4. Save Time and Manage Resources Better
Online-to-Box Office Integration
Any ticketing solutions worth its weight should integrate seamlessly with your box office activities.
First of all, not everyone likes to purchase online, so your staff will be fielding phone calls as well. Secondly, you’re going to want to scan those e-ticket barcodes at the event box office to ensure only one ticket is redeemed per sale. And finally, there will be the stragglers who wait until the last minute and want to purchase at the door – providing you’re not sold out, of course.
You’re going to want to bring all of these situations together at the event box office to ensure proper ticket reconciliation. We provide hand-held scanners and a point-of-sales sales interface to make this happen effortlessly and automatically.

Again, a standard feature required for online event ticket management is multi-user capabilities.
Pleasant Tickets goes one step further, by providing a powerful set of user access levels by role. This gives you unparalleled flexibility in setting staff security levels and subsequent functional access. Now that’s management control!
