Moving towards an online-based remote event management environment
Constantly looking to improve and innovate how events are delivered, one of our clients appointed Paramount to develop and launch an online version of the Event Operations Manual for a major international sporting event, set to take place in Cape Town during 2021/22.
While our team was developing the web-based tool, the COVID-19 global pandemic was slowly gaining momentum in South Africa, and the country was sent into a nation-wide Lockdown. This meant that the project we had embarked on was now even more relevant in the current environment, and the team using and collaborating with the tool would be doing so from a remote environment.
As a registered Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider, Paramount was able to quickly build and adapt a web-based solution using SharePoint and Planner as the main delivery applications, meaning that the client did not incur any additional IT-related costs in order for the tool to be integrated into their existing Microsoft 365 environment.
Our client's Event Management Team was now able to collaborate, manage, track and assign responsibilities and tasks to individual team members, all in real-time, and all from the comfort and ease of their computers or mobile devices.
