Cvent Event Management

Well suited:1. Quick or complex Registration pages for any event, conference or webcast for 10+ attendees allowing for details and confirmations to be presented and details sent 2. Allow for notifications to hold dates for upcoming events 3. Allow for a temperature check in the form of a survey of a group for making decisions, checking needs, etc. (open or blind send) Not as suited:1. Trying to make the wrong Cvent tool for the job at hand. (example, using standard flex registration tool for one on one appointments instead of the appointment tool)

OneCause

OneCause has worked great for our organization in managing special events and fundraisers. It is a great tool to organize event logistics and a great way to organize the auction components. OneCause has helped us simply plan for our fundraising gala. Aside from this, my department has not utilized OneCause in any other way.

Pros

Cvent Event Management

  • Complex event registrations with multiple attendee types
  • Widget-based event website and email builder makes marketing quick and easy, especially for users without HTML/CSS knowledge; HTML widget allows for customization for those who want to fine-tune
  • Plenty of custom fields allowed in contact records
  • Clean interface
  • Email automation and filtering capabilities
  • Event registration links to contact record
  • Robust reporting, both standard and custom
  • Responsive and helpful customer service/tech support available via chat

OneCause

  • OneCause keeps you organized and on top of details big and small. The checklist feature is hugely helpful and having an individual working on your event with you to point out things you may have missed or not realized you needed is a huge benefit.
  • The accounting post-event is sorted in a variety of ways making it easy to find [the] info you're looking for like breaking down specific donor traits.
  • Including ways to market and communicate for the event is vital for success. You can preschedule and customize messages to specific groups right in the platform so it's tracked and event-specific. I love the functionality and ease that provides!

Cons

Cvent Event Management

  • Feedback Cross-Event Reporting: I would love to see [Cvent Event Management] add event feedback survey reporting to the cross-event reports. I spend a good amount of time collecting this data manually and manipulating it for a full year of events.
  • OnArrival Application Login: If you make an error logging in 3 times in a row, it locks you out for a good chunk of time. Would like a two-dept verification to avoid.
  • Networking: Before covid, we used to have a good amount of in-person networking opportunities for [Cvent Event Management] users that were free- now it is really only [Cvent] connect for face-to-face events it seems?
Hannah Humke | TrustRadius Reviewer

OneCause

  • larger photos for items in an auction/ different page layout so its easier to see and click into each item.
  • more integrations- less manual work
  • easier user interface- sometimes very clunky and hard to navigate through
  • ability to connect donors and winning bidders directly through the platform

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

It is ultimately not my call, and we are switching Donor CRMs/fundraising platforms so not sure what that will mean for OneCause.

It does take some time to learn the system and the help articles are not always up to date, but it is also fairly intuitive and once you learn the basics, you can do very complex things without having to learn complex procedures.

The customer service and help center is extremely helpful. I cannot give enough accolades about how easy it is to get advice or help on any aspect of their products. The systems themselves are very user friendly and easy to navigate. They also provided us with extensive training and guidance when we were first time users

I have very rarely needed support, but when I did, it seemed that there was an underlying push for a webinar, training session, or multiple phone calls. If I have a question or a need, that should be addressed nothing else.

Live customer service can be a little bit difficult to reach which can increase stress under certain circumstances but overall customer support is excellent their knowledgeable friendly and very helpful and they do their best to respond to customer requests for support timely and appropriately. I think overall support deserves a high rating.

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.

I don't know if my insights are key but I can say that implementation was done in-house without any outside support for the solution. The staff influencing the solution had very little technical expertise and ability as well which showed just how easily the software was to implement.

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.
John Voegtlin | TrustRadius Reviewer

OneCause

The biggest draw for us was OneCause's silent auction offering. We had been doing silent auctions on paper for the last four years and we were looking to update our process and draw in more bids with added convenience. OneCause was able to create a one-stop-shop for us where we could have all of our Gala offerings in a central location.

Return on Investment

Cvent Event Management

  • It allows us to be ahead of our competitors who do not use Cvent - we have a lot more capabilities using Cvent Event Management.
  • It allows for a more streamlined internal planning process with little room for variations from planner to planner.
Madison Spears | TrustRadius Reviewer

OneCause

  • I am able to reach many more donors via our online auction than at an in-person event.
  • Closing out an auction and collecting payment is infinitely easier than running an auction on paper.
  • Guests enter all their own information including credit cards making it very easy to manage the event as a single event director.
