Impact selects new platform for managing and selling tickets

MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday that it will henceforth use Montreal-based platform Outbox for the managing and selling of tickets during the 2019 season. 

A new purchasing process, including a 3D interactive seating plan, will be available for the purchase of tickets in 2019. The new IMFC Portal (online account manager) will be more dynamic, while adapting to tablets and mobile phones. It will also allow Members to transfer tickets, and even pay an invoice by taking advantage of the payment plans available. The option to resell tickets for certain games via the new platform will also be a novelty for Members in 2019. 

“We are very happy to have reached this agreement with this online ticketing specialist,” said Montreal Impact Chief Revenue Officer, André Côté. “We are proud to offer our Members and supporters a new environment for the management and purchase of their tickets to improve their overall experience.”

“The Outbox team is proud of the show of confidence by the Montreal Impact,” declared Outbox president and founder Jean-Françoys Brousseau. “We think that the use of our technology will provide consumers with an exceptional shopping experience, notably by the visualisation of their seat in virtual reality, while allowing the team to maintain a direct relationship with its supporters.”

Outbox hosts a large number of tickets on a multilingual platform operating in more than 20 countries for international tours and shows since 2006, as well as in more than 50 concert halls, theatres, arenas, stadiums and other flagship institutions around the world like Cirque du Soleil and the Montreal Canadiens hockey club. 

Founded in 2006, Outbox is established in Montreal. Outbox’s team of engineers use state-of-the-art tools to develop the best fully web-based solutions.
