You're in great company

Our restaurant group had been using Gather and were really happy with it. However, when we migrated to Tripleseat, we found the user experience to be overwhelming. We're so glad we found Perfect Venue because it is quick to learn, easy to use, the team has great response time and it’s more affordable. It has also helped us streamline and secure our payment processing and guest experience. We’re so glad we made the switch.

Perfect Venue allowed me to organize and revitalize the Event’s Department for Ivywild. Before Perfect Venue, I juggled multiple email inboxes, Excel, Word, Google Docs, a paper calendar, and Google Calendar. Perfect Venue consolidated all of that and saved me 3 hours a day. It also made it easier for me to capture more guests and increase vital revenue.

Gather was our sales team's main tool and it was perfect for our needs. We were then told we had to switch to Tripleseat and it was a nightmare. From the migration, to guests getting confused on how to pay, to training our staff on how to use it - it was a mess. The switch to Perfect Venue has been great and surprisingly easy!

I've been an event sales manager at breweries and restaurants for almost a decade. I've used both Tripleseat and Perfect Venue and there is no comparison. I can do the same tasks in Perfect Venue with half the amount of clicks. Perfect Venue is so easy to use that new team members pick it up on their first day with little guidance!
