Let's Look at Some Examples

Musician Management

Assigning musicians to events is a perfect example of how Band Pencil makes things easier. Once a musician has been assigned, you can send then an availability request to see if they are able to perform. If they respond with yes, you can enter their fee amount which allows them to submit an automatically generated invoice. Once you've set their invoice status to paid we automatically send them a receipt.

Musicians can also login and view all their upcoming and past events via the Member Portal, creating a 'self-service' approach to your musicians to access their information.

Client Management

Managing clients in a swift and professional manor is fundamental to the success of your business. With Band Pencil, all the event information is kept in one place. Clients can view the event information in the Client Portal. They can sign contracts, download files such as receipts and invoices and you can even upload files to the event so the client can see that too.

This is not just handy for the client, but it keeps everything in one place for you. The information and files are stored on your account forever, so you can always refer back to the event if need be.
