Lumi worked really well for us whilst casting Love Island Series 7.

It enabled us to bring our casting boards to life and works incredibly well working remotely with our casting team and presenting to the Exec and Network team.

Their visual boards are just like whiteboards but they look and work so much better.

We tracked our cast through our shortlisting process and it was fantastic to have all our casting cards in one virtual place.

If we aren’t in Lumi from the moment we meet them with our eyes we are wasting time and information.

Digby Mitchell - Executive Producer - Australia's Got Talent - Fremantle Australia

Using Lumi was a joy and it worked exactly as we needed it to on the road.

It collated and captured all the information as we had hoped and in my opinion, it has made the casting process very efficient.

Storing your organisation’s IP in the heads of a couple of overworked people is a bit like keeping your savings under the bed. It’s easily lost…not growing with interest. And it’s not leveraged by other members of any fluctuating, freelance team. This is the IP of your organisation. It’s critical. It should be banked. Easily accessed with one click. Forever. That’s centralisation

‘If it ‘ain’t broke, don’t fix it’?

Why do so many of us insist on sticking to the old ways?  Because it’s safe? Easier? Convenient?  Because we’re afraid to rock the boat? The cost of thinking ‘it’s almost right, so it’ll do for now’ is that you’re losing money, time, and the competition is speeding ahead of you. Having the courage to try something new makes better business sense. That’s a good enough reason to break out of the “comfort zone”.
