Virginia-based DJ & event company, A2Z Music Factory, transitioned to Goodshuffle Pro event software to eliminate double booking and streamline their inventory management. The team also built up their professional brand by using Goodshuffle Pro’s all-in-one software combined with the available integrations, including the Website Wishlist.
A2Z Music Factory is a family-owned business with a fantastic work culture. The team members love what they do: putting smiles on clients’ faces. The owners are a husband-and-wife team, John and Carrie Howard, and Brandon Peltz is the Director of Operations. Brandon has been a DJ since he was 13 years old and knows the industry inside and out.
Because of the A2Z Music Factory’s dedication to their clients, event planning, and execution, there wasn’t always time to handle the back of house operations the way they wanted. Double booking was an issue, as well as keeping track of various sub-rentals through partnerships with other vendors.
Upon learning about Goodshuffle Pro, the team at A2Z Music Factory decided to give it a try. They immediately saw a change in their inventory management capabilities, but were amazed at how many other aspects of their business also improved.
Some of their favorite features include:
With these features in their tool belt, the team was ready to take on anything that came their way.
A2Z Music Factory's primary goal was immediately met when they eliminated double booking due to Goodshuffle Pro’s inventory conflict detection feature, which instantly alerts users of any potential issues. Given how unique and expensive some of their gear is, this meant they saved thousands of dollars and ensured they never had to let down a customer (a huge priority to this customer-centric team!)
A2Z Music Factory was able to provide other advantages to their customers as well. Building quotes took a fraction of the time, which means clients got a response much faster. Because the company works with many repeat customers, Brandon loves that all client conversations are organized by project, keeping their team on track.
A2Z Music Factory also utilizes Goodshuffle Pro’s customizable Website Wishlist Integration, which allows them to effortlessly sync their inventory from Goodshuffle Pro onto their website. It also creates a seamless shopping experience for their clients.
These features, coupled with the professionally branded proposals, have overall elevated A2Z Music Factory’s brand and sales. This goes above and beyond their initial mission to streamline their back of house logistics.
As Brandon says, “It’s very fast and easy to build quotes for customers, get invoices signed and process payments online. We haven't double booked a single piece of equipment since we've had the software. It's saved me so many headaches. My team and I are very grateful for their awesome customer service, too.”
As time goes on, the company plans to invest in more rentals for their business. They plan on expanding the company while holding true to their mission of happy customers. Goodshuffle Pro will continue to empower their business operations so the team at A2Z Music Factory can continue achieving their goals.
