Box Office Software Puts Fans in Seats Without Leaving the House

SeatAdvisor, Inc. Integrates HTML Seat Maps and Unveils Panoramic Views

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2013) - Today SeatAdvisor, Inc. released two significant enhancements to their web-based box office software, SABO (SeatAdvisor Box Office), once again establishing the industry veteran as a leader in online ticketing software. An implementation of new HTML seat maps for all venues served and the debut of a feature branded as 360° Pano sets the stage for a highly advanced, interactive seat selection process unparalleled by any other system or vendor. Venues and organizations operating SABO can now grant audiences the ability to select specific seats to events regardless of the operating system or mobile device the patron is using during the online transaction. 360° Pano further enhances the user experience by providing high-resolution, 360 degree views of the venue's interior as visible from the seat location.

SeatAdvisor clients aiming to take advantage of 360° Pano will have the option of securing panoramic photos of their venues independently or by enlisting the services of 360iTours, a professional panoramic photography company based in San Diego, CA who has partnered with SeatAdvisor. Once the images are delivered to SeatAdvisor's Creative Department, they will be uploaded and available to patrons searching for tickets through the venue's website.

Additionally, 360iTours will publish SeatAdvisor 360º panos to TourWrist -- the leading panorama ("pano") platform enabling consumers to record, view and share 360-degree pano images with social media outlets via smartphones, tablets and computers. The SeatAdvisor 360º Panos on TourWrist will include clickable links -- PanoSpots™ -- that enable 'TourWrists' to book tickets via SABO from the TourWrist (iOS and Android) app, 360iTours app and TourWrist.com

Creative & Marketing Director, Omar Morales, explained, "What's considered best available for one person might be entirely different for another. Consumers appreciate options, and we're confident the addition of 360° Pano to SABO will keep the seat selection process exciting and fresh for the millions of ticket buyers we serve world-wide." 

Panoramic views are new for the system, however Java™ based seat maps as well as static photos of venue seats and their views of the stage have always been a part of the company's foundation. As such, the unveiling of the new HTML seat maps represents a milestone for the company. VP of Engineering for SeatAdvisor, Chris Snyder explained, "Converting the maps to HTML permits us to extend to clients many more customizations and options throughout the online sales flow than ever before. The technology is also non-discriminatory, enabling patrons to purchase tickets from the browser or device of their choice. We are thrilled to demonstrate the improved functionality, performance and speed of SABO as a result of the switch."
