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.

WizeHive Zengine

[WizeHive Zengine is] useful for creating custom applications, multiple users and keeping data distinct between the various users (applicants, references, directors and reviewers). But, it can be difficult to learn and isn't intuitive on how to set it up so the data is clean.

Pros

Cvent Abstract Management

  • Organize data/people
  • Reporting
  • Progress tracking
Loretta Beaty | TrustRadius Reviewer

WizeHive Zengine

  • It has made the application, which is almost identical to the application questions previously displayed by our old service, seem less daunting and more user friendly to grant applicants.
  • The grant review team has exclaimed that the side-by-side review option is the best feature ever invented and has saved them loads of paper.
  • Internally, I appreciate the ease of use of the back end system. Being able to easily assign grants to reviews both in and outside the organization, easily create queries for the stats I need, and the ability to move application through the steps of the system seamlessly make this my top choice since I'm the only staff member dedicated to the Foundation which leaves me with lots on my plate to balance.

Cons

Cvent Abstract Management

  • More affordable pricing tiers
  • More thorough FAQ/Self Help Center
  • More tutorials
Loretta Beaty | TrustRadius Reviewer

WizeHive Zengine

  • Initially, somewhat challenging to navigate the site and not the most intuitive when creating application portals.
  • Needs more help options and tutorials to make the user experience much easier and smoother.
  • Still some bugs that need to be fixed (including some issues with a few of the filters in application forms).

The platform is very basic. On the other and, our staff does not take advantage of its full capabilities because such features did not work well for us/fit our needs

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

We didn’t really use their support. I wish they would have told us more about the fact they were changing to get rid of the flash player as that was the main reason we left.

Their design team gave us the option to save some money by creating the forms ourselves for both the submission and review portals. This also allowed us to get to a point where we felt very comfortable in any future changes that would need to be made to forms since we were so immersed in creating them.

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.

WizeHive Zengine

Compared to these, Zengine is on par with each of them. All of them offer pretty much the same functionality, although a couple of the others have a more user-friendly interface. Zengine is on par with pricing as well, similar to all of these. The difference comes in when you need something not part of the standard package. Most of these will allow unlimited users, while Zengine only allows 30 I believe. If you need more than 30 (which we often do, as our team of grant reviewers consists of about 50 people), you will have to pay extra for them. You will also have to pay extra with Zengine if you're offering more than one grant, whereas the others allow you to offer anywhere from 5 different grants to an unlimited number of grants. This was key for us because, although we only offer one grant annually right now, this year we plan to offer a short (3-month) micro-grant dedicated to a specific group/category of schools. Zengine will charge us $1,500 additional to offer this short-term micro-grant, whereas the others will allow us to offer it at no additional charge.

WizeHive Zengine
