April 2018 – Client Logos on eTickets in HD

The display resolutions of today’s newest devices are incredible! And if we don’t have a high enough resolution logo loaded for you, then your brand image can end up looking blurry, digitally and in print. We’ve been making incremental digital improvements in this capacity since 2012, and I’m excited to announce that we’ve put this same technology in place for our dynamically generated and printable eTickets. Now, your logo will look amazing for your members, all the way to the Box Office.

We’ve redesigned our Back Office for Clients, Vendors, and Providers! Our new design is fully mobile responsive, and fully integrated with Abenity’s growing Perks systems (ie: Discounts, Movie Showtimes, Giveaways, Wellness, etc.).
