Event planners are some of the busiest (and most stressed) people in the world. We're balancing a million tasks and trying to brand our businesses, earn new clients and connect with future prospects all at the same time. And how do we do it all? With a little help from technology. Planners around the globe have found apps in all sectors that make our work a little easier and faster, but we're always looking for the next big thing. Today, I'm going to share the 4 apps I've found recently that I absolutely LOVE. Check them out and let me know what you think.
This software tool allows your team to communicate seamlessly. We're all lost in overstuffed inboxes, but this tool allows your team to communicate in the forms that work for them - text message, chat, email etc. Keep your team on the same page without over connecting and causing confusion from disorganized communication. This product is free for small teams and has a small monthly fee for larger teams.
Looking to create some beautiful marketing images for your upcoming event? This simple app allows you to add text over any existing image - great for creating the ever-viral memes or other promotional images. If you're looking to create engaging content without paying for an expensive designer, this simple app will come in very handy.
If you're always on the go in major cities, you're probably always trying to figure out what to do with your car. From street parking options to discounted rates in parking garages, this app makes your parking woes disappear. It's incredibly easy to use and if you're a frequent garage parker in cities like New York, you can save hundreds of dollars a year!
Don't get lost the next time you have a client meeting in a new area. Instead, use WAZE - a GPS navigation tool that gives great directions, but also uses user-reporting to warn you of upcoming traffic, construction or other hazards. It'll even alert you when it's found a faster route and can redirect you with the touch of a button. Because the traffic and hazard data comes from actual users in real-time, you'll be surprised to see how realistic it is!
