Production Team Credit
Do you need to keep track of the tickets sold by your production crew, cast, or other members of your organization? This can be especially important for school events. However, keeping track of this manually can eat out a lot of valuable time and energy. Our production team credit feature lets you easily track how many tickets each individual sold and that they receive the proper credit for their efforts.
Rooted in Experience
We have been producers and patrons, so we understand the challenges faced by both. We set out to develop an online ticketing platform that addressed those challenges. The goal was to streamline the process of event ticketing convenient and affordable. We are constantly working to improve our system. Initially developed with school and community theaters in mind, BookTix handles ticketing for various types of events, including dance, sports, and more, no matter the size, nationwide.
Oscar Wilde said “ Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” and we are flattered. We consider ourselves trailblazers. When we first started BookTix, we were one of the few ticketing platforms available for schools, community theaters, and other small organizations. Now we are one of many and some of our competitors offer many of the same features as we do. However, not all of them have the deep-rooted commitment we have to support the Arts, schools, and community organizations and help them thrive.
