We have experience building bespoke eTicketing tools for websites and mobile applications. If you run an event or require users to 'check in' on your product or service then there may be significant business benefits for you in implementing a digital ticket system or a smart app based event-registration process.
Electronically delivering event tickets can save a lot of money.
Consider the cost of a stamp, and then the printing costs of a standard theatre sized performance. It's easy to spend between £1000 and £3000 in ticket printing and posting costs alone for each event, especially if you require a holographic design.
eTickets eliminate these costs while making it much easier to deliver tickets digitally via a web browser or email.
These days people are addicted to their smartphones and want to do everything on them - this includes purchasing event tickets. Nobody looks forward to waiting for days for their ticket to arrive in the post; they want to visit on the day and simply bring up their ticket via an app or their emails to gain entry.
How much time gets lost at the box office dealing with users who have misplaced their ticket? Digital tickets don't have this problem. Even if a user has lost the email, recovering their ticket involves a simple search based on their name, address or email.
Each ticket comes equipped with its own unique identifier, a "QR code" that can be scanned by any free off-the-shelf barcode scanning app. Once scanned, the user's personal information is displayed, allowing for their identity to be verified.
A bespoke ticketing system is appropriate If you sell in high volumes or have a business process that doesn't fit with how these platforms work.
