TicketSauce, an event management software firm, has introduced photo upload capability in an effort to boost security at events.

The e-ticketing security feature will provide an additional layer of safety for organisers, as the facial photo will match the names on each ticket.

TicketSauce is a private label Software as a Service (SaaS) event management solution which focuses on growing transactional revenue and data for media companies, event organisers, and convention/visitor bureaus.

“This is just another step in our efforts to provide the most robust and secure level of ticketing to all our customers and their events,” said Travis Fisher, chief executive of TicketSauce.

“As one of the first E-ticketing companies to enable customised photo ticketing, we are raising the bar for manual photo/name checks upon entry and look forward to opening the gates for the next phase of E-ticketing security with facial recognition software in the future.

“This next layer of photo ticketing helps our customers stay ahead of the trend and be a front runner for safer event consideration.”

As well as boosting security, the photo ticketing facility can also provide an easy means for ticket filtering for VIP only events or entries, exclusive benefits, quicker event access, and photo-only ticketing entry lines.

John Kane, director of TicketSauce client CitySpin Ticketing and Events, said: “We are always looking to reduce fraud at our events while providing an increased level of security for our attendees as well as our organisers and are excited to continue our work with TicketSauce.”
