Event Ticketing Software
Platinum Group facilitates ticket sales for a variety of entertainment and sporting events. They have handled Formula One racing, ATP, MotoGP, Le Bourget Air Show organization to serve both fans and the organizers themselves. PG provides its infrastructure, software, and technologies.
Some companies start outsourcing because they think it's cheaper, but in fact it's not. You shouldn't do it to save money, you should do it if you want to hire a team of several senior full stack developers in the next three months, which is possible in Ukraine and most probably not possible in France or Monaco.
We invested heavily in PPC and SEO activities and received an interesting email at the end of 2016:
“Hello. PG is a company located in Monaco and specialized in the Ticketing business. Although we have an internal IT team covering our software development, we are looking into expanding with an outsourced team…”. Of course, we replied immediately and started a further discussion. However, our negotiations got stuck at some point and we decided to stay ahead of the curve, initiated a live meeting in Monaco and did our best to land a contract.
