Automating Paperwork Reduces Cost and Aids Growth
Paradise City Arts Festivals, a promoter of high end fine and functional art shows, manages applications, images, contracts and booth information for thousands of artists. While using a paper-based approach to manage artist contracts was sufficient for a few shows, the time, effort and cost to do so became a barrier to growth.
Using the existing Microsoft Office environment familiar to the staff, we created fully automated procedures to process applications and images, jury and curate shows, generate individualized contracts and distribute them electronically. Reports and work orders taken from artist contracts are automatically generated for decorators and subcontractors. Order information and contract status is systematically updated with the QuickBooks financial management system.
