Vendini Introduces QR Code Capability for Mobile TicketingPatrons Can Simply Scan and Buy a Ticket (October 25, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/11 -- When it comes to mobile ticketing, Vendini remains in the forefront, today releasing new mobile capabilities to allow patrons to use their smartphones to purchase tickets and gain access to concerts, sporting events, and other live performances without ever touching a piece of paper.
With Vendini, venues create their own QR codes for ticket purchase. Any of the estimated 82.2 million Americans with a smartphone can easily scan the code off a print ad, direct mail piece or even an online site and easily purchase a ticket. A confirmation is automatically sent to the individual's email and when they arrive at the event, their phone is scanned and they are admitted into the venue, without ever printing.
"Our new release makes it possible to take the entire ticketing experience to the patron's smartphone," explains Mark Tacchi, Vendini CEO and Founder. "Mobile ticketing isn't just a convenience for patrons, though, it increases efficiency and revenue for venues. It simplifies ticket purchasing and decreases costs associated with handling paper tickets."
"So far, response from patrons has been overwhelmingly positive," says Mark Guarnera, Vendini Executive Vice President. "QR codes make attending events much simpler for the growing number of patrons who use smartphones to help manage their time crunched schedules."
