An hour outside of Chicago in Sycamore, Illinois, Sycamore Tickets acts as the central ticketing office for the local school District. Consisting of a high school, middle school and five elementary schools, Sycamore Community School District 427 serves nearly 4,000 students. Sycamore Tickets manages ticketing for the District’s theatre, music and dance productions in addition to high school sporting events, school dances, commencement and community rentals for organizations like the Kiwanis club and the Penguin Project.
Sycamore Tickets was bogged down by a manual ticketing process. After rolling out Vendini, they introduced online sales to save staff time and enhance the patron experience—all the while arming students with skills for their futures.
