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

ThunderTix

We are a community theatre and ThunderTix works great for us. We would believe any type of organization that plans and runs events would find it as beneficial as we do.

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.

  • Excellent customer service.
  • Listens and responds to customer suggestions and implements changes based on user community suggestions.
  • One of the easiest systems to use. We tried several and this was the easiest we found by far.

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".

They are quick to respond to both calls and email. They also have a robust online set of documentation and tools that offer the possibility of finding your own answer. But, even if you don't use it, ThunderTix never asks the "did you check our online resources" questions. They never complain about emails or calls. They are there to help and do a fantastic job!

It was an easy transition that took less than a month from planning to implementation

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.

We felt ThunderTix was easier to use not to mention lower in cost to us and to our patrons.

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.

  • It has reduced our administration time. We were doing a lot of manual work before. Patrons had to leave voice messages and we would return them.
  • It allows our patrons to self-service their own requests and get immediate service instead of waiting on us to return calls.
