Capitol Center for the Arts

Groundplan Website

What They Needed

Capitol Center for the Arts had an aging website that couldn’t keep up with their busy performance schedule and a vibrant school series program that serves over 14,000 students a year. Having migrated to PatronManager, they were struggling with a large amount of extra data entry between their ticketing system and their website. A recent brand exploration had been applied to their print materials, but it was time to adapt the look and feel to their online presence.

What We Accomplished

The Groundplan plugin was a perfect fit for CCA. The Groundplan syncing functionality with their PatronManager events immediately cut their content management work in half. We simplified the school group ordering process with a custom form that is also fed by event data. Because most shows at CCA run for one night only, the automatic updates of ticket availability keep the site updated quickly right when the staff needs to run off to the box office. Finally, a venue gallery helps the team manage the additional revenue stream of rentals and event management by providing clear planning tools to renters. We topped off the project by developing their brand further with a responsive, angular design to help draw the eye to the most important content.
