Entertainment ticketing business, CrowdSurge selects Ventrica to manage fast growth in bookings
Ventrica, an outsourced contact centre has been selected by CrowdSurge, a global online independent ticketing company, to manage direct bookings for a wide range of music and other entertainment events.
Wanted a more cost-effective method of meeting expected growth plans
CrowdSurge’s UK General Manager, Noel Edwards, explains:- “We originally had a small in-house contact centre team who handled ticket sales at our headquarters in London, but with space at a premium and staff overheads increasing, we were looking for a more cost-effective method of meeting our expected growth plans.”
Established in 2008 with offices in London, New York, Nashville and Los Angeles, CrowdSurge has grown to be the market leader in Direct to Consumer ticketing, by supporting artists, brands, promoters and venues across the globe. By the end of 2013, CrowdSurge is expected to have secured a number of national contracts with major brands, resulting in a steep increase in volume of ticket-sale enquiries by phone.
“…rival companies were not prepared to offer a bureau service..”
Noel continues, “We decided that using an outsourcer would be perfect for our needs. We chose Ventrica because we instinctively liked the way the company operated, they were competitive and flexible with its service offering. For example, rival companies were not prepared to offer a bureau service until Crowdsurge had reached a certain level of business while Ventrica was happy to work with us and accommodate our needs and react to growth accordingly. Ventrica understood how younger ventures operate and the typical challenges they face. We felt the relationship between us and Ventrica was a good fit, and they would respond well to our customer base.”
Ventrica will work on a number of major events, taking calls for ticket sales before processing the booking, in conjunction with CrowdSurge’s e-commerce software and hardware solutions, and seeing it through to completion. Additionally, the outsourcer will also provide real-time reporting on campaigns.
“We found the transition from our existing platform, to working with Ventrica, to be completely seamless and painless, and are looking forward to a long, on-going relationship”
