An essential part of any PA’s job is of course, event planning. It can be as stressful as it can be fun. Planning the perfect event is an art form rather than a skill. Vincenzo Ferrara finds out if the new App from PartyMaker, is designed to cut out a lot of the hard work and put the ‘party’ back into party planning.
PartyMaker-Event Planner App is an all in one event planning app that will allow you to plan your next work conference quickly and simply. Created by professional party planners in order to simplify the workload in creating an event to just one very simple app.
Logging on for the first time
When you log on for the first time, you are greeted by a welcome page that gives you several options. A free trial usage option to see if the app is for you or you can sign up for a paid version (see below for more information). Once you have selected your option, it is very quick and easy to set. The full set up takes a few seconds and includes your full names, phone number and makes you add a password. You will then receive a text verification code that allows you to log in. You then arrive at the home screen, which gives you options for booking an event.
What can I do on the App?
Once you have selected the type of event you are looking to plan and have input details: name, date and location. You are given a menu which gives you the option to ‘Book Your Vendors’. The app is pre-loaded with lists of pre-approved vendors that are ready for you to select and give you a quote for your event. The list includes everything from: entertainment and hospitality, food and drinks, decor and photo and video. The app will give you the chance to find a vendor, contact your vendor and discuss quotes and finally book and pay for your vendor via the app, with no extra costs.
The app also allows you to design invitations to your event on the app, with pre-designed templates that you can customise with your own images and text. From this you can use the app to invite your guests and keep track of when and who have RSVP’d.
For users planning multiple events, the app allows you to calendar the events as and when they come up. It can also collect all the photos and videos taken by the guests’ phones in the event album for the guests to comment, like and share.
Am I protected if my vendor cancels?
The PartyMaker Event Protection Policy is clear to read via the app and will give you all the information you need to know about cancellations and other problems that can happen at events. Any questions and you can contact PartyMaker via the app.
Can I download the app?
Currently, the app is only downloadable for Apple devices via the Apple Appstore. On other devices, the app is ready to use via the PartyMakerApp website, which you can bookmark to your device home screen for quick access.
