University of Cincinnati Seal Paciolan Ticket Partnership

September 3, 2014

Ticketing provider Paciolan has announced that the University of Cincinnati has extended its partnership with the company.

Cincinnati will continue leveraging Paciolan’s industry-leading ticketing and marketing solutions, and in conjunction with the renewal, the university has upgraded Paciolan’s Access Management system and implemented the company’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform. Cincinnati has been a Paciolan partner since 1990. Paciolan is a subsidiary of the Philadelphia-based sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectacor.

“It is a pleasure to continue our partnership with an industry juggernaut that represents our industry on a national scale,” said Mike Bohn, Director of Athletics at the University of Cincinnati. “Within the college athletics landscape, Paciolan is the only one that serves the majority and provides the platform and services for Cincinnati to be the best it can be.”

Cincinnati will continue to leverage Paciolan’s eVenue online ticketing solution to efficiently sell tickets in real-time at Using the website, fans are able to purchase and renew tickets, and manage their accounts online in a fan-friendly interface. The online box office also provides Cincinnati fans with the ability to select tickets via interactive pick your own seat maps for football and basketball events, along with the option to print their tickets from home.

With the renewed partnership, Cincinnati upgraded Paciolan’s Access management technology to allow the university to provide its fans and students with mobile ticketing and delivery. Beginning with the 2014-15 men’s basketball season at Fifth Third Arena, Bearcats fans will be able to bypass will call lines and enter the venue upon arrival with 2D barcoded tickets on their mobile devices. In addition to using the Access solution at Fifth Third Arena, Cincinnati will implement the technology for the 2015 football season at Nippert Stadium after its renovation and expansion during the 2014 season.

“We partner with Paciolan, in part because of the technology, but also because they offer a full suite of options for us to use such as their marketing services,” said Brad Wurthman, Associate Athletics Director, Marketing and Strategic Communications at the University of Cincinnati. “In an age where sports marketing in college athletics is changing rapidly, we have to be cutting edge and Paciolan provides that platform for us to do so.”

“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Cincinnati Athletics and continue to provide them with a robust suite of tools and a platform to achieve their goals,” said Dave Butler, Chief Executive Officer of Paciolan. “Paciolan is eager to help our partners grow and expand their business while remaining committed to improving their fan and customer experiences through leading technology.”
