How long does it take to track down potential crew members in order to confirm if they are available (or not) to work your event? Between making multiple phone calls, sending emails and texts, and then having to manage those responses, a significant portion of your time involves trying to figure out who is available to work your events.
Rather than having to rely on these manual processes to determine availability and schedule crew, Event Service companies need to find a way to reduce the time and effort spent, and come up with a more efficient solution. LASSO provides event companies with crew scheduling software that makes it easier to track down and manage crew availability. Crew scheduling software makes a world of difference for Event companies by helping to speed up the process, and gives crew schedulers the ability to broaden their reach so that they can be confident that they found the right crew members, for the right positions, at the right total cost. Additionally, crew scheduling software with a robust mobile application enhances the overall communication between schedulers and crew.
The Crew Availability and Communication Gap
After making one phone call after another in an effort to find a qualified crew member to fill one position, your coordinators need to repeat the process over and over until the entire crew is intact. When event details change, as they often do, your team needs to then communicate those changes to the crew and ensure that they are received, which puts a serious strain on your time and resources. Many Event Service companies require crew members’ to report their availability ahead of time in order to help alleviate this crew availability and communication gap. However, this can be time consuming for the crew and, as we found in our extensive interviews, crew members appreciate learning about opportunities available to them.
Many Event Service companies have accepted this as a cost of doing business when dealing with a contingent workforce. However, that does not have to be the case. Instead of the laborious manual processes performed to obtain crew availability, it is time to get ahead of the game. LASSO helps you cut down on time and money spent with this issue, so you can focus on other important aspects of your event.
