Events professionals are expert forecasters – we check the weather weeks in advance (and then hourly!) in anticipation of our clients’ celebrations. We scan social media and the interior design and fashion industries to keep up with the latest trends. The same should be true for your business. Regularly analyzing your potential for income, anticipated expenses and your ability to weather crises can be the key to surviving tough times and capitalizing on the great ones.

NEW FEATURE: Use a Client Questionnaire to Effortlessly Start Your Timelines

Timeline Genius now lets you effortlessly start your timelines by sending an upfront questionnaire to your clients!

Your clients then complete this questionnaire online, and their answers serve as your basic input for starting the timeline.

Why is this such a time saver? Because you don’t have to enter the vendors, venues, or other input to start your timelines. You simply review the answers from your client and approve or reject their input with the click of a button.
