ORLAN­DO, Fla. (May 11, 2017) – acces­so Tech­nol­o­gy Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the pre­mier tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions provider to leisure, enter­tain­ment and cul­tur­al mar­kets, is part­ner­ing with the pop­u­lar Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val to pro­vide a ful­ly inte­grat­ed tick­et­ing platform.

The Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val, which takes place May 16 – 29 in Orlando’s Loch Haven Park, will imple­ment the company’s acces­so ShoWare solu­tion, a cloud-based Soft­ware-as-a-Ser­vice (SaaS) for tick­et sales and dis­tri­b­u­tion. The tick­et­ing soft­ware will allow atten­dees to pur­chase tick­ets for var­i­ous per­for­mances either onsite or online, while enabling fes­ti­val oper­a­tors to seam­less­ly inte­grate and man­age the tick­et­ing process on a sin­gle platform. 

As the longest-run­ning fringe fes­ti­val in the U.S., the Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val has become a mar­quee event in our com­mu­ni­ty, and we need­ed a com­pre­hen­sive tick­et­ing solu­tion to help meet our grow­ing demand,” said Alau­na Fris­kics, exec­u­tive direc­tor of Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val. Acces­so ShoWare should allow us to stream­line our tick­et pur­chase process and pro­vide a has­sle-free expe­ri­ence for our patrons.” 

Cre­at­ed in 1992, the Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val is one of Cen­tral Florida’s pre­mier cul­tur­al events designed to cel­e­brate the the­atri­cal and per­form­ing arts. Span­ning 13 days and fea­tur­ing more than 500 per­for­mances, the fes­ti­val pro­vides an oppor­tu­ni­ty for artists to show­case their work in an acces­si­ble and inclu­sive envi­ron­ment. The Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val, which is now the longest-run­ning fringe fes­ti­val in the U.S., also pro­vides 100 per­cent of prof­its from tick­et sales back to the artists. 

With the acces­so ShoWare tick­et­ing solu­tion in place, the Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val will ben­e­fit from a range of fea­tures to cus­tomize and enhance its tick­et sales. Patrons will have the abil­i­ty to select their tick­ets direct­ly on the secure fes­ti­val web­site, or pur­chase tick­ets onsite via acces­so ShoWares box office mod­ule, which inte­grates and syncs with online sales in real time. Fes­ti­val oper­a­tors will also have access to com­pre­hen­sive data and report­ing on pur­chase pat­terns, tick­et avail­abil­i­ty and oth­er user behavior. 

We are proud to part­ner with the nation’s longest-run­ning fringe fes­ti­val to pro­vide a con­ve­nient tick­et­ing solu­tion for their patrons,” said Steve Brown, acces­so CEO. The Orlan­do Fringe Fes­ti­val has expe­ri­enced tremen­dous suc­cess, and our tech­nol­o­gy ensures a seam­less tick­et­ing expe­ri­ence to sup­port their con­tin­ued growth.”
