Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

EventMobi

EventMobi is great for groups that need to have online as well as offline access to the app. It's user-friendly for the less tech savvy attendee and you don't need to have a technical background in order to build the app. It is well suited for all levels of staff to enter and manage information.

Pros

  • 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.

  • The interactive map is great for getting attendees to the right locations.
  • Gamification is great for getting people involved in a fun way.
  • The schedule is easy to upload and manage onsite.
  • The user and speaker profiles allow attendees and speakers to have greater visibility before, during and after the conference.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The attendee list is hard to keep sorted by last name.

Alternatives Considered

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've reviewed multiple apps, and chose EventMobi because we are able to build the app by ourselves using the templates they provide. We also liked that it could be used on any type of device both online and off.

Return on Investment

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

  • We had an over 83% user adoption in the first year of use. Our exhibitors have reached a greater number of attendees and we've been able to engage students in ways that we haven't been able to in the past.
  • The mobile app, paired with a greatly scaled down version of the paper program have cut our program budget in half and we are able to provide much more timely and accurate information to attendees.
