A cohesive design, built-in templates and workflows, mobile access, and a design concept that solves event industry problems. Lets talk about why you business should consider cue over 17Hats.

17Hats vs cue


Quick To The Heart Of The Event 

All the things necessary to manage your event into a single view. No jumping around to find things. An interface that is made for an event professional as opposed to just a generalists’ tool. 

Mobile, Desktop, Tablet. It just works.

From the very start a choice was made that helps every event professional and client in using cue, responsive design. In more simpler terms cue is 100% usable on phones, tablets, and desktops. No more pinch, zooming, side scrolling, and desperately trying to navigate your platform if you need to access it on a mobile device. Every feature, every function, it’s all made to work on any modern browser on any modern platform.

Timelines for Event Pros

17Hats just isn’t made for us, and it shows when it comes to specific needs like a timeline. And this isn’t just some basic Excel or Word doc, this are forms, milestones, contract timing, all rolled into a template. And your client sees it too. It does not get any easier than this.

Simple automation from the start.

While some platforms have automations, none have the templates and best practives built right into the platform. Start your automations right away with built-in templates or make your own. 

Visually see where you are in an event.

With cue you can visually see where you are throughout the lifecycle of your events. A step progress meter shows you exactly where you are in process and that very progress meter is tied directly in with the automation tools for a simplified experience.

Over 100k businesses seeded into the platform.

One of cue’s unique, user-focused features in our database of more than 100,000 vendors and venues. Which means most likely when you sign up for cue you’ll find your business in our system, ready to be claimed. Similar to Yelp! or Google Maps, once you’ve claimed and updated (or added) your business to our database, you are visible to the rest of the cue-munity of event professionals. Hyber-crowdsourcing for the entire industry.

Venue information like you’ve never seen.

Speaking of crowdsourcing and cue, let’s talk about Venue Intelligence, cue‘s exclusive feature where you and other event pros can share critical information about venues. Knowing what to expect at a venue means you can properly quote an event before a site inspection, and know what potential obstacles to be prepared for when you get there, such as stairs, a challenging local noise ordinance, limited power points, and more. 

Unlimited employee access.

cue simply charges by the business, not by the employee seat. Save money on gaining access to your platform with one flat rate. Also by design you are already added as employee #1 of your company.

A completely FREE tier, or add in the kitchen sink.

Designed by an active mobile DJ. Shaped by you.

Lou Paris is not only the founder of cue, he is customer #1. As an active wedding DJ in the Hudson Valley region of New York, he understands it’s absolutely critical to have a working knowledge of processes and performance day in and day out. More importantly, the mission of cue is to listen to our users and their experiences, taking the best ideas and incorporating them into the platform. This is a collective effort to make cue the best damn event management platform available.
