Hands On with Propared Production and Event Management Software

TEC Talk

Join Propared creator, Ryan Kirk, as he demonstrates the Production and Event Management software Propared. Ryan will show how Propared can be used at an organizational level to manage productions, projects, and venues to speed up workflow, improve communication, reduce logistics mistakes, and improve work-life balance.

Ryan will conduct a brief demonstration of Propared and show how to assemble a project timeline, coordinate spaces, schedule people, calculate show costs and labour budgets, and track inventory. He will then show how to communicate a range of instantly updated information via weblinks including calendars & schedules, contact lists, rehearsal & performance reports, inventory lists, client budgets, and other customizable documents. A fully unlocked training license will be given to all attendees to use for 30 days. This session is recommended for anyone involved in production management, scheduling, budgeting, resource management, and staffing who are interested in improving their workflow. Prior knowledge in using Propared is not required.

After attending this presentation, attendees will understand how Propared can be applied at an organizational level in a variety of live entertainment, event, and production applications.
