Why did you build Artful.ly?
We decided that we could build something better than the other ticketing and CRM tools already available. Way back in 2011, many of Fractured Atlas's 35,000 member artists and arts groups weren't happy with their options. Over the years we've built several bits of software to manage our own business, and with our knowledge of arts and technology, Artful.ly was a natural next step.
Artful.ly was made to be different. It lets you sell tickets on your own site, it integrates sales and donations in one customer record, and it's more nimble and customizable than other systems. There are no licensing fees just to keep the system running and no contracts to sign.
And that's just the beginning. We engage with artists and arts organizations who use our software. We encourage both ticket-buyers and ticket-sellers to suggest new features, and we allow everyone to vote on features they like most. Fractured Atlas's goal is to help the artistic community, and Artful.ly is one step to fulfilling that goal.
