v1.0 What's New in U Party ๐ŸŽ‰

Full statement belowโ€ฆ

Hi there,

Itโ€™s Santiago, the operations lead at U Party.

Thank you for being a loyal customer of our event companies. Weโ€™re extremely excited and (to be completely honest) a little surprised at how many people booked during this โ€˜betaโ€™ period - tens of hundreds of events in the valley, in just the first few years!

As a young entrepreneur, this started as a humble side project where we saw a need to redefine a rental service with simplicity & convenience in mind. We couldnโ€™t find an app (or company) for this that actually worked well, so we had to re-build it ourselves and well, weโ€™ve learned quite a lot!

Since early 2020, We have worked restlessly to finally announce today that our new web app is now available to all events & occasions in Phoenix Metro, this sets our path to being the first on-demand full event service from adding a new membership option for events, financing your order, customer support by phone to even launching a florist shop. Check it out!

Our new hours will run from 10-12 PM, every day

It's finally here: Reserve items on our order portal with the ability to order now, and pay half down.

Order translation

 

New

 

 

 

Improvement

 

 

A minor translation has been added for Order IDs:

  • Order #xxx โ†’ Event #xxx

This helps us better track our event count and understates that only one "order" is permitted per event.
