DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Texas Rangers announced TicketManager as the Club's official Corporate Ticket Management partner providing ticket management technology and tools to corporate ticket holders to manage and re-sell tickets.
"The Rangers are committed to providing the best experience to our partners and customers," said Jim Cochrane, Senior Vice President, Partnerships and Client Services. "Together with TicketManager, our fans will have the very best tools and technology to get the most from their suites, premium seats and season tickets."
Rangers corporate customers can now use TicketManager’s convenient and simple tech to centralize their ticket inventory—including tickets for all other teams and events throughout the DFW Metroplex—seamlessly managing requests, distributing tickets to staff and guests, and tracking usage in real time through reports on which tickets were transferred, to whom and whether they were scanned in venue.
"We're excited to be a part of this historic partnership - the first of its kind in Major League Baseball," said TicketManager CEO and Co-Founder Tony Knopp. "The Texas Rangers know baseball drives business for companies of all sizes and are at the forefront of innovation in working with their best customers."
In addition, Rangers partners will be able to recapture the value of any unused tickets by using TicketManager to sell unused tickets on the secondary market using powerful pricing tools to assure the best return without having to take on the work of listing and pricing tickets. Rangers customers will also be able to share their Dallas area tickets for all sports with other companies in the secure TicketManager All Access Community.
“Companies are focused on ticket utilization and proving the ROI more now, than they ever have,” added Troy Tutt, Head of Partnerships for TicketManager. “Forward thinking teams, like the Rangers, are recognizing there are resources they can provide to continue to separate themselves in market.”
The Texas Rangers are the first Major League Baseball team to partner with TicketManager. The company will be announcing a number of new partnerships across sports leagues in the coming weeks.
