NBA Teams partner with SaaS tech provider to make basketball tickets easy for companies of all sizes
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA — As the NBA tips-off, companies of all sizes are gearing up to leverage the popularity of basketball through sponsorship and customer engagement. Several NBA teams around the league, including the Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, San Antonio Spurs, Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets have partnered with InviteManager for the last several years to make basketball tickets and suites easy for their customers. STAPLES Center, home to both the L.A. Clippers and Lakers, has recently adopted the technology too, adding to InviteManager’s stable of 80+ pro and collegiate sports organizations.
“The global popularity of the NBA is perfect for entertaining customers and companies of all sizes are benefiting,” says Tony Knopp, CEO and Co-Founder of InviteManager. “Companies who take customers and prospects to watch superstars like Steph Curry, Russel Westbrook, LeBron James, and Kyrie Irving are seeing a significant return on their investment.”
“InviteManager gives our suite-holders the tech they need to track and analyze ticket usage, and proves the overall return on their investment,” says Mike Setser, Sr. Director of Corporate Sales for the San Antonio Spurs. “Partnering with InviteManager puts our customers in control while also strengthening our message that suites are revenue driving business assets.”
Companies globally invest over $600B annually on client entertainment yet struggle getting the right people to games and tracking the ROI. NBA teams know how much companies invest in client entertainment, and are providing InviteManager to customers so they can get the most business from these client events. Specifically, InviteManager helps these team customers easily invite the best guests, check those guests in at the game, and prove just how lucrative basketball tickets are for client entertainment. These partnerships have been incredibly successful, and is why globally known brands like Verizon, FedEx, American Express, and Mastercard use and leverage InviteManager.
InviteManager’s easy-to-use SaaS technology enables companies to nominate and invite guests, check them in at the event, and understand the return on investment through powerful reports. Used by 50 of the Fortune 1000 and endorsed by over sixty pro teams, InviteManager partners with Salesforce.com, Ticketmaster, StubHub, Concur, Microsoft, and American Express to make tickets easy and available in the enterprise and apps that professionals use every day.
“ROI means everything for business owners,” Knopp continues. “But it is difficult to prove what works and what doesn’t. InviteManager takes the guesswork out of the equation and shows exactly how powerful events — like pro basketball games — drive the bottom line.”
