Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Ungerboeck Software

Ungerboeck Software is best suited for small or large service or product based organizations. The "out of the box" work flow process & set up is suitable for most business operations. The flexibility to configure work flow, layout of screens, fields, and individual user settings makes the software suitable to many business types.

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.

  • Ease of use. Once configured and work flow processes are determined, users are up and running in one (1) orientation & training session. Online Knowledge Base and Video tutorials are helpful resources.
  • Customization. The flexibility to customize screens, layouts, fields, etc. is a HUGE benefit. Add or hide fields based on your company needs are available at functional user level.
  • Trace & Notification features. Built-in reminders or "to do" lists keep staff on track. Never miss a deadline! Email w/ full HTML, import and export features are fantastic.

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.

  • At availability booking level, I would like to see an option to add Move In (set up) and Move Out (tear down) times rather than copying/pasting once space is booked.
  • Strengthen the iEBMS field functionality; specifically the online booking request and calendar of events.

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.

This past spring, I had the opportunity to view 25Live (web version of R25). Within 10 minutes, it was determined, 25Live was not suitable for the Event Management Operation. Most suited for the Office of the Registrar's need to book academic classrooms space for class course sections. College Net (25Live) sneak preview. - 25Live offers an Event Management Module, however, with very basic functionality. Does not compete with Ungerboeck Software functionality. - A single event in 25Live with multiple space books, are made up of multiple sub events; unable to view all space bookings on single screen. - Report options are not comparable. - Limited customization; unable to edit screen layouts or fields. - to name a few...

Return on Investment

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

  • Integration of systems.
  • Retention of contracts in easy to find format.
  • Information on each event for analyzing profitability.
