Events are moving targets with different sponsors and locations coming into play, and we have to count on the fact that we can accommodate them quickly and effectively. Whether we are updating web pages, issuing tickets and coupons, or delivering branded messages, it all has to work seamlessly. We are happy to have found such a complete ticketing and event management solution with Twelve Horses.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
Mountain Sports International (MSI), one of the world's leading sports marketing experts, today announced that it has selected Twelve Horses, an integrated online marketing and messaging company, as their digital ticketing provider for action/adventure sports events and programming in North America.
In the past, MSI was forced to dedicate an exorbitant amount of time and effort to the management of their registration process. Twelve Horses was not only able to offer them a packaged solution that lowers the cost of operations, but also provides a means of exploring new sources of revenue through affiliate marketing and the support of 3rd party products.
"We are excited to use Twelve Horses Ticketing to manage our events," said Adam Comey, president and co-founder of MSI. "Not only will their ticketing system bring a greater level of efficiency to our registration process, but it also gives us a point-of-sale system that is far more flexible, scalable, and easy-to-use."
MSI will use Twelve Horses Ticketing to manage action sports competitions such as the U.S. Freeskiing Open, The North Face Masters, and the Freeskiing World Tour. Along with managing registrations, MSI will conduct lotteries where participants are randomly selected and automatically notified with branded messages. Integrated scanning technology will be used on-site to quickly confirm registered participants and place them in their appropriate categories.
"Our relationship with MSI is a natural fit considering our base of tourism and hospitality clients" said TJ Crawford, director of product development for Twelve Horses. "Much of the inherent flexibility and ease-of-use our ticketing platform provides comes from knowing what a business like MSI really need when they are in a dynamic location like a ski resort."
In addition to operating their own events, MSI also provides event management services for independent brands like Red Bull, Salomon, and Burton. The Twelve Horses Ticketing system gives them the ability to manage the activities and revenues of multiple clients, events and affiliates, and everything from branding across multiple channels to tiered pricing, redemption, and reporting are all controlled through one central content management system.
"Because we offer a full line of integrated solutions for event management, we need a technology platform that does the same" added Comey. "Events are moving targets with different sponsors and locations coming into play, and we have to count on the fact that we can accommodate them quickly and effectively. Whether we are updating web pages, issuing tickets and coupons, or delivering branded messages, it all has to work seamlessly. We are happy to have found such a complete ticketing and event management solution with Twelve Horses."
