What customers say about PerfectTablePlan

We are very impressed by PerfectTablePlan. We used it to do the seating for a 500+ people gala dinner. I would just like to thank you for an excellent program - it is the best spent EUR 24.95 for a long time.

Magnus Lindell, Globe Forum Business network

I have used your Table planner for the last couple of years for our Association annual dinner with total success, and would like to thank you for making a difficult job easy.

Colin Bates, Secretary, HMS Dido Association

It enables me to visualise the seating plan for our large charity dinner (two rooms, one with 410 diners, the other 100 diners). Before your product I had to try and do the plan on scraps of paper that took me ages! ... It will probably save me days of hard work this year and beyond. Thank you for providing an application that is exactly what I have been looking for.

Paul, SF Ball Ltd

I liked the fact that there's not a lot of extraneous information required, like in wedding planner programs. This is a synagogue, and all we needed was an easy way to seat people at tables for dinners. PerfectTablePlan provided that. I also liked the fact that (again, unlike wedding planners), we can do as many events as we want, without having to delete everyone and start again. And it's very easy to move people from one table to another...All in all, I'm very happy with it. Thanks for a great program.
