Seattle Seahawks to Provide Corporate Suite Holders with SpotlightTMS

By Community | July 25, 2012

The Seattle Seahawks will provide corporate suite holders with SpotlightTMS, a Software as a Service (SaaS) application that enables companies to measure the business impact of their ticket and suite assets, while staying compliant with various state and federal regulations related to corporate entertaining, SpotlightTMS announced today.

“We chose SpotlightTMS because it’s the clear industry leader. We believe our suite owners will enjoy the ease of managing their tickets and requests — as well as tracking their ROI — all in one easy-to-use application.”

“The Seattle Seahawks organization strives to enhance the services we provide to our full-season suite owners, and incorporating SpotlightTMS into our suite packages is a part of that philosophy,” said Amy Sprangers, managing director of suite sales & service, Seattle Seahawks & Seattle Sounders FC. “We chose SpotlightTMS because it’s the clear industry leader. We believe our suite owners will enjoy the ease of managing their tickets and requests — as well as tracking their ROI — all in one easy-to-use application.”

SpotlightTMS helps ensure that companies allocate their tickets and suites to the right people for the right business reasons. By providing SpotlightTMS as part of its hospitality suite packages in time for the upcoming 2012 NFL season, the franchise adds value to suite ownership at CenturyLink Field and enables the team’s corporate customers to increase revenue and ROI on the use of their tickets and suites. CenturyLink, the naming rights sponsor of the venue, has been a SpotlightTMS user for years.

“CenturyLink Field has the NFL’s first field-level boxes in professional sports, so they’re prime real estate for building business relationships and closing deals,” said Tony Knopp, SpotlightTMS CEO and co-founder. “The Seahawks franchise recognizes the importance of enabling its suite holders to tie corporate entertaining back to bottom line results. With SpotlightTMS, these companies can measure the impact of their suite investments and then use that information to drive revenue. This not only benefits the suite owners, but will no doubt affect the team’s suite renewal percentage.”

SpotlightTMS offers companies secure access through the Internet to manage ticket inventories, distribute tickets, analyze the results of ticket usage and acquire additional tickets from multiple sources. The software also helps companies meet IRS and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance reporting requirements and avoid violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. It is estimated that U.S. companies spend approximately $16 billion a year on sports and entertainment tickets, suites and sponsorships, but without a centralized, transparent tracking system, organizations risk steep fines if these assets are used improperly.
