Talent and Event Management

Revolutionary, Custom Tools for Every Aspect of the Entertainment Business

At Skeleton Key, we design and build efficient and time-saving applications for venues, event management, bookers, agencies and promoters.Custom Apps for Entertainment Talent and Event Management

Skeleton Key understands that the entertainment business is both highly organized and completely unpredictable. It is driven by physical locations and tangible deliverables and yet is completely borderless, with talent and crew often on the road or on the other side of the planet. You and your clients must be prepared to deal with the unexpected, so it’s vital that your systems never fail you. Our team knows how to analyze and improve your existing processes without breaking anything. We update what isn’t working while paying special attention not to fix what isn’t broken so the show, as they say, can go on.

Entertainment Industry Workflows


What goes on behind the scenes for any entertainment professional varies wildly from day to day and company to company. What a promoter for a medium sized venue in Nashville deals with is vastly different from a staffing agency that books lighting and sound professionals for huge events in Los Angeles. There are quite a few similarities, though: Disparate payroll systems, cloud folders for sharing plans and documents, and emailed expense reports are all common examples. One-to-one communication and individualized approaches eventually impede and encumber organizational evolution…unless you have the right tools.

Our easy-to-use interfaces provide a single point of entry for all of your information, whether that’s scanning a ticket or keeping track of payroll. Our mobile apps, dashboards, and reports keep your team organized, no matter where they are.
