The Tessitura Network Inc., the leading provider of enterprise software technology, services and learning community for the arts and cultural sector, is pleased to announce that the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota is a new member of the Tessitura Network.
Children’s Theatre Company, the largest youth-focused theatre company in the United States, creates extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire young people and their communities. The organization sought a database system that would allow the tracking of all aspects of a patron’s involvement, and they will utilize Tessitura’s unified platform to manage customer relationships, tickets, classes, marketing, fundraising, memberships, reporting and more. Says Tim Jennings, Managing Director of Children’s Theatre Company: “When we started looking for a new way to examine our patron relationships, we looked no further than Tessitura. As many of my staff and I had previous experience with the Tessitura Software at other theatres, it was the intuitive choice and, frankly, the one that met our deepest needs in addressing comprehensive patron profiles and data analysis. I am very much looking forward to moving ahead with its installation and to rejoining the Tessitura Network!”
Jack Rubin, President of Tessitura Network, notes: “Our users tell us that Tessitura is a transformational tool that enables an organization to improve business operations and communications both internally and with their constituents online and in person. We look forward to meeting Children’s Theatre Company’s needs across all departments and enhancing their business intelligence capabilities, just as we do for our 400 other arts and cultural organizations around the globe.”
