5 More Useful Apps for Event Planners
If you’ve read our 5 Useful Apps For Event Planning blog post, you know we’re a fan of any app that can make an event planner’s job less stressful and more efficient. While our previous post may help you while you’re working on your event, we’ve decided to share more apps in our digital tool kit that will help you plan and prepare for your next upcoming event. We love that these allow you to do your job from virtually anywhere, because we know event planners are busy, and getting things done from wherever you are is key!
Super Planner is an app that has a bunch of tools to help you plan your next event, including calculators for capacity, staffing, and catering. It will make you feel like you have a virtual assistant in your pocket, and save you a ton of time second-guessing yourself.
Evernote is an app that is able to sync between you computer, smartphone, and tablet - making all of your notes, to-do lists, and checklists accessible wherever you are. As planners, we live by checklists, and If you’ve ever used sticky notes to keep track of your event details, you’ll want to download this app and start keeping track of all your event details digitally.
Or any other event mobile app. Having a mobile app for your event helps not only your attendees but you as well! If you have a last-minute change to the agenda or need to get a message out to your attendees, alerting them using your mobile app is quick and easy. Mobile apps also provide you with useful metrics after your event, and you can get rid of those paper event guides!
Or any other ticketing app. If you are using Eventbrite to sell tickets to your events downloading the app will allow you to keep track of ticket sales and attendee check-ins in real-time. You’ll be able to adjust and update your event from anywhere and will have access to a ton of metrics to help you maximize the success of your event, all from your phone.
Another favorite and useful app for any event planner is a scanner app. If you’re working from a remote location, and need to scan or save a piece of paper, having a scanner app on your phone is an easy way to make sure you don’t lose any important documents while on the road. It will come in handy more often than you think!
