UniversityTickets Launches Ticketing and Access Control App for Apple iPod

Blending Barcode and Mag-Stripe Readers, App and Hardware Offer Higher Education Clients Maximum Functionality

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  UniversityTickets, a leader in ticketing and box office technology for colleges and universities, has launched a new ticketing and ticket validation application for the Apple iPod touch.

Enabling wireless authentication of print-at-home tickets, instant validation of student IDs, and tracking of season ticket holders, the system is made possible by a custom 'sled' for Apple's iPod touch. Incorporating a laser barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader along with an extended battery, the unit is the same device used by Apple in its own retail stores.

"We are excited to offer secure, wireless e-ticketing on a device already ubiquitous on college campuses," said Gordon Capreol, UniversityTickets' vice president for new product development. "The iPod touch is a compelling new hardware choice for mobile ticketing software."

For more than a decade, UniversityTickets has partnered with higher education clients to design a ticketing platform that integrates seamlessly with other campus technologies, including student information databases and campus payment systems. "Our e-ticketing app is a natural extension of these offerings because it brings a familiar, easy-to-use interface to the e-ticket validation process," said Capreol.
