Advantages of Online Ticketing

A Complete Event Management System

A red box containing tickets and a globe for online ticketing Before the advent of online ticketing venues had to rely on "outlet presence"--or retail and kiosk sales--as the only means of allowing customers to purchase tickets at multiple locations. Traditional outlets require training, upfront hardware costs, and have limited hours of operation.

The Internet forever changed the face of ticketing by enabling a "virtual" ticket outlet in every home. The popularity of smartphones further spread this reach to an outlet in every pocket. Customers have the option to purchase tickets from anywhere at any time, allowing for a virtual box office that's never closed!

Order Fulfillment

Fulfilling advanced online ticket sales in-house through conventional means can be expensive and time consuming. In addition to hardware and paper stock expenses, fulfillment requires your venue to devote staff resources to print, sort, and mail tickets to each of your customers. As an alternative to traditional order fulfillment, a ticketing website allows your venue to offer a Print at Home or electronic PDF ticket.

Upon order completion, your customers will receive an email receipt with their PDF tickets included. They can then print their tickets directly to their desktop printer or print them later. This form of ticket delivery offers substantial savings over traditional order fulfillment and saves your customers from the added cost of postage. It's a win-win situation!

Easy Ticket Authentication

If your venue is concerned with fraud, we have a variety of entry scanning solutions to meet your online ticketing budget. Print at Home tickets are each printed with secure and unique barcodes. With barcode scanners, you can verify not only the validity of a ticket, but you can also reduce counterfeit tickets through duplication checking even with multiple points of entry.
