Helps Kalahari Resorts, Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center and Tourism Vancouver Better Serve Customers and Improve Business Operations
SAN DIEGO, CA – February 23, 2012 - RTP, LLC, part of Active Network, Inc. (NYSE: ACTV), provides the commerce engine powering some of North America’s most popular parks and attractions including Kalahari Resorts, Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center and Canada’s Tourism Vancouver. Through the implementation of RTP’s enterprise activity management platform, RTP|ONE™, parks and attractions can smoothly and efficiently run all aspects of their operations – from ticketing access control to retail and rentals and food and beverage sales.
“RTP has centralized our business data giving us a clearer, real-time view of our performance, along with customer relationship data that helps enable us to improve our customer service and operational efficiency,” said Cara Vanderhall, Manager of Visitor Centre Operations at Tourism Vancouver.
Parks and Attractions aimed at better accommodating visitors utilize RTP|ONE technology to allow their customers to purchase tickets and passes in advance through various access points—online, onsite or through distributors—while also augmenting business operations through real-time intelligence and analytics. For example, Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center is able to track hourly points-of-entrance into the park, allowing them to adjust staffing needs accordingly. RTP|ONE’s analytics also provides valuable insight into where visitors are traveling from, allowing parks and attractions to advertise more effectively.
“We are excited to grow our footprint in the parks and attractions market with some very well-known customers utilizing our RTP commerce engine,” said Ram Krishnan, SVP and senior general manager, Communities division at Active Network. “We are helping our customers streamline their operations and harness their data to make well-informed business decisions.”
RTP customers can now also take advantage of RTP|ONE Itinerary, its first out-of-the-box e-commerce and central reservation solution to package and sell all destination travel elements in one transaction or single itinerary. Through this solution, parks and attractions can sell exclusive packages that include tickets, activities, travel accommodations and lodging, which should help increase per visitor yield by attaining a larger share of the travel dollars being spent by visitors.
