“Working with Future Ticketing has brought enormous benefits to The Balmoral Show. The Future Ticketing system ensures a smooth entry for our customers on show day, the system tackles the issues we had previously such as hosting a large volume of cash on-site, long purchase queues, access control and how best to insulate from the economic impact of bad weather.
For the Balmoral Staff, we can report each day of our event what customers have attended using daily tickets or flexible tickets. Using the Future Ticketing cash desk functionality and clover car payment units we can cleanly record and report the income and attendee data for each day.”
Theresa Morrissey, Finance Director
