Whatever your industry and whoever your client base, the last few weeks will have been challenging time for your business. Many industries have needed to readjust the way they operate, from home working or the impact of furloughing staff and operating with a reduced work force load to social distancing and the government ban on travel. You will no doubt have been impacted in some way.
The question of how to keep engagement with your clients and manage the day to day running of your business continues to be a key concern for most businesses. Platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom have been instrumental in providing a quick and easy solution to enable the majority of businesses to continue working with clients, workforce, suppliers etc as efficiently as possible. But how can you ensure the content of your virtual interaction is reaching the right audience?
Over the past few weeks, we have been working closely with a number of existing clients, charities and organisations to assist them in moving from face to face training and event management to a virtual solution using the EventStop system. This system allows you to plan and organise events, set up free or paid events, issue tickets, take payment and assist with the administration of a virtual event.
