NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) Secondary ticketing platform Tickpick has announced July 25 it has acquired ticket inventory aggregator Rukkus.
Rukkus allows users to perform aggregated searches of dozens of ticket buyers, tailored to interest, and helps pinpoint tickts based on value. It basically helps users find deals and cheap tickets for events in the U.S. and, before the acquisition, had more than 300,000 total customers generating more than 1 million site visitors.
Tickpick’s acquisition also provides the ticketing company or, rather, its customers, with high-definition, 360-degree views of hundreds of venues, providing ticket buyers with previews of their experiences.
“We’re continuing our growth path by making smart acquisitions, developing partnerships, and constantly improving our technology for the industry’s best customer experience,” Tickpick Co-CEO Brett Goldberg said . “Rukkus brought in several hundred thousand valuable customers, and they also built a very impressive seat-view capability that is much more immersive than the ‘virtual’ views offered by many of our competitors. This purchase and our recent acquisition of established player Razorgator are part of our customer growth strategy and our focus on refining our tech to remain the premier site to buy sports and entertainment tickets.”
