accesso Attracts Apple Users by Integrating its Passbook Feature

TMCnet Contributor
 
Apple's (News - Alert) new iOS6 operating system, which will be available to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users this fall as a free software update, is also including a Passbook app, which allows users to get all their passes in one place.
 
accesso, which delivers powerful, fully-hosted ticketing and commerce solutions is making an effort to keep one step ahead of many other travel industry suppliers by adapting its platform to support Apple's new Passbook feature.

 
This new feature will enable consumers to import ticket purchases and all their boarding passes and tickets from various attractions directly into their Passbook app. accesso's online and on-the-go ticketing solutions support top attractions across North America from theme parks and water parks to zoos, concerts and sporting events.
 
With mobile phone users storing an increasing number of barcodes and passes on their iPhones, Apple's latest enhancement will automatically display relevant passes on the screen when users enter a specified location. The app also alerts users about flight changes and delays at airports.
 
By integrating Passbook into its platform, accesso is making it easy for its users to easily access digital versions of boarding passes, loyalty rewards and theme park, concert or sporting event tickets in one convenient iPhone (News - Alert) app.
 
'Mobile commerce has become a vital sales strategy for theme parks and other attraction venues, not to mention a guest expectation,' said Steve Brown, CEO at accesso.
 
He also observed that as iPhone users would be eager to leverage this dynamic new technology, accesso had worked aggressively to integrate with the new operating system well in advance, so that there would be no delay in leveraging Apple's new Passbook feature from day one.
 
All accesso's solutions are fully hosted and supported 24/7 to ensure that users always have a good experience. The solutions are noted for their easy-to-use designs with seamlessly integrated revenue driving features.
 
ESCORT Inc., designer, marketer and manufacturer of the world's best premium automotive accessories, is demonstrating its all-new ESCORT SmartRadar Bluetooth Enabled Radar/Laser Detector, which has been designed to easily connect with ESCORT Live, ESCORT's multi-award winning ticket protection network.
