Cvent Abstract Management

Cvent Abstract Management is very built out. There is a lot you CAN do with it, you just need to know how. Being a small organization, we don't get a lot of hands-on attention. It's a little complex for beginners, but once you start learning and understanding the system there is so much you can accomplish with it. I could spend 90% of my time on just understanding the software (which I don't have). If you have someone that can dedicate a big chunk of their time just on the system and building it out how it will work for your event, it is a fantastic solution.

Intrado GlobeNewswire

  • In some cases, it would not capture all coverage, for example, coverage found on trade websites.
  • Some of the incoming coverage would be repetitive or even delayed at times.

Support has been great! The chat feature is phenomenal and every agent I have talked to has gotten back to me instantly with a solution, or done a fantastic follow up on where a status of an issue is. I have been very impressed with the professional demeanor and help I have gotten from Cvent support. They are even available at odd hours of the night

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Abstract Management

Cvent is much more built out than other event management systems I have used previously. Eventbrite is a lot simpler and UX friendly. Cvent takes a lot more time to set up and get running, but can do SO much more. You can track things/customize the system however you like. Everything you want to do, can be done in Cvent.

Intrado GlobeNewswire

In 2016, I did an evaluation of other news distribution websites to see how they compared. While Marketwired has its flaws with customer service and a less-than-ideal online platform, it was far more cost-effective than the competitors. A lot of the competitors were more expensive and they also used cumbersome online platforms for distribution. Marketwired also doesn't charge for each image distributed with a release; many competitors do. After my evaluation, I decided to stick with Marketwired as the main wire our PR firm uses for distributing news

Intrado GlobeNewswire

  • Positive: We get a handful of contacts and leads from our press releases, but overall nothing else. Our clients like the to see press releases of our events that reach out to a wider net of the online audience too.
