How AttendEasy Saves You Time & MoneyPosted on: February 1, 2017
It can be pretty easy sometimes to confuse being good stewards of money with not spending any money at all. We get it. At one point, most of us at Ministry Sync worked at non-profits and that guides us in our work as we create products that ensure efficiency AND value.
As a non-profit organization, a primary duty is to be smart with how funds are used. To do this, you sometimes choose to over-work yourselves to the extreme in order to save a little; which once you add up the total man hours added to your staff in these cases, it actually ends up costing you more in the long-run.
A very simple area to save money is within event management.
These are conservative estimates from years of experience in acting as each of these roles at one time or another 🙂
Take a look: 93 HOURS of staff time devoted to these key event tasks. That equals more than two full weeks of work devoted to managing this one event alone, not including the planning, event mailings, and post event analysis. That is time that could be much more effectively put to use within your organization and the life-changing work done.
Now look at the money: More than $1,200 per event is being put toward a mix-match of information within your organization and the staff’s computer expertise, and this doesn’t include printing and postage costs. The more programs you use, the higher the probability for error. Excel for attendee registration; Quickbooks for registration receipts; WordPress for website updates; Word for name tags (don’t get me started on mail merges); etc… This is money that can be reallocated to other departments -or- other parts of this event, such as the speaker.
For a fraction of this cost, you have access to a one-stop shop of event management tools. AttendEasy literally was designed to take much of the event work off your plate. It acts as an additional staff member so you can focus less time on event details and more time on development. A well-run, professional event often produces more income and more interest. “If you build it, they will come.” This saying is true for more than baseball 🙂
