Producing top events for your clients requires not only a well-defined plan, but also strict attention to detail. As the competition in this industry continues to grow fiercer, it is on you and your team to deliver the best services as well as experiences to your clients. While this certainly revolves around all of the quality event production services you deliver time and time again, this also includes all of the internal functions required to make an event a success such as event crew scheduling and communication, overall crew management, time keeping and payroll.
So, what are two mistakes that Event companies sometimes make which can be avoided throughout the entire event production process? Find out below:
Using Technology for Technology’s Sake, Especially for Crew Management
For years, using technology for technology’s sake has been a necessary evil for many Event Service companies due to the fact that there have never really been any solutions on the market geared specifically for the needs of this industry. The use of generic, broad-scope technology platforms or the use of a myriad of excel spreadsheets have done what little they could to help these companies with their crew management and labor processes up until this point. However, this no longer needs to be the case. It is much smarter to go for a platform that speaks your language.
Event companies can now avoid using technology for technology’s sake, especially when it comes to crew management. LASSO, which was built by and for Event Service companies helps you tackle the unique challenges you face everyday, including crew scheduling, communication, time keeping, and payroll.
Not Understanding the Impact of Technology on Profit
Many Event Service companies take the stance that any investment in technology will simply cost them money. Many may not recognize technology can actually make you more profitable.
For example, one of the main benefits of using crew management software is in creating more efficient, streamlined and automated processes. However, it also helps save your company money and makes it more profitable.
How does this happen? Process automation, access to robust crew data and analytics give you the ability to make more strategic decisions for your company. This enables you to accurately forecast true labor costs and make more informed decisions before costs are even incurred.
The LASSO solution also helps you remain compliant with labor laws and limit your liability and exposure to the complexities surrounding the Affordable Care Act and employee misclassification.
