(Ontario, Canada) The parent company of some of the most notable thoroughbred events in the world, The Stronach Group, has partnered with Lennd to streamline their event operations and improve internal communication for the Preakness Stakes and the Pegasus World Cup.
When asked what the biggest problems they are looking to solve by leveraging Lennd, VP of Events, Nick Hines said:
“Being a mixture of sports and festivals, our events have very complex credentialing needs. There are various departments, access levels, and external needs that create a challenging credential process. Our External Vendor and Internal Department Procurement Management process can also be difficult to manage. Having a centralized system to manage vendor/department asset requests and orders and ultimately being able to bill vendors back for their needs, will have a significant impact.
Lennd will simplify our credentialing process with our complex interdepartmental needs, simplify our production and sponsorship advancing, and give us the reporting tools we need to track assets and costs efficiently with the ability to customize reporting as needed."
When asked why they chose Lennd as their partner, Hines said:
"We chose Lennd based on our belief that it provides an intuitive interface, customizability, reporting, and credential system. Direct access to a dedicated, knowledgeable customer service person also played an integral role in our decision. Lennd's reputation for high quality support, was very important to us."
