HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ExtremeTix, a leader in ticketing technology and entertainment services, today announced the rollout of an improved ticket purchase experience for clients' events.  

The new experience, suitable for all sized events including General Admission (GA) and reserved seating, takes the best practices from around the web and makes it easy for potential ticket buyers to find and buy tickets to their favorite events. This improved ticket-buying experience complements ExtremeTix's existing suite of social sharing tools built into the ticketing platform and works seamlessly across mobile devices.

Enhancements range from providing maps of event locations to bread crumbing the purchase steps to making the entire ticket transaction much easier for ticket buyers to navigate and purchase tickets. And with the built-in social sharing tools on the ExtremeTix platform, those ticket buyers are clients' best salespeople, sharing their event participation and ticket purchases across more than two dozen social media platforms. Their friends then have an easy way to purchase tickets to the same event using ExtremeTix.

"We're thrilled about these great-looking ticket pages that simplify online ticket buying at select NHRA events for our fans," said Gary Raasch, director of marketing and client services at the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). "We know we have one of the most secure ticketing platforms under the hood, but these enhancements will help our fans more easily get to our races that utilize the ExtremeTix platform."

In addition to the NHRA, all other ExtremeTix clients will benefit from the new purchase flow. This coupled with social share prompts along the purchase path let prospective ticket buyers know exactly where they are in the purchase process and what's coming next. This has the effect of producing a more informed consumer who is more likely to complete their transaction and share it with their friends. 

"We listened to our clients and watched how people bought tickets on our system before making these upgrades," said Deven Nongbri, vice president of marketing at ExtremeTix. "Combine those enhancements with best practices across the most profitable ecommerce sites, and our clients will see the benefits of these upgrades immediately. We're in the business of selling tickets and these new features make it easier than ever for our clients to sell out their events."
