4 Ways BookedOut Makes Event Management Easy

Since its’ acquisition by Shiftgig in 2016, BookedOut has been one of the leading cloud-based platforms in the experiential marketing and event industries. It was developed specifically with marketers and talent managers in mind to help streamline day-to-day activities. In this post we’ll explore features of the BookedOut platform that help make event staffing simple.

1. Event Management
BookedOut’s core functionality was developed around three key pillars in event and staff management to help you build, organize, and manage across a large set of clients, projects, and regions.

  • Campaigns: Your projects, organized at the global level by your client parameters.
  • Programs: Usually region-based and set to account for key implementation differences.
  • Events: Day-to-day activations, geo-organized for simplicity.

Within these pillars, you can search for curated talent pools, browse staff profiles, and create and manage events.

2. Staff mobile app
With our staff mobile app, your talent will be synced with our platform. They’ll receive real-time updates and have everything they need to complete their field tasks successfully. The staff mobile app for BookedOut shows the following:

  • Event description and tasks
  • Meeting and contact information
  • Requested attire
  • PDF and video training documents
  • Task tracker
  • Payment information
  • Geo-location clock-in and clock-out

3. Activation Dashboard
Details for all your events can be found in the activation dashboard. Search and view the status of events by campaign, program, date range, region, or producer. The activation dashboard also includes small, yet impactful features such as the current weather and talent confirmation.

4. Rich Data & OKR Tracking
BookedOut makes aggregation and visualization of your data a hassle-free task. We create your custom reports so you can run them in real-time when you need them. Report metrics can include:

  • Campaign and individual performance
