Website

In partnership with alienpen we have been involved in the development of the Vamos Theatre website for nearly ten years.

The website is built upon the ExpressionEngine Content Management System (EECMS).

With alienpen we are also the developers of the Protouree Touring management software used by Vamos Theatre to manage their tours and events.

As part of the wesbite project we developed an EECMS add-on to interface with the Protouree system so that public information about their performances can be displayed on the website as and when it is required. This means that the Vamos Theatre staff don't have to do any additional work in order to display tour locations, dates, venue and box office details on the website as this is taken directly from Protouree.

Any changes to their touring schedule are reflected automatically on the website.

Vamos Theatre can control the touring information that appears on website directly within Protouree without needing to also log in to the CMS.

Tight integration between Protouree and ExpressionEngine gives Vamos Theatre complete control over the public display of their tour schedules and ensures that changes and new performances are reflected immediately on the website without additional work.
