TicketPony: Ticket sales market website

Quicket is a South African company that helps event organizers to sell tickets online. Due to a strong local competition they came up with the idea of another platform (TicketPony) where people could upload tickets bought through all other platforms and resell them.

    Business challenge

    The main challenge was that each competitor had its own ticket-PDF format and SmartexLab built a module that parses the PDFs of each format, extracts all data from it and creates a PDF of a new TicketPony-format that buyer downloads and shows at the event entrance.

    Delivered solution

    SmartexLab developed a solution that caters for the needs of people who want to sell tickets through the website safely.

    Project results

    The client chose SmartexLab from a variety of other suppliers as we knew how to work with PDFs and other fancy stuff and provided a reasonable quote.

    The TicketPony product helped Quicket to stand out in their area and increased their sales by almost 30% less than 4 months after the app was launched.
