Successful event planners are always on the lookout for more effective ways to get through their daily operations. Event planning and design isn’t just about making pretty props and setting up colorful lights; it takes meticulous time-management skills and plenty of organization.
Whether you want to give your event management company a full transformation or just tweak a few areas that need a little improvement, here are some great apps we think you will appreciate.
- Communication. When you’re in the event industry, there is nothing more important than your lines of communication. You have to stay in touch with clients, colleagues, and vendors. Consider Skype, google hangouts or WhatsApp, as all three apps allow you to send text messages over Wi-Fi. If you need to assign quick tasks, or chat with your team about a particular project, look to Asana, which handles project management like a dream .
- File storage. Speaking of file transfers, you also need a solution for storing files. In the event industry, you are always on the go, so it’s best to have a storage solution that can be easily accessed from anywhere. Apps such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud are nice options. Always be sure to check into storage limitations and cost.
- Contracts. Did you know that contract signatures can now be done digitally? You don’t have to wait around any more thanks to apps such as Adobe Document Cloud, Quickbooks online, HelloSign, and DocuSign. There are a number of programs out there, so it just comes down to which one works best for your business.
