One Essential Ticketing System for All Events
Booking a ticket in the box office has never been easier. Click and drag functionality provides operators with a straight forward and an easy to use interface. On a single screen, it is clear to operators how many tickets are available, how many are held/reserved and how many have paid.
Using live availability in real-time to link to the website, PatronBase provides all ticket buyers with current availability and no fear of double bookings. For busy periods there is quick ticket options, so operators can skip the seating plan process and book and pay for a seat instantly.
Venue, Seating Plan and Pricing Plan templates are easily set for use on future performances. Once events have been created, pricing and seating plans can be adjusted at Production or Performance levels, with a simple click of a button, making the set-up of new events quick and easy for administrators.
You can create unlimited new seating plans can be created by your organisation at any time.
Admin permissions can be set to allow different groups of staff the ability to access or limit certain data/modules.
Online and Mobile Ticketing
Buying a ticket online needs to be easy, secure, fast and work on all mobile platforms. Our booking system integrates with your existing look and feel, providing a smooth and unnoticeable transition to the booking pages.
You may have events that require a separate look and feel to the rest of the website. We provide additional web skins as required, to retain the seamless integration of all webpages.
PatronBase web skins are fully integrated with ALL mobile and tablet devices (including android and Apple phones), ensuring booking a ticket on a mobile is equally as accessible as on any other device. Real time booking assures that customers are always informed of exact ticket availability.
PatronBase provides print at home, mobile and physical ticketing options, each with configurable layouts and designs. Our mobile optimised booking pages make tickets easily and efficiently available on any device and which can be delivered instantaneously to the customer.
Different designs and layouts can be created for each event or ticket, providing venue marketing opportunities via customer tickets as well as external advertisements.
With Loyalty cards or annual admission tickets, PatronBase can integrate with PassBook or Apple Wallet so that the ticket & barcode is stored on their mobile device making scanned entry and visits easy for the customer.
Flexible Ticket Pricing
With flexibility in ticketing ticket prices can be set by venue, entire production, individual performance/event or on an individual seat basis, giving you full control over your ticket prices.
“Pick your own seat’ allows customers to decide where they want to sit and how much they want to spend to sit there. Price Banding is also flexible allowing you to set up as many price bands as needed (including Comps).
Ticket Prices can be changed at any time to keep up with demand. Automated On-sale dates can be set and adjusted to open or close certain areas, such as opening ‘Balcony’, a few weeks after the on-sale of the ‘Stalls’. ‘Early Bird’ offers seats at a certain price, up until a certain day; signing in to a restricted access customer log in page; or by providing a ‘code’ that can be redeemed to access advanced discounts or priority bookings.
Full Group Booking functionality:
Minimum or maximum purchase option for group bookings, allowing organisations to manage how many tickets can be purchased in one transaction. The minimum booking also provides for group discounts such as ‘Book 10+ tickets and receive a 10% discount’. The group price can be made available to all customers online however it would be unavailable for customers wishing to purchase less than 10 tickets.
Discounts such as special members’ prices can be seen, but are not available unless signed in, or have a relevant membership applicable to the event.
Details of how to book a membership price can be suggested to patrons, promoting membership schemes.
Unique codes can be provided for specific events or admissions to redeem vouchers, provide discounts or a priority booking opportunity. Restrictions on discount codes can be set to ensure discount or voucher codes can only be used once or in one transaction.
Codes can be utilised to track and analyse your marketing’s impact.
Vouchers for events or admissions and nominal value Gift Vouchers can also be purchased online
Multi-Buy options and discounts are easily set to provide an option for customers to purchase more than one ticket at a time and be rewarded for doing so. Users can categorise admission/events into a season or price bundle and have a separate page outlining all the available options in that season. For example, seasons could include:
1For customers wishing to sign up to a term of classes or a selection of events, in addition to the annual admission, it would be possible to offer bespoke discounts if they book for the whole season in advance.
