Hello, and welcome! We’re blogging live from IAVM’s 2016 VenueConnect in Minneapolis, MN.
It’s a great opening day here at the conference, where we just heard from Keynote Speaker Daymond John, but the real excitement—for us, anyway—is happening on the 24th floor of the Hyatt. This year, we decided to do something different. We’re busy setting up the exclusive TicketForce Suite—Suite 2411 at the Hyatt Regency—where we’re getting ready to host a happy hour from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM. Tomorrow, you can drop by the same suite for demos of our new Enterprise Platform.
That’s what we’re really excited to share with you.
For a few years we’ve been revving up to do something different in ticketing. We knew that venues had needs that ticketing solutions just weren’t providing for them. We also had a good friend down in Australia who had taken an exciting piece of software, Softix, and was continually developing it to include new features and technology not available here in North America.
Awed by this world-class, multi-platform software, which has been powering Australia’s largest—yes, bigger than Ticketmaster!—ticketing provider, we paired with Softix to be the first and exclusive provider of this software in North America.
We’re so impressed by all that this software has to offer. Orphan seats? No longer a problem with Full House™—a box-office enabled feature that sends a unique link to everyone with an empty seat next to theirs. The first time this feature was used by Ticketek, it sold 99% of empty seats!
And it doesn’t stop there. Now you can know exactly who’s in what seat, with Invite a Friend™, a powerful tool that allows patrons to hold seats for their friends—but only as long as you designate.
There’s so much more, and we’re incredibly excited to be able to bring these exciting features to North America. So excited, that we’ll be introducing a new feature to you every week, with our new blog series: Get to know the Enterprise Platform. If you can’t wait until then, you can always sign up for a demo now.
We hope you’ll stop by the blog to get to know all this platform has to offer. In the meantime, we’re off to have a cocktail in the TicketForce Suite at IAVM.
