Enhanced Platform for Bundled Ticketing and Daily Deals Announced by Desiclub

Desiclub, a leading online ticketing service, announced it is introducing a brand new platform and advancing into the mainstream market across the US as part of its redeployment. Desiclub will offer a brand new ticketing management system for event organizers in addition to introducing the web's very first self-service deals platform for merchants, providing a state-of-the-art bundled transaction gateway.

Desiclub's bundled transactions will combine ticketing with local deals making it the very first company to offer the web's two highest-revenue generating activities together.

While there are giants in both the self-service ticketing and daily deals space to contend with, Desiclub has a distinct technological advantage, which will streamline the deployment of its unique 3-in-1 platform.

"Providing a singular platform that handles self-service ticketing, self-service deals, and an intelligent content offering does not exist, and we are excited that we are able to make such a service available to the multibillion dollar market for these three popular activities," stated Founder & CEO of Desiclub, Saroosh Gull.

He further added, "The daily deals model as it exists today has been a disappointment for merchants, and with our service-oriented history, we intend on providing a substantially greater value to merchants who want to offer their deals immediately and without being undercut by unnecessary fees."

With the viability of Desiclub’s bundled transaction model proven in the company’s first iteration, the site is launching a new platform that builds on their strong foundation and amplifies the capabilities of key features. "We successfully launched our bundled transactions prior to NYE in 2013, where about 10 in every 100 customers bought a bundled deal," Saroosh said.

Desiclub plans to fully release its upgraded platform during the second quarter of 2014.

The new Desiclub was catalyzed by raising a $1.5MM seed round, which it intends on closing around its deployment.

About: Desiclub.com has been a pioneer in catering to the ticketing needs of local organizations and businesses. It has organically generated over $1MM in revenue. With its foundation in technology and the aggressive ticketing and content space, it now has its eyes firmly set on expanding into the mainstream American domain by offering its users a sharp design experience with access to local events and bundled deals combined with native content.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
