D.C.–based Goodshuffle recently rolled out a new software tool that provides a single place for event rental and production companies to manage disparate operations in one place.
As Technical.ly DC previously reported, Goodshuffle is looking to bring tech to the process of getting equipment and decor needed for big events. The product, called Goodshuffle Pro, includes features that help the companies who provide the supplies for events track inventory, sales, provide quotes, send invoices and collect payments. According to VP of Growth Karen Gordon, the single tool is needed in an industry where many companies use a variety of different tools.
Since launching out of beta at the beginning of 2018, the tool has been used to bill more than $1 million, Gordon said. So far, the companies have been a mix of large-scale to smaller, more specialized outfits.
The startup also has a marketplace connecting the rental and production companies with the people planning events. It’s looking to integrate Goodshuffle Pro into that system.
“Now, with the merging of the two products, consumers can see in real time what items are available on the date of their event,” cofounder Andrew Garcia said in a statement. “It’s eliminating the endless back and forth phone calls that waste everyone’s time.”
As it adds features and clients, the company is also looking to raise capital that will help expand in engineering and customer success, Gordon said.-30-
