Jazz Services - is Online booking for you?

We need your feedback on whether you will use the online ticket service
The Jazz Services site already provides a comprehensive listing of gigs for the whole of the UK and a search facility.
The new booking service will provide a "book now" facility alongside the gig listing for those promoters that sign up to the service.
The event description page can include images and bios for the band already stored within their Jazz Services profile, or the promoter can add further images and text for the specific gig (to customise or for a non-UK band).
The system has administration tools that allows the promoter to control the inventory made available through this channel. The system can cope with different ticket types at different prices with different inventory levels for each type. Multiple dates are easily created within the system. Inventory can be managed up to the event - i.e. inventory can be added or remove up until the day of the event. (Obviously, sold inventory cannot be removed.) The administration tools allow you to download lists of sales for any event and also management and finance data.
In addition, an iPhone app is being developed to provide the same gig search and booking capability - direct from the app on the phone.
We will also have a facility to email a data base of potential customers by postcode area
We have undertaken a comprehensive costing exercise and we have managed to get the overall commission down to £1.20 per booking including VAT. However we are investigating a sliding scale so someone paying for a £7 ticket will pay less.
As you know Jazz Services has suffered a 30% cut in its funding and we have to earn income to ensure more money goes into the front line. We think a jazz online box office is a viable proposition and we hope you do as well.
I look forward to hearing from you and very happy to discuss any aspect of this scheme. It would be very helpful if you could let me know whether you would be interested or not with a straight yes or no
Very many thanks
Kindest regards
