Fobi’s new Event Management Solution (EMS) is a sophisticated, end-to-end resource for booking and ticketing developed using the Fobi Wallet pass, SimplyBook’s calendaring system and a client branded booking webpage which was custom built by Fobi. Fobi EMS allows INEOS to engage with their guests using a solution that manages resources, digitizes ticketing, and automates bookings and event-based notifications.
GPJ Creative Technologist, Zara Kerwood stated “Fobi has been instrumental in making this experience successful for INEOS with their Wallet pass solution that can be used to create a new and more efficient communication and ticketing tool that leverages the mobile wallet. We are excited to see the results and to work with FOBI on custom solutions for our other clients.”

We are excited to be selected to build a custom solution for a top client such as INEOS that helps pave the way for better user experiences and assists enterprise clients in building end-to-end customer experience platforms. We are very confident in this project and are looking forward to working with GPJ on similar projects in the future.”

PROJECT MARKS FOBI’S CONTINUED TRANSITION TO PAID DEALS, WITH A CONTRIBUTION TO REVENUE THIS QUARTER & MOVING FORWARD
