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.

RunSignUp

It is well suited for when you are hosting an event and need a one-stop-shop for information and registration needs on one platform. It may be less appropriate for smaller-scale events but for anything 50+ I would say this is much easier than trying to use one point of contact.

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.

RunSignUp

  • Additional information on participants.
  • Messaging to users or participants.
  • Calendar function is hard to use.

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

RunSignUp

I liked RunSignUp much more as it was much better suited for what we were looking to use it for and do. The functionality matched our needs and we were able to fine-tune exactly what we needed from the system without losing too much of the user experience.

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.

RunSignUp

  • RunSignUp has simplified the way we communicate with our registrants.
  • RunSignUp makes it easy to update our race page from year to year by pulling from the previous year’s event.
