Ticketfly, Inc., the fastest-growing independent ticketing and social marketing platform, and Intellitix, the global market leader in RFID access control systems for live events, have announced a non-exclusive partnership that will see software developed to improve interoperability between both platforms. As part of the partnership, Ticketfly will offer Intellitix RFID services for live events to existing clients, while Intellitix will develop specific plug-ins to improve communication between both systems.
Intellitix activated one million RFID chips at festivals in North America this summer, and earlier this month opened an office in London, UK, to serve the European market. Ticketfly, which launched Facebook integration in September, offers event promoters and venues next-generation ticketing and powerful website and social marketing tools.
“We are happy to be able to help Ticketfly better service their clients using proven RFID technology,” says Intellitix head Serge Grimaux. “As we’ve done with other ticketing companies, this software development allows Ticketfly to offer our next generation RFID solutions such as secure access control, social media integration and cashless payment. This is a fantastic step in continuing to make Intellitix a ubiquitous platform that all promoters and music fans can benefit from.”
“Ticketfly is committed to partnering with the best to provide our clients with a true end-to-end festival ticketing solution,” added Dan Teree, Ticketfly co-founder and COO. “We view Intellitix as the premier RFID provider in the market and are thrilled to be working together to provide our respective clients with a seamless integrated experience.”
