Ticketmaster buys itself an upgrade

Distributed System Architects to aid in global operation

Ticketmaster has acquired Distributed System Architects to aid the ticketer in implementing state-of-the-art ducat distribution in its global operation.

DSA, known for its unrivaled computerized technology and software for the sports and entertainment industries, will become a wholly owned subsid of Ticketmaster.

DSA also is responsible for creating bellwether technology ARCHTICS, a top-notch inhouse ticketing system currently used by the teams of all four major sports leagues, as well as theaters, universities and golf and tennis events.

“The move (to acquire DSA) is consistent with Ticketmaster’s mandate to provide expanded ticketing service to our clients,” Ticketmaster prexy and CEO Fred Rosen said.

Virginia-based DSA also is known for its technology in computerized automatic relocation of season-ticket holders when a team moves into a new venue.

“The move (to become part of Ticketmaster) will afford its clients enhanced tools for handling their unique ticketing needs, which will ultimately provide greater ease and convenience for event ticketing worldwide,” said David N. Scarborough, CEO of DSA.

Ticketmaster has 26 worldwide call centers, 2,900 ticket centers in six countries and hundreds of venues that will benefit from the acquisition of DSA and the merging of the firms’ respective ticketing technologies.
