CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TicketManager, the leading provider of ticket and invitation management applications for companies of all sizes, has been recognized as one of the 2015 Fastest Growing Companies in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
During the past year, TicketManager has added globally known businesses, such as FedEx, Nissan, Konica Minolta, BMO, and even the United States Olympic Committee, to its already impressive roster of companies, which include AT&T, American Express, MasterCard, Verizon, Wells Fargo, and 50+ Fortune 500 companies. TicketManager will leverage a recent $20 million Series B funding round to continue their rapid growth into new markets and more comprehensive solutions to help their clients get the largest possible return on their entertainment investment possible.
“Every dollar in a company’s budget is competing and must justify itself,” said Tony Knopp, CEO of TicketManager. “Our growth has been driven by the need for our customers to not only manage their client entertainment inventory but to truly understand the business impact – landing new business and retaining the most profitable customers – while complying with complex laws and regulations.”
Now in its 19th year, the Fastest Growing Companies in Los Angeles listing highlights the city’s fastest growing companies based on percentage of revenue growth between 2012 and 2014. In order to qualify for the listing, companies must be privately held, for-profit, in business as of Jan. 1, 2012 and must not be a division or subsidiary of another company. In addition, companies are also required to have at least $5 million in revenue for 2014.
TicketManager integrates seamlessly with its customers’ core enterprise applications, making it easy to create an invitation for a customer and include the tickets, an itinerary, online check-in, and even a guest list to track who is at the event in real time. To that end, TicketManager is already integrated with leading CRM platforms, Salesforce, and Concur, to take the pain out of requesting, obtaining and delivering client entertainment options. The strong reporting and compliance tools also ensure companies are able to track and justify every request.
In addition to the Fastest Growing Private Companies in Los Angeles listing, TicketManager was also recently highlighted as one of the top 100 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal, and also earned a coveted slot as one of the fastest growing private companies in America in this year’s Inc. 5000 listing.
