Overall Satisfaction with Social Tables

Our organization currently uses Social Tables primarily for the Awards Gala that takes place at our annual National Conference event. It is solely used within our event team within the Marketing Department. It allows us to eliminate the very manual process of assigning all (nearly 600) attendees seats for the evening. It also provides valuable reporting and exporting features allowing us quick access to the information on-site.
  • 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.
  • Time: Saves the event planning time from having to do the process manually.
  • Efficiency: On-site allows for great efficiency when we need to export the data or make any changes.
The only other product we have used is Microsoft Excel. There is some level of comfort in using Excel in that it is very manual and can allow a certain level of control. However, by using Social Tables we are able to streamline the entire process and eliminate the risk of human error.
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.
