Cvent Social Tables

We use Social Tables for all networking events as a way to track attendance. While some events are simpler and require less customization, there is still value in keeping check-in digital (especially in the eco-conscious and safety-focused time we live in!). The platform is especially important for signature events with table assignments/meal specifications/VIP attendees, etc.

Whimsical

Best suited for mind-mapping exercises. I use it with my clients to build out new processes and org charts. There are so many departments that can benefit from the product: HR, IT, Customer Service, Design, etc. The only challenge is how the individual would like to utilize it. I don't know that it's best as a board for notes and ideas. It would be a little difficult to codify with the platform.

Pros

Cvent Social Tables

  • Great user interface: seamless, aesthetically pleasing, and high functionality design.
  • Well developed features: the developers of the software clearly understand event planning and conference centers, as made evident by the rich inventory of equipment/features to add to floor plans and the tools provided to communicate and track space needs, i.e. easy to use and interpret dimension lines to ensure proper aisle-ways, etc..
  • Strong Event/Floor Plan Database: well thought out interface organizing facility rooms and events.
  • Seamless, simple, quick process for uploading space designs: simply provide a blueprint or CAD file and they can get the space created as a floor plan in no time.

Cons

Cvent Social Tables

  • Improving service perimeter so that we can export multiple diagrams as one document rather than as individual PDFs. Currently because of the service perimeter settings, when we try to utilize the 'Export All' function, each diagram prints extremely small on the page.
  • I would like to be able to save specific colors as favorites. I tend to color code the items on a diagram (all AV in orange, all F&B in light blue, all items clients are providing in yellow, etc.). Currently, if I want to use a specific shade of a color, I have to select a currently shaded item and copy/paste the color code. Makes for extra steps in an otherwise quick process.

  • The ability to share is a bit lacking (you can only share the link if the document is public).
  • Would be great if we had the ability to make the notes smaller.

The support was exceptional, and they remained an arm's reach away for when we ran into any questions after we began using the tool. Overall, we experienced phenomenal customer service. We also had more than one web-based call where their team would walk us through examples and answer any questions we had.

I've never needed to use Whimsical's customer support. I've been able to intuitively find answers to any questions about using the app. The tool is completely intuitive. I'm annoyed that I'm still typing and that this question is required even though it's not applicable to my use of the application

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Social Tables

A2Z Floor Plan Developer is similar to Cvent Social Tables, but I think Social Tables is a bit more interactive. There are more options than just building a floor plan, you can actually assign sponsors, build the AV portion of the event, and color code the floor which is very valuable.

Whimsical

Whimsical has a flexible interface and a more cost-friendly plan than Lucidchart. Whimsical allows you all the room to create whatever comes to mind in one space, whereas with other products, you have to create a separate document to use the different functions. Other apps like MindMapper are singular in objective, leaving users unable to really choose the tools they need in one space. Whimsical creates a playground for ideas to flourish.
