The Show Hub allows us to do something we've never been able to do before: centralize all the people, design collaboration, reports, calendars, and communications needed for our productions.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
The Show Hub, the leading provider of production management tools for Theatres, today announces the availability of new production automation capabilities.
"Since our first release in November 2010, we have been very gratified to hear from our customers how much easier and more efficient The Show Hub has made their theatre operations. Even so, the quest to help them do more with less never ends. Speeding up simple day-to-day activities such as the setup of a new production can provide a big boost to productivity," said Clayton Whitfield, CEO, The Show Hub. "In particular, adding the actors and staff to each new production can be repetitive, time-consuming, and error prone. The new copy production feature lets theatres instantly create a new theatrical production plan from an existing one. What is very special about this is the way it helps theatres iteratively improve their operational processes. The new production management function really helps theatres create a 'best practices' model for theatre production without even knowing it"
Added Matthew Woodard, Chief Technology Officer, "Productions by their nature have many moving parts and involve many busy people. It is essential to keep everything organized and to keep the people moving in the right direction. The Show Hub certainly helps make this much easier and more efficient, but we too must be constantly on the lookout for ways to make our application more efficient. After polling some customers, we examined some of the key click streams and were able to reduce by 95% those related to theatrical production set up. More importantly, we are able to capture important historic information that can be used to better produce the next play."
Continued Clayton Whitfield, "Theatres and Theatre Departments are under tremendous pressure to become more efficient managing all of their resources. A very large part of that is the time and effort of their people; wasted effort and time only adds to the pressure. With The Show Hub as their go-to tool, production staff and theatre personnel could always save more time. The new, improved set up functionality dramatically improves the time to set up a new production, enabling our customers to invest more time in higher-value efforts like rehearsal!"
