INDEV created a custom live streaming platform for Poreia Theatre, fully scalable and fully embedded within their website. End-to-end development of the product, from inception to launch was completed within the span of less than a couple of months. The benefits of a custom software solution, versus using an existing third party live stream service quickly became apparent, as the platform was able to incorporate features such as integration with the theatre’s existing membership scheme, custom pricing and scheduling, donations, cancellations, refunds, vouchers, email notifications, the ability to plug and play with any filming crew, custom reporting, complete and easy administration and obviously no third party fees. The live stream player experience is seamless from any device and sits behind a secure log in system. Poreia’s existing website was also modernised to properly accommodate the live streaming features and provide optimal navigation paths.
Poreia Theatre utilised the full spectrum of INDEV’s services; Business & Technology Consulting to conceptualise the product and clear every obstacle along the way, Data Science & Business Intelligence to monitor, forecast and analyse every aspect of the product, UI/UX Design & Consulting to ensure optimal visual communication and user experience, and Software Development to make it all happen. INDEV’s Digital Strategy business unit followed with the 360 promotion of the theatre’s plays, resulting in near instantaneous awareness building and tens of thousands of ticket sales from the very first plays. Combined with the quality and experience of Poreia Theatre’s artistic direction, the result is a software solution that arguably sets a new standard for live stream theatre productions in Greece and internationally.
