LASSO Travel, an innovative travel booking and management solution within LASSO’s end-to-end workforce management platform, enables customers to manage all of the moving parts associated with traveling an event crew.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., October 2, 2018 – LASSO, a leading provider of workforce management technology solutions, will officially launch their new travel management product, LASSO Travel, at LDI 2018. LASSO will be located at booth #517 at Live Design International’s annual conference and will be showcasing this new solution to show attendees. LASSO Travel operates within LASSO’s integrated workforce management platform that is designed to help event companies organize, schedule, and communicate with their contingent, mobile workforce.
“According to our recent survey, over 85% of event production companies produce events that require their crew to travel,” said Angela Alea, president of LASSO. “Those same companies told us their top challenges for traveling crew were managing changes to travel schedules and determining costs. In this industry, travel arrangements are often fragmented and made last minute, causing many to lose out on opportunities to keep costs down. Also, few companies have access to these travel costs when budgeting for an event, which can lead, in some cases, to decreased profitability or even an upside-down event. With LASSO Travel, we aim to solve for this by helping our customers simplify and integrate their travel booking and management processes into their overall labor workflow.”
LASSO Travel allows customers to understand their total travel and associated costs, even prior to authorizing the travel, in order to make the best crewing decisions possible for each event. It also enables the discovery, booking, and management of travel itineraries as they constantly evolve. Customers are easily able to communicate all travel itineraries with their crew, so they remain informed and have the latest details before hitting the road.
“So many of our customers tell us how difficult it is to not only communicate travel arrangements with those in the field, but also update them when details change, as they often do up until the moment of each event,” continued Alea. “LASSO Travel gives customers more control over all travel costs as well as all crew communication and booking. And, the best part is that it’s all within the same system they use for on-boarding, scheduling, time tracking and more. This latest solution is just one more way that we can help our customers manage their entire labor workflow, from start to finish, and simplify typically labor intensive, disjointed, and costly processes.”
