"My favorite thing about LASSO is how it keeps a database of all of our crew members in one place—telling you what positions they hold and the last time they worked with us. This makes it easy to crew for future events and have everything you need in one place."

Schedule crew in minutes, not days

The most stressful part of event planning is crew scheduling. You have to find the right people for the job, make sure they’re available, and then hope that everything works out on the day of the event. With LASSO, you can easily plan your entire event roster with just a few clicks.

"We are able to send a request to our technicians and receive a yes or a no within minutes which has helped us save time on emailing. The back and forth communication to see if someone is available has gone away."

Keep crew informed in real time

Trying to stay in touch with your crew can be difficult and frustrating. Especially when you’re managing a crew the size of a football team.  Quickly send important messages, notifications, and announcements—no matter what time it is or which device they happen to be using.

Easy e-sign and storage

Onboarding new hires can be a serious pain. You’ve got to track down paperwork, get it filled out, and make sure that you’re storing everything in a safe place. Then there’s the risk that something might fall through the cracks. We hate cracks, so we give your new staff the ability to fill out new hire docs quickly, easily, and digitally.

Track time in the field faster

No more manual timesheets and cost surprises. Your crew can punch in/out or your crew supervisor can do so on their behalf, ensuring they are paid the hourly or daily rate you agreed on. Did we mention you can accommodate whatever complex pay rules you need to follow?
