Gateway Ticketing Systems has welcomed mobile ticketing platform, Tiqets, to its Galaxy Connect™ community.

Tiquets is the latest distributor to opt for the improved guest experience offered by Gateway’s cloud-based platform.

The Dutch company, based in Amsterdam, provides live mobile tickets to museums, attractions and entertainment through its direct-to-consumer channels and extensive distributor network.

“The Galaxy Connect integration has been a very smooth process,” confirmed Maarten Raaijmakers, Tiqet’s Co-Founder & Chief Supply Officer.

“From Tiqets’ experience with automated connections, the devil really is in the details. The state of the technical platform, documentation, as well as the personal communication with the integration team, gives us great confidence in our cooperation and the platform.”

Galaxy Connect does what the name suggests – it connects attractions with distributors and online travel agencies, enabling the selling of mobile gate-ready tickets. This delivers an instant benefit to guests who no longer waste time in lengthy box office queues.

Scott Lobaugh, Gateway’s Director of Business Development, praised Tiqet’s forward-thinking ‘mobile-first mentality’:

“Tiqets ‘gets’ the issues and pain points with the traditional supplier/distributor relationship,” he said.

“I believe the rapid growth of their company shows that suppliers and consumers want real-time mobile delivery of their tickets. Galaxy Connect allows them to execute on this mobile delivery strategy while quickly growing their supplier base, all with a single integration.”

Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc. is the world leader in ticketing software, admission control and revenue generation for a variety of industries. These include attractions such as theme parks, water parks, tours, zoos, aquariums, museums and historic sites.

Galaxy Connect™ is the latest extension of the company’s renowned Galaxy product suite. The next-generation integration platform puts an end to costly voucher processes and increases sales through a community of suppliers and distributors.
