Applynx Website Solutions of Templeton Acquires Eventcetera Ticketing Software
Templeton, CA. —Applynx Website Solutions, a small, owner-operated website development firm located on Main Street in Templeton, recently acquired Eventcetera, a ticking software application that is used by several non-profit arts organizations in San Luis Obispo County, including the SLO Symphony, Festival Mozaic and the SLO International Film Festival. Eventcetera was founded by Dave Lewicki in 2006 when he saw a need for an affordable, flexible way to sell tickets, collect and track donations, and organize volunteers for non-profit music and theater art events and large festivals.
The Live Oak Music Festival, the largest fundraiser (in its 25th year) for local public radio station KCBX, was one of the first clients and still uses the software. Eventcetera is unique in that it allows the organization to use their own credit card merchant account to collect ticket sales revenue in real time, plus it has a volunteer module that allows for volunteer team management, including shift times, meals provided, job descriptions, sign-up forms and communication.
It’s a really great system. It’s certainly one of the most user-friendly systems I’ve worked with”, says Kevin Harris, Executive Director of the San Luis Obispo Little Theatre.
Eventcetera allows for assigned venue seating with tiered pricing, early bird and coupon code discount pricing, and allows patrons to add a donation to their ticket purchase. Clients set their own ticket surcharges, which can result in a substantial cost savings to both the organization and the patrons. Applynx owners Scott and Sarah Maggelet plan to upgrade the interface and add more user friendly features, like social media sharing of one’s purchase, in the coming months.
Since 2005, Applynx Website Solutions has offered custom-built affordable websites using open source content management systems, like Drupal and Joomla, with a specialization in small business sites and shopping carts for online commerce. They also offer hosting and on-going website development and maintenance on volume-based discounted contracts.
