Washington State Extends Paciolan Partnership Adds Digital Ticketing for Football/Basketball

University to Go Live With Digital Ticketing for First Time This Fall

IRVINE, CA and PULLMAN, WA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) -  Paciolan, the leading provider of venue enablement ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions in college athletics, announced today that Washington State University has extended its long-term partnership and added the company's full digital ticketing package for football and basketball going live this fall. The Paciolan system helps to positively impact fan behavior by making it faster and easier for fans to purchase their tickets online and then print them at home instead of waiting in long ticket office lines. This also saves the university costs associated with printing and mailing, while streamlining ticket office operations. Additionally, it allows the ticket office to retrieve important marketing background on customers, such as attendance stats, entrance patterns, and no-show data.

"Paciolan's commitment to college athletics and our continued success made the decision to renew our agreement easy," said Leslie Johnson, associate athletic director, business operations, Washington State University. "Taking the next step and implementing an efficient digital ticketing system for our university is exciting given Paciolan's leadership position and powerful software development capabilities. We look forward to working with them for many years to come."

Paciolan's digital ticketing system also improves the season ticket holder's experience by making it easier to transfer unused tickets to a friend electronically. The recipient barcode ensures tickets are valid and delivered to the fans that need them.

"We're honored to be facilitating Washington State's foray into digital ticketing," said Dave Butler, chief executive officer of Paciolan. "By leveraging the many capabilities of our full football and basketball ticketing system, we look forward to helping them achieve their marketing goals."
