When our new clients at Hockinson School District in Vancouver WA asked us for a list of ways to use eReserve Ticketing, even we were surprised at the number we came up with!
Many of our school partners (and non-school partners) approach eReserve Ticketing with one ticket application in mind, such as football or theater. Soon, however, they start coming up with other ways to take advantage of eReserve Ticketing’s ability to add convenience, shorten lines, increase revenue, and make better reports. Some of these are quite creative!
Here is a partial list:
eReserve Ticketing works equally well for football and soccer stadiums, basketball gyms, wrestling rooms, and natatoriums. Wherever you find organized sports, you can use our system for general and reserved seating.
For sports or theater, why not give your ticket holders the option to lock in season tickets. We have an easy 3-step process to do that, and ways to allow seatholders to self-renew going forward.
Whether plays, concerts, or any kind of performance, eReserve Ticketing can turn your ticket sales and box office into a smooth-running operation. Many of our schools discover they can have a large percentage of their revenues in the bank before the night of the first performance!
One of our clients wanted a way for students attending prom to pay for their tickets online while reserving a seat on a bus transporting them to the dance. We came up with a custom layout that let students choose their bus seats and pay, all online, all in advance!
Often there is limited seating for graduation ceremonies, especially when moved indoors for weather or other reasons. Schools can use eReserve Ticketing to limit the number of seats available to families and guests. The system works equally well for events such as these that are “free” to the public.
Another creative way to streamline the process is moving the reserving of parking spaces online. Over the summer, students can log on and pay for their space. Then during school registration it is a simple matter to present their ticket and pick up their permit.
BONUS! One school gives students the option to pay a premium for the privilege of decorating their own parking space. The extra fee goes to a school activity fund, and eReserve Ticketing helps keep it all organized.
Meets & Tournaments
With our option for using wristbands, schools can harness eReserve Ticketing to sell tickets for multi-day events. One nonprofit uses it to control access to rocket launches at a remote site. NOTE: You can require ticket holders to agree to terms & conditions, as a way to adhere to insurance and FERPA guidelines.
eReserve Ticketing is a handy way to let parents sign their children up online for participation in summer and holiday camps. They pay and reserve online, then you generate a roster for the instructor.
With our online “store,” it is a simple matter to set up a place online to collect advance sales for school yearbooks and similar items. Takes all those lines of students and piles of cash out of the office.
One school finds eReserve Ticketing the perfect solution for students to schedule and pay for a variety of tests, such as college prep, advanced placement, and so on. One less thing for an already busy office or counseling staff to handle.
Many clients don’t realize eReserve Ticketing offers an online “store” where they are able to post and sell a limited number of spirit items. The process for buying store items is the same as the process for reserving tickets.
It is a simple matter to add a “Donate” button to a school web site. People wanting to support a scholarship, fundraiser, or good cause can simply click on the button and choose their level of donation.
Fundraisers & Festivals
Many elementary schools sponsor carnivals, dinners, and festivals to raise funds for buying “extras” for their campus. Instead of sending kids door to door, move ticket sales online. This is not only safer and more convenient, it gives schools and parent organizations a way to keep track of funds and avoid having children handle large sums of money.
Every school has some type of foundation. eReserve Ticketing works just as well for their galas, dinners, fundraisers, and scholarships.
While this is not an “event,” eReserve Ticketing allows schools and booster organizations to solicit and sell advertising space on every ticket and checkout screen. This extra revenue goes straight to the organization, with no handling fee from eReserve Ticketing.
Remember, ALL of these uses are included when you sign the agreement with eReserve Ticketing. We have NO LIMITS-NO MINIMUMS-NO MAXIMUMS on number of events, number of tickets, number of users, or number of computers.
P.S. Send us your creative and successful ideas for uses of eReserve Ticketing. We’ll share with our growing number of users.
