Coming off a historic Final Four®, we are pleased to announce that we have extended our partnership with the NCAA. As part of the multi-year agreement, the Veritix platform will continue to provide ticketing services for the NCAA Final Four and all championships and NCAA-sanctioned events. The NCAA will also continue to use Flash Seats®, the patented Veritix digital ticketing system. We look forward to providing the best ticketing technology to the NCAA and its fans!
We are pleased to announce the introduction of PlayThru, a game-based verification alternative to CAPTCHA. PlayThru, powered by Are You a Human, eliminates the need for ticket buyers to enter difficult to read CAPTCHA words that require multiple entry attempts. Instead, consumers will engage in short, interactive games to verify that they are human. Quicken Loans Arena will be the first Veritix client to use PlayThru.
“We are always looking at ways to improve the user experience, and PlayThru transforms the buying process by making it easy and fun for fans to verify they are real purchasers while interacting with a client or sponsor’s brand,” said Samuel Gerace , CEO of Veritix.
We are pleased to announce that the 2013 NCAA Men’s Final Four was the largest digital ticketing event in history. The Final Four in Atlanta had more than 60,000 people enter the semi-final and championship games through Flash Seats®, the patented Veritix digital ticketing system.
“We are thrilled with the success of Flash Seats for this year’s Final Four, and we’re very happy that we made the decision to open it up as an option for NCAA basketball fans,” said Josh Logan , Director of Ticketing & Marketing at the NCAA. “It offered the flexibility and convenience that fans needed and a totally safe and secure ticket transaction, ensuring all fans who purchased Flash Seats tickets received guaranteed, legitimate tickets. We were so impressed with how perfectly the system performed.”
