If you’re an NBA fan, this is the most exciting time of the year as the 2012 NBA playoffs tip off this weekend. Eight teams (16 in total) from both the Eastern and Western Conference will compete against each other for a chance to meet in the NBA Finals in June. Each round will be played in a best-of-seven series format. The last team standing will be crowned NBA champion, staking claim to the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
We’re excited that our clients the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz will both be participating in this year’s playoffs. The Nuggets, who are seeded sixth in the West, will face the Los Angeles Lakers. The Jazz, seeded eighth in the West, will face the San Antonio Spurs. (Click here to see the rest of the playoff matchups.)
Just as in the regular season, many fans will turn to our paperless ticketing system Flash Seats® for venue entry and to buy, sell, and transfer their playoff tickets. Fans will also have the added value of knowing they are buying from a safe and secure marketplace that is endorsed by their team. This is especially important during the playoffs with the high volume of counterfeit tickets that tend to circulate. All primary tickets for each home playoff game will be sold through the Veritix® platform.
We look forward to what we hope is an exciting few months of basketball for our clients!
We recently expanded our ticketing business by providing primary ticketing services to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s 2012 Induction Ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall Auditorium. Tickets to the sold out show, which were gone within minutes and available to the public for only the second time in induction history, were exclusively sold through the Veritix platform. The event featured live performances from the 2012 Inductees which included Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Beastie Boys among others. The event further exemplified that Veritix’s ticketing technology can be adopted for any event, large or small.

Imagine if you had that kind of data on your fans. Imagine the targeted offers you could provide. Imagine expanding your revenue and strengthening your relationships with fans. Imagine the future of ticketing today…with Flash Seats. If you’re interested in stepping into the future and taking control of it right now, contact us at 216-466-8082 or via email.
Many fans spend time and money arranging ticket exchanges with family members, friends, or coworkers. Whether it’s driving to meet someone at a specific location, shipping tickets via standard or express mail, leaving tickets at Will Call, or listing tickets for sale on multiple websites, these old methods are no longer necessary. With Flash Seats®, the Veritix® paperless ticketing solution, seats can be transferred instantly and electronically online, anytime, in one central location. It’s easy and painless!
The Flash Seats transfer feature is unique in the ticketing industry because it allows fans to transfer tickets to anyone, as long as that person has an email address. There are no limitations or restrictions. They just pick the tickets to send and transfer away. It’s one of our most popular features, and since 2006, our system has handled more than 800,000 transfers, moving 1.3 million paperless tickets, and processed over 5.1 million total paperless transactions. Fans are using paperless tickets at a rapid rate because of its convenience and flexibility, and the success of paperless tickets will continue to grow as more and more fans adopt this technology to manage their tickets.
Not only is it simple and easy to initiate a transfer, but the system tracks each user’s transfer history, which is available on the Transfers tab in the system. Information, such as the date and time of transfers, number of seats transferred, the email address seats were transferred to, and event details for the transferred seats, is tracked and shown for easy viewing and review. This is a real timesaver for many of our users, but especially businesses. Outside of Flash Seats, many businesses track tickets they give to clients in a spreadsheet, manually entering and managing the information. But with Flash Seats, they can throw the spreadsheet away! With all the transfer data, including seat specifics and contact information, available right on-screen on the Transfers tab, the process to track client tickets is easier and faster than ever. Most importantly, when initiating a new transfer, the system provides a drop-down menu that displays all email addresses to which the user has ever sent tickets. All the email addresses are saved, giving the person transferring seats easy access to past contacts. With Flash Seats, users essentially have an electronic rolodex for ticket transfers at their disposal.
For teams and venues, this transfer data provides valuable insight into fans’ behaviors. Flash Seats is the only system that can show exactly who each person in a transfer is, when a transfer took place, and what specific seats were transferred. Because Flash Seats paperless tickets exist only in an electronic environment, you always know who owns a ticket. It’s permanent visibility, start to finish, and the tickets are guaranteed.
Gone are the days of paper tickets getting physically passed from friend to friend, leaving teams and venues in the dark, not knowing or understanding who used the seats. The future is here with Flash Seats paperless tickets. Take advantage today!
