“eMazzanti has been with Repertorio as our technology advisor for more than 10 years."
Hoboken, NJ and New York, NY (PRWEB) July 30, 2011
As the nation’s most active Spanish-language theater company with over 350 productions a year, Repertorio Espanol, once again tapped eMazzanti Technologies for the latest IT support and Microsoft solutions to meet its demanding performance schedule. A new case study applauds the long-running relationship and results. The case study is available at http://www.emazzanti.net/services/success-stories/.
Big Schedule Small Resources
Repertorio Español’s mission is to present the great wealth of Latin American and Spanish culture on stage. Associate Producer José Antonio Cruz says, “We present plays from Latin America, classical plays from Spain, and plays written by Hispanic Americans. We also do musicals, concerts, zarzuelas, and flamenco shows. Repertorio is a true repertory company, which means that we have approximately 15 different productions that we rotate constantly. Every year, we do 350 performances of these 15 different productions. It’s a very European way of doing theater. As a repertory company, we allow our audiences to enjoy a wide range of productions.”
Clearly, this requires a major, ongoing commitment of time and resources. “We are the most active Spanish-language theater company in the United States, but we’re still very small,” Cruz says. “We have a staff of 12 people, which sounds large, but there’s a lot of work to do.”
eMazzanti and Office 2010 Play Supporting Role
In order to do that work efficiently, Repertorio enlists the support of long-time technology consultant eMazzanti Technologies. “eMazzanti Technologies keeps us running,” declares Cruz. “They have been with Repertorio as our technology advisor for more than 10 years. From the very beginning when we first brought computers into the organization, they have always advised us on the things that we needed to get, and the technology that was best for the theater, so that we got exactly what we needed.”
“We realized that we needed to be more efficient and more effective in the way that we do business,” recalls Cruz. The company had been using Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2007. eMazzanti Technologies reviewed its IT, and determined Repertorio would benefit from an upgrade. “eMazzanti Technologies advised us on the benefits of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 and Windows 7,” states Cruz, “and we're very glad we made the move.”
Performance Reviews Highlights
Repertorio Espanol is benefiting from eMazzanti Technologies full-spectrum IT support and the new Office 2010 Professional in four major ways:
- Microsoft volume licensing-providing standardized versions across all desktops along with international language packs for language specific features
- Improved staff collaboration-enables the rapid development of fund-raising proposals with streamlined colleague review process
- Better fiscal and financial management-simplifies inventory tracking for audio and video assets
- Greater productivity-eases the coordination and tracking of all marketing efforts to over 85,000 area households
“We are all very passionate about what we do,” declares Cruz. “We love that we’re serving our community, that we’re one of the few theaters in the country that’s serving such a huge segment of the population. We’re serving them in their own language, with work that represents the culture of the communities they come from. We’re very proud of our work, and we’re grateful to eMazzanti for enabling us to bring the best Spanish language theater to our community.”
