You have a fundamental problem doing this.
Each instance has its own sequence of ticket numbers.
What happens when the ticket you want to transfer has an already used number?

If they want to share the system, give them a Queue (or three) and ownership of those queues.
Then you can transfer tickets to your heart's content.

Or let them their own system, but without interplay to your system.

Any other solution must address duplicate ticket numbers.
