Leading ticketing and admissions management software solutions company, Syx Ticketing, is providing ticketing and POS to London’s new Postal Museum.
The announcement comes ahead of the museum’s grand opening later this year.
The Postal Museum has been created to bring five centuries of communications history to life. Artefacts, storytelling and interactive displays will tell the story of what is essentially the first social network.
The development in Central London will encompass exhibition spaces alongside modern research and educational facilities. The highlight for many visitors is likely to be Mail Rail. A 15-minute ride on a special train takes guests through the original subterranean tunnels created a century ago to carry mail across London.
Syx Ticketing will provide its ticketing and POS solutions to the museum’s ticket desk, as well as its retail outlets. In addition, online ticketing, bookings and group bookings will be processed via the cloud-based version of the ReCreateX software solution. This is hosted on the company’s secure data centre.
A Must-Do London Attraction
“From mid-2017 Mail Rail at The Postal Museum will be a must-do attraction in London,” reports Lauren Pattison, Head of Operations at The Postal Museum. “We want to ensure a fantastic experience for our visitors, right down to the buying of tickets. We’re excited to bring Syx Ticketing on board to help achieve that and look forward to a successful partnership.”
Eddie Lee, UK Sales Manager, Syx Ticketing, said the company was delighted to have been chosen by The Postal Museum.
“We will work with the team at The Postal Museum as they embark on their exciting journey,” he added. “By using ReCreateX, both in-house and on the web, they will be able to enhance the visitor experience greatly.”
Syx Ticketing has a growing presence in London. In November, the company was awarded the ticketing and POS contract for five major attractions run by The City of London Corporation. These are the Tower Bridge Exhibition, The Monument, Keats House, Guildhall Art Gallery and the City Information Centre.
