Cvent Abstract Management

Preparing for conferences and gatherings is a demonstrated good use for this product. Similarly, other efforts that involve many moving pieces would be well-suited- projects with a number of different participants/authors, team retreats, and situations where there is a benefit to storing and organizing information in a decentralized way where no one person needs to bear that responsibility.

Submittable

A very useful software for the whole scholarship system, from the selection of the candidates to the delivery of the payment. I recommend it 100% because it has helped us enormously and we have been able to achieve that many more people can apply for scholarships, because it is a software that responds efficiently.

Cons

Cvent Abstract Management

  • More affordable pricing tiers

  • More tutorials

Submittable

  • Labels shouldn't be an option for all reviewers, we had a reviewer for our Florida applicants create labels like "1" "2" "3" which confused my reviewers in California.
  • Running reports across multiple grant projects is tedious and clumsy. Our grant project had 15 regions but it was the same application, we had to compare applications across regions, but could only have a set amount of winners for each area. It would've been easier to create 1 application and 1 opportunity but have filters for the # of applications for each region instead of creating 15 separate applications.
  • Reviewers also found the review forms difficult. There should be an easier way to run a report on their pending reviews in an excel format, or just a better functionality to review. Even with onboarding, our reviewers were confused and didn't use the review function.

I don't see how we could continue to operate our program without Submittable. It is also the industry standard - our submitters are used to and familiar with the platform. We put a lot of work into transitioning from a mail-in submission model to a Submittable-supported one and it just wouldn't make sense to "go back."

I think that the whole system is super intuitive. The onboarding was great and gave me all of the tools I now need to update/change, etc, my review process. I've rarely had to ask the Submittable support team for help because everything is super easy to understand. We have also received many comments on how easy the system is to use on the application and reviewer side of things.

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

I think that they are good at answering our questions and solving our problems. We occasionally get reports from applicants about problems the Submittable team has not solved, but I do not know what the applicant has done to get the problem solved.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Abstract Management

We have mainly focused on Cvent products. They are the leader in their industry and their products are top-notch. We knew we wanted to add more Cvent software to our portfolio so they are all we chose to consider this time around. We are very pleased with our decision.

Submittable

Foundant is excellent for grants management for organizations, but not as strong as Submittable when it comes to programs for individual applicants. Submittable pricing is really competitive and what you get for the cost, makes it a winner against other systems that may be more customizable. And note that if you have a lot of customization, you might need dedicated people to maintain it and train others, while Submittable is easy to understand "out of the box."

Return on Investment

Cvent Abstract Management

  • This has allowed us to do things that would have been impossible without.
  • Cvent effectively fades into the background of the work itself, it’s simplicity makes itself “invisible."
  • We know we can always rely on the product support team.

Submittable

  • The Submittable platform has saved us countless hours in legwork, creating databases and spreadsheets for tracking purposes. We haven't had to do any of those things this year. It's a huge timesaver as well, in that it communicates for you. It sends area-specific e-mail communications to everyone involved (applicants, reviewers, site visitors, etc.), and compiles all incoming communications into one mailbox that we can easily go to and get a quick read on incoming comms. So I would say time saved is the most significant positive impact we've seen with using Submittable.
