Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Picatic

Picatic is well suited for online sales of tickets for events. I haven't used it for anything else, so I cannot comment on where it would be less appropriate.

  • I loved the overall registration and attendee list that was made available. It easily smoothed out the process for getting people through the door and sitting down.
  • It was very easy to export the event database into our larger CRM tool so that we can follow-up easily and effectively with those that attended and those that missed.
  • The ease of setup for each event allowed us to get an entire event setup and running in just a few hours. It was made even faster for our repetitive events because we could just use the page from the previous one.

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 landing pages although decent could be better improved so that they convert better when people get hit with them.
  • I think the analytics tool could also be improved so that a person could track where leads come from easier.
  • I think they could also make it easier to see who is paying the processing fee easier to find. There were a few times that it took a little bit of time to get the overall pricing set-up just the way that I wanted it.

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.

Picatic was the switch I made from using both Constant Contact and Eventbrite because it was a faster and easier platform to handle. It also did not come with a high monthly cost and out more information above the registration link. Overall the landing pages are much better on Picatic than they were on any other site

Return on Investment

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

  • It had a positive impact when charging for events because the money showed up before the event which helped with cash flow for food and beverages and rental space.
  • Time to set up and launch a landing page for creating events reduced from 8 hours to 3 hours once I made the switch. It was also a time saver to have the reminder emails function directly on the page as well.
