New York, NY – November 17, 2010

Patron Technology, a company specializing in technology solutions for arts and cultural organizations, today announced an alliance with theLeague of American Orchestras to promote Patron Manager CRM as a preferred technology system to the League’s small-to-medium-sized orchestra members.

Built in partnership with salesforce.com, PatronManager CRM was designed to solve the key problem facing many arts & cultural organizations – important information needed to run the business is stored in multiple files and formats scattered across many computers. PatronManager CRM integrates and manages all of an arts organization’s key operations: tickets and subscriptions, donations, correspondence, e-mail marketing, calendars, and daily tasks. Patron Technology has also tightly integrated into PatronManager CRM its PatronMail e-mail marketing system, used by more than 1,800 cultural organizations to communicate regularly with their patrons and members.

“PatronManager CRM can transform the ability of our smaller budget orchestras to provide a comprehensive service to their customers and donors,” Jesse Rosen, League of American Orchestras President, said. “We are delighted to be working with Patron Technology which has long served our field.”

Patron Technology’s alliance with the League of American Orchestras follows the company’s recent signing of more than 100 PatronManager CRM clients since launching the software this summer. Patron Technology has signed agreements with organizations across the U.S., including the Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues Society, the Maryland Symphony, the Helen Hayes Awards (DC), Labyrinth Theater Company (NY), East West Players (LA), and The New Group (NY).

“Many arts & culture organizations, especially small-to-medium sized organizations, strive to offer unique, compelling offerings for their patrons and fans while using disparate, unconnected computer systems to manage their efforts,” said Eugene Carr, CEO, Patron Technology. “With PatronManager CRM we envisioned a system that would easily – and affordably – connect all of those computer systems. Orchestras that have their ticketing systems tied into their donor and patron info can more easily market future events to the patrons that care most about those events. We look forward to working with many of the members of the League of American Orchestras to power their back offices via PatronManager CRM.”
