Keith Prowse Sport and Entertainment Travel through its new online portal has successfully incorporated an online one stop ticketing software and content solution for travel agents.
The portal is powered by TicketSwitch software – a simple, powerful, low cost solution which enables agents to sell more event tickets efficiently and profitably.
The new booking tool and products, seen as the future of event ticketing, can be booked online at www.keithprowse.com.au
Event tickets are sourced directly from supplier inventory systems. Travel agents are therefore able to avail themselves of highly competitive prices benefitting from reduced back office administration as well as inventory availability right up to just before the time of the event.
John Godwin, managing director of Keith Prowse said that over 200 agencies had signed up for the new portal in just over four weeks.
“The take-up has exceeded our expectations with significant interest from a wide array of agencies. We expect to reach our first quarter sales target within the first two months,” Mr Godwin said.
“Agents are now able to book events all over the world from just one website in addition to packaging accommodation and having real-time confirmation of purchase.
Key events ticketing benefits include:
· Having real time access to best available live inventory to over 1000 ticketed events for theatre, opera, ballet, comedy, attractions, theme parks, sightseeing and tours in 100 major cities and across 17 countries – all in one platform
· Buying tickets right up to the last minute
· Accessing competitive prices
· Receiving real time confirmation of purchase
· Receiving tickets directly from the supplier
- · Dynamic package functionality with online availability and instant confirmation.
Mr Godwin said that the new online product launch had seen the roll out of the first phase with many strategic and exclusive product deals, all of which can be tailored for travel agents, travel management services, leisure travellers and corporate clients. Keith Prowse will also be offering customised own brand white label solutions to key partners.
“Keith Prowse’s mission is to empower event ticket suppliers to increase their sales revenues utilising the TicketSwitch global distribution platform to provide access to a vast array of local, national and global sales channels at low cost to the supplier and the distributor,” Mr Godwin said.
“The portal is a hugely exciting realisation of this opportunity enabling travel agents to source a wide range of event tickets from a single platform in the same way as hotels, flights, car hire and airport transfers are sold, ultimately enabling their customers to access the best prices available direct from the box office.”
TicketSwitch is the world’s most efficient event ticket sales and distribution technology integrating with most leading ticket box office systems, allowing connected distributors real-time access without the need for manual allocations and gives event tickets suppliers full control of the distribution process by supplying tickets directly from live inventories to the client or channel.
