“Our new Seating feature marks the death of sticky-note seating charts – digitizing another key process in the planning and execution of an event,” saidDavid Becker, co-founder of zkipster. “Event planners will now be able to design and collaborate on seating charts in real-time for all sorts of events, from seated events like galas, fundraisers and luncheons to movie premieres and fashion shows.”
The app’s newest feature, a powerful combination of check-in and seating, is just the latest in zkipster’s plan to streamline the event planning process. With Seating, event hosts now have the option to find and access established floor plans, build a floor plan to match their own event, or have zkipster’s team do it for them. zkipster’s multi-device platform allows for collaboration between team members to create and update seating charts in real time, as well as to share seating assignments and make changes right up until the doors open.
zkipster is working to grow a global database starting with leading venues in key cities – including New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and London. This latest feature elevates zkipster from a check-in app to a guest success management platform, combining every aspect of event planning from seating to social media engagement, name badges and guest recognition.
“zkipster’s Seating allows my team to update and share seating charts within a few minutes – helping ensure that our high-profile events run seamlessly even when circumstances on-the-ground change,” said Michael Moore, Vice President and Director of Special Events at Sotheby’s. “This is another tool that will help our guests focus on what’s important: experiencing the world of art.”
