Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Eventbrite

Eventbrite is a great event management platform for all parties: the organizer, attendees and even those that couldn't make it!For the organizer, they are able to clearly communicate any information with those attending or interested in attending the event.For the attendees, they are easily able to access event details, communicate with the organizer, as well as add events to their personal calendar.And for those that couldn't attend, they're able to get in touch with the organizer for any follow up questions and output where applicable.

Pros

ACTIVE Network

  • I like the appearance of the booking confirmations - it is more visually appealing.
  • The booking module is fairly simple and user friendly.
  • It works with our campus financial system and allows the system to take payments for bookings, which we cannot do with EMS currently.

  • Allows for easy payment acceptance
  • Allows for fast post-event follow up and helps build out your email marketing list for future events

Cons

ACTIVE Network

  • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
  • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
  • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

Eventbrite

  • Non-profit version should be available for a lower cost on ticket sales
  • Difficult beginner learning curve
  • Not 100% customizable

So easy to setup and build an event, especially for someone like me with limited programming experience.

Alternatives Considered

ACTIVE Network

I would continue using ActiveNet over EMS only because it connects and talks back to Banner, which EMS currently lacks. Otherwise I am not sure I would choose it over anything else as the functionality isn't quite the same as the competition.

We used eventbrite before we had this program in place. I also still use this program personally to help get my events out to the public.

Return on Investment

ACTIVE Network

  • Not sure yet.
  • It is newer to me and my department.
  • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

Eventbrite

  • Eventbrite has allowed me to engage in a number of activities that may have gone unnoticed by me otherwise.
  • Because of Eventbrite I've attended affairs at some great venues, many of which I've never visited before.
  • The site has allowed me to make a number of new contacts and renew acquaintances with others.
