  • User Interface: Very user-friendly and easy to navigate.
  • Integration/exporting: Allows you to connect with your existing registration as well as export information into your needed format.
  • Data Tags - you can apply data tags that can be used to communicate important details to vendors such as dietary restrictions, meal selection, etc.
  • Stacking Data/Diagrams: Grouping diagrams together into one event would be helpful, or being able to create a couple different versions within the same event/diagram.
  • Diagram Library: Continue to add to the library of diagrams they have stored from venues.
Social Tables offers a great, user-friendly interface to solve many diagram/seating problems that are considered low-hanging fruit. If there are few levels of complexity to the diagram need, Social Tables is well suited. If there are many levels of complexity and data integration, it can get a bit tricky. However, working with their support team there is almost always a solution.

Social Tables is great when you need to collaborate with someone who isn't in the same space as you are. It's also great because they have partnered with a furniture rental company so you can actually place the specific items you are going to be renting, in the space. It's sometimes difficult for a person who's never used social tables to feel comfortable collaborating.

  • Illustrate live 2D and 3D layouts
  • Create and position structures and landmarks in the system effortlessly using the key
  • Drag and drop is priceless
  • The Share feature is incredible for collaboration
  • Social Tables could totally be more tablet friendly. When onsite, it can be difficult to tote a laptop that may be in use at the office.
  • They could also invest in more of a colorful key system, helping to distinguish positioning better.
  • They could add a note feature for some of the updated layouts being emailed back and forth.
It's well-suited for outdoor events, expos, conferences and stadium events. Because of the scaling of the software, it's probably not going to be ideal for events taking place in/on smaller grounds. I.E. 500 [square feet] or less.
