Hyper Plan

Event planning is hard. So many things to remember. So many people to coordinate. And just one forgotten task can be the difference between triumph and disaster. But we can now help with that too!

After nearly 10 years of working on PerfectTablePlan, we are delighted to announce a brand new sister product: Hyper Plan.

Hyper Plan

While PerfectTablePlan is very focussed on planning seating, Hyper Plan is a more general planning tool. It allows you to track tasks, people, dates, budgets, effort and much more in a simple, visual form.

There is a short demo video (2 minutes 45 seconds) here:

And you can download the free trial for Windows or Mac OS X here:

Hyper Plan is not currently for sale. We intend to release a commercial version early next year. We haven't decided a price yet, but it will probably be in the range $30 to $60 per user. Until then, you can use it completely free.  If you sign up for a free trial now you will be eligible for a discount when we launch the commercial version.

We would love to know what you think of Hyper Plan. 

  • Is it useful?
  • What extra features does it need?

Please email us and let us know.

The more feedback, the better. So we would also be very grateful if you could point any other planners you know towards www.hyperplan.com via email, Twitter, Facebook etc.

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)

We have tested PerfectTablePlan v5.2.1 on the new Mac OS X 10.10 release. We have noticed 2 minor cosmetic issues:

  • Text is slightly misaligned in some places, e.g. buttons.
  • The Date field in the Information window doesn't display correctly.

We hope to put out a bug fix release soon to address these. Please let us know if you spot anything else.

Relationship visualization

We came across an impressive visualization of the tangled relationships between countries and organizations in the Middle East. Interestingly, it uses almost exactly the same technique we use for visualizing proximities in PerfectTablePlan.
