Cygnus eTransactions Group, Inc. announced it has launched a new mobile ticketing system, marketed under the brand name ceWireless(TM). John Stuart Productions in Las Vegas is deploying ceWireless mobile ticketing to provide remote box office and concierge services, enabling mobile agents to sell over 80 top shows and events to consumers with a user-friendly, handheld point-of-sale device.
“As a producer, I must look for creative and economical ways to bring my show to the people. I am excited to be working with Cygnus and Prestige Ticketing to provide my customers this convenience with a state-of-the-art ticketing system,” said John Stuart.
Ticket reservations and credit card transactions are processed in real-time, with connectivity to Cygnus’ datacenter provided by WiFi, Bluetooth or GPRS. Consumers can collect their tickets immediately at one of 12 conveniently located ticketing kiosks marketed under the brand name ceOsk(R). Cygnus provides products and services to John Stuart through its Las Vegas Marketing Alliance Partner, Prestige Ticketing, a subsidiary of Prestige Travel, Inc.
Cygnus spokesperson Todd Isakson stated “ceWireless (mobile ticketing) is a revolution in entertainment marketing, revenue enhancement and customer service. It enables our clients to promote and sell their products anywhere, at any time, and is more convenient than forcing customers to find their box office.”
