University of Georgia Renews Paciolan Partnership

Paciolan's Commitment to College Athletics and Its Strategic Vision Wins UGA's Continued Seal of Approval

IRVINE, CA and ATHENS, GA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) -   Paciolan, the leading provider of ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions in college athletics, announced today that the University of Georgia (UGA) will continue to leverage the company's technology solutions for all of its sporting events by renewing its partnership with the company. UGA's decision to continue working with Paciolan after eight years was based on the company's consistent commitment to meeting the university's growing needs and vision, as well as it proven commitment to college athletics. 

"Paciolan has allowed us to continually evolve while staying true to our model and strategy for our athletics department," said Alan Thomas, associate athletic director for external operations. "The company listens to us, understands what we are trying to accomplish and then offers solutions to help achieve our goals. We look forward to working with them for many years to come."

During its 8-year working relationship, Paciolan has helped UGA achieve many goals. Currently, 95 percent of UGA's 15,000 donors are also season ticket holders, a true testament to the university's efforts when leveraging Paciolan's marketing and fundraising solutions. In fact, more than 70 percent of renewals are done online this year compared to 50 percent in 2006 -- a major accomplishment for the university. For student ticketing, 100 percent is processed via the Internet.
