all the tools needed for email marketing, fundraising, gift cards, and more, you have all data in a single platform at a price non-profits love. Our reserved seating applies cutting-edge technology to manage social distancing automatically. The moment an order is processed, we'll block seats around them to ensure safe bubbles of space between guests. Of course, we offer full subscription management with season passes, flex passes, and "pick-any" flexible event options.

To aid in this challenging time, we've incorporated virtual event integration for hybrid events, and our $10/monthly option allows you to collect donations and sell gift cards while events are in limbo.

Save time with easy venue rental management

For venue rentals, we offer a customized user created specifically for outside organizations that are renting your space. These event-restricted users can access your account seeing only their own events. Event restricted users ease the burden from the box office by giving them direct access to not only see their events but manage them. No longer will the box office have to research multiple requests about how that organization's event is selling or requests to see the guest list. If they're curious about sales, they can simply log in at any time to pull the reports they want.

Patron Database

With ThunderTix, we'll track all customers that purchase tickets, patrons that make donations, and anyone that interacts with your organization by buying merchandise or gift cards. Included with ThunderTix service, we'll import your entire customer and donor lists into your ThunderTix CRM at no charge. In addition, we also provide a full import of all past orders and donations from Vendini when you activate your account.

Marketing Tools

ThunderTix provides multiple options for communicating with patrons. First, we offer integration with MailChimp and Constant Contact allowing you to have patrons automatically subscribed to your preferred audiences/lists as purchases are made. In addition, we have our own built-in email marketing tools to be able to quickly and efficiently email attendees of an upcoming performance, an upcoming production, your full email list, donors, or any targeted marketing segment you filter using the CRM.

Affordability when you need it

With Vendini, patrons usually paid $2.50 per ticket over the cost of the ticket price when buying from home. At times, the price was negotiated down to $1.85 or $2 per ticket. Whether patrons paid the ticket fee on top of the ticket cost or if the venue absorbed it, the cost was the same.

ThunderTix charges an average of $0.79 cents per ticket directly to the organization. Then we give you complete control over fees including the ability to add your own and keep 100% of the earnings collected. Consider keeping the same fee patrons have been paying with Vendini. If you add the same $2.50 per ticket and your cost with ThunderTix is only $0.79, then you have $1.21 per ticket from that fee alone to reinvest into your organization.

This is a win-win-win scenario: your patrons pay less, you retain more, and you completely defray the cost of ThunderTix.
