LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Ticketmaster, a Live Nation Entertainment company (NYSE: LYV), announced the early release of its first client apps for the new Ticketmaster platform. With the replatforming project well underway, Ticketmaster is delivering industry-leading product applications and immediately driving additional value for venue, theatre and team clients. The Box Office app is currently being rolled out in box offices and next month, Ticketmaster will launch the Reporting app.
“Our team has worked hard to deliver valuable tools for our venue clients that will enable them to save resources and offer an even better fan experience,” said Jared Smith, COO of Ticketmaster. “We will release additional tools and applications to our clients over the coming months while we continuing to re-architect our ticketing platform that will broaden the world’s greatest ticketing sales and distribution engine.”
Ticketmaster built the web-based Box Office app from the ground up, providing clients more control and a greatly simplified customer workflow that reduces box office staff training by over 80%. Ticketmaster’s Reporting app combines the deep consumer insights from an entire portfolio of mobile, social and online applications – including world-leading live event site, Ticketmaster.com – with the sophisticated data analysis capabilities of Ticketmaster LiveAnalytics.
