Integration with Microsoft Access - We use Access for a lot of different Queries, such as for our bar back to know the specifics of each bar. Caterease allows Access to pull data directly so all we have to do is run the report instead of entering all the information manually. Same with diagramming, having software like Placez that pulls from Caterease allows for such things as table and chair counts to be pulled directly from Caterease instead of having to place each individual table.

Eventleaf Online

If you are looking for a way to easily create and manage an event, this is the perfect software for doing so. My colleague and I were not looking forward to the task of organizing an event for our company, but this made it very easy and painless

Eventleaf Online

  • Easy to use: I was a first time user and signing up was super easy.
  • Intuitive: The progam flowed naturally; the order of the tabs and their contents made sense and led me through the process with ease.
  • Comprehensive: While I only used the program to register folks for a fundraiser, it has other options which I will totally use down the road.

Cons

Caterease

  • It’s a great program, but it’s missing some aspects that would be incredibly useful. It has the ability to store venues and locations that you’ve used in the past, but it doesn’t allow you to associate a tax rate with the saved venue. As our company handles events all throughout Southern California and tax rates are constantly changing, it would be nice to be able to assign certain tax rates to certain zip codes and venues.
  • It can be a little finicky sometimes with its equipment conflict algorithm. There will be events In the system that have been marked as cancelled, yet it will insist that an event I am working on has an equipment conflict with it (even though that event is not going through). It will not let you save out of your event and, sometimes, will end up deleting all your changes and progress, which is incredibly frustrating.
  • I wish there was a way to export PDFs of your proposals without re-saving your entire proposal. Sometimes, clients will ask for two versions of the same proposal with just slight changes, and it’s annoying to have to go in and completely re-do and save the proposal and have to adjust it back to the original.
  • It would be nice if there was a way to see a history of all of the changes that had been made in a proposal, that would be great. Because we often have many hands on each event we do, having a comprehensive list of all the changes made to each proposal and the date and times, and users who made these changes would be an incredible asset.

  • This was the first time I used Eventleaf Online; it was recommended to me by a friend who had used it in the past. I had no issues at all but only used it for registration purposes. It did what it said it was going to do, which was a total relief - one less thing I had to think about!

I have not had to use the support in my over 3 years of using Caterease. This is why I gave it a 9 rating because even though I haven't had to interact with support, the fact that I haven't had to use support speaks volumes to how good the software is and how it is user friendly.

Great customer service. My colleague reached out for support midway through planning our event and they replied quickly with a thorough solution to our problem

Alternatives Considered

Caterease

I haven’t used too many other events programs in the past – at a former company, we used the back end of our website in order to create events, but Caterease is a lot more user-friendly. Our website wasn’t particularly fancy – it didn’t allow us to conflict check or see if there was another event at the same time. It was used for the sole purpose of posting the information to our system – not for creating full proposals. Caterease is much more effective for what we need to use it for in this context.

The Above event management platforms don’t compare that well to Eventleaf Online. Eventbrite: Not suitable for professional events. Best platform for social public events.ETouches: Choice for professional events. Upcoming, many components, but none that good. Lanyon: Choice for professional events, expensive, but more focused on hotel booking, venue booking for events etc. Event registration management software doesn’t seem like their main focus.

Return on Investment

Caterease

  • Has made our team more efficient and be able to have a central place to store all info so everyone can access it.
  • Manually printing BEOs has proven to be incredibly inefficient as they get updated quickly and often times just causes confusion and mistakes.
  • It's nice to be able to generate contracts fairly quickly for clients

Eventleaf Online

  • I’ve had numerous benefits since I started using Eventleaf Online for all my events and business meetings. I spend less time organizing and keeping track of agendas and attendees. Eventleaf Online does this all for me. It’s an all in one platform so I’m not downloading and installing a bunch of software and patches that bog down my laptop and take up unnecessary space. It even keeps track of who responded and individual attendee status, giving me a clear picture of who will be attending and who won’t be. Eventleaf Online has solved all the problems associated with planning an event.
