WhistleTix addresses those needs and provides a platform for us to further innovate for this industry.

Today at the Association of Railway Museums Annual Conference, TicketBiscuit LLC announced the launch of WhistleTix, a ticketing system built for the tourist railway and railroad museum industry.

The new WhistleTix product has all of the popular features of the widely used TicketBiscuit ticketing system, but with features added to meet specific needs of the railway industry. Like TicketBiscuit, WhistleTix is entirely web based and free to set up, so there is no need to buy expensive hardware or install complicated software. It has been designed to be user-friendly, meaning that volunteers will require less training. WhistleTix has the capability for museums and railroads to upload specific railcar descriptions and pictures, and enables operators to easily change the configuration of rail cars as needed. The ticketing system also has built-in features to help operators sell more tickets and reach younger audiences, such as an email newsletter engine, customer management tools, and tools that enable ticket buyers to share events and plans with their friends via popular social media sites such as Facebook and MySpace.

"We realized that there were several needs of this industry that just weren't being addressed by the conventional ticketing systems," TicketBiscuit CEO Jeff Gale said. "WhistleTix addresses those needs and provides a platform for us to further innovate for this industry."

WhistleTix is TicketBiscuit's second addition to its product line in as many months. Last month, the company launched BattlePass, a ticketing system and related services aimed at mixed martial arts and combat sports promoters. Gale states that this is the new paradigm for the ticketing system industry, "It's no longer one size fits all. We're the first company to recognize that there are specific needs for specific businesses, and we're relentlessly innovating to meet those needs and provide them the best ticketing system possible. Ticketing is just the beginning. We're asking, 'How else can we help?'"
