This blog is part of the GQueues 2015 Customer Success series. Every week through May, we will feature a valued customer’s experience to showcase how their organization increases productivity, collaboration and efficiency using GQueues. To view all the success stories, please visit www.gqueues.com/customers.
The Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum is located on the Brigham Young University campus in Provo, Utah. Founded in 1978, it houses more than 2 million insects, plants, reptiles, birds and fish and attracts over 100,000 visitors every year. Student educators give live animal shows to the public, both on-campus and in local schools.
After the museum transitioned to Google Apps in 2012, Katy Knight, Museum Educational Administrator, needed a task manager that would be easy for both staff and student educators to learn and that would integrate with Google. Knight discovered GQueues and after reading its reviews, decided to use it to coordinate her students’ live animal shows.
Knight’s favorite feature is GQueues’ Calendar integration with text message reminders. Students’ accountability for animal shows has improved since they can now check tasks right from their cell phones.
Overall, GQueues has helped the museum provide higher quality educational shows to the public. “The system we have runs so smoothly that we don’t have to worry about every little show that comes up. We know students will be reminded of their events, which reduces stress,” Knight commented.
