Customer Feature: Ottawa Art Gallery
If the last year and a half taught us anything, it’s that technology has and will play a vital role in how we do business. For many organizations, having the right technology and support was an important consideration long before the effects of the pandemic made it a necessity. At Fully Managed we are proud to be the technology partner for many innovative companies. One such group, the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) knows it needs to be a technology company first to carry out its mission to educate the community about the world of art. OAG is truly inspirational in how it attempts to deliver art experiences to the masses. This not-for-profit has always considered how they can better embrace technology to further their objectives—providing free access to their programs is an important goal. One of the simplest ways they are doing this is by providing 100% free WIFI throughout the entire building. By doing this they encourage their patrons, students, seniors, kids and others, to take their time, immerse themselves in art experiences for as little or as much time as they want.
Prior to the pandemic, OAG was already considering new and exciting ways to incorporate technology into their other activities, but in 2020 when it came time for their Annual Silent Auction and Gala (a huge source of their funding), the Gallery created a completely virtual bidding event, Give to Get Art, as well as many intimate, at-home experiences for their community. Check out their 2021 repeat performance here: https://oaggao.ca/virtualartauction2021.
As the IT provider for Ottawa Art Gallery, Fully Managed is proud to support their mission to foster connections between the art community and their members. We are the power behind their online bidding application and the free WIFI throughout their space and are delighted to help them plan and strategize their technology roadmap for the future. We love you OAG and cannot wait until we can wander your beautiful exhibitions again.
