Accesso signs deal with Groupon

Following last week's announcement of a partnership for Ingresso with Google, today's announcement is a further demonstration of accesso's strengthening position in the ticketing distribution market, accesso said
The integration will allow for a "seamless mobile experience for Groupon customers, giving them instant access to ticketing inventory across Ingresso's supplier network"

Accesso Technology Group PLC (LON: ACSO), the technology solutions provider focused on the leisure, entertainment and hospitality markets, has entered into a strategic partnership with Groupon.

Groupon, the e-commerce firm that offers discounts, deals and “money off coupons”, will use accesso’s Ingresso distribution platform to give its app users access to ticketing inventory.

The integration, which will begin in late autumn 2018, will also enable current accesso clients to make their tickets available to a vastly expanded audience, gaining access to Groupon's 49.5 million global active customers.

The partnership comes hot on the heels with a similar collaboration with Google.

Brian Fields, Groupon's vice president and general manager, said hooking up with Ingress “gives us the ability to leverage our huge presence on mobile to provide the best possible experience for our customers and merchants”.
