What is it? A mobile and web app for managing event staff on site.

Tell me more… Rather than managing staff via email, spreadsheets and mobile phones, event managers can build an app in a few minutes to help them organise and communicate with staff and volunteers on site at an event.

Features? Event managers can use the app to:

  • Keep in contact with staff through individual or broadcast messages in real-time
  • Keep track of staff and see who has turned up for their shift and who hasn’t, allowing them to solve understaffing problems
  • See everything in one place, or filter information by venue, location, role or shift.

There are also additional tools online that allow event managers to send individual schedules, access data collected during the event, import from excel to add existing staff and volunteers, send messages to groups of people via email or SMS.

Cost? There are two pricing models: a one-off fee for one event, or a monthly subscription package of $40 a month (£26).
