We have been building and supporting ticketing systems for many years for many of the world’s top brands. Each of us was frustrated with the lack of choice in ticketing systems–our clients either had to choose an unmanageably large, older system or a consumer-grade system that did half of what was needed. We created Elevent because we felt somebody needed to address the problem and we knew what to do.
