FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Selden, NY –December 7, 2012 – Instant Verification for Online Discounts

FutureTix and SheerID have aligned to meld a unique blend of entertainment ticketing expertise and a sophisticated authentication system designed to protect your exclusive offers.  SheerID has been successfully servicing other market verticals demonstrating vast experience in instant authentication of military personnel, students and seniors among others.

SheerID’s service acts as a bridge between a venue’s shopping cart and any secure database.  As that bridge, their software verifies if a customer qualifies for a certain discount or ticket type.  It all happens in a fraction of a second.  The system uses sophisticated request processing technology to efficiently route verification requests to one or more secure identity data sources.  SheerID can plug-in to a venue’s site at any point along the checkout process.  The platform is designed to work with the inquiry information a venue already collects.  Eligible customers won’t notice they were verified, and the shopping cart doesn’t have to change.

“The applications for this type of instant verification are limitless…” said Dan DeMato, President of FutureTix, Inc.  “… when a venue doesn’t want their promo codes to go viral SheerID’s instant verification is the solution. This tool eliminates the need for vouchers or ID’s to be shown at the event, and I’m most impressed by the additional data that can be returned to the venue regarding these purchasers”.

The web-based platform will allow venue executives to maximize revenue, eliminate fraud and protect exclusive offers by verifying individuals’ qualifications to purchase predefined tickets.  In addition, venues will be provided with a wealth of patron data that will facilitate smarter marketing, sales and customer service.  This seamless verification can occur online, at the box office window, over the phone or through a mobile device.

“When venues, teams, or ticketing platforms want to offer a discount to a specific group like military personnel, teachers, college students, or literally any customer segment, SheerID eliminates fraudulent use of that discount,” says David Shear, President of SheerID.  “Discount ticket programs will become immediately more successful due to the instant verification process, and future programs will improve from the metrics analysis available. We really change the game.”
