World leader in admission control and ticketing software, Gateway Ticketing Systems UK is offering to assist attractions in the Cultural, Arts and Heritage faced with spending cuts.
In the wake of Lancashire County Council’s recent announcement regarding the closure of 5 museums, the company says it is ‘ideally placed’ to help organisations review their business plans, strategies and approaches going forward.
Furthermore, Gateway is confident that it has the products and processes to increase efficiency, make savings and generate new lines of income.
Andy Povey, Business Development Director at Gateway Ticketing Systems UK commented,
“Whilst the news from Lancashire County Council is shocking, it is a huge wake up call for those in the industry. Heritage organisations must face the challenge of bridging the funding gap and this can only be achieved by opening up new income streams.”
The company acknowledges that it is a cultural shirt which many will find difficult – how does a venue or institution remain true to traditional values and ethos, whilst becoming more commercially-minded?
Povey says: “Turning your free visitors into members, donors and contributors is vital for ensuring your future.”
Gateway provides ticketing solutions to a wide range of attractions including Roman Baths & Fashion Museum in Bath, Kew Gardens and the V&A Museum in London.
