CrowdCompass was the best part of Cvent each time I used it, from the ease of use to the customer service and handholding. I would recommend it for anyone using Cvent Event Management for an in-person event. I know Cvent just rolled out their virtual event hub though, so for virtual and hybrid events that are employing the Cvent family of tools, I would probably say CrowdCompass is unnecessary.
RegPack and the RegPack Customer Service team have just been awesome! We work in a very niche market, and RegPack has assisted us in providing a complete service to our clients in an attractive and user-friendly way. And, where and when we do hit speed bumps, RegPack's team has always been at the ready to hold our hands and walk us through. They are super helpful, super responsive, and proactive at every step.

Last year, the gamification did not allow much customization, which was a shame. I hope that by the time I am ready to build my 2020 app, this function has been expandedThe app to upload/edit push notifications was only available on iPhone so I had to have another team member handle that seems I have an android phone.Emails (invites, etc.) often go to junk.
Waitlists - this part of the system doesn’t work like we are used to BUT Regpack is working with us on how to fix it and make it work for us.Payment Method - users can’t change their payment methods on their own.
We have been using CrowdCompass for 3 years and it has all of the capabilities and functionality that we need, it's easy to use, and Cvent is always implementing new features and enhancements to keep up with the latest trends and technology.
It is very easy to use as everything is very intuitive. Configurating an app does not take too much time at the end, especially as soon as you already have done one as you can dupplicate the entire content. This is very practical when you use the app for annual events. Also few elements are not updatable once the app is published. Of course you can't change the entire design and the security settings which is a good thing anyway, but the entire content can be updated which allows you to publish your app quite early in advance to boost the engagement without having to wait to have everything in your hands (for instance the speakers bios or abstracts). Plus by adding more content regularly it encourage your audience to come back also regularly to check what is going on before the event.
It can be time consuming to start a new project, however it's nice that you can duplicate a project and edit from there. I think that while some of the setup takes a while, once it's running smoothly it's definitely worth the cost and time and will pay for itself quickly.
Have not had any issues with availability
Have had no issues
Once we paid for our apps, I felt like I was left to learn on my own. There are plenty of Help articles available, but no training sessions. I'm a visual learner and having to poke around and use trial and error to build the apps took way too much valuable time away from other parts of my job. It was frustrating and I brought it up with my CrowdCompass contact, but was told that they don't provide any training sessions and if I had questions I should refer to the Help articles or call support.
There is no way to speak to a human representative, and that sucks. E-mail support is effective but takes 24 hours to respond. That can feel like a L O N G time when there is a problem that needs attention.
Our training team walked us through the first set up which really helped me to learn where everything is located as well as all of the features available
Don't wait to register with Apple and Google. You can do a lot of prep work prior to setting up CrowdCompass for integration.
Easier to use interface that directly links with our Cvent registration system. We switched due to this integration, the gamification improvements, the benefits for on-site check-in and session selections, and ease of design/use for our builder team. We have especially enjoyed the New Attendee experience over the look/interface of our previous apps
We have [switched] to league magic which is built for sports management.
works great no matter what type of program or how many people attending
Positive - CrowdCompass has allowed us to eliminate paper programs thus saving thousands of dollars in printing and laborPositive - the ability to send push notifications when there is a change to the schedule is something a paper program could never doPositive - adoption rates have been so high we are looking into using the program for more and more events
Our ROI has been totally positive with RegPack. While it is not the cheapest option on the market, it's $$ to quality is second to none. We have been particularly impressed with the level of assistance that we receive from their team—any and every question, query, doubt has been addressed, and a solution has been found.
