PITTSBURGH, June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- YinzCam, the world's preeminent sports app developer, announced a partnership today with Ticketek, the leading ticketing company in Australia, that will introduce a native integration across multiple mobile apps, enhancing the ticketing and venue experience for sports fans down under.
The new SDK, developed jointly by YinzCam and Ticketek, will be embedded within league, team and venue apps throughout Australia and New Zealand, to provide fans with single sign-on functionality. When fans open their favorite team or venue apps, they can also be automatically logged into their MyTicketek account to manage all aspects of their ticketing activities, including seamless in-app ticket purchasing.
The mobile ticketing innovations rolled out through the new partnership have the potential to impact millions of fans of rugby union, rugby league, cricket, Australian rules football and basketball.
"Ticketek partnered with YinzCam because they are the world leader in creating applications designed especially for sports fans," said Geoff Jones, CEO of Ticketek's parent company, TEG. "YinzCam's mobile sports apps have been downloaded over 45 million times and its platform has sent over 10 billion push-notifications to fans. That says everything about YinzCam's insights, user experience and technology.
"We are delighted to create a seamless and enhanced experience for fans using their mobile apps and making the live event experience so much better."
The new native SDK integration will also include 3D interactive seat maps, real-time attendance tracking, ticket purchase through TouchID and ticketing-driven personalization.
"We are excited to partner with Ticketek to provide their ticketing features in a native, mobile integration with single sign-on and data capabilities to be embedded into league and club apps in the Australasia market," said Priya Narasimhan, CEO and Founder of YinzCam.
