Key Challenge – Moving from paper-based event management to improve efficiency & reporting
Sales and Marketing Manager at Gray’s Inn, Catherine Ortmayer explains, “In the past we were using a colour-coded paper-based system combined with applications such as Word, Outlook and Excel. Although this worked, it was far from super-efficient and involved a high duplication of effort and time-consuming activities such as inputting of data into different systems. We also wanted to create more in-depth management reports that would help us better understand areas such as occupancy and conversion rates, which in turn would contribute to a more strategic plan for marketing in the future.”
