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.
