"Working with Fujitsu has been a pleasure. The team understands our needs, our business and our technology and has been instrumental in establishing Tickethour in the UK market"
David McClellan, CEO, Tickethour UK
Tickethour was established in 2005 by three senior figures from the Athens 2004 Olympic Organising Committee. It was their responsibility to sell the 5.5 million tickets for the Games. Having made a success of that task, they wanted to use the experience they had gained in a new venture: Tickethour. Since then, the company has rapidly grown to become the largest ticketing company in Greece and has gone on to open operations in Cyprus and the Middle East. Tickethour’s revenues in 2010 were USD3.5m.
The next stage in the company’s evolution was to target the Western European market and the United Kingdom was the perfect first step to take. However, the most immediate challenge was deciding how best to set up a local IT infrastructure to host the ticketing application.
