As the leading software provider in the diverse event planning industry, we at Caterease have established partnerships with other prominent players to provide our customers with the most robust, feature-rich solution available. One of those partners is AllSeated – a dynamic room diagramming software that integrates directly with Caterease and allows users to create and maintain detailed drawings of their event spaces and collaborate easily with their customers.
Below, Sandy Hammer, Co-Founder and CMO of AllSeated, shares some amazing features that make AllSeated stand out.
AllSeated’s online network for planning events provides users the collaborative tools needed to easily organize, manage and collaborate on all planning aspects of an event. This is a program that offers many features that can aid your team on a day to day basis. Here are 8 features that we feel separate AllSeated from the pack.
1) Guest List
Your clients will be able to build and manage their guest list within the AllSeated account. They can include important guest information such as mailing addresses while having the ability to group guests, assign meal preferences and update RSVP’s. AllSeated’s guest list also allows your client to track guests, keep notes, enter meal type information and run reports in real time.
AllSeated gives you peace of mind as all of your floorplans and furniture pieces are built to-scale. You can choose from a wide variety of table shapes and sizes from our furniture library while also having the ability to customize the spacing between tables, number of chairs around each table, table numbers and table assignments. (There are already 100,000 venue floorplans in the AllSeated system. If you cannot locate the venue for an event, we can upload the floorplans for you and add them to your account.
3) Seating Arrangements
Your guest list links directly to your seating which allows you to easily seat guests and arrange the seating chart for the event. AllSeated also offers the option to seat your guests at specific seats, by first placing them at a table, clicking that table, and assigning them to their specific seat.
The collaborative nature of AllSeated provides a true event management system for everyone involved. A vendor timeline will allow for vendors to understand the flow of set up, event details and the timing of break down at the end of the night.
5) Day of Mobile App
AllSeated’s Day-Of Mobile App for tablets allows access to your event on the go with a full check-in system including real-time collaboration, live check-in updates, overview of check-in status and ability to view your floorplans in both 2D and 3D. The Mobile App allows you to let guests know where they are sitting too!
6) Table & Buffet Builder
AllSeated’s Designer Tool has some amazing new premium features! Our Scaled Table & Buffet Builder shows you exactly what can fit on a tabletop, so there is no more guesswork around how the tabletop layout will look on the day of your event. Choose from generic items in our Object Library to design a to-scale version of your tables and buffets. We will be including linens, center pieces and more and don’t forget the 3D rendering that is going to relax the whole day!
Give your clients a gift they will never forget! AllSeated now offers the experience of creating a Virtual Reality (VR) “look around” of a 3D designed floorplan. The VR offer will include a pair of goggles that hold a mobile phone so that you can view your floorplans anywhere and anytime. A link to the VR instance of your floorplan will be sent via email. Once you receive the link simply click it to walk through a designed, to-scale, realistic version of the event via a mobile AllSeated App.
8) 360 RealPlans-3D
8 out of your 10 clients will either visit your property in-person or send a friend or family member to experience your venue before signing a contract.
