Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) July 13, 2010
SeatHound.com, the Live Event Ticket Search Engine, has released new online interactive seat maps for the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB. With the launch of the new interactive maps, SeatHound.com is introducing an upgraded ticket buying experience that empowers the consumer to customize, explore and compare multiple ticket selling sources all while viewing a picture from their seat before they buy.
These new interactive seat maps redefine comparison ticket shopping and the whole idea behind the ticket search engine. Whereas most other interactive seat maps require the user to navigate through sections of a specific venue one at a time, SeatHound.com's new maps offer the user the option to select multiple sections within that same venue at the same time presenting the user with a list of tickets that includes all of their options at once. The technology ensures that the user is able to compare tickets from any desired seating areas within the same list, allowing them to compare prices, availability and seating options at the same time.
"Single section selection on an interactive map puts the consumer at a disadvantage," said Rob Velton, SeatHound.com's Chief Information Officer, "it does not allow them to pick like sections around a specific venue and compare prices from those sections at the same time. Over the past two years, we have researched, tested and ultimately implemented the most user friendly interactive maps we could come up with. Our maps take the best parts of the old style, single section selection, interactive maps and add specific new features that enhance the overall experience resulting in time and money being saved by the user."
Searches start with a view of the entire venue's seat map. By scrolling over each individually numbered section, views of the seat along with statistics appear that include the number of seats available, the average price of each seat, and the highest and lowest cost is for any individual seat within that numbered section. Features of the map include provider filters (ticket seller that is offering tickets to the event they are searching), grouped stadium section filters (such as orchestra or lower level side line), price, quantity, and row filters. Individually numbered sections can also be selected on the map itself individually or in groups.
"SeatHound.com's new cutting edge interactive seat maps are an excellent tool for us to support our goal of becoming the live event ticket search engine of choice," said Dan Taylor, the site's Chief Executive Officer. "We have committed to building a site where users can find the best deals on event tickets anywhere on the web. These new interactive maps combined with our top of the line internet ticket search technology allow the user to feel truly confident that they are getting the best price available, period."
