One Plan streamlines event procurement and the supply of event services and products. Quantities of temporary infrastructure, event overlay and services are automatically collated within One Plan creating an ‘event shopping list’ which can be instantly sent to approved suppliers to provide quotes. This reduces the time taken and cost in finding quality suppliers in your area. Multiple quotes can be received to ensure best value is achieved and meet organisational procurement polices.
This tool enables users to accurately drop and drag event infrastructure and supplier products onto the global mapping system anywhere in the world. Crowd capacity is instantly calculated according to the desired crowd density. Popular temporary event infrastructure can be dragged and dropped from the toolbar into any location to assist event professionals to design an event site. All temporary infrastructure such as pedestrian barriers, fencing and toilets are scaled to industry standards so highly accurate site plans can be developed and ensure the correct quantity are procured.
The queue calculator provides an instant estimate of queue length and wait time for areas such as security screening, ticket checks and box office based on basic data provided by the user. This helps to ensure that services and infrastructure are appropriately scoped and clearly identifies times of peak demand.
The evacuation assessor tool provides an estimate of time to evacuate pedestrians from a site based on crowd number and exit gate width. The accessible visual tool can be shared with stakeholders such as the emergency services to help support evacuation planning.
Dot plans of human resources can be plotted onto the system. Comments can be left on the map by other users such as clients and event suppliers, which improves integrated planning and collaborative working.
Bill of quantities
From the block planning and infrastructure mapping, a ‘bill of quantities’ (BOQ) is created. Contingency can be added to each of the items on the bill of quantities.
The BOQ can then be submitted to approved suppliers via the portal to provide quotes. This significantly reduces the time and cost to source suppliers and procure items.
