A2Z

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

Certain Event Automation Software

Certain is great for easy-to-use registration sites. It collects all information and user can upload reports easily. It's great to copy the event if you are doing an annual one where the information doesn't drastically change. I love being able to create the link in under an hour and send it out to all attendees. I can also send one large email out to all participants

Pros

  • Tracking from year to year - history provided on the Exhibit side is huge and helps when you have new people working within the platform.
  • Ability to replicate certain areas from year to year which is a huge timesaver.
  • Templates! Templates are huge timesavers, but you still have the ability to brand them and change them if needed.

Cons

  • 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".

  • Coding can be complicated to work with
  • Copying the event can make it more complicated to change/revise patterns
  • Can be very manual when copying and pasting a lot of information

Alternatives Considered

I've used Map Your Show, as well as ExpoCad. Each has their own redeeming qualities, and the success of A2Z is also based on the support you receive from the provider. Customer Support and being assigned to one support team player from A2Z has been huge and we have greatly appreciated it.

My company selected Certain and continues to use Certain because it is quick, easy, and efficient. We create up to 20 registration links a year and Certain allows us to create templates to copy and create annual event links very fast. I also love that there is someone there to speak to if I ever need assistance

Return on Investment

  • 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.
