How it Works

ArtsVision is based around a company-wide calendar that acts as the unified and definitive source of information across your entire organization. Users can view data in various formats including spreadsheet and zoom views, use mouse over effects for event detail, apply permissions and filters to control access to the data and ensure users can see only the activities and data they need.

Detailed Project and Event planning

ArtsVision provides flexible Detailed Project and Event planning for any type of activity. Whether you are producing, presenting or renting, ArtsVision can accommodate your needs for tracking programs, production details, education, marketing, sponsorship, touring and venue information. You define the types of activities for your organization and ArtsVision allows you to drill down to all of your details via department-specific tabs, with the possibility of creating custom tabs as required.

Company-Wide Address Book

The company-wide address book stores contact and detailed background information for all personnel, artists, vendors, and other companies including performance and contract history, professional skills, and professional affiliations.  Custom tabs can be created to ensure you are capturing exactly the information you need for your organization.

ArtsVision

Out of the Box

ArtsVision has been developed in conjunction with and continues to service a wide variety of clients including major performance venues, opera houses, and orchestras worldwide.  With every implementation ArtsVision grows stronger and the amount of functionality continues to increase.  We have taken all that we have learned and created ArtsVision “out of the box” versions specifically configured to address the needs most often found in specific types of organizations.  These pre-determined combinations of modules are designed to provide your organization with the full array of ArtsVision’s underlying goals of increased efficiency and greater collaboration across your organization while speeding up the implementation process so you are up and running more quickly.

Because each organization is unique these out of the box versions are in no way limited in functionality, and it is always possible to broaden the scope of your implementation to incorporate additional modules and services that will benefit your organization.

These out of the box versions are ArtsVision Performance Venue, Opera/Theater, Orchestra, and Conservatory.  Some of the version specific modules you will find standard are:

Performance Venue

 

Resource Management

ArtsVision for Venue provides a comprehensive system for allocating resources to projects and translating those resources to invoice line items.  You have complete flexibility to organize your resources by categories and types you define along with price lists to track the different rates available for each resource.

Venue Calendar

Although the amount of detail held in the ArtsVision Calendar makes producing your events more efficient than ever, sometimes you only need an overview of what is going on in your spaces.  The Venue Calendar is configured to group spaces together in the view you want to quickly view what is happening across your campus.  With just a click you can access more detailed event information and project reports if you want.

Daily call sheet

ArtsVision understands that your daily schedule is one of the most important documents created by an opera company.  While we offer the option of a standard daily schedule, we are happy to work with you to create exactly the format you need so that all of the critical information your company needs to make every day more efficient is quickly available and easily communicated.

Planning Calendar

All season programming has to begin somewhere, which is why ArtsVision developed a flexible planning calendar to give season planning managers a space to sketch out ideas for productions, rehearsal and performance periods and easily move dates around with a drag and drop feature so you can organize your season exactly they way you envision.  Using the idea of scenarios, you can create an unlimited number of versions of your seasons and compare the differences to find exactly what works.  Once you have the perfect blend, make a scenario live and share your information with the rest of your organization to continue more detailed planning.

Works of Art Library
