Key Challenges – Wanted customised and intelligent reporting for growing venue business
Head of Events at Cranmore Park, Angela Peat explains, “We were no longer paying for support for our old system and as our business was expanding we needed to upgrade our technology. In particular, we wanted to be able to easily and automatically create bespoke reports on areas such as occupancy and the level of revenues that our spaces were generating, without having to resort to using Excel spreadsheets.”
