Online ticketing is the fastest growing segment in the ticketing industry. Now, you too can offer the convenience of online ticketing to your patrons with eFolio.
eFolio is a Martech Systems designed technology that integrates SQL Server with the Folio Box Office software.
Start selling tickets online by building your events in Folio. Mark which events are available for online sales and they will be automatically synchronized to your venues online event calendar that resides on Martech System's enterprise class SQL Server. Create different start and stop times for your events so you can sell up to the last minute from the box office, but cut off online sales a few hours before the show. Folio also lets you set up special schedules for online sales.
Seats are sold on a Best Available basis. eFolio always assigns the best seats for your patrons based on the number of tickets they want, the section desired and seats availability. This way your patrons always get the best seats available at any given time in the house. You have the ability to block out seats from online sales on an event by event basis. You can also hold back seats for your priority patrons.
Create your own fees both at the ticket level, such as a historic preservation fee. Or at the sale level, such as a handling fee.
After the sale is completed a credit card authorization email is sent to your patron. Additionally, a purchase confirmation email is sent to your patron to confirm event specific information, including event date & time, etc. Your box office staff can also receive copies of these emails to insure yor box office staff has the exact same information that your patron received. Your online tickets are then batch printed from the Folio Box Office software complete with receipts. "Will Call" tickets can be separated from the "Mail Out" tickets for easy distribution.

The Internet is a powerful sales tool. eFolio will help you take advantage of its power to boost your online ticket sales. 55% of Americans who are online have purchased tickets over the Internet. Selling an additional 50 to 100 seats online is all it takes for eFolio to pay for itself and to bring your theater to a new level of profitability.
