Are you looking for ways to improve the productivity of your event planning business? You should consider investing in an iPad. Especially for small businesses with a staff of one or two, this handy little tool will prove to be so helpful when you’re trying to get everything done by yourself. Download the apps that you think will be most helpful to you to get the most out of this gadget.

Get organized

An iPad will allow you to boost your productivity immensely. Because the screen is larger than a phone, it’s so much easier to take notes when you’re on-the-go (and read those notes later!). When you’re away from the office, say meeting with clients or vendors, all those papers in your briefcase can easily become disorganized. Contracts, schedules, contact information and invoices – why not put them all in one easy-to-access place? Just make sure to back everything up on an external hard drive or an online cloud when you get back to the office so you don’t lose anything!

The apps

Oh, the apps. This is the best reason to invest in an iPad – the apps are easier to use than on a phone, will allow you to keep in contact with people throughout the day, and can help you get the most out of a busy schedule. As an event planner, you’re juggling about 100 things at once – venue, vendors, schedules, and appointments. After a certain point, sticky notes just won’t cut it anymore. Our top pick for event planner apps is Super Planner. This app offers a bunch of planning tools, like a calculator that helps you quickly determine venue capacity, amount of food and drink required, number of staff required, and more. You’ll appreciate giving your brain a break on a busy day.
