Simple. Flexible. Efficient.
With over 90 staff and 8 sites across the city of Memphis, our organization had a communication problem. Too many emails and different calendars to keep up with to be on the same page. Now we have every one of our staff using Teamup to organize and plan our staff trainings and events along with daily tasks and field trips. Our staff works with 750 inner city youth every day to help mentor and develop them into productive adults and Teamup helps our staff be the productive team they need.
Teamup continues to be a critical part of our operation here at Chicago Yacht Works. We have mechanical technicians, fiberglass repair technicians, sub-contractors and daily boat launch/haul-out tasks. We previously used a combination of whiteboards, outlook/google calendars (yuck!), and spreadsheets to schedule everything. It was a big headache! We now use Teamup to schedule our technicians - a vast improvement over the whiteboard method. The ability to prevent overlapping events in each technician's calendar is a huge advantage.
We need a calendar that could handle multiple rooms. All with different availability. As well as track therapist availability. Then be able to assign therapist to a room. Only one therapist can use one room. We used google calendar but it was very difficult to sync all those calendars. Teamup not only meet our needs when we were smaller but has had the capability and functionality to grow with us. What we like best is even with all the calendar we have, it's still easy to see the schedule and make appointments.
Our major challenge is to reach out to all stakeholders, be effective in our communication and to avoid the annoying statement ''we didn't know about it''. With a school community of over 2.5K people (800 pupils, 120 members of staff, 1500+ parents) communication is crucial! We tried the monthly printed newsletter, the weekly memo, google calendar, fronter calendar. None proved as effective as teamup calendar!
