Streamlining scheduling & improving accountability in
on-campus event management.
Challenge: Prior to LASSO, the University of Kentucky’s Sports Video department used another scheduling solution along with excel spreadsheets, Google docs, and manual processes such as calling and emailing to book students and freelancers for their shows. The usability of their previous solutions was lacking, making it very difficult to duplicate events, update schedule details in bulk, and even determine availability for shows. They were looking for a solution to streamline their processes and save their team time.
Solution: The University of Kentucky turned to LASSO to help save their team time, streamline processes, and improve overall accountability.
Results: The University of Kentucky implemented LASSO’s workforce scheduling software enabling them to quickly and easily duplicate events and update schedule details in bulk, saving the team a tremendous amount of time. They were also able to allow their students & freelancers to confirm shifts, improving overall accountability and reducing no-shows. By streamlining the management of both student schedules & freelancer availability, the University of Kentucky ensures that the entire team is in sync and can easily communicate important event details at all times.
“Both our students and freelancers really like LASSO. As soon as I start sending out crew shifts and rosters, I’ll start getting confirmations back almost immediately. The feedback we have gotten from everyone has been great.”
“Prior to LASSO, we were using another software platform, but
the usability just wasn’t there. It was almost easier to just use excel spreadsheets, make phone calls, and share Google docs, which is what we ended up doing.”
“When it comes to college athletics, conferences like to keep the same schedule and the ability to duplicate events is critical. Before LASSO, we had to create a new event schedule every time which was just so time consuming. That played a huge factor into us looking for a new solution. We needed to easily duplicate events and adjust schedule times in bulk so that we could focus on other, more important tasks.”Clifton Matekovich, Operations Producer
“I love that at a glance, we can see who is confirmed and who is not, so we know exactly who needs to be followed up with, and when. Everything is consolidated and in one place.”
