Shubert Ticketing announces today the acquisition of Choice Ticketing Systems, an innovative, fast-growing company based in Boulder, Colorado.
“Choice Ticketing Systems has emerged as a significant player in the industry,” stated David Andrews, Senior Vice President of Shubert Ticketing. “We are thrilled to have them onboard. The potential innovations we can quickly achieve by merging our technologies are very exciting.”
Shubert Ticketing is a leading provider of high speed, transaction based ticketing services for entertainment venues across the country. The combination of ChoiceCRM with Shubert Ticketing’s advanced integrated platforms and partners — Telecharge, FIT Sales, Plum Benefits/Tickets at Work, and Audience Rewards — will create a comprehensive ticketing solution meeting the needs of multiple entertainment verticals and venues.
Doug Crothers, founder and past president of Choice Ticketing Systems said “With 25 years of service to performing arts nationwide, it’s gratifying and an honor that Shubert has chosen us to join forces to expand market reach and integrate Choice’s key technologies into the Shubert STAR system.”
The integration of Shubert and Choice technologies will accelerate advancements in customer relationship management, increase customized platform options for season subscription operations and offer comprehensive fundraising tools. An added benefit is the capability to leverage geographical location to service niche marketplaces.
Robert Sandford, CEO of Choice Ticketing stated, “Working directly with David Andrews and Shubert’s key strategists is a great match for us. Together we will expand nationally into adjacent verticals and raise the bar in the creation of greater patron relationship platforms.”
