The ticketing industry is a busy one and an important aspect of being in this industry is ensuring that your customers are always satisfied with your service.

As a retailer in a ticketing company, you want your customer’s experience to be seamless and as automated as possible.

Extract specific information from tickets using Parseur

Let’s say there is a big event or concert coming up in a month, not only do you have to coordinate with the providers but also ensure that the right tickets are being sold within the timeframes given to you. Once tickets are sold, you have to keep important details about each customer (name, date, amount paid, seat number).

It can be time consuming to quickly select important information, especially if you are processing hundreds ticket purchases per day.

This is where Parseur comes in!

What is Parseur?

If you are new to the email parsing software, here’s what it’s all about!

An email parser lets you extract specific data and information from your emails automatically. Parseur is a powerful mail parser software which enables powerful data extractions in no time, with zero coding experience!

It does not matter if you are not a tech guy as Parseur is user-friendly and can be integrated with thousands of applications effortlessly.

Benefits of using Parseur for processing tickets

Our clients use Parseur in order to:

  • Extract specific information from tickets automatically which saves countless hours of manual work
  • Download parsed data in formats such as Microsoft excel, CSV or JSON
  • Export extracted data to any application

Let’s take the case where a big musical festival is coming up in a month. As a retailer, you have already made your bulk purchases from your providers and are now selling those tickets. You are receiving hundreds of emails on a daily basis about the status of your tickets. Manually extracting essential details from those tickets take hours of your time.

Why not automate this part with Parseur so that you can focus on other aspects of the business?
