SAN FRANCISCO, May 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ZOZI, the leading company powering the global experience economy, today announced the launch of robust ticketing capabilities for its Software as a Service (SaaS) bookings, payments, and reservations platform, ZOZI Advance.
The ZOZI Advance software platform already helps thousands of activity businesses across nearly 90 countries grow their business, process online bookings, manage complex reservations, and accept EMV mobile payments on iOS devices. In addition, the ZOZI.com marketplace helps consumers easily discover and book thousands of activities.
Today, along with new ticketing capabilities, ZOZI also announces its Android mobile app for businesses, following the recent launch of its iOS app. New capabilities include fully integrated ticket generation and printing, EMV mobile payments via Android devices, as well as many enhancements related to customer and merchant usability. Mobile ticket and voucher redemption tools are fully integrated into ZOZI Advance, enabling merchants to easily sell, scan, modify, and instantly manage customer redemptions, on the go, using the mobile apps.
"We have one simple focus at ZOZI, and that's to power the $200B experience economy end-to-end," said TJ Sassani, CEO and Founder, ZOZI. "The launch into mobile ticketing expands the ZOZI Advance capabilities for current clients, while also enabling us to serve entirely new market segments including attractions, museums, aquariums, zoos, festivals, and many more."
ZOZI's investment into ticketing was first catalyzed through a multi-year partnership to power registrations for Zappos.com Bay to Breakers, San Francisco's iconic annual footrace with more than 50,000 participants per year. The ZOZI Advance platform helped Zappos.com Bay to Breakers reach new registration records.
"ZOZI is a committed team passionate about helping people Get Out There™ and experience the world. We have great admiration for the millions of business owners who show up every day and share their passion with their customers," said TJ Sassani. "Driven by a macro shift towards more meaningful experiences, people spend an estimated $200 billion per year on activities. Travel starts the moment you step out your front door. Therefore, we envision a world where, through technology, we help people discover and book an experience anytime - not just once a year on vacation. This both grows our market, and helps bring happiness to people's lives - and that's what motivates us most of all at ZOZI."
