A ground breaking IOS App to shake up the event management sector.
Citrus Event Staffing provide high quality event staff for music festivals, sporting events and bars throughout the UK. They currently have over 50,000+ staff members with one event alone requiring thousands of staff.
Citrus Event Staffing required a digital communications solution that would need to solve two separate issues. Firstly they wanted to give their staff the ability to be notified of all up and coming jobs from Citrus HQ, read the relevant fact sheets and eventually register their interest without the need to send thousands of expensive text messages. Secondly they required a way to allow their thousands of staff to quickly and efficiently clock in and out of work shifts whilst on location at the numerous festivals and events around the UK which often had little or no internet connection.
Union Room identified that an APP could be built that would meet the all of the above criteria. We decided to build the APP on the iOS platform initially and then on other Android devices at a later date.
Staff who have the APP are able to browse, and with a swiping gesture register their interest in working jobs. Citrus HQ, are notified automatically, and if the staff member is appropriate for the job they move them from the interested in status, to place reserved. At that point, the staff member is notified via a push notification instantly. They are then able to read the job fact sheet, and confirm that they will work the job. The APP also has a digital QR Code, uniquely encoded to them, and can be used to clock in and out of any job they are confirmed to work.
Secondly by installing the APP on multiple Citrus owned iPhones (as many as 40-50) and then taking them to each event, senior managers can use the digital QR code for each member of staff, that when scanned automatically recognises them, clocking them in or out of the job. The APP also has real-time statistics, that synchronises automatically with the Citrus server. Allowing Citrus HQ full real-time visibility of the activity on the application.
