University of Memphis Continues Its 28-Year Partnership With Paciolan

IRVINE, CA and MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwire - Dec 9, 2011) - Paciolan, the leading provider of ticketing, marketing, and fundraising solutions in college athletics, announced today that the University of Memphis ("Memphis") will be continuing its 28-year partnership with the company. A perennial powerhouse in college basketball, which they play at FedExForum, and one of the top programs for annual attendance, Memphis has been working with Paciolan since 1983.

"The Paciolan system gives us the freedom to create events and build innovative programs our way," said Bill Lofton, associate athletic director of finance for the University of Memphis. "We also love the customer service we've been provided these past 28 years. Paciolan has always been very responsive and helps us achieve our goals."

Leveraging the Paciolan system, Memphis has been consistently increasing its online ticket sales over the past several years. Contributing to this success is Memphis' online payment plans program, which allows season ticket holders to space out payments for season tickets.

The Paciolan system integrates ticketing with donor data to allow Memphis to maintain priority seating at its athletics venues. It also provides Memphis with the flexibility it needs to facilitate donor-level pre-sales and post-season ticket sales, which save the university time and resources.

"Paciolan allows us to expedite post-season ticket sales by quickly identifying and communicating availability to season ticket holder donors," added Lofton.

"It's been wonderful working with the University of Memphis for almost three decades," said Dave Butler, chief executive officer of Paciolan. "We look forward to helping them achieve their future goals by leveraging our proven ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions."
