Cvent Event Management

Cvent [Event Management] allows us to do our jobs in one tool, which is huge! We can do everything in one platform. When you have a questions about functionality or changes, there is an entire community that is available to walk you through any process or problem you are having. They give you the ability to ask any question and get simple answers in return that you will understand. Cvent really is a true "community" of users that are there for each other!

It's definitely more useful for one of the following: 1) a single event where people can sign up for different jobs and time slots to volunteer or work, or 2) a continuous calendar of signups for things like intake meetings, routine overtime tasks workers can opt to work, etc. If you only need a couple of people per week to be able to sign up for something, it's probably not worth the set up and short but routine maintenance of adding and deleting dates and times for purpose #2 above

Cons

Cvent Event Management

  • The badge designer is a little clunky and difficult to use.
  • I’d love to see their add-on modules priced differently (flat fees vs. per registration)
  • They’re membership module is only for individual memberships, we have organization based memberships, so we’re not able to use it.

  • I think an area that needs improvement is allowing for more than 5 slots at a time. I would like to see at least 10 offered instead of having to keep adding 5 at a time.
  • Adding additional templates or templates in which you can just change a color selection would be great. Really utilize this for school PTO/Booster Clubs would be beneficial. Cater to them.
  • Allowing for a 'cheaper' price than what you have for the souped up version would be nice as well.

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.

Our account management team has been very supportive and helpful from the start to many years into implementation. They are in constant contact with our builders and our admins about new features, trainings, and solutions to issue which arise especially in integrating with other systems or with developing alternative models

I don't have any feedback for support because I have not had to use support (if referring to IT support). If this question is in referral to support from other staff/company, then it has been received well in that sense.

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

I have not used another event planning software and am not able to compare them accurately. I have done most of my event planning manually or as a team. Cvent Event Management helps streamline a lot of the process if you are working on a team because everyone who has access to the account can see what information has already been done and it will not be accidentally duplicated.

I know of Eventbrite and how you can use it to promote an event. My event was for families and kids. The event was also free. Eventbrite I could have used for this but it did not have the abilities like SignUpGenius for me to organize and stay in contact with my community and volunteers. Both are free but Eventbrite didn't have the functionality I needed. Also it isn't used in my area of these activities to gather people

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

SignUpGenius

  • Gives you way more time! The site reminds people of what's going on and where to be and what to bring, so you don't have to run around like a crazy person and do all this emailing and calling to make sure people remember.
