Island Stubs has used technology to give Caribbean event promoters a way to conquer the global market.
By using cutting edge technology, Island Stubs is fast becoming the first choice for Caribbean event promoters, producers and patrons who are seeking electronic ticketing solutions.
Island Stubs uses a modern computer system that manages the ticket inventory of different events. Throughout the system each of their client accounts are integrated with an ecommerce platform; using both the platform and the computer system, Island Stubs is able to manage the accounts of buyers and sellers.
“With the Bar Code Ticketing system the client is able to get comprehensive information on the person buying their tickets. We are able to tell them where the buyer is located, the name of the buyer and the time the person purchased the ticket” – Noelle Nicolls, Director of Island Stubs.
The Bar Code Ticketing system enables Island Stubs to foster greater interaction between the promoter and the patron allowing for increased efficiency in the industry. The data allows the client to collect valuable information that can contribute to the better promotion and planning of future events.
Another great innovation pioneered in the Caribbean by Island Stubs is the ability of the purchaser to use any major credit card or PayPal to purchase their tickets. This is a safer, easier way to pay online. In the case of PayPal; anyone can pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information. This option allows patrons to protect themselves from online dangers such as identity theft.
Available in 190 markets and 17 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global ecommerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages. Island Stubs opens up the market to any Caribbean promoter or producer of events, enabling them to market to a global audience.
There is also flexibility as it relates to the tickets a patron wants to procure. Island Stubs offers ‘will call’ and ‘print at home’ tickets. With ‘will call’ tickets, event patrons have the convenience of purchasing tickets online and collecting them at the gate on the day of the event while ‘print at home’ tickets are purchased online, printed and presented at the event gate for scanning.
Island Stubs has also focused its attention on ensuring that the customer experience is optimized on their site. Island Stubs has a simple site that focuses on ease of use and a ticket transaction can be completed within five minutes with the number of processes climaxing at three to four clicks.
Island Stubs has used technology to give Caribbean events promoters a way to conquer the global market and has leveled the playing field by allowing international patrons greater accessibility to the diverse Caribbean culture.
