Mobile ticketing and data insights provider Corethree has achieved the “world first” milestone of 100m mobile tickets sold on behalf of its transport operator partners, which include First Group, Arriva, Transport for London (TfL), Lothian, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), and others.
According to the company, it has seen m-ticket sales grow at a rate of 2000 per cent between 2015 and 2019. It reached its 50m ticket milestone in February 2018.
“I am immensely proud of what the Corethree team has achieved today. Reaching the 100m tickets milestone at such speed is a world-first accomplishment and testament to the consumer readiness for embracing mobile-native solutions across transport, entertainment and retail,” said Ashley Murdoch, Corethree CEO. “M-tickets are about so much more than faster ticket purchasing and shorter queues. With a talented team that keeps on growing and thanks to our market-leading technology, Corethree is paving the way for a secure, smarter and more meaningful way to travel, experience a night-out or enjoy relevant promotions.
“We look forward to growing these figures in the coming months and helping businesses modernise the way customers interact with their brands.”
Earlier this year, Corethree presented an example of how its ticketing solutions can be used outside of the transport industry. It teamed up with the Deltic Group – the owner of bars and clubs including Pryzm, Bar & Beyond, Atik, Fiction, Cameo, Kuda, and Vinyl – to launch a collection of mobile apps enabling customers to remotely purchase tickets and upload their IDs for faster entry into nightlife venues.
