Tickets.com has today announced the introduction of the latest version of its ticketing system, ProVenue®, for the world renowned opera house Semperoper, in Dresden, Germany.
A client since 1993, Semperoper will utilise ProVenue® alongside the existing technology previously implemented by Tickets.com to manage all aspects of its ticketing; this includes online sales with a wide range of advanced features, as well as customer selection, data cleansing and reporting.
As Tickets.com’s most advanced ticketing system, ProVenue® is a full service, integrated ticketing solution that puts users in complete control of their ticketing operation. It enables venues to sell tickets to consumers under their own brand and capture, access and own consumer data, providing a 360° view of the buying habits and preferences of their patrons.
Alongside ProVenue®, Semperoper will also continue to use Tickets.com’s integrated e-mail system, which permits the venue to not only manage its data effectively but also build, send and track HTML campaigns.
Already well-established throughout the US, ProVenue® was launched internationally in 2015. The National Speedway Stadium and the entire British Basketball League were some of the first to take advantage of the robust platform in UK market and the advanced ticketing platform is also being used across the globe in dozens of leading performing arts venues and professional sports clubs. ProVenue’s® popularity continues to grow in North America, Europe and Australia, with an ever increasing number of clients taking advantage of its intuitive design, clever inventory management and ability to seamlessly integrate with other applications.
Commenting on the launch of ProVenue®, Doris Schneider, head of sales and service at Semperoper Dresden, said: “Having worked with Tickets.com for more than 20 years now, we continue to be impressed by its ongoing product innovation and development, so the update to ProVenue® was a natural migration for Semperoper.
“We’ve worked closely with the team throughout the development and testing phase to ensure that the system is meeting the requirements of the venue and we’ve been really pleased with our experience of ProVenue® so far; we are very confident that it will provide us with a strong platform to better engage with our existing and prospective customers and we are looking forward to continuing our longstanding partnership with Tickets.com.”
Derek Palmer, Tickets.com’s managing director and executive vice president, international, said: “Today’s announcement is a significant development in the roll out of ProVenue®, as not only does it indicate the growing portfolio of customers worldwide that are moving across to new solutions, but it also represents the expansion of our technical infrastructure throughout Europe.
“Semperoper is a fantastic venue and showcase for how Tickets.com systems continue to evolve with customer and industry requirements and trends; we remain ever focused on evolving and revolutionising technology and the ticketing landscape to deliver a seamless ticketing experience for our customers and their clients.”
Built in 1841, Semperoper hosts over 700 events and welcomes more than 400,000 visitors every year; a popular opera house widely renowned for its star-studded performances by the Saxon State Opera and Orchestra, the venue has a long history of premieres, including major works by Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss.
