Boyertown, PA, United States, 2009/12/17 - Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc. received the Best New Product award at the 2009 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo, for its newest product, eGalaxy Reseller Web Store.
Gateway Ticketing Systems has once again received recognition for Best New Product at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo, held in Las Vegas. This year the award was earned in the Technology Applied to Amusements category for the company’s newest product, eGalaxy Reseller Web Store.
eGalaxy Reseller Web Store is a Web-based Point of Sale application designed to automate the process of consignment ticket sales. A consignment, or reseller, program is based on an agreement with a contracted sales partner to make tickets available for purchase through the partner’s venue. Types of sales partners include military bases, hotels and grocery stores.
Gateway’s award-winning product provides increased control of consignment ticket sales by reducing the costs associated with reseller channels and increasing the efficiency and accuracy of reseller program management.
Major benefits of eGalaxy Reseller Web Store include a significant reduction in costs, wasted time and effort. Thanks to print-on-demand functionality, providing resellers with pre-printed tickets is no longer necessary, reducing both costs and risk. Other features include an automated reconciliation process that reduces hours of labor previously spent collecting and manually counting unused tickets. Up-to-the-minute sales reporting collects sales data and invoices resellers at regular intervals so revenue can be realized immediately instead of at the end of the season.
Gateway customer Michael McSparran, Marketing Systems Analyst Supervisor at the San Diego Zoo, reported seeing an excellent return on investment on the product shortly after implementation. He added, “It was an easy decision for us to purchase eGalaxy Reseller Web Store as it helped our Sales Clients from being without tickets. Also, our reconcile process will be nearly eliminated as we don't have to collect tickets for reconcile from over 500 sales clients.”
Michael Andre, Gateway President, said, “We’re excited to have won Best New Product at IAAPA this year for eGalaxy Reseller Web Store. It’s a leading-edge product in the industry, and our customers have seen excellent results with it already. It helps us provide a timely solution in an economy that has not yet recovered from the recession,” said Andre.
