Harrogate-based Joe Manby Limited believe that keeping up to date with technology is essential as they strive to ensure that their customers get the best possible service. To achieve this their capital investment programme continued in December with the upgrading of their Design Office hardware and, more significantly, with the installation of a new software package for the production of floor plans.

Whilst they will continue to produce event floorplans as an integral part of our shell scheme service,‘Floorplan Live’ enables us to offer organisers the additional option of viewing and making amendments / additions to their own floorplans online. ‘Floorplan Live’ is a simple-to-use event management solution that, for a hosting fee, allows organisers to efficiently manage their own floorplan online via a web browser. The programme provides the organiser with the facility to edit stand details, combine or split stands, receive up-to-the-second reporting and produce pdf plans. All online changes or requests made are recorded into an easy-to-search historical journal.

Divisional Director Greg Cussons said: “We had been looking for some time at how we could enhance our drawing office services for organisers and ‘Floorplan Live’ allows us do just that.  It gives an event organiser the option of managing their own floorplan which is particularly helpful where they have multi-sales teams working on the same event”.
