ShowClix turns Nexus One Android phone into mobile ticket scanner

If you are looking to open up a new venue and you need an easy to use ticketing system, check out ShowClix Axess. The full-service ticketing solution allows promoters to use Android phones to scan tickets and check-in users to events. Customers can bring in their printed tickets or use their smartphone to check-in with QR codes.

A full list of features include:

  • Scans 1D & 2D barcodes
  • Scans print@home eTickets, hard tickets, and mobile tickets
  • Fast barcode recognition – 1 to 2 seconds per scan
  • Online and offline scanning
  • Find and check in ticket buyers who arrive without their ticket
  • Voice search
  • Check out and reentry mode
  • Works with multiple entrance points
  • Lightweight
  • Touchscreen

This has to be one of the most innovative uses of the Android platform I have seen. I wish some of the venues in my area were hip enough to give it a try. The service also looks ripe for some integration with some of the social check-in platforms like Foursquare or Gowalla.

“Axess is the product of years of frustration with the existing barcode scanning options that have been available to our clients. The introduction of Axess and our new ticket scanners carries the innovation of our web-based platform to the door of the venue. Our new ticket scanners aren’t just easy-to-use and affordable, they’re also packed with features that give our clients more flexibility and control over the way they admit ticket buyers into their events. Venues and event promoters finally have a better option when it comes to barcode scanning.”Joshua DziabiakShowClix CEO

    this is pretty amazing.

    revolutionary. It seems like it could make getting people in multiple entrances millenniums faster than older methods. But also seems like its easier to break mobile programs then actual ticketing device software,
