The University of Tulsa Continues Its 19-Year Partnership With Paciolan

Converts to Paciolan's Fully Hosted Ticketing Solution and Implements Access Management

IRVINE, CA and TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  Paciolan, the leading provider of ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions in college athletics, announced today that The University of Tulsa (TU) will continue its 19-year partnership with Paciolan by converting to Paciolan's fully hosted ticketing system. Completely automated, the hosted system will increase TU's ticket processing speed and streamline sales for the university's Golden Hurricane fans -- all while satisfying Payment Card Industry (PCI) system requirements. Additionally, TU will be implementing Paciolan's Access Management and digital ticketing solutions. TU has been working with Paciolan since 1991.

"Paciolan has consistently provided us with the best technology solutions and customer service to meet our needs and those of our Golden Hurricane fans," said Lawrence (Bubba) Cunningham, athletic director of The University of Tulsa. "Their industry-leading products, services, and dedication to college athletics make Paciolan the perfect partner for Tulsa Athletics."

In addition to satisfying PCI system requirements, Paciolan's hosted system will help TU protect its data with automatic backups and built-in security. The hosted environment also allows the ticket office to reduce hardware and infrastructure costs.

"Paciolan's Access Management and digital ticketing system allows us to conform to industry standards and provide better customer service for our Hurricane fans," said Shawn Pfannenstiel, director of athletic business and ticket operations for The University of Tulsa. "We are excited about offering our fans several innovative digital ticketing services."

The company's Access Management system allows TU to track the attendance of fans, while increasing game day efficiencies and the overall experience for Golden Hurricane fans. TU is also able to provide its fans with the option to print tickets at home, which helps decrease will call and wait times.

"We have been partners with TU athletics for a very long time and it's exciting to help them evolve and achieve their goals through our hosted system and digital ticketing solutions," said Dave Butler, chief executive officer of Paciolan. "We look forward to working with them for many more years to come."
