LAS VEGAS, NV and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire -06/26/12)- Vendini, the largest cloud-based ticketing company in the nation, has become the first cloud-based ticketing provider to win approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC), setting the stage for Vendini to bring its broad-based software to any Nevada gaming establishment. Casino executives touted Vendini's system as, by far, the easiest to use in the industry and as providing bleeding-edge capabilities, from selling and tracking tickets to managing tax reporting to providing top-notch customer service.
"Vendini's system is light years ahead of the competition," said Ray Wolf of Wolf Theater at the Clarion Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, a sponsor to the NGC approval. "Beyond its ticketing expertise, Vendini is exceptional in its capabilities in handling broker invoicing, settling commissions, tracking Live Entertainment Taxes and providing a complete financial picture of each show."
Vendini's cloud-based system streamlines the process for the casinos and consumers. Its applications ultimately turn an iPad or iPhone, for example, into a mobile box office for casino operators, giving them the ability to sell tickets from anywhere at any time, access important data on ticket sales, and tweak marketing efforts to reflect the data.
For ticket buyers, the process of buying a ticket and seeing a show has never been easier because Vendini's cloud based system allows tickets on smartphones to be scanned at the door, which eliminates the need for the paper version of the ticket. This feature also can help guests who forgot or lost their ticket, which in turn allows the venues to offer customers a superior customer service experience. It even notifies key staff members via text message when a VIP enters, allowing casinos the ability to provide the ultimate VIP experience.
"What sets us apart, and what is really going to benefit the casino industry, is that we take care of the entire process, whether it's ticket sales, marketing, tax reporting, or customer service," said Mark Tacchi, founder and CEO of Vendini. "Our customers tell us that we have made it easier for them to focus on their customers."
Tacchi said Vendini's social media and email marketing solutions are a perfect fit for the casino industry, where success centers on great entertainment and spreading the word.
