Ticketing System From Time To Time
Have you ever wondering when you are going to a particular event why do we need ticket? This tickets were originally made to manage visitors and avoiding possible fraud happen during the event.
Ticket was firstly used by Greek for people who wanted to attend and watch a show in theatre. At that time, they used counter to sell tickets and many people were queueing to buy and watch the show. However, because of limited resources, it caused long queue and some people could not get the ticket even they had waited for long time.
After some time, there were resellers who bought the tickets from counter for massive amounts and sell it again to other people. Of course, the price was higher than the counter but it was convenient rather than people had to queue and possibility of not getting the ticket anyway.
Technology has developed, so does in ticketing. Nowadays, people can buy ticket anytime and anywhere through online. As long as you have gadget and connect with internet, you can get the ticket you want. In most countries online ticket has becoming common these days because of its convenience. In Indonesia itself, online ticketing is starting to set its root on the culture.
Beside the system, the shape of ticket keeps changing from time to time. Before, ticket was made by paper with hand writing. But now, we are familiar with e-ticket that we do not need to print it out. This e-ticket usually get a special code (barcode, QR code, etc) that a particular scanning device can identify the information on the tickets
Nevertheless, people still seek to find the most secure ticketing management. One of the latest technology is RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip that can be embedded into wristband, badges, stickers and etc. Through this RFID, we can put data such as a person’s name, email, and other. With this we can avoid fake tickets or people trying to get into the venue without tickets. RFID has other advantages as well, it can be used as cashless payment on the event.
