Soft­ware Inte­gra­tion to Max­i­mize Mem­ber­ship Man­age­ment and Vis­i­tor Engage­ment for Cul­tur­al Mar­ket Operators

Orlan­do, FLA. (July 14, 2020) – acces­so Tech­nol­o­gy Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the pre­mier tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions provider for attrac­tions and venues world­wide, has entered into a strate­gic part­ner­ship with Cuse­um, a renowned provider of engage­ment soft­ware for muse­ums and arts non­prof­its, to com­ple­ment the pow­er of the acces­so Sir­iuswareSMpoint-of-sale solu­tion for muse­um and cul­tur­al insti­tu­tion oper­a­tors around the globe.

Through this part­ner­ship, acces­so Sir­iusware clients will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to lever­age ful­ly sup­port­ed, turn-key access to Cuseum’s vis­i­tor, mem­ber and donor engage­ment tools, all of which are designed to pro­vide patrons a rich­er, more mem­o­rable end-to-end expe­ri­ence via con­tact­less, dig­i­tal solu­tions – a key dif­fer­en­tia­tor for oper­a­tors seek­ing sup­port for safe and secure reopen­ing in the new age of phys­i­cal distancing. 

With access to Cuseum’s Dig­i­tal Mem­ber­ship Card solu­tion, acces­so clients can empow­er patrons to make the most of their mem­ber­ship expe­ri­ence, both on- and off-site, pro­vid­ing all of the ben­e­fits and func­tions of a tra­di­tion­al mem­ber­ship mod­el – includ­ing card access, mem­ber­ship ser­vices and exclu­sive dis­counts – from the con­ve­nience of each patron’s mobile device. Addi­tion­al­ly, insti­tu­tions will ben­e­fit from enhanced vis­i­tor engage­ment func­tion­al­i­ty with the abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate with patrons in real-time to pro­vide per­son­al­ized offers, mem­ber­ship renew­al reminders and more, all avail­able through intu­itive, ful­ly dig­i­tal channels. 

We’re very excit­ed to part­ner with Cuse­um to enhance Accesso’s robust offer­ings for our clients in the cul­tur­al space, a mar­ket we’ve proud­ly served for two decades,” said Steve Brown, acces­so CEO. In Cuse­um, we’ve found a tru­ly like-mind­ed part­ner, and this enhanced, dig­i­tal approach to tra­di­tion­al mem­ber­ship ser­vices and vis­i­tor engage­ment is par­tic­u­lar­ly cru­cial as we work to increase effi­cien­cy and reduce phys­i­cal touch­points with­in the attrac­tions and venues we serve.” 

The acces­so Sir­iusware solu­tion address­es every point-of-sale need across a venue, uni­fy­ing tick­et­ing, mem­ber­ship, group sales, retail, food and bev­er­age, rentals and more with­in a sin­gle sys­tem, elim­i­nat­ing the need for sep­a­rate solu­tions. In lever­ag­ing this tech­nol­o­gy, sup­port­ed by Cuseum’s cut­ting-edge Dig­i­tal Mem­ber­ship Card solu­tion, cul­tur­al mar­ket oper­a­tors will have a holis­tic set of tools at their dis­pos­al to height­en vis­i­tor engage­ment and build brand loy­al­ty along each step of the patron journey.

We are thrilled to part­ner with Acces­so and are eager to watch their clients har­ness the pow­er of this new inte­gra­tion to fur­ther ampli­fy the per­son­al­ized, dig­i­tal expe­ri­ence mod­ern con­sumers crave,” said Bren­dan Ciecko, CEO & Founder at Cuse­um. The promise this part­ner­ship holds for cul­tur­al mar­ket oper­a­tors, as well as their invalu­able patrons, is vir­tu­al­ly limitless.”
