Are you battling with these challenges?

Student Housing Software

Limited access

Other departments may jump into a meeting space last minute or get priority over available space, meaning you must be flexible and be able to change the bookings quickly if needed.

Space utilisation

Poor space utilisation

With other departments having access to the space for their own use, conference room management isn’t always simple. Rooms can get double-booked and spaces may not be utilised to their full potential.

Student enquiries

Enquiry overload

Abiding by protocol means that sometimes you are restricted in the business you can accept. You may also have to turn down business resulting in missed opportunities that haven’t been captured.

Restricted resources

Resources such as AV and catering services may get overbooked by other departments or event managers, causing logistical problems and customer dissatisfaction.

Communication

Lack of communication

Keeping departments up-to-speed with event information and what is expected of them can be time-consuming. Sometimes important event details may be forgotten or not be passed on.

Pressure to perform well

High-pressure

External departments are now realising the real impact and potential that events and conferencing teams have. Therefore, pressure is greater and more is expected from your team.
