New Vendini Website Manager Application Lets Novices Create & Update Mobile-First WebsitesResponsive Sites Increase Online Sales by 20 Percent While Automating Event Publishing (August 12, 2014)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Vendini, the company that makes the business of live events simple, today announced the availability of Vendini Website Manager, an easy-to-use application to create visually stunning, mobile-first websites that save venues time and money while increasing ticket sales by more than 20 percent.
Website Manager is revolutionary because it lets novice users create websites that are easily and quickly updated and optimized for all devices, whether patrons are buying entertainment tickets via their phones, tablets, Macs or PCs. There is literally no HTML or web design experience necessary.
According to Vendini, 40 percent of ticket sales occur online, making it crucial for venues to have websites that look good on every device, with easy reading and navigation and little need for resizing, panning or scrolling by patrons to make a purchase.
"The box office experience is no longer about being tethered to a computer," said Mark Tacchi, Vendini President and CEO. "We help our customers sell to an increasingly mobile patron who wants a quick and seamless buying experience -- both online and in the box office."
Vendini gives venues one integrated ticketing, sales and marketing solution that includes event creation, Facebook sharing and website management -- all easily completed in a matter of minutes without a web designer or programmer.
"Vendini Website Manager eliminates one of the most time consuming aspects of venue websites: updating events," said Tacchi. "With Vendini, events are dynamically populated on your website once they are created so there's no duplicate entry process, no time spent on HTML updates, and you can start selling tickets immediately as events are created."
The Villages Increases Online Sales
The Villages, a retirement community near Orlando with 108,000 residents and 12 entertainment venues that feature year-round live entertainment, saw its online sales skyrocket within a month of launching Vendini Website Manager.
"In addition to the increase in online ticket sales, our website administration is simple -- it's no longer a headache to maintain," said Brian Russo, Box Office Manager for The Villages Entertainment. "Most importantly, our site looks great and is easy to use on tablets and cell phones. Our population is tech savvy despite the notion that they're not because they're older. Patrons love the simplified online buying experience Vendini provides."
