|How do you explain All Access to someone who is unaware?
All Access Advance is the SaaS platform for managing touring artists, venues, and events in real-time from a single dashboard. It is the G-suite for the live event touring industry. It’s a one-of-a-kind, big-picture tool to manage the business behind the stage.What sets All Access apart?
All Access Advance is the result of a service and product we as Tour Managers and founders needed ourselves. We built this company with our music community in mind. The ultimate goal is to connect this community through tech, centralizing the info needed to make the show happen. A user can add event-specific details, monitor current progress, and most importantly, know what to do next using data that is up-to-date everywhere that it lives.
Who is the ideal customer for All Access
All Access is for the entire tour, beginning with tools for the tour manager or venue. At half the cost per day, a live event or tour has an instantaneous system that will manage every day, everyone, and eventually every dollar on the road.
Any funding history?
In 2020 All Access raised $50K from our angel Tweed Recording Academy, as well as deposited $3K in pitch contest grants and prizes. We are currently fundraising and have plans to announce a MicroVenture Crowdfunding campaign very soon.
