Accesso acquires VisionOne ticketing platform

Accesso acquires VisionOne ticketing platform
November 17, 2014

Less than a year after purchasing Siriusware, access technology and queue management experts Accesso has announced a deal to acquire leading ticketing solutions provider VisionOne Worldwide Ltd.

Bringing together access and ticketing solutions in attractions and entertainment/venue markets, the acquisition establishes Accesso as a leader in those markets.

VisionOne Worldwide’s ShoWare™ ticketing solutions product is a customizable cloud-based SAAS ticket sales and distribution solution used for for assigned-seating by more than 475 venues throughout North and South America, processing more than 19 million tickets annually.

Providing box office and online ticketing solutions to theatres, sports stadiums, performing arts centre and music festivals, ShoWare was the first ticketing solution to allow venues, promoters and artists the ability to sell tickets through Facebook.  

With Accesso’s established presence in the attractions market, the acquisition firmly establishes the combined company as a ticketing and access leader across the leisure industry.

Welcoming the acquisition, Accesso Chief Executive Tom Burnet stated “by developing a platform that improves collaboration between venues, promoters and entertainers, VisionOne has capitalized on a unique opportunity within the live entertainment industry.

“By offering an affordable self-service ticketing solution backed by 24/7 support, ShoWare is well positioned to continue their rapid growth in an underserved marketplace.”

Headquartered in Fresno, California, USA with operations across North America, Mexico and Brazil, the company of 66 employees has been providing a wide variety of e-commerce, consulting and software services to global roster of clients since 1999.

Under terms of the deal, VisionOne will retain its Fresno headquarters and Chief Executive Bruno Boehi will serve as President of the VisionOne division of Accesso.

All VisionOne employees will join accesso group, growing the organization’s workforce to more than 250 fulltime employees. 

However, former VisionOne Worldwide subsidiaries in Chile, Argentina, Switzerland and Austria are not included in the transaction.

The acquisition is the third major transaction for Accesso in as many years. In December 2012, the virtual queuing company known then as Lo-Q, acquired Accesso, the attraction industry’s leading ticketing and e-commerce innovator.

Last December the company purchased Siriusware, a leading ticketing and guest management point-of-sale technology provider to the attractions and leisure industries, with a particularly strong presence in the ski and snow sport sector.
