eTouches seems to be well positioned to serve those needing event registration for small groups up to large conventions. Events with multiple sessions are very well organized and allows the planners to monitor registration and attendance with ease. One issue we have run into is the ability to give a discount to a specific registrant who signs up a group of individuals. We continue to work for a solution to this.

It's a great platform for a virtual event as well as an easy way to create a phone app for an in-person or hybrid event. It's especially good if your event is not simply open to the public and you want to restrict access to the content to those who have paid/registered etc.

Pros

Aventri

  • Manages class size limits very well.
  • Provides information for hotel booking and transfers so that all this information is in one record.
  • Unlimited number of pages for the website is invaluable - we looked at other programs with only 4 pages for the website and that just isn't enough for our clients.

Webex Events

  • Customer service and attention is the best that I have seen. We have use 4-5 different event app systems over the past decade and no one came close to socio in terms of both meeting our needs and responding to questions and issues
  • The product itself is flexible but fairly easy to use. We have a fairly complex event (120+ sessions over three days with hundreds of speakers) and not only did it handle it - but it looked good.
  • Socio continually adds improvements to the product that really do make it better. They provide ample information on how to use each new feature as well.
  • Many of the changes to the product I know came from direct requests made by our organization.

Cons

Aventri

  • Registration on the backend was confusing
  • Sometimes the code would break and take a while to fix (adding images, extra text)
  • Not intuitive for users
Adriana (Adri) Luna | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

  • The standard template to build out the community is pretty rigid. We had to adjust some of our styling and graphics to account for what Socio's template allowed.
  • Inability for event admins to make account changes for users. Several times we had users change jobs, therefore, changing their emails. Each time, we had to go through Socio support to get them access to their account.
  • Documentation and knowledgebase could be more substantive.

I had a few issues while onsite (over the weekend). The support information given to me was incorrect and I had a hard time tracking down how to get assistance while onsite (on a weekend). When you are onsite, issues are usually heightened and need an immediate response, and I didn't get that.

Alternatives Considered

Aventri

We loved CVENT and DoubleDutch, but it was much easier to have all the modules we needed in one platform, which happened to be Aventri.
Megan Baak | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

We have used multiple virtual event platforms in the past, as well as trialed several. We ultimately decided on Webex due to the aesthetics of the website, the incredibly easy build-out process, the 24/5 support, the user-friendly front-end interface, the multiple ways to monetize sponsorships, and ultimately... the price. The value for what you get is incredible compared to other platforms.

Return on Investment

Aventri

  • Much more thorough reporting than previous provider.
  • The ability for long term goal creation based on the objectives evaluated post conference.
Bill Reger | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

  • Socio has improved the ROI on my fundraising events by keeping attendees focus and housed in the event. With Zoom or random links attached they get lost in the web of distractions.
  • Attendees are easily able to connect with speakers, providers and others guests.
  • I can incorporate donation links, monthly giving, and silent auctions all in one easy-to-find place!
  • Sponsors do not feel left out! They can highlight exactly what they want and be engaged virtually!
