I can’t disagree with the experts. While the existence of advancing technology and party planning applications doesn’t necessitate their use, it is a certain convenience that these budding avenues show such promise of smoothing over the arduous process of putting together an event? If offered the opportunity to streamline the most sticky and slow-moving parts of event planning, one would be remiss to not ignore it. In an earlier post, I mentioned the benefits of SharedIt, an app that allows users to share their experiences with others while immersed in the moment, but what if we go behind the scenes? How do we expedite the tolling task of constructing and managing the scaffold of a party itself? How can we innovate to juggle the many variables in the equation? Older methods of compiling data through manual entry into spreadsheets eat up large portions of time that could be better spent elsewhere. Shuffling between separated and unorganized programs and files can plainly become annoying and can diminish work performance diverting us from our greater potential.
Introducing Pro Party Planner released by Zysco: costing only the price of a single-use notebook and a pack of post-it notes, this new application combines all the capabilities of an office desk into one convenient package with a modest and navigable interface. Packed with guest and party-specific timelines (from seating arrangements to RSVP updates), checklists to oversee orders of anything from food to furnishings, overviews of the party budget, and Facebook syncing features, the app doesn’t overlook any of the essential components of assembly. From big-picture to fine detail, the app walks you through the set-up of your event. Consider it the king of both the lay of the land, and its logistics.
Pro Party Planner is featured on all the lists of the top applications, and shows an impressive majority of 5-star reviews. For small events such as a weekend birthday party at a restaurant and for large events with hundreds of guests such as a wedding with full catering service I would choose Pro Party Planner.
