What customers say about PerfectTablePlan

This is wonderful software you developed here - thank you for all of your help.

Stephan Magro, Assistant Director Events, Harvard University

I've certainly appreciated the program - I used it earlier this month for our Valedictory Dinner, which is a black-tie dinner for 320 people. The person whose role I've stepped into used to allow a team of 3 people a full day (7 hours) to organise the seating for everyone. Even with me manually entering guests seating preferences I was able to get it done by myself in around 2.5 hours - and the result pleased far more people than usual.

Callum Forbes, Secretary of Trinity College, University of Melbourne

A great product which for us has totally streamlined the whole process of producing seating plans.

Simon, Jesus College, Cambridge

PerfectTablePlan is probably the best software purchase I have made for years. It is not only simple to use but produces professional results with the minimum amount of work possible. The first time we used your program it will have saved at least 8 hours work and produced a much more professional end product. Absolutely outstanding value.

Tim, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

I love your program! It's been a great stress reliever and time saver in preparing for one of our institution's biggest events.

Graham, University of Idaho, USA

I love everything about the software. It saves me time and I like the fact that I can change around the seating and delete and insert as needed. It is perfect for me. I really don't know what would make it better.

Jennifer, University of the West indies
