process management throughout all their operations.
primary focus of our search for a CMMS solution was to find a system that was user-friendly
and allowed staff to submit work orders in an intuitive manner” stated Mike
Smithy of John F. Kennedy Center. “In addition, the system had to provide the
data we could use to make timely and informed decisions. We believe we have this tool with WebTMA.”

The Kennedy Center is the nation’s busiest performing arts center, hosting approximately 3,000 events each year for audiences numbering more than 2 million. Since 1971, they have been bringing the world to Washington, D.C. with magnificent performances of music, dance, theater, and more.
The Kennedy Center, located on the banks of the Potomac River near the Lincoln Memorial, opened to the public in September 1971. But its roots date back to 1958, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed bipartisan legislation creating a National Cultural Center. To honor Eisenhower’s vision for such a facility, one of the Kennedy Center’s theaters is named for him.
The National Cultural Center Act included four basic components: it authorized the Center’s construction, spelled out an artistic mandate to present a wide variety of both classical and contemporary performances, specified an educational mission for the Center, and stated that the Center was to be an independent facility, self-sustaining, and privately funded. As a result of this last stipulation, a mammoth fundraising campaign began immediately following the Act’s passage into law.
President John F. Kennedy was a lifelong supporter and advocate of the arts, and frequently steered the public discourse toward what he called “our contribution to the human spirit.” Kennedy took the lead in raising funds for the new National Cultural Center, holding special White House luncheons and receptions, appointing his wife Jacqueline and Mrs. Eisenhower as honorary co-chairwomen, and in other ways placing the prestige of his office firmly behind the endeavor.
