MangoTix Mobile Ticketing System Whitepaper


									MangoTix – Mobile Ticketing

How Does It Work
The following diagram illustrates the closed-loop mobile ticketing process. This process is involved in both pre and during event activities.

Utilising its patented rapid application development platform, JMango has developed a unique mobile ticketing application called MangoTix. With seamless and effortless client integration, the MangoTix application is a complete 360 degree mobile ticketing solution, allowing users to order, pay for, receive and redeem tickets to events. The MangoTix application can work across a variety of different clients, from large ticketing houses to boutique agencies, individual events, promoters and anyone else seeking a unique ticketing solution on the go. The solution is also environmentally friendly, with a secure paperless ticketing option for the eco-minded. Like most JMango applications, the MangoTix can be simply and easily bolted onto existing payments services, allowing immediate and secure integration. The first step in the process is to download the mobile application for the event, which involves the user making the request (1) for the application (either via the third party website or an opt-in SMS message). The MangoTix provides system integration API to allow third party websites to connect directly to the system and send the application as well as create and issue mobile tickets. A message containing the download link is sent to the participants mobile (2), where they can start purchasing tickets or accessing event information. Once the application is on the mobile, users are able to purchase tickets directly from the main menu (3), using a credit card which is processed via the secure payment gateway. Once the transaction is proved, a unique encrypted 2D QRCode image will be sent to the users' mobiles (4) as well as AIMIA is the first client to use JMango’s Mango Tix application for 15th Annual Awards program. The MangoTix application has been incorporated into AIMIA’s JMango mobile application, allowing those who download the application or visit the mobi site (iPhone, Windows Mobile) to purchase paperless tickets seamlessly from their mobile. In addition to the MangoTix feature, the AIMIA mobile application also provides the latest news on the Awards nights as well as details on the nominees, contact and event info. It will also enable push and pull communication, allowing users to pull additional content as well as AIMIA to push event reminders, competition details, post event content pack etc. any guests' mobiles that the users have purchased tickets for. This QRCode is stored both within the actual application as well as their SMS Inbox. On the day of the event, the user will present their unique QRCode ticket and swipe this code at the entrance (5) for a quick entry process. The entrance scanner verifies the ticket and updates the ticket status (6) accordingly, which can then be used to trigger additional communication such as welcome messages or call to action initiatives.
