Gateway Ticketing Systems launches Blueshift online store

Gateway Ticketing Systems, a leading provider of admission control systems, has launched Blueshift, a new online store to allow attractions to sell timed and capacity tickets.

Gateway Ticketing Systems is pleased to announce its new online store for attractions, called Blueshift. This is designed to make it easy for operators to sell timed and capacity tickets as the begin to reopen with new COVID-19 safety procedures.

The new solution will help attractions to control how many visitors are inside their venues, keeping a limit on numbers in order to keep guests safe.

Blueshift

As they welcome guests once again, attractions are facing new challenges following the pandemic. Blueshift is a simple solution that lets them sell tickets online while easily managing the number of guests on-site.

“Many venues in our industry don’t sell tickets online, or they already do, but they’ve never had the need to capacity manage their location,” says Michael Andre, President and CEO of Gateway.

“Additionally, they may not have the personnel or financial resources to manage such a system. Blueshift online store is for them. We’ve developed a simple online store that can manage the absolute ticketing necessities for an attraction in a post-COVID world. Online sales can be up-and-running in a short period of time. No expertise is needed, nor the adoption of any software.”

Capacity management

Blueshift allows operators to manage capacity, taking into account the needs and restrictions of their own spaces as well as local COVID-19 safety regulations. Attractions can set a visit limit for each day, half-day, hour, etc. as well as staggering entries throughout the day.

For guests, the process is also easy to use. After buying a ticket online, they will get an email to confirm, containing a mobile-optimised ticket.

Operators also benefit from two auto-generated daily reports, meaning that they cant track daily sales and view guests lists. Gate attendants simply need to cross-check visitor’s tickets against the daily guest list report.

“And here’s one of the truly unique aspects of Blueshift,” says Peter Wolf, Director of Sales and Marketing at Gateway Ticketing Systems. “Gateway manages the entire process for you. You work with our representative and complete an intentionally designed questionnaire, we configure and stand-up your store and ticket-types without additional work or expertise needed on your end.

“Plus, Blueshift was built from the ground up specifically for attractions by people who have worked at attractions. You benefit from our 32 years of experience handling ticketing for the industry.”

A reliable online store

This new solution from Gateway is fully brandable, allowing attractions to add their own logo and colours to both the store and the e-tickets. Operators can also use their own merchant or PayPal account to collect payments.

The company is offering a set amount of hours each month where attractions can access support, ask questions, work through any issues and make changes to the store.

“We realize there’s a need in the industry for a reliable and affordable online store to sell tickets with only the features and functions attractions need, and nothing else,” says Andre. “Blueshift will help venues transition into our industry’s new normal and tackle the challenges ahead of them in a profitable and sustainable way.”
