The hustle and bustle of the music industry is everlasting, and that’s why the right music business management software is so essential. You need something reliable to help you manage the ins and outs of your artists and gigs. YourTempo has designed software to help with bigger tasks, such as Tour Pro for those roadie days, but we haven’t forgotten about the steps that lead up to those larger moments. Booking software helps manage the daily tasks associated with working hard to book artists. Our specialized booking agency software, Booking Pro, is based on real-life input from industry professionals. They understand the daily grind, and they’ve developed the tools to make the job easier.
YourTempo was launched in 2010 after nearly 4 years of carefully curating the best set of software to transform the way the music industry does business. Our main objective has been to streamline the way industry professionals deal with the grit of the job. With our DevDigital hosted software, you can spend more time focusing on what you do best without getting bogged down with paperwork, scheduling, and other tedious tasks.
Our booking agency software is one of the 4 solutions we have cultivated for the music world. Booking Pro was custom developed with what the average booking agent would need out of music business management software. We have experience in the industry, and we know the ins and outs of the daily grind. Our booking software takes on the brunt of the booking workload and streamlines your daily processes. No matter if you’re a single agent hustling to scale up or an established agency striving for continued growth, our software can help you accomplish your goals.
We know how easy it is to get behind on your booking tasks. One meeting that runs over just a few minutes can lead to a lengthy to-do list that is seemingly never ending. Simply trying to complete a single task can feel impossible if you’re constantly being pulled in a dozen directions at once. It’s overwhelming, for certain, but by no means is it unavoidable.
For starters, the daily grind needs to have a process to it, and that’s one of the biggest accomplishments of our booking software. Booking Pro has an intuitive design with dedicated sections for:
- Making offers
- Managing contracts
- Tracking deposits
- Business reports (such as routing sheets)
- Artist itineraries
- …and more
It’s easy to establish your own rhythm and flow within its interface, and you can make your own workflow within the platform.
Booking Pro has its own calendar integrated within the software to simplify all of your tasks into an easy-to-read schedule. If you have something coming up on the books, your calendar will display the details. You can customize your calendar and even add detailed notes about specific bookings. The calendar also allows for schedule blocking, artist avails, itineraries, time frames, layouts and more. This design is intended to bring some order to your typical bulky, chaotic schedule.
When you spend so much time booking your talent and organizing events, it can be hard to establish connections. Business and professional relationships are essential to continue moving forward in the industry, and our booking agency software integrates this into its platform.
Booking Pro has a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tool dedicated to establishing, nurturing, and keeping up with those essential professional contacts. The customer relationship management section is devoted to making this process as easy as possible. Within this tool, you can take advantage of several key functions including:
- Deal records. This is a complete table including your deals with buyers and venues. These deals serve as representations for potential booking pitches for your artists at specific venues.
- Activities. You can use this function to journal your communication between your business, buyers and venues. You can use the activity log to enter in detailed accounts of your communications before, during, and after pitches.
- Follow-ups. Touching base frequently can be what either makes or breaks a potential deal. It’s best to have your communications logged, accounted, and planned for. Any time you set an activity within your log, you’ll be prompted with the option to set a follow-up for the same contact. After setting a follow-up, you will receive daily alerts to remind yourself to reach back out. If you’d prefer a task list, there’s an option for that, too.
Using each of these tools in conjunction is a simple way to nurture those professional relationships that will help yourself and your artists grow. You can establish important connections, keep up with your clients with ease, and have a centralized location for your communications.
There’s no need to give into the pressures of the daily grind and struggle to keep up with your work. Being a booking agent or owning a booking agency is hard, rewarding work. It takes time and dedication to accomplish what you’re doing every day, and the right tools for the job will help you become more successful, efficient, and less stressed. Our booking agency software is the first step towards gaining more autonomy and taking power back against your enormous workload and schedule. If you’re needing extra help outside of booking, consider looking into Talent Buying, Publishing, and Tour Pro. Get started with our software today by giving us a call at 615-385-5873.
