BREAKING: StubHub Acquires Peekspy
By: Richard Brewer-Hay
StubHub has acquired Peekspy, a technology company based in Singapore that provides ticketing companies 2D and 3D products that allow users to drill down to the seat level when choosing their seat for an event. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Peekspy’s flagship product, Fanvenues, features next generation 3D mapping technology that enables fans to filter results by enabling such attributes as view from section. Something I could have done with a couple of days ago on StubHub when I pulled the trigger on 2 tickets for my eldest daughter and I to see The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, perform in San Jose later next month. I’ve got a pretty good idea that we’ve got excellent seats because I’ve been to this particular venue a few times, but because she’s young, I wanted to make sure we had a great view from our seats for her first ever indoor arena concert.
As an avid Miami Dolphins’ fan I’m looking forward to playing with the new functionality when I start tracking down tickets next season when Peyton Manning takes the field in orange and teal.
