Excel is a very useful and effective organizational tool for most businesses in a variety of different capacities. However, what excel is not the best for is scheduling and managing a mobile and on-demand event crew. Spreadsheets are just not made for dynamic crew management, which requires flexibility and agility in order to address the many moving parts as well as complex labor processes surrounding your events.
So, what should you do to improve efficiency and streamline your scheduling and crew management processes? Well, first of all, it’s time to break up with those Excel spreadsheets – for good. Instead, you can now turn to LASSO’s event workforce management software to accomplish your goals. As your business continues to grow and thrive, it is necessary to have the tools at your disposal to make scheduling, communication, time keeping and payroll easier, so you can focus on delivering high quality events for your clients.
But Those Poor Spreadsheets!
Don’t feel bad for those poor spreadsheets as you ditch them in favor of better solutions for event crew management. Excel will always have a place in your life – it will just no longer be the driving force behind your crew scheduling and management efforts.
In event production, there are countless moving parts and details are frequently changing. When this happens, it can be cumbersome and time consuming to have to update multiple spreadsheets or other inefficient systems – let alone communicate these changes to a fragmented, on-demand crew. Lack of automation in the overall crew management process opens the door to human error, miscommunication and potential inaccuracies that can cost your company both time and money.
Due to the challenges that spreadsheets present, it is difficult to fully integrate your labor processes, including scheduling, communication, time tracking and payroll across an entire event and team. That is where LASSO can help.
