accesso Webinar Series Presents: The Latest in Sports Venue Ticketing Innovations
When it’s time for the big game, your fans want to get to their favorite seat and enjoy the action - and you want to fill as many seats with excited fans as possible! Our accesso ShoWare ticketing solution offers powerful tools to help sports arenas increase fan engagement, streamline operations and drive ticket sales.
The accesso ShoWare suite is a “software as a service” (SaaS) solution, offering ticket-selling functionality for box office, online, mobile, social media, kiosks and call center. Your venue retains the capacity to fully brand your online store, set your own fees and maintain complete control over your ticketing system.
First and foremost, our accesso ShoWare solution is a reserved seat ticketing solution, with custom seat mapping and the ability to support real-time ticket sales at every salespoint both online and onsite. Our fully-hosted cloud-based software offers PCI Level 1 security, and real-time integrations to ensure seat sales online, on social media and at the box office are perfectly in sync, eliminating the need for ticket allocations.
In addition, our fully-responsive eCommerce storefront allows your fans to enjoy the same great purchasing experience on desktop, mobile or tablet, and also supports mobile ticket delivery and redemption for added convenience. These mobile-friendly features are vital for the success of your sporting venue! Since 2012, accesso’s own mobile ticket sales have increased from just 3 percent of online sales to 46 percent in 2016 - and that percentage is only going up!
The movement to mobile is well underway, with 9 of 10 US consumers saying they keep their phones within reach 24/7(1). Even more striking, 64 percent of smartphone users expect a page to load in just 4 seconds(2), and 40 percent have turned to a competitor’s site for a better mobile experience(3). In fact, 1 in 4 online shoppers say they will abandon their cart if a site’s navigation is too complex(4). With our accesso ShoWare eCommerce software, you can provide a quick, easy and enjoyable mobile experience your fans will love.
Your operators also have high expectations for your box office ticketing solution, and our accesso ShoWare suite delivers! Your venue will benefit from full in-house control, robust analytics and reporting, EMV compatibility, and simple content management tools. Engage loyal fans with membership and VIP benefit packages, and streamline your seating process with a variety of access control methods. Plus, our proven and reliable platform performance under high volume and high demand on-sales offers peace of mind for your venue when you need it most.
