-- The Phoenix Coyotes recently teamed up with Seats3D® developer Ballena Technologies, Inc to build a 3-D seating chart of Jobing.com Arena that allows fans to see the view of the ice from any seat in the arena, from seating sections to luxury boxes, before purchasing tickets. Ballena Technologies has enhanced Seats3D by partnering with WebsiteAlive, a leader in live chat technology, and incorporating AliveChat in the 3-D viewing window so that fans can chat with seating representatives online if they have any questions before they buy.
"We were already using both AliveChat from WebsiteAlive and Seats3D separately on our website," said Coyotes Vice President of Ticket Sales Flavil Hampsten. "Combining both tools provided us with an interactive method to sell tickets online. Since fans can 'see' the view from their seats as well as get answers to any ticketing questions, we have been able to maximize online tickets sales. The feedback from users and sales representatives has been extremely positive thus far."
"AliveChat provides 'virtual hand holding' with website visitors to assist them through purchases," Dustin Yu, co-founder and CTO of WebsiteAlive explained. "We were thrilled to hear the great results the Phoenix Coyotes are having with AliveChat. And, now by combining AliveChat with Ballena Technologies’ Seats3D, we can’t wait to see how far the technology, and ticket sales, will go."About Ballena Technologies, Inc.
