  • Ronnie,

     

    look no further than SharePoint. Many options to pick from, so that you can smart small, and scale fast.

     

    it is SQL back end.

     

    You can use Kentico, which integrates with SharePoint, if you need e-commerce module. SharePoint does not natively ship with one.

     

    Regards.

    Alex

  • thanks Alex

    i'm looking for something as out of the box as possible...and i'm not sure sharepoint would be robust enough but that's only because i can't picture it in my mind doing the tasks that our current system does.

     

    we use currently this product from tickets.com

    http://uk.provenue.com/index.php/product/provenuemax

    but its been like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole, plus it quite expensive for us. it also doesn't integrate well with our technology architecture, well at least not without much modification

  • Wait, are you looking for a MIcrosoft product, taht out of the box does ticketing?

     

    Not sure there is one. What you get with MS products is, a highly integrated, scalable and definitely integrated *platform* for your needs.

     

    Without customization, I am not sure how you can get this done via an MS prod.

     

    Regards.
