Emble could be the best way to herd cats (people) for meetings, events

(Tech News) Emble has finally entered a public beta stage and is one of our favorite new tools that will make us all happier and more productive.

Emble is a dream app

We host a lot of events, ranging from small groups for coffee and mentoring to large networking events with hundreds of attendees. Like any other business, we also have meetings that require herding cats people and their complicated schedule.

If you want to please as many people as possible, it’s usually a delicate dance that ends in hair being torn out. This doesn’t happen when you use Emble, a new app that launched today in beta to help cure your hair-tearing-out.

It allows a host to suggest some ideas for the event (which we used to indicate location instead of event type), and dates, then putting it out allows people to vote, and other collaborators to suggest more dates or ideas. The comments section could be golden as well, and you can even collect funds if you’re doing a group event with a set price. They do require you to prove your identity if you collect over a certain amount of funds, and it isn’t a ticket sales system, rather a date/event/venue selection tool.

The design is so easy and streamlined, that anyone can figure it out, even someone who’s never been on the internet before. Easy. Seriously.
