Tiqets is offering its Booking Engine commission-free to museums and attractions to help venues in their recovery with minimal investment.
The newly upgraded technology includes features like timeslot-based booking and online reservations that can help venues to comply with new government safety and hygiene measures following months of closure.
The Tiqets Booking Engine is a full, white-label ticketing solution that can easily be embedded on a venue’s website. It has recently been updated with new options including time slot based-ticketing, dynamic pricing for off-peak days, and free reservations for members. Venues are able to manage capacity, time slots, and visitor communication without any heavy lifting from their staff.
These new features are designed based on feedback from museums and attractions on how to help visitors feel comfortable and confident when returning to culture.
Luuc Elzinga, President of Tiqets, said: "Now as museums and attractions are struggling to reopen and facing tough challenges in their economic recovery, we feel it is our responsibility to help them bounce back and offer customers a safe way to enjoy culture again. Tiqets’ strength is in our technology, specifically building out better self-service technology to make it easier to onboard to our platform and delivering the best possible safe customer experience."
The refreshed Booking Engine allows visitors to museums’ and attractions’ websites to buy online tickets in their native language and using local payment and currency options. This makes purchasing easy for both tourists and those now visiting museums and attractions in their hometowns.
For smaller museums and attractions that do not necessarily have the resources to invest in web development for a post-pandemic world, the Booking Engine can make it possible for them to open their doors once it is safe to do so, according to Tiqets.
The technology can be used without any commission charges, only payment processing fees, until the venue’s traffic returns to pre-pandemic rates.
