CellarPass Announces Launch of New Ticketing Platform
(ST. HELENA, CA, JULY 24, 2013) -- CellarPass, the leading wine country travel service that helps guests explore, book and share wine country experiences has announced the launch of their new ticketing platform which now offers wineries and event organizers the ability to easily create, manage and promote and sell tickets to their events through the industry’s leading guest management system.
“We spent better part of a year listening to our clients of how we could improve upon the CellarPass platform and many roads led to building a ticketing platform,” said Jonathan Elliman, co-founder and CTO at CellarPass. “By adding the support for ticketing, any organization can take advantage of our large consumer database by being featured on our website, our new ticketing portal, weekly newsletter and a reputation of having a solid and easy-to-use system,” continues Elliman.
“As veteran event producers who have used virtually every online ticketing system conceived,” said Joel Quigley, co-founder and president of Creative Furnace, “we are very impressed with CellarPass’ user interface and the variety of ticketing options and event management tools they’ve created. The fact that their ticketing seamlessly integrates with CellarPass’ online reservation system immediately makes them a top choice for managing wine events.”
“The new ticketing system has made it so easy to promote and sell tickets to our Reserve Cabernet Release party online instead of requiring club members and guests to call us”, Laura Simons, tasting room and hospitality manager at Groth Vineyards & Winery. “The ticketing system’s dashboard is easy to navigate, and shows me clear and concise sales activity and purchaser information which is necessary to properly manage any event,” continues Simons.
With the addition of ticketing to the CellarPass platform, wineries now have the flexibility to manage their events either by offering tickets for purchase or via a reservation. With the embedded, secure and PCI-Compliant credit card processor and gateway, CellarPass eliminates the need for your organization to go through the lengthy underwriting process in order to receive the proper underwriting as to be in compliance with the major card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) for selling tickets to events. The system is completely free to event organizers to utilize the platform.
