"Wedding Planner Software"

What do you like best?

I love the way that it has grown over the years as I've been a subscriber for over 10 years. I also enjoy the ease of use.

What do you dislike?

Since it started so long ago it will need a complete re-vamp to continue to compete.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I love it, it may take a while to get it all set up but once you do it is easy and clients love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for reminders and calendar appointments with clients, planning lists and a lot more.

"Planning Pod helps a busy wedding and event planner"

What do you like best?

That I can create events by name and date. I can add pictures to each event and assign vendors and users to each event. It also allows me to assign different levels to each user. So if I want to assign an event to a client, they will only have access to their event and none other.

What do you dislike?

There are not many downsides, but the few I have found are: the floorplan is a bit off in the dimensions. Twice I've mapped out a room and when we attempted to lay it out, we did not have enough space. The other is that in the old version you could label vendors by category and find them all easily. Now you have to tag them and sometimes we forget to tag them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used to write out everything in the customer file, so communicating this to all vendors involved was difficult. Something would always fall through the cracks. Not anymore because with the sharing everyone is on the same page.

"Very basic functionality, but good value for the cost"

What do you like best?

My impression is that this is a very low-cost tool that suits our very basic need for an event management software. Easily store information related to events and create checklists, coordinate with a team, etc.

What do you dislike?

The UI is a bit clunky, and I sometimes wonder if a shared Evernote folder with checklists could achieve the same results. More integrations with other systems - like Salesforce - might be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't expect it to be more than a pretty basic tool!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping events organized - specifically trade shows.

"Good Organization Tool, Although not very flexible "

What do you like best?

I love that planning pod is a one stop shop for invoicing, contracts, scheduling, etc. We used it when I worked as a wedding coordinator.

What do you dislike?

It’s difficult to get contracts to say exactly what we need them to. You have to work within Planning Pod’s templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are having communication errors or struggling to keep all your employees on the same page, planning pod is perfect for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having all of our scheduling and invoicing information in a single place. Not using different products to manage different aspects of each wedding. Definitely helps us avoid errors.
