Congrats to Donovan’s Client – Venue Intelligence.
No one wants to think about what would happen in a worse case scenario, but without searching through your company binders, would you know what to do if an emergency occurred? Instead of shifting through safety binders, a few clicks can present you with an immediate action plan thanks to Playbook.
Just two and a half years ago in April of 2014, Jim Martin started Venue Intelligence in Zionsville, and one year later Playbook was launched. This new app is designed to help event planners ensure safety when an emergency arises.
A lot of information goes into making an event safe, and pieces of information can get lost in the paperwork. Therefore, Playbook is designed to easily access safety plans with just a few clicks. Current files, contact lists, schedules and maps all can be uploaded to the system making it easier, and more time efficient to find what you are searching for.
What makes Playbook unique is that it not only provides quick access to safety and event information, but it’s a communication platform, as well. For example, with features like the Lost Child Coordinator, a picture of a lost child can be distributed to hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement in just minutes. That’s a game changer for parades, festivals and various events where lost children are a prevalent issue.
The app is still new to the market, but it has already been used at large events such as the 2015 Big Ten Football Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Indianapolis 500, the 2016 NCAA Women’s Final Four and the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.
Thanks to Martin’s innovative thinking, event planners can be better prepared and people can feel safer.
