Alright Betty, put the event binder down and slowly back away. That 40-lb. albatross is weighing you down and destroying the environment. How many trees have to die before you acknowledge there’s a better way to plan and manage your meetings and events? Don’t believe me? Check out these digital project management systems.
Are there alternatives to the above? Of course! I know planners who dig Asana as a project management tool and Liz King has written much about eTouches, which offers a suite of tools to source, plan, promote, market and matchmake at your events. Tied to your tablet and phone? Then you might prefer planning using these apps. And there are seven other event management software companies you can research on this site.
Just remember: Online project management tools are only as useful as you make them. If you don’t like the user interface, or if you don’t understand how it will save you time, you’ll never use it. Similarly, it’s no use committing to a platform without training your team on best practices. So set yourself up for success and build in time to learn before you plunge in.
