TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) - AudienceView, a world leader in e-commerce software for events and entertainment organisations, proudly announces its selection as the new technology partner of the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft, Suffolk, UK. Originally opened in the Victorian era, the venue boasts a variety of live entertainment options, including West End musicals, top comedy acts, touring drama and musical productions, opera, dance and concerts. It is one of only two venues outside of London to be granted a prestigious residency of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and annually hosts the largest professional pantomime on the East Anglian coast. The Marina Theatre also operates a successful cinema operation, with the largest screen and film auditorium in town.
"After researching various systems, AudienceView was the obvious choice given its flexibility and overall depth. AudienceView also serves some of the biggest brands in the UK market, so we know we are in very good hands," said Lee Henderson, CEO of the Marina Theatre. "As an independent charitable arts organisation, we need to work with partners who can help us increase our market share, develop our varied audiences and become more resilient in these ever-changing times, especially in the arts. We are delighted to join the worldwide AudienceView family."
AudienceView comes complete with robust, tightly integrated features, including ticketing, e-commerce, fundraising, customer relationship management (CRM), email marketing, content management (CMS) and powerful analytics. This will help the Marina Theatre drive new and incremental revenue, improve the overall customer experience and increase efficiencies.
The Marina Theatre highly values in-house control of the CMS and knowing everything they create will be device responsive, making the online experience user-friendly for mobile, tablet and laptop users. The team also plans to automate its email marketing and reporting so that staff can focus on big-picture strategies.
In-house productions, touring events and resident tenants can be managed by the single solution while maintaining each brand's unique identity. Defined security levels also make it possible for certain information to be shared while other data remains protected.
