The following sequence illustrates the process a purchaser of an AutoShow ticket goes through on his/her mobile phone.
The program running the session is called, mobile.dll. Mobile.dll works on any smartphone connected to the internet.
The first view illustrates, the purchaser selecting the various combination of tickets they wish to purchase. The purchaser also identifies who they are by providing a mobile phone number and email address.
On the middle view, the purchaser enters their credit card information. Once the ‘Process >>‘ button is pressed, the real-time credit card transaction is initiated. The payment authorization is fully completed in about 2 seconds.
The third view illustrates, what the purchaser needs to enter the show. The purchaser walks up to one of the eight gates and then touches the gate number belonging to the gate they are entering at. On the gatekeeper’s computer, the person’s name will appear on the gatekeeper’s screen and the gatekeeper is then able to redeem all or a portion of the purchaser’s tickets. In the case, of smaller shows with only one gate, we replace the gate numbers with the image of a barcode. The purchaser merely touches the barcode or has it scanned for entry into the show.
Behind the scenes, an email with the mobile ticket and a receipt has also been sent to the purchaser. The ticket and receipt are contained in a PDF attachment.

We are currently building a ‘one-click’ experience. That is, we believe that the best interface for a successful mobile phone purchase would be where all of the questions are asked on one page and with ‘one-click’ the ticket appears and is ready for scanning.
