Streamlining Event Scheduling by Integrating Monday.com and Google Calendar
How SowLabs increased event coordination proficiency and elevated client communication
PhotoMules is one of the nation’s leading youth sports event photography companies. With nearly 150 events across the U.S. annually, planning and coordinating team members and other resources is critical to their success. Through their use of multiple platforms to coordinate scheduling, the PhotoMules managers found themselves struggling to navigate confirmed events and leads with precision. With some streamlining from N&S, their scheduling process and company calendars were able to provide more clarity and accuracy. As a result, PhotoMules has more consistency across planning platforms and is positioned to continue exceptional client communication.
