ShoWare Software


 

ShoWare is a cloud-based ticketing platform that allows users to manage and sell tickets through various platforms such as box offices, mobile devices, social media websites, call centers and kiosks. The solution is designed to cater to the needs of theatres, fairs, casinos, arenas and tour services.

Integration with social media websites helps users directly sell tickets from the venue pages on Facebook. ShoWare also has an integrated system for access control that prevents double scanning of tickets and allows re-entry of visitors.

This solution allows users to set their own fees, which can include facility fees, delivery fees, convenience fees, order processing fees and other fees that can either be added in the ticket price or charged separately.

ShoWare has the capability to capture contact and sales information directly from tickets. It also allows users to create configurations for seat mapping that can later be copied or edited. It can integrate with Google Analytics so users can view performance data and analyze ticket sales instantly.

This solution provides 24/7/365 emergency support to all clients.

Having a system that is user friendly but is able to handle subscription packages, flex series, single tickets and group sales transactions is integral to our daily business and ShoWare does that well.

If you have a strong comfort level with technology, and insist on having control over your functions (pricing codes, online fees, passwords, images, seating chart changes, custom scaling, etc.), then this product is an excellent match. The ShoWare team is progressive, creative, responsive, and understand the day-to-day challenges of the Box Office.

I say almost mainly because as all grown ups know, nothing is actually perfect. However Showare does come close in many ways. It's overall a user friendly product, easily teachable to use to ever changing staff if your a University. Like all web based ticketing systems the adjustments that you may need to make if an error is made in certain modules can be a bit frustrating. This is where Showare's 5 Star Customer Service shines through. Not only is the account management team knowledgeable , efficient, and friendly. The company as a whole is firmly dedicated to improving the product based on the actual needs of their clientele. I find that very refreshing. Although not all input is able to be incorporated. Showare's production team will keep it in mind for future releases and you may be very pleasantly surprised to see your venue idea added to a broader upgrade feature. Overall a great value and a worthy investment for venues of any size.

ShoWare, Two Years In

We've just finished year two of ShoWare after transitioning from a completely offline ticketing system. ShoWare revolutionized the way we collect information about our guests. It feels like we've only scratched the surface of the amount of detail we can utilize.
We are a general admission daily attraction, and so unlike most of ShoWare's usual clientele. In that regard, they have been great at working with us and helping us adapt the system to our needs. They are quick to offer solutions and check up to see how things are going. Any functionality problems we've had have been quickly solved.
With that in mind, the ease of use of ShoWare for us as a general admission attraction suffers a bit- the amount of bending and adapting we've had to do to make ShoWare work for our needs has created a steep learning curve for Box Office staff as some of the functionality is not necessarily intuitive for what we do. As with any system that's not custom made, there are functions we would wish for but that's to be expected.
We're looking forward to the next year of ShoWare.

ShoWare ticketing has allowed flexibility in the way we operate our box office. Everything from year-round events, gate admission bundled with Grandstand shows, and specialty events within our Spring and State Fairs. There have been a few hiccups jumping from an older version to the current versions based on our customized needs but we are always able to work on better possible solutions to fit our business. I want to give a shout out to my project manager, Heather, for always taking the time to address our concerns, testing possible solutions and being a pleasure to work with!

ShoWare is all web based which gives an advantage many other ticketing providers haven't mastered yet. A robust back-end user interface that's also user friendly makes ShoWare easy to get up and running in very little time. Furthermore, their customer service and support has always been top notch, especially for new users to the system. Even their 24hr support line has been extremely helpful in getting me the answers I need when I need them...NOW! (and you know how that is; on event night when everything is happening at once) You're in good hands when you're working with the ShoWare team.

ShoWare give my business everything I could ask for in a ticketing software and much more. For a small but flexible venue, ShoWare gives us the ability to have multiple seat maps and forced table sales, eliminating odd tickets and lost revenue.

Simply, their customer service is a relationship. If you have a question, or issue, you pick up the phone and within minute you are speaking to your account representative who is familiar with you, your venue and your needs.

This software has left nothing and is continuously being enhanced. Our website integration was as smooth as we could have ever imagined and the affordability is appreciated.

I have been using ShoWare for nearly 3 years and have not once had a negative experience with the system. If there have been any difficulties or glitches they are fixed quickly and without complaint. Our company has often been asked how we would improve the system and our suggestions are always considered and more often than not implemented. Overall, this is the best ticketing system I have ever used.

I LOVE our Showare ticketing system! I receive nothing but rave reviews from our patrons on a regular basis. The ease in navigating the site and especially the ability from them to select their own seats online 24/7 is what I hear about the most. My true appreciation is for their technical support. If my manager isn't available there is always someone to my rescue! I promote Showare whenever & wherever possible! I will be forever grateful to our sister organization for their recommendation of Showare!

Washington State Fair sells gate admission as well as ride packages online through ShoWare and it works very well. The concert tickets are also sold on the system but customers get confused by the basket. We demand more than other clients on ShoWare for various purposes, i.e. the concerts include gate admission or we pair with discount retailers, so often times we have to come up with our own work around. However, the accounting in ShoWare for the most part is accurate. The ShoWare team is helpful too.

We had great help from Sid getting everything going in quite a short order last spring for our playoff season. Once we were set up and operating, everything has been smooth sailing since then. We've had to call for help a few times and the staff were always prompt to help with any issues we were having.
