PRESS RELEASE: “TICKETLEAP LAUNCHES ANDROID TICKET SCANNING”

PHILADELPHIA, PA (TicketLeap) January 11, 2011 – With the launch of a new Android ticket scanning application, TicketLeap enables event organizers to break free from traditional ticketing hardware and easily manage ticket scanning from any Android phone. The TicketLeap app is now available as a free download in the Android Market.

“This application represents the future of events,” says Chris Stanchak, CEO of TicketLeap. “Events are going mobile and we believe this is the most cutting-edge ticket scanning app for Android.”

A leader in online ticketing and social media for events, TicketLeap has worked with event organizers across the globe to ticket tens of thousands of events. Every TicketLeap e-ticket contains a unique QR code which can be scanned by the TicketLeap Android app.

The app connects with TicketLeap events, allowing event organizers to quickly scan tickets with an Android phone and to ensure that all tickets are authentic. Users can also search for and check-in attendees by name, email address or ticket confirmation code. The check-in history syncs with TicketLeap and the app tracks the check-in progress while it’s in use. Events with more than one point of entry can use the TicketLeap app on multiple phones to scan tickets simultaneously.

“Instead of investing in bulky, expensive ticketing hardware we are enabling organizers to use a smartphone to control an event entrance,” Stanchak added. “Events of any size, whether they own a venue or not, can use the TicketLeap app to shorten lines and manage the attendee check-in process.”

Take the TicketLeap app for a test drive at www.ticketleap.com/android.
