Coordinate the Major Sporting Events
Populous needed a way to coordinate hundreds of people and, thousands of details, to masterfully produce the world's largest sporting events.
272 Vendors, 2,099 Tasks, 160 Deliveries Coordinated
The logistics involved in large scale events like the Final Four are ever changing. Completing over 2,000 tasks on game day and coordinating over 160 deliveries required the Populous team to find a tool to simplify their work and reduce the hours spent chasing critical details.
“We relied on over 200 vendors. Making sure others did their job was the only way we could succeed.”Hailee DampEvent Coordinator
Successful event coordination involves multiple touch points and dynamic workflows. Populous needed a collaborative solution for a team on the move and anytime anywhere access for phones and tablets.
Logistics management was a combination of email, Excel worksheets, phone calls and Word documents. A single platform would simplify operations, save time, and reduce deadline risks.
Prioritize Maintenance Issues
With 272 vendors and contractors, it was necessary to find a tool that would be easy for all vendors to understand and to use without training.
