How We Work

Performing Arts Ticketing

Performing arts organizations are known to captivate and emotionally move their audiences. We are excited to say that we have been apart of this experience by providing the arts with a ticketing solution that continuously keeps their audiences in awe.

  • Are other seat map tools insufficient?

    Seating maps with limited customization can prevent event managers from building out larger seat maps with color-coded sections and different price points. Complex seating maps with curved rows and multiple sections can also be difficult to construct without the proper tools.

  • Our seat map builder is simple and flexible.

    Conveniently build sections and rows with a few clicks, or curve row and entire sections to any degree with our intuitive curve tool. Customize the background graphics along with seat sizes, colors, and shapes that are displayed on the map.


  • Do you manually communicate with patrons?

    Facilitating announcements or personalized responses to various customers can be difficult when there are no proper tools in place. Balancing several schedules of when certain communication needs to be sent out can become disorderly and potentially forgotten.

  • We automate key communications.

    Our communication tools provide event managers with the ability to automate event reminders, send thank you emails, letters, and build email lists to connect more quickly and effectively with customers.


  • Unable to assign subscribers seating?

    Standard subscriptions do not give event managers the ability to assign seats to patrons. This limits patrons from seeing multiple shows in the same seat and it creates more work for event managers to recommend acceptable seating to each attendee they speak with.

  • Utilize our theatre subscriptions.

    Theatre subscriptions allow event managers to assign specific seats to patrons for the entire duration of a season. This lessens the work to continuously ensure that patrons are satisfied with their seats. Patrons can enjoy all shows in their subscription from the same view.
