Certain Event Automation Software

Certain is very well suited for any type of event or tradeshow that require specific fields from registrants and an automated email sequence to keep them engaged.It's less appropriate for one-off events, since setting up those pages can be quite complex if you're used to the types of Eventbrite/Sympla. If you don't really build event pages regularly, I'd recommend a software that's more simple, which should address what you need.

  • WELL SUITED: On-site check-in, Onsite badging, Mobile Ticketing. Integration into the Cvent platform, mobile app, and other ends to end solutions within the tech stack. GDPR and CCPA privacy.
  • LESS APPROPRIATE: Cvent Onsite Solutions (formerly AlliancaTech) priced higher than competitors and limits # of events we can leverage for consistency. We want to be device rental free and have the app on our phones and real-time upload to master files.

Cons

Certain Event Automation Software

  • Dashboards: It's quite important for leadership to get a visual of what their event registrants look like (with graphs, for example). Now, Certain does not present a feature to create dashboards, so we have to export their reports and create our dashboards ourselves.
  • UX when setting up an event: Now this can be quite complex, as it's not as easy to use or intuitive. Many different tabs with many different sub-items can present a confusing experience for newcomers when building an event.

  • Pricing. If we can get lower pricing, we can use for more events.
  • Buying our own on-site kits vs having Cvent team needing to be onsite.

The person onsite can be hit or miss. We have had a few really wonderful support technicians that came prepared, were helpful, and jumped in where needed. We have had others that sat back, didn't offer advice or best practices tips, and were not pleasant to work with. It's very hit or miss.

Alternatives Considered

Certain Event Automation Software

My company selected Certain and continues to use Certain because it is quick, easy, and efficient. We create up to 20 registration links a year and Certain allows us to create templates to copy and create annual event links very fast. I also love that there is someone there to speak to if I ever need assistance

  • One not listed here is iCapture. We use iCapture right now for lead capture. It's easy to use and priced well, and we leverage all of our events. It's easy to use the tool.
  • Moved away from Aventri/E-Touches quickly after being stuck in a 3-year contract. We started with Cvent Onsite Solutions (formerly AllianceTech), and procurement moved us to Aventri. After a good battle, we were able to move back to Cvent Onsite Solutions (formerly AllianceTeach).

Return on Investment

Certain Event Automation Software

  • Certain helps to deliver a great customer experience, since it facilitates automatic email delivery and your company can keep them connected well before or well after an event.
  • Certain presents a wide variety of reports, which perfectly addresses any request for visibility coming from your organization.
  • Certain's configuration settings are quite complex, so our newcomers are not comfortable using the software at first.
  • In case you need a more visual representation of your audience, Certain, unfortunately, does not generate dashboards.

  • Better knowledge for how Cvent Event Management works by event planners on our team.
