A quick plug for my friend Richard Simon and his recently-launched web service, BDATIX, which is a joint venture with the good folks at eMoo and Transact. Basically it’s an online booking service like the established Boxoffice.bm but with one big difference: you can print out your tickets at home complete with barcodes which are scanned at the event. You can also pick them up from BDATIX box offices around the Island. Signed up so far are the Little Theatre, the World Rugby Classic and Richard’s own Just For Laughs comedy festival (highly recommended but note the summer dates this year, August 21-24). Expect more to follow.
Another useful service BDATIX is providing is an online donation and membership facility for charities and non-profit rganisations. We found this useful for one of our clients as the process saved them the expense and hassle of setting up a merchant account with a local bank. BDATIX handles the credit card transaction, deposits the money in our client’s account (minus a $2 fee) and automatically forwards the membership information. What we in the trade call a win-win situation!
