Have you ever felt out of control when organizing an event? This is very common in the events sector, where costs can rise rapidly. However, with Lab Event, you can control your margin more effectively.
How can Lab Event help you control your margins?
Lab Event is an event management tool that lets you track all your expenses and income in real time. You can enter your purchase price at any level, whether at item level or directly in the quotation..
When you create a quote, you can add each item you plan to use for the event. This can include items such as hall hire, catering, decoration, etc. For each item, you can indicate the purchase price and the selling price.
What’s more, Lab Event also lets you track indirect costs such as travel expenses, personnel costs, marketing costs and so on. You can add these indirect costs to your quotation to ensure that you charge enough to cover them. How? Thanks to the “zero price line” feature.
This allows you to record a purchase with a zero sales price and hide the line in customer view. But this line is visible to you and allows you to adjust the margin in real time.
Using Lab Event, you can also create detailed reports on the costs of each event, enabling you to see where you can save money in the future. You also have an overview of margins by major family, enabling you to see where you earn the most (or the least) and adjust your quotation accordingly (by negotiating more effectively with suppliers, for example).
