LAKE MARY, Fla., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- accesso, a leading provider of attraction ticketing, will be one of the first travel industry suppliers to adapt its ticketing platform to support Passbook, a new mobile device feature in Apple's new iOS6 operating system.
Passbook will allow iPhone users who upgrade to the new Apple iOS6 operating system to collect and more easily access digital versions of boarding passes, loyalty rewards and theme park, concert or sporting event tickets in one convenient iPhone app. With mobile phone users storing an increasing number of various barcodes and entitlements, Apple's latest enhancement will simplify and streamline the process for users of its renowned iPhone device.
