Flexible and versatile to meet the needs of large and small organizations, The Patron Edge may be used as a standalone ticketing and subscription management tool or in conjunction with The Raiser’s Edge. In addition to giving you a complete view of donors and patrons, integrating The Patron Edge and The Raiser’s Edge allows you to deliver better customer service while providing you enhanced fundraising and targeted marketing opportunities.


Programs & Events

The Patron Edge provides your members and patrons outstanding advanced, online, and walk-up sales experiences. You can pre-register for events and check in groups at the admissions desk. Use the touch screen interface and manage limited capacity/timed events and attendance per event/time period.


Series & Subscriptions

The Patron Edge allows new subscribers to purchase your fixed or flex subscriptions with ease and renewing subscribers to renew! For your fixed subscriptions, there is no worry that a new subscriber or a subscriber at a lower level can take those important premium subscription seats because you control what seat they get. Online subscribers can purchase their fixed subscription and suggest what events and area they prefer while receiving any benefits or discounts automatically.


Dynamic Pricing

The Patron Edge gives you a quick, completely updated sales view based on your thresholds. Your uniquely developed event criteria shows you what areas and price levels are selling quickly, and easy-to-use built in tools allow you to change price levels or venue configuration to maximize capacity for the best-selling tickets. Changes can be made before and during sales and can auto-update online. Time and date stamps can be placed on pricing to create automatic changes without intervention, and standing room only areas can be added up to a minute before an event.
