RepeatSeat Prepares to Launch mCommerce Initiative Using Soapbox Mobile Expertise
CALGARY, ALBERTA- Nov. 9, 2006 - RepeatSeat Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RPS - News), a leading interactive global entertainment services company offering private label ticketing and data management solutions throughout North America is pleased to announce that they have signed a contract with California based Soapbox Mobile, Inc.
Soapbox Mobile's unique industry-leading technology platform, Soapbox Anywhere(TM), combined with cutting-edge creative services and an agency business model, has attracted long term clients such as The House of Blues, Amp'd Mobile, General Motors R(x)Works, SiTV, W Hotels and many others. This Agreement provides RepeatSeat with both the platform and mobile marketing expertise to deliver barcode tickets to cell phones and PDAs.
The RepeatSeat Online Ticketing application together with Soapbox's mobile technology presents consumers with the experience of convenient, customized ticket purchases using only their mobile device. The customer can select events and tickets, complete the purchase process on their cell phone or PDA and have a barcode delivered to their mobile device for redemption at the venue.
The simplicity and accessibility of this paperless transaction adds great value to RepeatSeat's clients' operations. This mCommerce initiative, as well as the many other opportunities that exist for Soapbox and RepeatSeat, will strongly position RepeatSeat to provide value-added services as an entertainment solutions company.
"Mobility is an area where we see many opportunities to enrich our entertainment solutions to clients, and broaden our reach in the entertainment market. Relationships with companies such as Soapbox Mobile allow us to focus on our core competencies while using the expertise of mobile focused companies to enhance our product offerings," noted George Davidson, President of RepeatSeat.
"We are excited to partner with RepeatSeat in providing consumers the latest in event ticket purchasing convenience," said Vlad Edelman, CEO of Soapbox Mobile. "This collaboration is a natural fit for Soapbox, and marks the latest step in the evolution of the cell phone as an always 'on' source for both information and entertainment, and an invaluable tool for ongoing consumer dialogue and loyalty."
Mobility is broadly recognized as an area of growth, with particular appeal to the under-25 crowd who have embraced text messaging and enjoy the cool-factor of new technologies. The over 25 customers are attracted to the convenience of the solutions. Entrance into mobility will allow RepeatSeat to attract new customers and provide enhanced services to current clients by staying on the leading edge of technology.
