A medium-sized food manufacturing company sends teams to 4-5 industry tradeshows each year across the United States with anywhere from 4 to 8 staff members attending each show. In the weeks prior to each show the team pre-books meetings with their customers which often involve more than one staff member, for example, a sales rep and a technical rep.
In the past the company created a shared “Tradeshow” calendar in MS Outlook to schedule these meetings, but there were always issues with time zones either while scheduling or once they arrive on site.
“I discovered Teamup about a year ago. It was clunky at first, but was still our best solution. ” Says Tony, the marketing manager. “With all the recent updates to Teamup such as the iOS app and the ability to schedule more than one staff calendar in the same meeting it’s now quick and easy. Our staff carries their phones around the show floor and now they always have the most recent schedule at their fingertips.”
