DID
IT ALL 
BEGIN?

WELL, THE IDEA FOR HEYALL FORMED ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AS I THOUGHT UP A SOLUTION FOR ALL THE TYPICAL PROBLEMS I HAVE FACED AS A WEDDING FLORIST.

Allow me to set the scene for you, I'm lounging on my couch, typing away at my laptop, juggling emails, supplier connections, and social media planning for the week when a wave of frustration hits me. It dawns on me that I don't have a comprehensive list of all the suppliers I'm working with for this big event I'm planning. Cue the groans and eye rolls. Now, I have to reach out to all my couples to get a list of suppliers so I can contact the cake and venue and give credit where it's due on social media.

Needless to say, this is a major pain in the you-know-what. I start wondering why I don't have a better system in place for keeping track of all the vendors involved in these complex events. Sure, I could have each supplier send over their contact info and social media handles at the outset of planning, but what a headache that would be! Who wants to send ten-plus emails just to gather basic info?

That's when inspiration strikes. What if there was an app that could connect event hosts with all their suppliers, and also allow suppliers to connect with each other in one central, streamlined place? And what if the app could include everyone's schedules and plans, to avoid conflicts and ensure that everyone's on the same page? It sounded like a game-changer to me.

I spent the next few weeks fleshing out this idea, thinking back to all the chaotic weddings I'd been a part of in the past. Like the time the ceremony venue had to change at the last minute due to extreme weather, and we had to frantically notify each supplier separately of the new plan. I knew that so many of the problems and headaches that come with event planning could be solved with a single app, one that was organized and user-friendly for everyone involved.

As a wedding florist, I understand firsthand just how many moving parts there are when it comes to coordinating suppliers. Tables need to be set up before I can start arranging the centerpieces, and the plinths need to be delivered before the ceremony flowers can be placed. It's a delicate dance that requires careful coordination and timing. All of this could be made so much smoother if we could do all our planning and communication in one centralized app.

So, with all of these concerns in mind, I set out to create Hey All. This app allows event hosts to store all of their important information in one place, so there's no risk of double-booking suppliers or having people show up at the wrong location. Hosts can easily confirm dates and locations, and all suppliers can communicate with each other easily and efficiently. No more digging through messy email chains and trying to piece together a trail of conversations. Hey All makes it easy to communicate changes and updates, even in the face of unexpected situations like natural disasters or Covid-19 outbreaks.

And now, after months of hard work and dedication, I'm thrilled to announce that Hey All is officially available for all your event planning needs. So, get your suppliers in order and give it a try! Your stress levels (and your sanity) will thank you.
