cue vs. DJ Event Planner

Modern design, built-in templates and workflows, mobile access, and so much more. Let’s dive into the reasons to choose cue to manage your leads, your events, and your business over DJ Event Planner (a.k.a. DJEP).

Access every feature of cue on any device.

From the very start a choice was made that helps every DJ 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.

A modern look you can show off.

A blend of round “touch zones” for your most clickable objects to a smart design that is logically placed, cue has a lot of painstaking effort to make the experience simple and modern.


Manage time in a new and efficient way.

In DJ Event Planner you are forced to use three major areas to collect information about your clients and your event. A separate timeline, a separate forms area, and a separate music picker. This creates a sometimes confusing experience for everyone. cue redefines this experience as a single combined timeline, forms for each section, and a music picker as an all-in-one solution. Keeping it all simple and powerful.

Automation ready out of the box.

One of the biggest challenges using DJEP is its automation tools. So much so that there is a cottage industry of 3rd party tools made to help it out. cue cuts through the clutter by building an out-of-the-box solution for your event workflows complete with templates at every major stage of an event. You can either click and enable the baseline emails or zip through all the entries and put your own spin on your communication.


See exactly where you are with your clients.

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 Search

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.
