CUSTOM EVENT PLANNING SOFTWARE: A CASE STUDY

Written by Harish Palaniappan Posted March 17, 2017 by Carolina

The client has been in the event industry for 25+ years. Through the client's experience, they have identified several pain points in the industry that usually go ignored. For instance, most platforms do not facilitate a streamlined communication between event planners and venues/suppliers, which creates a time-consuming problem. The client wanted to focus on helping planners be more productive, organized and encourage collaboration between venues/suppliers and planners while having planners retain more control over the process.

The client decided to address the challenges surrounding the difficulty of communication and collaboration between planners and venues/suppliers. From their familiarity with the industry, they observed that most planners input information in an excel sheet, which they then send to the venue/supplier who also make adjustments to the data. This process of manually inputting details in a spreadsheet can leave room for human error. The client gathered that event planning software isn't really scalable/integrated, and believed event planning should be streamlined and cloud-based.
