What people are saying about TRG Data Center

"Data Center has had a great impact on our organization. We primarily use it to facilitate mailing list trades with other organizations, but I use it even when mailing to our own list segments because I know the data is clean and run through NCOA. It is also handy as an audience research tool because of the ability to examine crossover among audience segments within our organization as well as with other organizations, among other things."

Dan Comly, Marketing Director at FringeArts 


"TRG Data Center is an integral part of our targeted marketing strategy, allowing us to mail the right patron with the right offer. The demographics tools provide an easy method to understand our patrons and how they vary by segment. On top of all that, the tool itself is easy to use and support is always timely."

Samantha Franck, Director of Marketing at Ballet Arizona 


“It’s hard to imagine a tool that is as easy to use and overflowing with insights. TRG’s Data Center allows my team to facilitate list trades, dig deeper into our own data, and harness a better sense of the NYC arts community. Plus, being part of our local consortium draws us closer to our colleagues.”

Kyle Sircus, Director of Marketing at Playwrights Horizons


Does Data Center replace my ticketing system/donor database?

No. Data Center is designed to complement your system(s), so that everyone in the community can work with a standardized dataset. Though you could choose to build all of your lists in Data Center (and many organizations do,) you’ll want to retain the systems through which you sell tickets and process donations.

How does my data get into Data Center?

We’ve made it simple to load data from almost any arts software system, using a field-mapping process that allows you to easily map your database fields to TRG’s standard fields. After your initial load, Data Center remembers your mapping so that keeping your account updated is simple for subsequent loads.

Do I need to be in a community network to use TRG Data Center?

No. Many organizations use the Data Center to access the demographic data that is not available in their own ticketing and fundraising systems. Others find value in combining data from multiple systems in one place, giving them a holistic view of their patrons. List-trading is an added value for those organizations who have other Data Center users in their area, but it is not necessary.
