Patron Technology Wraps Up 2011 With More Than 250 PatronManager CRM Clients

Arts organizations of all sizes are moving from multiple databases and multiple systems to PatronManager CRM.

New York, NY – January 25, 2012

Patron Technology ended 2011 on a high note with more than 250 clients for PatronManager CRM, the all-in-one cloud-based system that integrates box office functionality, fundraising, e-mail marketing, and staff collaboration. Since the launching of the system in 2010, small and mid-sized cultural organizations in more than 34 states, Canada, and the U.K. now use PatronManager CRM, and the list continues to grow as organizations realize the power and ease of use of PatronManager CRM.

Stephanie Riso, Operations Director of the Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre, says, “PatronManager CRM, which came highly recommended, finally enables us to consolidate our marketing, development, and ticketing into one place – a critical need for our company. It was brilliant of PatronManager to team up with Salesforce to create a dynamic system which will no doubt propel our 15-year old organization into adulthood. Thank you PatronManager!”

Mark Malkovich IV, General Manager of the Newport Music Festival, confidently adds, “We partner with excellence, and investing in the Newport Music Festival’s future with PatronManager CRM was a no-brainer.”

According to Eugene Carr, Founder and CEO of Patron Technology, “What continues to energize us as we develop and increase PatronManager CRM’s functionality is the reality of having a system built on the Salesforce.com platform that offers small and mid-sized organizations technology just as powerful as that used by the biggest arts organizations. And since it’s a 100% cloud-based system, it’s affordable for these small and midsized arts organizations. The speed at which we’ve continued to sign up clients shows that PatronManager CRM fills a significant need in our industry.”
