New Ticket Buying App From TickPick Ranks Best Buys By Price And Location, Unlike Any Other Ticket Buying App in Marketplace

Upgraded App, New Functions Personalize Choices, Make Ticket Buyers' Lives Easier

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TickPick, the first completely transparent online ticket marketplace, today announced the release of an enhanced version of its groundbreaking app. Updated with a streamlined price alert system, TickPick is the simplest and best way to buy tickets online or via the mobile web, and there are no added fees for ticket buyers. The new app release underscores the growing company's dedication to improving the live entertainment ticketing industry with greater transparency and efficiency.

"At TickPick, we're not just app developers, we're also live event ticket buyers, so we know what a hassle it can be, and we're changing that," said Brett Goldberg, TickPick Co-Founder. "We take the guesswork, frustration and repetitive processes out of buying tickets by giving ticket buyers a safe, user-friendly app that is designed around their needs. TickPick lets users see what events are coming up in their area, choose their seats and make a purchase right away, or name their price to get alerts when the tickets they want become available at their preferred price."

TickPick's fan-friendly Score Report automatically ranks available seats according to the seat location and price, displaying an interactive seating chart on each event page in the app, which users can navigate to view available options. Users will instantly know which seats are better deals than others thanks to the Score Report, and they can use seat rating, quantity and price filters to narrow the selections down further and view all open seats with a given rating in best-to-worst deal order.

Other ticket apps require users to find and select events, and the apps usually don't remember preferences from one visit to the next. TickPick makes it easy by automatically detecting where users are and offering a continuously updated list of top-selling events in their area on the first screen – without annoying popups. When users select an event, TickPick saves their choice to a "Your Favorite Performers" page for greater personalization and faster access next time.  

TickPick's "Last Minute Events" screen gives users a list of live concert, sports and theater events in their area that are taking place within the next few hours. It's great for a spontaneous night out, and non-procrastinators can simply scroll down to view events coming up in the weeks or months ahead. Color-coded dollar signs give users visual cues about available tickets that take into account both price and seat quality. Mobile users can set their price, ticket quality rating and quantity of tickets needed to receive alerts when prices drop to their preferred level.

"We make it as easy as possible for users," Goldberg notes. "When they receive an alert, TickPick takes them right to the screen where they can purchase the tickets for the seats they want at the price they indicated. With TickPick, there's no scrolling through irrelevant offers or reentering information – it's all there in one place, making live event ticket purchases simple."

TickPick offers the ultimate in transparency to ticket sellers too, allowing them to see how their tickets compare with competitors' offers and enabling them to instantly sell to the highest bidder for the lowest fee in the industry – just 10%. With approximately $1 billion in inventory, 350 percent growth year-over-year since the company's launch, and a focus on continuously improving the user experience, TickPick is poised to change the way people buy and sell tickets online.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
