Venue Booking & Lead Tracking

Simplify how you take in leads and convert them to clients

Never again double-book an event or forget to follow up with a lead. Our CRM prospcting tool lets you input leads on-the-fly or collect them from your Website with our embeddable lead capture form. From there, you can put a hold on a date/time as well as spaces/rooms for a lead, assign followup tasks to your team and create proposals.

When a client is ready to sign on, just send them a proposal/contract from inside your account, collect their signature electronically and book the event. The color-coded calendar inside our venue booking system gives you a clear picture of all your booked events, leads and holds as well as a venue view so you can see what spaces and rooms are booked and when.

Collaboration & Convenience

Simplify how you and your team work and share information

Planning Pod is Web-based so you can invite your team members, contractors and even clients into your account to collaborate ... and you always control the information and areas they can access. Our event venue management website is fully responsive so you and your team can access our application on any computer and any device - including smartphones and tablets.

You can set up unlimited venues, spaces and rooms to track. And with productivity tools at your fingertips to manage tasks, files, worksheets, checklists, messages, notes and forms, you and your team have everything you need to stay on schedule and on the same page.

Event Management Made Easy

Create floorplan layouts, schedules/itineraries and more

Our application extends far beyond online venue booking sofware to provide tools for managing every aspect of your events. This includes an event floorplan and seating chart tool for creating to-scale, colorful layouts for all your room setups. You can even build reusable floorplan templates and create floorplan libraries for your rooms and spaces.

We also offer tools for building and managing timelines/schedules, budgets, and guest lists as well as an event website builder/RSVP collector for each event, which you can put to use yourself or share with clients as a value-add offering.

Business Tools for Venues

A better way to manage proposals, invoices, payments and more

Not only can you manage your bookings and event details with our online venue manager, but you can also manage many business processes. Create customized, colorful proposals with unlimited line items and photo galleries and collect client signoffs online. Build legal contracts and collect binding electronic signatures. Build and send out clean, professional invoices to your clients. And easily accept online credit card payments from your customers so you get paid faster.

You can also track the time your team members spend working on every event; share and store notes and messages regarding each event; and run downloadable .csv reports on events, leads, invoices, tasks and much more. All in one convenient application.
