The future of mobile ticketing: A golden ticket for your business

The Summer Solstice is just around the corner, and with the warmer weather and sunny skies we can expect the traditional uptick in seasonal entertainment options. Summer is the time for outdoor sporting events, concerts, festivals, shows and more. This season is one of the busiest times of the year for the entertainment industry, which means ticket sales will be up, and consumers will be looking to industry leaders to provide innovative ticketing options that embrace their mobile lifestyle.

Mobile ticketing solutions provide numerous benefits for both the consumer and ticketing providers. Anyone who has ever used a mobile ticketing app knows how convenient it is as a consumer to purchase a ticket online and simply scan your smartphone at the door for an event, but many aren’t aware of the business benefits inherent within these mobile applications. Mobile ticketing solutions allow businesses to decentralize event management, reduce business costs, advance technology and improve customer service. By designing or enhancing a mobile ticketing app, you’re embracing the mobile transformation and securing your place in the future business marketplace.

Decentralizing event management:

By providing your staff with a mobile ticketing app you can effectively decentralize the ticketing process, and speed up entry lines. Empower your entire workforce to scan tickets with the touch of a screen. All they need to do is download a smartphone application and they’re ready to start scanning.

Reducing business costs:

By replacing dedicated hardware and equipping your staff with a ticketing app you can greatly reduce both labor and hardware costs. You can also adopt a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model for employees that own smart devices, further shrinking the cost of ownership. Purchasing bulky and expensive dedicated devices is no longer necessary to get the performance you’ve grown to rely on.

Advancing your business technology:

Scandit’s barcode scanning technology is fast and reliable, providing users with a familiar and easy-to-use in-app scanner. You’ll also be able to scan in blurry or low-lit environments where other software based barcode scanners won’t succeed.

Improving customer service:

Your customers will enjoy the benefit of quicker entry lines and reduced human error. Scandit’s barcode scanning technology can decode common ticket barcodes such as PDF417, QR and Code 128 in as little as 5 milliseconds per frame. This allows precise ticket scanning each and every time to keep lines moving all summer long. Nobody enjoys waiting in lines for extended periods of time, and with Scandit’s barcode scanning technology they won’t have to.
