Why We Prefer the Benefits of Licensing VMT

Cost effectiveness
Cost effectiveness

By managing your live events better and ensuring higher occupancy rates, you can expect to see an improvement in your sales numbers. Our solution is based on the number of venues, not seats, and it's more cost-effective than other solutions currently on the market. 

Better performance
Better performance

Third-party services currently host ticket sales for a great many events. High-volume ticket sales for someone else’s event could inadvertently slow down sales for your events. With licensed VMT, you don't need to wait for a third-party service to implement changes. You can do it yourself.

Greater security
Greater security

Self-hosting means you aren't opening up your inventory to a third party or inadvertently sharing information about your events or seating operations. All API connections between your primary and reserved seating systems remain confidential.

No issues with connectivity
No issues with connectivity

Once your server is up, the tool and your inventory will remain up. You don't have to worry about someone else's servers going down or connectivity issues. All your data is at hand.

Increased reliability

All components for the venue mapping tool remain within the same operations architecture, disaster recovery, and DevOps management.
