Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I believe this would work well for an event you were not needing to promote. Perhaps a Member's Only Event

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.

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

I selected Ticket Bud over Eventbrite because I wanted to have a lower cost take out of each ticket.

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.
