Personify Corp

Well suited for sessions and events information with the exception of large white space areas when viewed. Depending on how your organization is set up the only "less appropriate" area for us would be the actual accounting side, but that is because our accounting department prefers to maintain invoices, etc out of their own system. However, the invoices provided by A2Z does aid them when the are reconciling to their own system

Cons

Personify Corp

  • Coming from software where I had a huge amount of access to the "backend", it would be nice to be able to manipulate areas of the Exhibit Floorplan a little easier with regard to items like tables, chairs, stages, etc. Maybe add some icons that could be pasted into the floorplan for faster success?
  • The agenda within A2Z does not give you the ability to host on your own conference site.
  • The agenda view is sometimes perceived as being too long, there's a lot of extra "white space".

  • The platform can use some tweaking (i.e.: when reserving hotels, adding guest rooms, including meeting rooms - instead of just spaces, which can be confusing when searching).

    Alternatives Considered

    Personify Corp

    A2Z is so much better than ExpoCad. It is easy for the exhibit sales team to use and it is easy for the attendees and vendors to use. Pulling the program book is a cinch now. I don't understand how people still use ExpoCad?!

    Return on Investment

    Personify Corp

    • Positive - it provides one place from which primary players in the conference could pull information. A2Z maintains consistency and lowers the discrepancy issue when everyone tries to keep their own little database.
    • Positive - Time Saver.
    • No negative that I can recall.

    Planned

    • We were able to get repeat business from a new client brought to us by Planned
    • We were able to learn more about what types of virtual event services we'd like to grow as a business, as a result of working with Planned
    • We have not seen a financial ROI for our business yet because we have only worked with one client on the platform and it has been costly for us to accommodate this client
