Meet SitPlan: An Event-Works companion app for seating made simple

How much time do you spend planning where people should sit at your congress, general assembly, or award ceremony? How fast can you check-in and seat 600 guests at your awards banquet? What about making sure the right people have the right seats based on protocol policies and hospitality packages? Bet you didn’t know Event-Works has a solution for this, did you? Well, meet SitPlan.

SitPlan is one of our web-based companion applications which helps event managers get rid of at least one more excel sheet in exchange for an innovative digital tool fully integrated with their all-in-one event management solution Event-Works.

Practically speaking this application converts a static venue floor plan into a virtual whiteboard allowing users to build a customised seating strategy with configurable tables, chairs, and other required objects.  With clever data management tools, event planners can also create rules, visual cues, and generate reports to help communicate and implement seating protocols and policies.

Outside of building a seating plan, this tool also seamlessly synchronises participant data with a click of a button.  By bringing in the latest guest list information such as dietary preferences or attendance, on-site welcome teams have all the most up-to-date information ensuring they are ready to deliver fast, effective, and most importantly personalised check-in experiences for all guests. 

Speaking of on-site.  SitPlan, at its core, is a mobile app made for tablets ensuring welcome teams and event organisers can manage check-in and seating across several entry points and while on-the-go.  Just last week SitPlan was used at the FIM Awards in Monaco sitting over 500 guests in under 30 minutes.

Like all Wiz-Team’s solutions, this unique application is creatively used across a range of client types including sport and governmental institutions.  As a result, we are constantly receiving great feedback, new ideas, and innovative use cases keeping this niche feature of Event-Works evolving to keep pace with industry needs.

JOHANN

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
