About Glasgow Rocks

THE GLASGOW ROCKS will use SABO – a powerful & feature rich web based ticketing system to manage all aspects of their venue from the box office to the marketing department.

The Glasgow Rocks, Scotland’s most successful BBL Pro Basketball team located in the Braehead Arena, Glasgow, will use The SABO integrated ticketing, fundraising, and customer relationship management (CRM) and access control solution.

"We have researched available ticketing and database systems for the past year, and SABO’s web–based easy to use system is the one that meets our needs," said Bruce Cook, General Manager of The Glasgow Rocks. "We are in the very beginning stages of a marketing campaign, and SABO’s seamless view of our customers and clients, coupled with the management tools that we can now place in the hands of the many organizations that call The Scottish Rocks home, convinced us that now was the time to make the jump".

Using SABO’s integrated, single database solution, The Forum Waterford will have access to ticketing, fundraising, marketing tools, crm and access control functionality allowing all departments manage their operation from one live real time system.

While the team competes in both cup and league events, their biggest focus is on creating an interactive, fun day out for all the family on game days. The SABO system provides the data management and analysis tools necessary to improve relationships with existing customers, and marketing tools to attract new ones.

Implementing the Solution
