Introducing AgileLINK VOD
Last month, Agile Ticketing Solutions introduced its newest product: AgileLink VOD. With AgileLink VOD, your organization can invite your patrons and members to experience curated films and live experiences from the comfort of their homes. With a simple click of a link, patrons will be able to view those films/experiences for a limited time. This allows organizations to continue to deliver content to their patrons, while also making a source of revenue during closures.
Why use AgileLink VOD? There are many impressive benefits this new service can bring to your organization. The main benefit is that it will allow your organization to bring in a source of revenue while temporarily closed. Many people are eager to find more content to consume as they are in their homes for the time being. This service allows them to stream new content through your organization, which will at the same time help your organization bring in a revenue. Along with that, the service is completely free to use; we only charge a small ticketing fee each time a movie is rented. This service can also be operated completely remotely, making it very simple to run.
More and more organizations around the country are utilizing the streaming model during this pandemic. It provides the most effective alternative medium to showcase your content to your patrons. AgileLink VOD gives you the opportunity to do the same for your organization, quickly and easily, and immediately start making a revenue. We invite you to try it out today.

Projects to work on While Your Organization is Closed
Now is the time to be working on all the things that your organization has been putting off due to time. Organizations all across the world are being forced or recommended to close until further notice. As there is no official date where everything should be back to normal, many are uncertain what they should be doing in the meantime. Here are some recommendations on what your organization can be working on until they reopen.
One very important thing to utilize at this time is your social media accounts. Your patrons will be wondering how this situation is affecting your organization. It is important to keep everyone informed and updated with what is going on at your organization. As closing will no doubly have a negative effect on revenue, social media is a good place to bring this attention to your patrons. You can let people know the economic implications of the shutdown, which can possibly result in donations or other sources of temporary revenue. Also, with more people at home they are more likely to be online and on social media. This is a good opportunity to both give updates and to also advertise your organization to more people.
As this pandemic is going to affect many industries for a while, it is important to conduct research. This can include research on how ticket sales will be affected with months to come. Theaters should also look at which movies will be delaying releases, and how many productions are being postponed. If you had a current schedule lined up, it unfortunately will be affected, and this is a good time to get a head start on making changes.
Another task to focus on during this time is to keep up to date on anything needed for tax season. If there is any work you have been holding off on, now is the time to complete it. It may be a difficult time to work on any repairs and renovations due to the circumstances. However, if there are any changes that can realistically be made, no matter how minor, this would also be a good time to think about following through with them, as the properties will be vacant and available.
Lastly, keep in constant touch with your employees, and make sure they know what is going on. Assure them that they will be taken care of as best as possible. Do anything you can to consistently update them, and reduce any anxiety they may be facing from this situation.

SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR CLIENTS
Today, we stand with our clients and the global performing arts/cinema community in solidarity to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) and limit the burden on our healthcare system.
However, we also understand the incredible burden that this places on our partners. Moreover, the sacrifices your organizations are making.
As a company, we understand the importance of limiting interpersonal interaction, proper communal hygiene, and social distancing. As we mentioned during the recent storms that affected our area a few weeks ago, our company has already developed and practiced our crisis continuity plan. I am happy to say that we were able to operate seamlessly without any delays or degradation of service or support.
It’s safe to say that the next few weeks will be tough. Our team will be standing by ready to help your organization deal with matters concerning your venue. We will continue to follow the CDC’s recommendations of social distancing, telecommuting, communal hygiene, and we recommend that you encourage your teams to do the same.
We look forward to connecting with you as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
To your health,
Richard Steward, CEO
