New technology is introduced every so often that greatly changes the way you do business as well as how you perform certain tasks or functions. Whether it is by improving the quality of production elements or streamlining workflow, successful event production companies are able to continuously adapt to these changes and implement winning technology platforms in order to grow. This means enhancing your events workforce management processes while leaving those processes that you don’t need anymore in the past.
At LASSO, we provide enhanced technology solutions, such as our crew scheduling software, which were built by and for leaders in the Event Services industry in order to address some your daily hassles. Here are three crew management processes of the past that you can now streamline and automate in order to help you deliver the best events, more efficiently and with increased profitability.
Manually Scheduling Your Crew
No longer do you need to manually schedule crew for events. This includes having to figure out crew availability and determine crew quality and costs, as well as all of the effort it takes to reach potential crew members, through phone calls, emails and text messages, in order to fill each of your open crew positions.
LASSO allows you to leave those manual crew scheduling processes behind and enables you to automate both crew scheduling and on-boarding. With our mobile app, you are also able to communicate with your crew anywhere, anytime; ensuring they always have the latest event details at their fingertips.
Relying on Paper Time Sheets
Many Event Service companies still rely on paper time sheets or the honor system when it comes to managing and tracking the time and attendance of their crew. These manual methods of time keeping are highly cumbersome and costly and can result in slower invoicing of your clients and slower payment to your crew.
By getting rid of paper time sheets and turning to automated time tracking systems, you get the most accurate measurement for the actual hours your crew worked. In addition, by enabling a solution like ours, you are also able to account for all of the Event-industry specific requirements such as minimums, meal breaks and more.
Manually Keying Hours into Payroll Systems
Collecting a paper timesheet is one thing, but then having to key in all of that data by hand is something else entirely. This process is tedious and prone to inaccuracies, which can lead to someone being paid too much or too little for their work. Manually keying hours can also cause delays in paying crew and billing clients.
LASSO’s crew scheduling software streamlines these processes and allows you to get out from under the weight of paperwork, individual emails, and manual data entry. Learn more about how to leave these tasks in the past where they belong. Contact LASSO today for a demo.
