Perfect Venue vs Planning Pod in 2021

Planning Pod is a great product for complex event venues as it offer three different products to solve complicated workflows. However, the complexity is confusing and more than what most venues need - plus the added cost for all those features adds up.

We built Perfect Venue for everyone else - Restaurants, Hotels, Breweries, Inns and more.

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.
Chris Reyes, Events Director
Before Perfect Venue, I was using Waze, Google Calendar, PDFs, Google Docs and a Notes app to track events. It was really stressful, time consuming, and details would often fall through the cracks. I've replaced all of that with Perfect Venue. It saves me so much time, my clients love the digital proposals and I can finally relax!
