Keith Prowse Sport and Entertainment Travel has successfully incorporated an one stop ticketing software and content solution on its website for travel agents.

The portal is powered by TicketSwitch software which enables agents to sell more event tickets efficiently and profitably.

Event tickets are sourced directly from supplier inventory systems, which means travel agents are able to benefit from highly competitive prices and inventory availability right up to just before the time of the event.

John Godwin, managing director of Keith Prowse said that over 200 agencies had signed up for the new portal in just over four weeks.

The take-up has exceeded our expectations with significant interest from a wide array of agencies. We expect to reach our first quarter sales target within the first two months, Mr Godwin said. Agents are now able to book events all over the world from just one website in addition to packaging accommodation and having real-time confirmation of purchase.

Key events ticketing benefits include:

Having real time access to live inventory to over 1000 ticketed events for theatre, opera, ballet, comedy, attractions, theme parks, sightseeing and tours in 100 major cities and across 17 countries - all in one platform

Buying tickets right up to the last minute

Accessing competitive prices

Receiving real time confirmation of purchase

Receiving tickets directly from the supplier

Dynamic package functionality with online availability and instant confirmation.

Mr Godwin said that the new online product launch had seen the roll out of the first phase with many strategic and exclusive product deals, all of which can be tailored for travel agents, travel management services, leisure travellers and corporate clients. Keith Prowse will also be offering customised own brand white label solutions to key partners.

Keith Prowses mission is to empower event ticket suppliers to increase their sales revenues utilising the TicketSwitch global distribution platform to provide access to a vast array of local, national and global sales channels at low cost to the supplier and the distributor, Mr Godwin said. The portal is a hugely exciting realisation of this opportunity enabling travel agents to source a wide range of event tickets from a single platform in the same way as hotels, flights, car hire and airport transfers are sold, ultimately enabling their customers to access the best prices available direct from the box office.
