Cvent Event Management

[Cvent Event Management is] well suited [for] event registration, event registrant tracking, automated emails, reference IDs, and reporting. Less suited: Metric tracking- while you can use reference IDs you cannot adequately use UTMs with your events so it is difficult to see a campaign across the board if an event is a part of it.

This is an ideal program for any school or district looking for a way to monitor room and maintenance requests. The digital routing availability will help ease the burden of paper copies and make it quicker for everyone to use and submit their needs. Schools with a variety of staff members are best suited, especially since when submitting a request you can designate those that need to be involved and what specific needs you have from facility to technology.

Pros

Cvent Event Management

  • Complex event registrations with multiple attendee types

  • Clean interface
  • Email automation and filtering capabilities
  • Event registration links to contact record
  • Robust reporting, both standard and custom

  • You are able to designate whether you are submitting a maintenance request or a schedule request (for rooms).
  • You can set recurring schedules for areas or rooms you may need weekly or monthly to be requested on a set day or time.
  • SchoolDude autoroutes to the personnel you designate, taking out any physical paperwork involved.
  • You can see your history of requests (both maintenance and schedule) in the database.

Cons

Cvent Event Management

  • Connecting a contact record to Activity History or Transaction History results in a report instead of going directly to a list screen. It's difficult to transition from the report back to the original query.
  • Marking participants is a challenge as the participation function is not up-front.
  • It is difficult to track email addresses of people who have chosen to opt-out versus emails that have bounced and been automatically marked as opted-out.

  • The filter and ability to sort through your request history is a little difficult to navigate and can be glitchy if you are not sorting in the correct way.
  • There should be a quicker and simpler way to verify whether a room is booked prior to scheduling.
  • A cleaner, more simplistic look and navigation would go a long way.

It's the most fully encompassed, end-to-end event management platform we have been able to find. From sourcing to surveys, RFPs and ROI, Cvent really does do it all. Best of all, you get to pick what products you need, so you won't need to pay for anything you won't use

The overall usability of Cvent Event Management is extraordinary! Anyone taking a couple of minutes to just play around in the site can figure out the functions and successfully utilize the tools. In addition, there is a suite of help topics and videos for additional assistance.

It would have been nice during implementation if we had received more pointers on how to organize our parked report folders, libraries, etc. to avoid the mess we find ourselves in today. If we had known ahead of time the limitations we could have planned better.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Management

Our existing relationship with [Cvent Event Management] led us to stick with them when it came time to choose a virtual platform, and it certainly delivered and showed that it had the capability to be the polished, yet simple, platform that resonated best with our audience. The new virtual offering was still going through some growing pains when we used it, but it has the potential to be a major competitor in the virtual event space, and they're already well established in the in-person event management space.

This is the only program I have used for the facility, maintenance, technology, and room requests. However, there are programs that include similar features. Frontline Professional Growth is a platform that includes digital forms and routing similar to SchoolDude. But it is a vastly more in-depth program with features that go beyond what SchoolDude is often used for.
