ACTIVE Network

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Picatic

This is perfectly suited for any events you wish to promote and where you wish to track specifically who has RSVP'd for the event and perhaps who hasn't.

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.

  • Merging with Facebook Events by providing a url for online ticket sales.
  • Ability to communicate with those registered right through Picatic using pre-set event templates.
  • Ability to print attendee list for quick checkin on the day of your event.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I've not come across other things like ACTIVE Network. I was first introduced to it when I ran a half marathon that used ACTIVE Network to track participant progress. Since that time, I've used ACTIVE Network to read articles about training and running. It is a great tool for anyone interested in fitness.

Picatic has a freemium account and free trial as opposed to Eventbrite. It also provides so many other different features that Eventbrite doesn't offer like: analytics, ticket management, sales reporting, mobile integration, etc. Picatic is also very simple to use as opposed to Eventbrite that is difficult to navigate.

Return on Investment

  • Great user interface
  • Great features for participants and spectators
  • Great information for training athletes

  • I don't think we would have the same number of signups if people weren't able to purchase tickets in advance.
  • Less inexpensive than Eventbrite.
