BOULDER, CO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — In the space of less than one year, from development of our first joint product together, TourIntel, to its ground breaking free version released just weeks ago, CelebrityAccess and ArtistForce have dramatically changed the landscape of Box Office score management.
When ArtistForce and CelebrityAccess first met we had great respect for each other’s vision, and products. We knew that if we could just find a way to highlight one another’s strengths we could develop great products together that would help change the entertainment industry.
Our first goal was to develop easy to use, ground breaking software that merged Box Office score data in ways never seen before. We’ve succeeded in creating this with TourIntel.
TourIntel was released as a free service last month and the response has been greater than expected with thousands enrolling and accessing the site regularly. Talent buyers, agents, managers, venues, ad agencies, and others in the business of live events have all visited the new website and made great use of the available reports.
We could not be more pleased with the response and feedback we’ve received. The service handles the high volume beautifully and box office reports are delivered smoothly. We have learned a great deal about how to enhance the service and we are already working on some new features. As anticipated, the industry recognizes the value of what we are doing.
This is but the first of many new products we plan to develop together for the entertainment industry.
