Orono, ME, February 12, 2020: Maine technology company CourseStorm announced a partnership agreement with leading ticketing, fundraising, and marketing solution for the arts, PatronManager, a Patron Technology product. The partnership will enable PatronManager clients to register students for classes and workshops with CourseStorm while automatically bringing in customer data to PatronManager with a planned integration.

Syncing contact and registration information from CourseStorm’s streamlined class registration system into PatronManager will provide a more detailed picture of an organization’s supporters, helping create stronger, more profitable relationships for programs in the arts.

“We are excited by this partnership with PatronManager, which increases access to educational opportunities in arts and culture for people of all ages. As lovers of both education and the arts, we look forward to helping PatronManager’s customers grow their arts education programs,” said CourseStorm’s CEO Brian Rahill. 

With arts organizations continuing to offer courses and workshops to diversify their programming and revenue streams, CourseStorm’s streamlined enrollment management system allows them to take advantage of sophisticated features such as creating a customizable dedicated online course catalog and easy family registration for parents enrolling one or multiple children. This partnership will support PatronManager clients in expanding education opportunities for their audiences and communities, making it easier to register and submit payments online.

“We are thrilled to be introducing PatronManager users to CourseStorms’s powerful software,” said Michelle Paul, Managing Director at PatronManager. “We couldn’t be happier in this partnership which will bring a highly requested solution for class registration and management to our clients.”
