Scottsdale, Ariz. – April 11th, 2017 – ReplyBuy, the mobile sales platform that enables businesses with a unique combination of artificial intelligence, messaging, payments & digital commerce announces today its 100th partnership. The addition of the Calgary Flames to the company’s elite clientele highlights the widespread adoption of ReplyBuy as a new form of e-commerce across the market. The company is also proud to announce the Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Whitecaps, Texas Tech and New Orleans Pelicans as clients, all of which have recently embraced the platform. This milestone of over 100 clients has been achieved largely due to the seamless new experience of connecting sellers and buyers. ReplyBuy provides businesses with a robust back-end suite of solutions to drive consumer engagement and completely eliminate the buyer friction on any mobile device. As one user named Steven Rose said, “They literally turned me from a fan watching the Coyotes on my couch to an in-arena attendee for a future game within three minutes (and it would’ve been less if I wasn’t being a nosy technologist).”
The company was also recently honored as one of four companies nationally to be nominated for the “Best in Mobile Fan Experience 2017” award by the prestigious Sports Business Journal. The premier industry event will take place on May 24 in New York City to honor various nominees such as the Chicago Cubs, NBC Sports, Facebook, JPMorgan Chase, ESPN and others in their respective categories during the ceremony.

As Arizona Coyotes VP of Marketing Josh Marguiles describes, “ReplyBuy is one of the best technologies – period – that I have come across to market our product to our fans. The ability to cut through the clutter of email and get our ticket packages directly to their phone screens has increased single game ticket sales, and is an absolute win/win for us and ReplyBuy. Our fans are seeing the best offers on the right screen at the right time, and we are driving additional attendees to every game. Our partnership has allowed us to reach new Coyotes fans with over 36 percent of tickets being sold to new buyers. Our goal is to get every Coyote fan onto the ReplyBuy platform!”
ReplyBuy has experienced a year of growth and innovation, having recently debuted ReplyBuy.ai, in a closed beta as a concierge style service that incorporates Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) into the platform. “We are in a unique situation in that we are able to heavily leverage these emerging technologies (AI, NLP, Machine Learning, etc.) and combine them in a way that takes a major step forward within the e-commerce ecosystem, while at the same time providing valuable insight into the persona of the buyer,” says Tony Saia, CTO and Co-Founder.
This pioneering service was created to further support the company’s industry partners and their clients. “Empowering fans to purchase tickets with a simple reply text message is pure magic! It’s a seamless buying process that provides the fans with the instant gratification they’re looking for – especially millennials,” said Joe Sharpe, Associate AD of Ticket Sales from the University of Kentucky.
As even more clients engage with ReplyBuy, the company plans to continually evolve so it can proactively meet its audience’s needs and wants, helping them to bridge the gap with the next generation of consumers.
“Reaching 100 partnerships is a fantastic milestone reached through a tremendous team effort within the organization. We have a strong group of A-players,” says Josh Manley, CEO & Founder of ReplyBuy. “The platform adoption itself is rewarding to see, but it’s the bigger statement it makes that matters most. Reaching this volume of high-caliber partners is the best possible validation that our new style of e-commerce is working and providing fantastic results to the people we care most about: our partners and their customers. Businesses that utilize our platform want to hit the easy button from an engagement standpoint to transact instantly with their consumers. We’re constantly innovating to make sure that we exceed their expectations, set the bar higher and deliver on that promise as an organization.”
“ReplyBuy is one of our most important distribution partners. They allow us to connect with our audience quickly and efficiently when we have last-minute ticket availability. The whole team at ReplyBuy makes the process easy and provides some of the best service we have experienced in the industry,” says Joe Cote as the SVP of Sales & Service at the Portland Timbers.
ReplyBuy is a next generation mobile sales platform that combines artificial intelligence, messaging, payments and digital commerce in a single platform to deliver instant buyer gratification from the businesses they choose.
