PRESS RELEASE: “TicketNetwork.com Targets Smartphone Users, Launches Mobile Site”
VERNON, CT (TicketNetwork) June 2, 2011 – TicketNetwork.com, a leader in the secondary ticket market, has announced the release of its new mobile website. Accessible from the iPad, iPhone, Android and other mobile devices, the site provides customers a better way to purchase tickets on-the-go for their favorite events.
“With the popularity of iPhones and Android devices, we’ve seen a significant increase in mobile traffic to our site over the past few months,” said Jessica Cushing, Product Manager, TicketNetwork.com. “We know customers are interested in purchasing tickets when they’re on the go, and our mobile site makes that process much easier and more convenient.”
The mobile version of TicketNetwork.com is streamlined and designed to load quickly while still giving customers the features they need to easily find tickets. It features a prominent search tool that lets users quickly find concerts, sports events, and theater shows they’re interested in, from the more than 80,000 events on the TicketNetwork.com exchange.
The site also provides a one-touch calling button for visitors who need additional assistance from TicketNetwork.com’s customer service professionals. Users who prefer a more robust experience can easily access the full version of the site.
Like the full version of TicketNetwork.com, visitors to the mobile site can take advantage of a location filter that limits event listings to those in their area. The site also incorporates seating charts, giving buyers a preview of a venue’s layout before their purchase. Finally, the checkout process is simplified, allowing customers to quickly and easily complete their ticket order.
Because the mobile site is designed with customers in mind, it will continue to evolve as mobile device technology changes. TicketNetwork also plans on soliciting feedback from mobile users and incorporating those responses into future iterations of the design.
“I’m very excited to see the mobile site go live,” said Cushing. “Ticket purchases are often time-sensitive, so it’s important for us to provide our mobile visitors with a great user experience. Customers shouldn’t have to wait until they’re near a computer to buy tickets, and the mobile site accommodates that.”
