eTix, the pioneer in on-demand ticketing got $1 million funding

What Company Is Offering:
eTix Online TicketingT - This allows customers to quickly and easily start selling event tickets online using the eTix system with full integration into the eTix Box Office or as a free standing online sales tool. It is an extremely scalable and robust platform. eTix provides a branded link, which matches the look and feel of the customer's Web site. Customers place the link on their Web site allowing them to start selling tickets immediately.

After a ticket has been purchased online, the ticket appears on the

eTix is offering full service for the venues and brings all ticketing into one easy to use interface. The customer controls ticket prices, seating configurations (for reserved seating), price codes and user administration. Performances can be easily created, onsale times pre-programmed, seats added and inventory moved.

The reporting suite gives customers analysis into every ticket sold. The solution includes leading edge tools for SMS ticket sales and distrubution, e-mail campaign and list management, and a full-featured ticket auction platform. The eTix Box Office has been used to sell tickets to events ranging from a small walking tour to a 200,000 reserved seat Formula One racetrack, so it can be customized and scaled to meet any customer's needs.
