Resolve Problems, Questions & Requests Efficiently with a Personal Touch

Log, track, and resolve customer service issues and requests.


Log Issues


Assign Tasks


Reporting & Strategy

Log issues such as customer feedback on shows or exhibitions, lost and found items, and more. Then assign follow-up actions to the appropriate staff member.

View all your team’s tasks so that you can make sure follow-up is happening on time. Set your preferences to display assigned tasks as soon as you log in.

Report on CSI data to see trends: Are complaints being resolved faster? Do customer complaints increase or decrease in response to particular events? Use your CSI data to make better decisions about staffing, structure, or strategy.

“The information that we have in Tessitura about our guests helps us if we ever need to follow up with them. We have gotten feedback from that: people writing us back and saying, ‘You usually don't see customer service like that these days.’”


Jennifer Miller, Guest Services Manager
Perot Museum of Nature & Science

“Our customers are seeing much better customer service. We have more time to spend with the customers, not just processing tickets, but having conversations with them. We're better able to track orders, we're better able to track CSIs and respond to those in a timely manner.”

On-Site Customer Service

    Always be prepared with a front-of-house log that includes notifications about customer needs.

    Resolve seating issues on the spot. If a patron needs wheelchair seating that you hadn’t anticipated, instantly see where you have room to accommodate them. If a person with balcony tickets is afraid of heights, an usher can immediately find available seats on a lower level.

  • checkmark-icon

    Set up alerts so that staff can know when VIPs enter your facility and greet them accordingly.

  • checkmark-icon

    Enable location-based services and alerts in your Tessitura-powered mobile app.

  • checkmark-icon

    Empower your ushers or greeters to deliver personalized messages to customers when they arrive at the venue. Thank them for their gift or subscription, let them know to meet their party at the bar, or notify them that their umbrella is at the lost and found.

“N-Scan has allowed our front of house staff to change seats immediately if we have unexpected wheelchairs (our balcony is not wheelchair-accessible). We’ve had reports of kids scared of heights, people that come with vertigo, and they get up there and they’re just terrified. Our house management team can solve that problem within about two minutes versus the seven, eight, nine, ten, fifteen minutes that it would take to get the patron downstairs, get the box office to fix the tickets and get them back upstairs.”

“It's a pretty fantastic thing to have Tessitura as one database where all the information is stored. For me being in customer service, it's about being able to have that history on each guest and make a personal connection.”
