Top 5 BlackBerry apps for meeting planners05/12/2011 Advertisement
It is no secret that accessing your e-mail, messaging with BBM, and updating your every move via Facebook or Twitter are all incredibly convenient. But the Smartphone got its name for a reason...
Blackberry has long been considered the phone for business. Bedouk’s top 5 apps for Blackberry reflect this Smartphone’s professional demeanor while considering the specific technological demands of the average meeting planner.
Meeting planners are constantly on the move. Dropbox now provides you with a cloud to store large files in order to access them later without having to save to your BlackBerry (and thus take up valuable memory space). This is the perfect app for bringing video and audio files to your next meeting. Simply synch your Blackberry with Dropbox servers.
It’s been hard getting work done out of the office…until now. Documents to Go Premium Edition allows you to open, create and edit your Microsoft Office files. This includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint! You can open, re-name, delete, edit and move any file you choose. You can even access quickly and view clearly any PDF document. There is no longer a need to drag your laptop everywhere! All your contracts, meeting notes, presentations, directions and lists are conveniently located in one central place.
WiFi File Transfer, by Chocolate Chunk Apps, could litterally save you. With this app, you’ll no longer need a desktop manager, USB driver or any other third party application for file storage. WiFi File Transfer gives you the capability to transfer files between your BlackBerry and any other Smartphone, PC or Mac on the same WiFi network. You can take your files on the road and even print. It is well worth its $4,94 price and an easy substitute for e-mail.
CardSnap is the perfect app for any MICE professional, particularly during and after a tradeshow. For $4,94, you can easily save yourself a lengthy search through piles of business cards in order to locate just one prospective client. CardSnap allows you to capture the business card image (with your Blackberry camera) in order to process it through the CardSnap character recognition system and contact data element identification algorithm. Voila! A manageable and accessible contact.
Super Planner is perhaps the most useful app listed here for our meeting planners. This app is a meeting planner’s dream, providing an easy way to combine client demands with venue capacity. There are tools for staffing and catering, estimating food and drink numbers based on the number of delegates, and even audio/visual tips based on seat placement and screen size. Planners can review seating capacity, table arrangements and sizes, a room’s square footage as well as AV staging diagrams, all in the palm of your hand.
