Plan, source, track.
That’s the basic flow of planning any meeting. And it sounds pretty simple, but how is it even relevant in the midst of a pandemic?
- Every company focuses on the first: planning – with both professionals and occasional planners lining up to do just that. But how do you support them with a company-wide tool to make the process consistent, T&C’s included, KPIs measurable, and budgets approvable?
- Fewer companies focus on the sourcing. And if they do, a planner’s idea of meeting “sourcing” may, in fact, be relying on a platform that makes most of its revenue from venue advertising rather than from giving enterprise customers – you -- maximum savings. Is that good enough?
- Finally, there’s tracking. Until the pandemic, most companies did not worry about attendee tracking at all. But now, tracking is the foundational element to drive the re-start of face-to-face collaboration… the need to connect your online booking platform to the meeting tracking platform, the need to track and trace attendees at drive-only meeting, the need to see where your meetings are lining up if there’s a surge in cases and you need to postpone or cancel (with the click of a button).
You cannot afford to leave your meetings program “as is” to carry you successfully through the new risks. And you can’t afford to have an expensive “big meeting” tool collecting dust on your shelf.
