Ayojak has launched its integrated Cash-on-Delivery(COD) solution for event ticket sell across India. We have integrated our ‘event ticketing & registration e-commerce engine’ with several logistics solution provider like FedEx(AFL), GharPay, and Santa Claus Couriers. Hence offering Event Organisers to sell their event tickets by cash-on-delivery across all India in more than 3000 cities.
For all COD delivered using Ayojak’s integrated solution, event organizers can expect a detailed COD tracking system and easy, timely and assured delivery of orders. Ayojak has already been privately serving few selected customers to deliver thousands of COD across India.
With COD solution, Ayojak now completes the 360 degree payment & delivery solution (online, retail and cash-on-delivery) to influence the growth of India’s event e-commerce industry”.
We also released US Dollar payment processing solution for event organziers who needed their foreign delegates/attendees pay in USD. This would help you hugely to use Ayojak for entire payment processing.
This is for Co-Admin account in Ayojak. We have been getting feedback from several of our event organizers that they need more than 2 users to manage their event. Ayojak had only 1 prime account holder who could manage. With this new solution, now you can invite 2 more users to login using their own email id and password to manage your event. This will help you to make your full team manage the event registration, data, support queries if any, promotion solution data, reports to analyse.
To add co-admin account, go to your ‘Account’ inside Ayojak, see the option ‘Add Your Co-admin’. In this, you can invite 2 users by entering their email id. Ayojak will send them an invitation and when accepted, they will be added as co-admin.
However Co-admin is basic in the sense, as of now all user have equal permissions. We will be adding more fine grained permissions in coming days such as whether co-admin can edit the event, change the event info or can they send email to attendee? can they download reports, etc. We are happy to hear your suggestions on co-admin feature.
Suggestion/feedback are most welcome on http://twitter.com/ayojak http://facebook.com/ayojak
We have launched a NEW home page keeping in mind that our event organizer should able to use Ayojak as a FULL platform for organizing events. We think an event can be successfully organized if we let event organizer ‘do less and let Ayojak do more’. Ayojak provides end to end solution for organizing event, however when the event gets published, event organizer had to work hard in promoting. Many of you queried/questioned : Why Ayojak doesn’t show events prominently on home and other discovery sections of the site ?
To answer that question and to fill the gap(need), we now enabling our event organizers to not only create & publish an event but also promote to visitors (prospective attendee) on Ayojak.com home page, EventBoard and also via subscribe to event newsletter. Your suggestions are most welcome.
Event Organizing is all about Numbers : how many people will attend, how fast it can be sold, how long it takes to load an event page, how long my buyers are going to be ticket queue, how long it takes to buy a ticket/register for an event…….. several such questions to do with numbers.
We at Ayojak are happy to say that we released next version of Ayojak (yes we are constantly building up the product and currently in 3.4 version) to address all such numbers and give you value more money and use-happily service. This blog post would sounds more tech focused but as an event organizer you would be pleased to see the excellent improvement (we hope).
Our new release addresses your above questions as follows.
1. Now event page in Ayojak loads in less than/equal in 1 sec. Our technology team has massively changed the internals to make 0.1% database calls and 99.9% memcache calls, so whether your event attracts 1000 or 100,000′s user to visit, Ayojak will take the load and load your event page in a second.
2. We also improved the time requires to buy/register for an event. During our test, we found it takes max 3 sec to view an event page->fill the billing detail->pay at payment gateway->get a ticket. This would perfectly supplement your event campaign when you want Ayojak to process 100′s/1000s of ticket during last minute rush booking/ticket sale.
3. We had some glitch in the past when our ticket buying Queue was getting clogged. We took this as a challenge to unearth what was going on.
We re-wrote the message queue using an advanced queue implementation which would work same way if we line up to buy a movie ticket. Every buyer would get 5 minute(configurable) to buy, when they initiate the buy, their request would be in the process queue until time out/they successfully make payment/fails to make payment. Subsequent buyers would able to proceed for buying if the number of tickets they buying is available. As soon as less ticket is available, system auto-magically starts showing user how many ticket is available and how many in queue and how long it may take for getting more tickets if front queue buyers fails to pay/time out.With this implementation, your event will be sold precisely and also respecting each buyer who are in queue for buying.
Some more numbers
Enough of the technology numbers, we are happy to share the registration numbers.
Ayojak is happy & proud to serve events like
Java 7 Launch in Pune – 500+ registrations
UnPluggd 3 – 200+ registrations
TEDxLalBagh – 100+ registrations
IIT Kharagpur TAA Talk – 150+ registrations
and many such events.
We will again be back with more numbers in another iteration. Ayojak’s product development is a non-stop thing and we strive to remove more pains in event organizing.
We hope you will try Ayojak and organize event successfully as UnPluggd, YourStory, StartupWeekend India, IndicThreads (to name few) do.

2. We will be able to monitor Ayojak’s infrastructure, demand patterns and network traffic in real time and take correct measure within seconds.
3. Ayojak’s infrastructure is more secure now due to advanced cloud computing architecture for data backups and server backups.
5. This means now Ayojak can take on millions/billions views for your events (page views, ticket buying, account creation etc) without you having to worry about your site, your server and maintenance.
6. We are bringing this infrastructure without adding any extra cost to you
