AXS Recognized as One of North America's Fastest Growing Companies by Deloitte's 2018 Technology Fast 500™
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AXS, a leading ticketing, data and marketing solutions company, has been recognized for the third consecutive year as one of the 500 fastest growing companies in North America by Deloitte. AXS ranked among the top 10 companies in the Greater Los Angeles area included on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™ list of technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. AXS grew 200 percent during this period due in part to the adoption of its mobile ticketing technology, and was one of only 30 companies in the Greater Los Angeles area included on this year's list.
"Our combination of deep expertise in ticketing and trusted technology allows us to provide our partners in sports and entertainment with a unique and customizable solution," said Bryan Perez, CEO of AXS. "Inclusion on this list for a third consecutive year is a testament to how our team works with our partners to seamlessly connect fans with the events they want to experience."
In 2018, AXS has seen continued adoption of its Mobile ID technology that ensures fans can securely and safely buy, sell and transfer tickets without worrying about paper or PDF tickets that can be easily counterfeited. This technology is among the reasons AEG selected AXS as the official North American resale ticketing partner for the sports franchises and select venues it owns and operates. AXS also expanded internationally; delivering its identity-based ticketing technology in Japan through Yahoo Japan Ticketing, and continuing its growth in the UK by becoming the exclusive ticketing provider of Ricoh Arena.
