The ticketing industry has come a long way since show tickets were perforated sheets on large paper rolls, and solely available from venue box-offices!
Computicket was the first company to introduce computerised ticketing to South Africa. The evolution of electronic networks soon allowed this service to expand into supermarket kiosks and later, the internet allowed for online ticketing which has become the popular purchase method, with many people now choosing to print their Computicket tickets at home rather than have to physically collect from an outlet.
What few people are aware of, however, is that Computicket is one of only a handful of ticketing agents in the world who have made ticketing so accessible by using a varied range of platforms. In addition to their website and call-centre, tickets can be purchased from your cellphone via their mobisite – www.computicket.mobi – as well as via Computicket-specific downloadable apps developed for iPhone, iPad and Android phones. Computicket also prefers to develop all their apps locally and by doing so directly supports the South African software programming and developing industry.
Computicket’s commitment to widespread ticketing availability for all South Africans ensures that these apps are free to download as well as being convenient and easy to use. In addition to home-printing, these new mobile ticketing apps make buying a ticket as easy as sending an sms – so if you’re not using them yet, you probably will be shortly.
