Using Liveforce Since
Beginning of 2019
Liveforce has empowered Profiles to overcome manual inefficiencies, enhancing their event staffing operations and delivering an improved experience for both clients and staff.
Profiles enhance Event Staffing efficiency with Liveforce
When Fran Dancona, Training and Operations Manager at Profiles since 2015, joined the company, the events division faced archaic challenges. Bookings and temp records were managed manually with pencil and paper, leading to inefficiencies. Cancelling or adjusting bookings was cumbersome;
“When I joined Profiles in 2015, we were using paper and pencil to record our bookings and temps…When someone would cancel, we would rub them out!”
The existing system, although a database, lacked user-friendly interaction for staff and had limited access.
Why liveforce stood out
Fran explored various solutions but found many to be bulky and challenging for candidates. Liveforce stood out due to its user-friendly interface, especially its job board and scheduling capabilities. The ability to instantly post bookings to staff and gain real-time visibility on scheduled personnel differentiated Liveforce. This feature contributed to improved management, consistency, and client satisfaction.
“The different boards for scheduling were revolutionary. It’s clear from a management and consistency perspective who is booked in for the whole week, which is something I haven’t seen in any other staffing solution platforms.”
