PRESS RELEASE: “TicketNetwork Teams Up With ScoreBig to Provide Real-Time Access to Ticket Inventory”
VERNON, CT (Marketwire) July 15, 2011 — TicketNetwork, the leading online ticket exchange for events and innovative technology solutions provider for both ticket buyers and sellers, today announced it has formed a strategic alliance with ScoreBig, a members-only site that offers huge savings on thousands of sports, concert and theater tickets.
TicketNetwork will provide ScoreBig with ticket inventory through the use of the company’s Mercury system offering. Mercury is a buying/selling data feed guaranteed to provide tickets in real-time originating from a marketplace featuring ticket inventory from more than 600 ticket brokers across the nation.
The new alliance provides TicketNetwork’s broker partners with wider distribution and ScoreBig’s members with an enriched source of tickets with greater discounts across the board. As a result of the real time integration with Mercury, the ticketing experience will also be greatly enhanced for both brokers and buyers. Additionally, the new relationship will enable brokers to mitigate losses through utilization of the ScoreBig value channel to liquidate undersold inventory. As is standard with ScoreBig, all orders are backed by a money back guarantee.
“We are excited that ScoreBig has engaged TicketNetwork’s Mercury ticketing system as it will lead to a seamless experience for its customers,” said Don Vaccaro, CEO, TicketNetwork.
