Gametime has released a new version of its mobile app that lets you purchase last-minute tickets for sports events — without having to print anything.
San Francisco-based Gametime is an Android and iOS app that makes it easier to purchase last-minute tickets using your mobile device. The new version has a real-time “pull-to-refresh” feature that constantly updates the best seats available at a sports event. That means fans won’t have to keep reloading a screen to see if someone has bought a ticket in the meantime.
The ticket inventory is never more than a second out of date, he said.
Griffith got the idea for the company a while ago when he and his brother were trying to buy last-minute tickets for a San Francisco Giants game. They were at a bar and realized they had to print the tickets. They talked to the bartender and got permission to go to the office and print the tickets. They accidentally printed in color, and it took extra time, even though all they really needed was a bar code or QR code. They arrived late to the ballpark.
Fans can buy tickets at 60 participating venues in 22 cities. They can get tickets for MLB, NFL, NCAA, NBA, NHL, and MLS games.
“It’s such a better user experience,” Griffith said. “Our percentage averages out to a very small number. The market grows if you take a smaller percentage.”
Gametime will use the funds to continue the development of the company’s user experience and hire new people. To date, the company has raised $5 million, including a $4 million round led by Accel Partners announced in September.
“We set our sights on a big goal and are proud to showcase the same technology that ensures your Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto player-vs-player action isn’t a half second out of date,” said Griffith. “Gametime built the best last-minute access experience anywhere so that people can get off the couch, go do something fun, and spend more time with their family and friends.” venturebeat.com
