MobilePlanner improves control and visibility, provides real-time collaboration on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets
VANCOUVER, B.C. – October 15, 2013 – QuickMobile, the global leader in mobile event apps, today introduced MobilePlanner, the industry’s first event planning app for enterprise meeting organizers. MobilePlanner, available now, frees event organizers from the constraints of three-ring binders and spreadsheets, replacing traditional planning tools with a comprehensive mobile solution for smartphones and tablets. Meeting planners who organize multiple events at a time can use MobilePlanner to gain greater control and visibility into pre-event planning activities by taking advantage of real-time communication and managing schedules, notes and documents for vendors, exhibitors, attendees, speakers and sponsors.
“Event planning is complicated, time consuming and challenging, especially for planners who juggle multiple events with various internal and external event teams,” stated Patrick Payne, CEO of QuickMobile. “Most people on the outside underestimate the effort that goes into organizing the many facets of an event. The traditional event planning process is largely manual, and is fraught with communication and execution risk. Our MobilePlanner solution liberates event organizers from most of the labor-intensive tasks and brings all the collaborative and organizational advantages of advanced mobile technology into the planning process, making teams more organized, more productive, and ultimately more successful.”
Payne added, “One of our customers, a Fortune 50 retailer with a team of more than 100 event staff, uses MobilePlanner to organize dozens of meetings a year. The solution has greatly improved team productivity through simplified sharing of schedules and key documents such as contracts, floor plans, banquet event orders, travel itineraries, and contact information. The in-app messaging and notes improve communication and event execution by keeping everyone connected. They really value the peace of mind they get from knowing everyone is on the same page, in touch and accessible from wherever they are; all from a single app that’s easier to use and more environmentally friendly than traditional methods.”
