The Roses Catalyst themselves into a new Website and booking system

Following their announcement that The Roses theatre in Tewkesbury was successful in their application to Catalyst funding last August, the arts centre are now pleased to announce the completion of a new Box Office System and Web Site which was funded through the scheme.

Funded through the Arts Council, Catalyst is a grant which encourages organisations to maximise their fundraising potential by providing them with new funds in year one that the organisation can allocate to developing new streams of fundraising income. In years two and three, Catalyst will then match fund any income as generated through these new streams.

In August, The Roses announced their plans to develop a new website and booking system, which will increase their donations potential, along with developments to The Roses Charity Shop, and a series of fundraising trailers which will be shown before feature films in the auditorium.

We were thrilled to be awarded the grant explains Beckie Smith, Marketing And Press Manager at The Roses. Investing some of the money into the launch of the new site and booking system to coincide with each other has proven to be a epic challenge, but our customers will notice an immediate difference, so it is all worth it.

The new website and booking system come hand in hand, as the customer is now able to Quick Donate from any page on the website, and through any page when paying for their goods online.

The theatre hopes that they will see an increase in philanthropic giving, corporate sponsorship and friends memberships as a direct result of the raised profile given to the theatres fundraising efforts on the new site as they are now significantly easier to find, and the benefits to supporters are much clearer.

When booking online, customers are now able to opt in to leaving the registered charity a donation at the point of purchase. Rather than simply assuming everyone is happy to pay a stock donation, the new booking system looks at a customers shopping basket and is able to round the donation up to the nearest 2, making sure your donation is suitable to your order.

Given the enhanced intellectual reporting capabilities of the new booking system, staff at The Roses are hoping to make some well grounded forecasts as to how to maximise donations through targeted marketing and relationship management.

We are really looking forward to finding our more about our customers and audience members says Alison West, Development Manager at The Roses. Looking into booking

and donations trends and preferences should really help us build better and stronger relationships with our customers she continues.

With the opportunity to have all new donation income match funded by the Arts Council up to a threshold of 80,000 for two consecutive years, The Roses is very keen to explore all opportunities through these new opportunities

The Roses new website is designed by Deckchair, a Bristol based design agency and the new booking system is provided by Patron Base UK, both of whom have significant experience in arts and charitable marketing campaigns.
