OvationTix overview

OvationTix is a cloud-based ticketing software designed for the performing arts industry, suitable for both not-for-profit and commercial uses, including small and large theaters, performing arts centers, music venues, museums, festivals, events, and exhibitions. Users can manage ticket prices, sell individual event tickets, subscriptions, and memberships, receive one-off and recurring donations, send email updates to patrons, track and analyze patron activities, generate reports, and more.

OvationTix offers dynamic pricing capabilities which enable users to specify ticket prices for different events, seating areas, and individual seats. Seats can be moved, and ticket prices can be changed even when the show is on sale. Tickets can be sold online through customizable web pages, or through OvationTix’s in-house call center. Users can customize their ticketing page with their own branding, layout, and text, and design their own ticket layouts and receipts. A range of subscription and membership packages can be offered to patrons, with varying levels of flexibility, and free or discounted tickets can be presented in return for donations above a certain level. Donors can make one-off donations, and monthly, quarterly, or annual recurring donations which are collected automatically by the built-in automated billing system.

OvationTix includes a fully-integrated CRM, enabling users to capture and record data including attendance, demographic data, donor, member, and subscriber histories, tasks, notes, and more. Segmented lists can be created for fundraising, communications, and marketing, and automated pre- and post-show emails can be sent with tailored messages to update patrons and cultivate relationships. Conversions and ROI can be tracked in real time, and users can generate itemized sales reports and analyze sales trends over time.

We've been using OvationTix since its inception. With dozens of shows throughout the year, including many for which we function purely as Presenters, the functionality of OvationTix has been crucial to our success. Our presented productions can monitor and see the success of their shows, and we can manage the overall process. We enjoy working with OvationTix so much that we began using it to track all of our donations years ago. - Sales Format is customizable to match your website, so customers don't know they're going off-site to purchase their tickets - Easy to add packages, products and donations to the offerings - Easy to set up numerous shows and events throughout the year and share access to box office information to select individuals for select productions - Ability to track all donor activity, including donations, attendance at shows, and product purchases (such as Auction wins or merchandise sales) - Ability to sort donors by category or campaign - Ability to have multiple donor campaigns for multiple projects - The online format allows our Development Staff to work remotely when necessary because all donor information is on the cloud

Our events perform in multiple venues with varying set-ups: assigned seats, general admission, and with various types of tickets like VIPs and student pricing in venues from 99 seats up to 800 or more seats. We also use discount codes, want something that easily integrates with email software and our website and really responsive support since we produce more events than our relatively small staff can handle! OvationTix has worked very well for us in this first six months of our partnership with them. I like that they update the software monthly with new features. It is important our company keep its branding consistent and OvationTix makes that process seamless. Ease of Use Quick Set-Up and On-Sales Integration with Email and Website Platforms Great Support Helpful and Ongoing Upgrades Call Center for Ticket Buyers by Phone Private, Custom Branding No Up-Front Cost: we only pay OvationTix when we sell tickets.

Overall, Ovationtix is very easy to use and client friendly. They have a great support team that is easy to reach and very helpful. For a small company such as ours that does not have a stationary box office, their phone line is a great way for us to offer box office service to our patrons. It's online functionality, allowing us to use anywhere we go, is great, as we are an itinerant theater company, and need to set up a new box office area for each show, somethimes in areas that are not as conducive to a theater environment. The software is easy to use, allowing our patrons easy ability to purchase tickets through our site. It is also flexible, so we can adjust it to our needs as an itinerant company. We can make our subscriptions customizable to each space that we are in.

Usually no out-of-pocket costs for OvationTix partners. Licensing or a per-ticket fee (any portion of which can be paid by the patron) pricing is typical. Specific pricing provided upon request but general fee pricing is approximately 10% of the value of the ticket.
