We offer two staffing plans - Dedicated Staff and Shared Staff. We offer fixed pricing for maintenance and custom development. We hoard the corporate credit card benefits for pass-through expenses. And we offer clients the option of just licensing the platform. That's it!
We strongly recommend Dedicated Staff for bureaus of 1000+ events per year. The client ONLY pays for the staff he uses, plus maintenance/development fees and out-of-pocket costs. There are NO program fees, cancellation fees, or minimum gaurantees. The staff is dedicated and trained for that client. Management and overhead are included in the pricing.
The average program coordinator can manage 20-40 events per month depending on the level of support needed per event. However, our staff is not average. We recruit top-notch personnel, train them to leverage our highly automated platform to its maximum benefit, and reward our personnel with compensation above industry norms. Our staff can manage 30-60 events per month.
For a typical bureau of 3,000 events, we recommend a staffing of 6 dedicated coordinators. That translates to an average administrative cost of $330 per event, versus an industry average of $600.
We know there's no such thing as "standard" but it's a good place to start. For bureaus of fewer than 1,000 events per year, we recommend shared staffing. In a shared staffing model, coordinators manage multiple bureaus but the platform is still customized for its brand. For shared staff, we offer a per event pricing model.
We customize the platform for each client. To launch a new platform, we require the following:
