How 7 Point OPS Can Help You Manage Operations Effectively During COVID
Even in the best of times, managing all the details for meetings and events efficiently and effectively can be challenging. With scheduling departments now facing new processes and procedures related to COVID-19, their job has become even more demanding.
And while the pandemic will eventually subside, many of the new requirements for using room setups that enable social distancing, sanitizing of rooms and resources, etc. will probably remain for the foreseeable future.
7 Point OPS was developed before any of us owned a face mask or had attended a Zoom happy hour, but its feature set is perfectly suited to help you adapt to the new normal and manage event details with a team that’s working remotely yet more connected than ever.
Tightly Integrated Event Operations Software That Makes Your Room Scheduling Software Better
7 Point OPS is cloud-based event operations software that integrates quickly, easily and fully with all of the leading room scheduling software systems. At a time when we’re all looking to keep our in-person interactions to a minimum, the system’s hassle-free implementation means your IT department can get you up and running in OPS with few, if any, face-to-face meetings.
In a matter of minutes, the integration between OPS and your event management software is complete, your meeting and event data is accessible and you can start benefiting from features like:
● Streamlined management of in-person, virtual and hybrid events
● Easy access to setup details for any event
● Ability to flag setup changes or issues for review
● Completion tracking so managers and setup crews know they can move on to other tasks
3 Ways That 7 Point Ops Helps Schedulers Address COVID-19 Protocols
How are the more than 100 universities that use OPS leveraging its functionality to adhere to COVID-19 protocols? In three key ways:
Reducing the need for in-person setup crew meetings. Because all the information each setup team member needs is available in real time through OPS, there is no need for your crew to gather in-person and review task lists.
Eliminating paper reports. All of us know printed reports are outdated as soon as a single online change is made. With OPS, paper reports are a thing of the past.
Identifying rooms in need of cleaning. The sanitizing of rooms is a key component in getting the pandemic under control. Teams can note in OPS that a space is in need of cleaning and also indicate when the task is completed.
In general, the “anytime, anywhere” access to event details that OPS provides empowers a dispersed workforce to be highly independent and very productive.
