ShowClix expands into Australia with ticketing’s first cloud-based queuing system

  • By Anthony Fabbricatore | Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Through a partnership with GreenTix, an Australian ticketing company that offers completely eco-conscious event admission solutions, ShowClix is now providing ticketing services to some of the largest music festivals in Australia, including “The Pyramid Rock Festival,” “Meredith Music Festival,” “Rainbow Serpent Festival,” and “The Great Southern Blues Festival.” We kicked off this new venture by selling $1.8 million in tickets within the first 24 hours of launch using our new cloud-backed queuing system, the first of its kind in the ticketing industry.

Several Australian festivals have managed their recent ticket sales using the new system, which scales in real-time according to the demand for tickets, giving ShowClix the ability to handle dramatic increases in website traffic and process an unlimited number of ticket orders simultaneously.

“By hosting the new queuing system, as well as our entire ticketing platform, in the cloud, we’re able to offer our clients a scalable, flexible and reliable solution that is perfect for high-demand events like that of Meredith Festival.”

- Joshua Dziabiak, Chief Executive Officer of ShowClix, on the benefits of the cloud-based ticketing system

“We selected ShowClix as our software platform because of their innovative approach to ticketing. Their system utilizes modern web software technology and cloud-based computing to create an entirely unique and efficient experience for our company to manage our major events and for our ticket buyers to purchase tickets.”

- Doug Meckler, Founding Director of GreenTix, on working with ShowClix

GreenTix operates exclusively in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore through the use of ShowClix’ private-label solution, which offers promoters, venues and organizations a completely customizable, independently branded, web-based ticketing platform.
