Introducing a new software tool for the Studio 24 project managers

At Studio 24, we have a wide ranging client base including international charities such as CMB UK, and major projects including HS2, London Heathrow and Crossrail. Over the past 3 years we’ve expanded into public sector work with clients including the Crown Commercial Service, the Department for Health and Social Care and the UK Parliament.

These projects require high levels of expertise, often no-fail deadlines and occasionally short timelines.

Our project managers were using a variety of different software tools and excel sheets to manage projects. They wanted one intuitive tool that would free up their day from data input and give them more time to focus on the rest of their job.

We needed a software tool to manage the studio schedule, highlight resource clashes and forecast studio capacity so we can accurately schedule new work. Runn came along at exactly the right time and allows us to do all this and more.

Working with the Runn team

The previous software used by our PMs was well-established but unable to adapt to the needs of the studio. The Runn team are prompt and responsive to suggestions, and Runn has quickly made a positive impact on our work.

We were keen to be involved with Runn because the software was at an early stage of development. The project managers were pleased to have an influential role in Runn’s development, including tailoring it to the needs of the studio. This is one of the benefits of being an early adopter.

Big picture clarity

Being able to add projects that are not confirmed or have a flexible timeline has been a game-changer. With the new overview of all potential commitments, planning is so much easier.

One of the best things about Runn, that we haven’t had with previous tools, is being able to add tentative projects. This gives us the bigger picture so we can be better prepared.

Confident scheduling

One aspect our PMs especially like about Runn is the capacity chart. Having a visual representation of how time in the studio is being used makes for an easy and accessible way to understand schedules.

Because of this, Runn saves our PMs considerable time. Changing schedules can be done in couple of clicks. The studio also use the API to take data from Runn and sync it to the Studio 24 intranet. This allows the team to see their weekly schedule at a glance and allows the management team to run detailed, tailored reports.

The Runn team have a clear understanding of project manager needs and agency realities, and this is reflected in the software.

Working with Studio 24 is deeply impressive. As we build Runn, a platform for next-gen scheduling and resource management, Studio 24 have been with us all the way as early adopters and co-creators. The whole team are forward-looking thinkers and doers, grabbing the future with both hands and making it work in the real world today.
