Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Splash Event Marketing Platform

It is perfect for small businesses to provide information on their location, services, etc. I like using it for creating events and raising awareness among our Driver Community. My team and I have solely used it for creating events. However, I do not believe that it would be good for anyone trying to achieve an interactive website. Somewhere else that it could improve is the formatting across different devices (tablets, phones, and computers).

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.

  • Templatization that is stunning and works well - LOVE the options.
  • User-friendly - anyone with very limited experience and an ounce of taste can create some amazing stuff.
  • Support - very helpful with questions.

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.

  • I'm very interested in a tool to help me with assigned seating based on the guests who are present.
  • I want more functionality in customizing emails. The fact that there are only 6 fonts in the email bank but full functionality in the layout maker is frustrating especially since some people won't click to the splash page if the email isn't enticing.
  • I wish I could take photos of business cards instead of holding up the line with typing in email addresses in the mobile check in.

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.

HubSpot cost more and had fewer features. We used to use HubSpot for a mixture of CRM and newsletter development and occasional invitations for events, but Splash is a far better event tool and we can also hack it to send out newsletters

Return on Investment

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