Here at WeTrack we have developed a template for planning out your venue and event checks. These checks are essential for your site's safety, security and readiness and should be planned comprehensively.
This template gives you a guide of the type of information you should be planning out when developing a programme of checks for your venue or event operations. However, the actual carrying out of your venue checks should not be done using Excel; it is unwieldy, cumbersome and doesn't allow you to interact with the checks and the rest of your team, nor put in vital supporting information such as photos.
Follow the steps in the downloadable template to build that programme of checks - and get in touch with WeTrack if you would like to learn more about how our venue checks software enables you to plan, manage, complete and respond to your checks in an easy-to-use, automated, mobile-friendly platform.
If you would like to think further about improving your event control or venue management, we have produced a series of blog posts, detailed here. We are also producing a white paper, under the working title of The Complete Guide to Event Control.
