Yeovil Town FC becomes first English club to adopt ProVenue ticketing system

Yeovil Town FC, a client since 2012, has recently migrated across to ProVenue to manage all of the club’s ticketing requirements.

Football League Two side Yeovil Town went live with the new ticketing system in time for its pre-season friendly against Swindon Town in July; the first home league game ticketed through ProVenue was a 2-0 win against Notts County.

The decision to move across to ProVenue was made to boost the club’s online ticket sales and experience for its fans; already sales online are up on last season’s per-game average and feedback from supporters has been very positive.

“Moving across to ProVenue was a major step forward for the club; it will enable us to provide an improved ticketing experience for our fans and encourage more ticket sales online, which is something we are working hard to achieve,” said Robert Baker, Ticket Office Manager at Yeovil Town.

The club also wanted to upgrade to ProVenue to benefit from the system’s advanced CRM features. ProVenue allows users to capture data in a variety of formats to support in the analysis of trends, to develop metrics and facilitate targeted marketing campaigns.

A quick turnaround to get the new system up and running in time for the start of the Football League season was essential; the club’s longstanding relationship with’s support and customer services team was vital to this, as Robert explains, “We’ve worked really closely with to ensure that the new system was designed and built to meet our ticketing needs – and, against a tight deadline, the team delivered exactly what was required. Their in-depth understanding of the club is invaluable and we have a fantastic relationship with the team there.”

Nick Kinsella at said: “We’re really pleased with the feedback so far from Robert and his team since the club went live with ProVenue; the system’s advanced functionality will enable them to offer their fans so much more in the way of an online experience and its reliable, user-friendly features will support the growth in online ticket sales.” extends international ProVenue® roll-out with launch at Info Cultuur and HETPALEIS has today announced the introduction of the latest version of its ticketing system, ProVenue®, for the popular Antwerp-based ticket outlet & cultural information centre, Info Cultuur, and popular youth theatre HETPALEIS.

Red Sox to Launch Official Resale Ticketing Platform For Fans to Buy and Sell Red Sox Tickets

BOSTON, MA – The Red Sox today announced plans to launch a new online resale ticket platform where fans can buy and sell Red Sox tickets. “Red Sox Replay” will be available to all fans through their Red Sox “My Tickets” account. The platform is scheduled to go live on March 1 at

Red Sox Replay allows sellers to set the ticket price and even provides the option of automatically donating tickets to the Red Sox Foundation for a tax credit should they remain unsold by a certain date or time.

The new platform will have lower fees for buyers than competing sites, and because it is fully integrated with the Red Sox ticketing system, tickets will be sent electronically, eliminating the need for printing and shipping.

Red Sox season ticket holders will have added incentives to use the site, including lower fees and the option of a full fee reimbursement towards renewal of their season ticket account. The group will also earn Red Sox Rewards points with each sale.

“Over the years, one of the requests we have heard most from our season ticket holders is to provide them with a safe, trusted, and convenient way to sell their unused Red Sox tickets,” said Red Sox President Sam Kennedy. “Creating our own secondary market platform enables us to provide an option that guarantees buyers the authenticity of their purchase and allows users to work directly with the Red Sox to resolve any customer service issues, which is not always possible with a third party vendor.”

Red Sox Replay is being created in partnership with MLBAM and, and will be available on mobile devices and through the free Ballpark app.


The Meaning Behind “Experience Is Everything”

While this momentous occasion was purposed to connect, collaborate, and discover future technology trends, Choti desired an even more true exchange when he stated, “See these people. Get to know them. I want you to tell us the success you’ve had and the challenges you’ve had.”

Here Choti emphasized the importance of sharing experiences. This is where Team is goingputting our patrons’ desire to experience at the forefront of everything we do by ensuring the most advanced technological tools because it’s all about less waiting and more living.

This notion birthed the idea of “Experience is Everything” as it has the power to create great stories, amazing memories, and life-changing ideas.

Thought Leadership and The Importance of Sharing Ideas. Our Week At The INTIX Conference

The 37th Annual Conference & Exhibition in Anaheim, California, was my first INTIX experience and a huge success for Our company’s booth was well-staffed by our industry experts, and it provided us with an excellent opportunity to further strengthen our brand with conference attendees. It was exhilarating to be surrounded by so many brilliant colleagues, customers, and competitors willing to share their experiences and market strategies.

For me, this conference was an invaluable opportunity to see how other leaders in ticketing are leveraging combinations of sales, attendance, concession, and merchandizing data to increase overall revenue and improve patrons’ experiences. The future of ticketing is increasingly personalized customer service that rewards loyalty and curates marketing efforts based on each patron’s purchasing patterns. Part of my job will be to continue modeling our data to make it accessible for CRM in our own ProVenueForce® product as well as our clients’ other CRM solutions.

On the last day of the conference, I had the privilege of moderating a panel of CRM experts in the ticketing space, with a focus on ticket-data extraction and transformation. The panel was lively and well-attended by CRM veterans as well as managers looking for guidance for first time CRM implementation. Daniel Kim of Medieval Times, Josh Zeigenbusch of the Oakland Athletics, and our own CTO, Derek Argobright, had lively discussion with robust participation from our sizeable and very engaged audience. Our presenters and attendees left the discussion contemplating many new, game-changing ideas.
