Chicago, IL, October 08, 2010 -- Guest Management Services LLC is excited to introduce a new concept in online invitations: www.IdealSeat.com. The new Website represents a high-tech solution that simplifies the tedious invitation process for event organizers.
"We offer electronic invitations free of charge with the added functionality that the host of the event can create an interactive seating chart using our intuitive tools," said co-founder Santiago Vazquez. "The host can then assign seats himself, or send the invitations and let the guests pick their own seats-just like when you buy an airline ticket online."
IdealSeat is an innovative Website that can save time and effort for organizers of events of all types and sizes. Event hosts can use the site for a variety of tasks, including generating online invitations, create interactive seating charts, collecting payments (when required), managing guest lists and controlling the RSVP process. "Organizers of events can leave the burden of seating assignments to the guests," Vazquez said. "Not only does this benefit the host, it benefits the guests as well. They can choose their ideal seat."
The Website allows organizers to select from two event packages: Basic and Premium. The Basic package, which is free, allows users to send online invitations with interactive seating charts for up to 50 guests. The Premium package-available for just $9.95-is designed for organizers with more than 50 guests or who are planning a paid event.
Setting up an event at www.IdealSeat.com is easy. Users simply select a category and an invitation design and then enter their event details. They can add a custom URL, images and create their event layout based on the room size and furniture placement. The organizer can then define different sections such as "Family," "Friends," "Co-workers," etc. If the event requires payment, the sections can be price points throughout the venueâ€™s different seating options. If a guest is assigned to a specific section, he or she will only be allowed to select a seat with in that section.
The Website also features a "Poll Guest" option that allows hosts to create both private and public questions. Private questions help the organizer to better plan the event and can range from drink preferences and food allergies to favorite music and expected arrival time. Answers to public questions are viewable by all guests and are meant to stimulate interaction and facilitate seat selection. Public questions can range from sex and age to marital status and relationship to the organizer.
IdealSeat also offers custom developed solutions to give venues a cost-effective way to sell seats online. The Website's account representatives and world-class programming team work closely with companies to provide hosting, site management, support and continuous enhancements to ensure their venue is optimizing ticketing revenue. With this solution, IdealSeat handles the ticketing, collection and seat assignment process, leaving users more time to focus on managing and growing their business. "We are the next generation of Evite and a do-it-yourself Ticketmaster all in one place," Vazquez said.
Co-founded by Vazquez and Raul Quino, IdealSeat is supported by a solid management and advisory team with a strong background in startup ventures, event planning, international business, marketing and product development. IdealSeat is a product driven by the need for a better seating assignment system. In the past, creating seating assignments has been a cumbersome task for organizers of weddings, charity fundraisers and other events. In addition, event attendees can be quite finicky about seating arrangements. IdealSeat offers a simple online invitation and seating solution that is both affordable and hassle-free. "There is nothing like it out there," Vazquez said. Â
