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.

If you are looking for a software that let's you create online forms seamlessly and also minimizes your company's work flow then this is the correct way to go. It has allowed us to get accurate response and also has helped us save enough time compared to when we're still using other softwares.

Cons
Cvent
  • Some of the custom widgets have caused the wrong information to copy over.
  • Some of the speaker information was linking across submissions.
  • If the same submitter made more than 1 submission, the information got switched.

  • An average administration may not have the technical capabilities to adapt and shape it for themselves. While SurveyMonkey Apply has an option for tech support for a price, it is not something always easy for the admin.
  • There is no way to cross reference users by Social Security Number or other identifier. In other words, a single applicant with multiple email addresses could potentially apply and receive benefits as the users are tied to email address not email address and SSN.

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

This was already in place when I started at my organization. Because I can import or transfer the speaker info into the event management side, it’s a great option. The other two software work too but I’d have to import their info into the system instead of it being there already

We think that Submittable is the top platform available and will continue to use it for our clients. The start-to-finish platform makes our workflow smarter and more efficient, leading to better decisions and bigger impact. We are always looking for new programs and when we landed on Submittable, we were sold.

Return on Investment
Cvent
  • Our client has used Cvent Abstract Management for two years now. They saw almost a 50% increase in abstract submissions year over year.
  • While the product has saved the client time in sending acceptance/rejection notices and scheduling abstracts to their event, the output of the reporting has still been an issue; a lot of manual adjusting has to take place with the data for them to utilize it properly.

  • Positive Impact: allowed us to move to a more virtual office, just in time for COVID's forcing all to work from home/remotely.
  • Negative Impact: made it much harder to capture all data we need to merge with all applicants since organization created.
