Cvent

This tool is bested used in planning out more intense set-up for events, or where you want to share with Vendors and Hotel Contacts where you would like certain items set-up in the room. I had previously used Meeting Matrix, and I appreciate the Collaboration access I can grant to vendors and contacts so they can help design the set-up based on them being the experts and knowing the space better

Whimsical

For planning purposes, ideation process and content organization in general, Whimsical is an awesome tool in our workflow. It can be used by management teams as well by Creative and Development. Also, if you need to explain a more complex idea or process, it's perfect since you can use visual tools to describe it better. It's very easy to use and has a great set of tools even on the free plan.

Pros

Cvent

  • User-friendly. It's easy for us to train other team members/staff/volunteers to use the front-end system for registration and event check-in.
  • Social Tables is great for creating custom room layouts and diagrams.
  • Social tables is customizable. We're able to capture specific information for attendees, and can "tag" them when additional info is needed.

Cons

Cvent

  • A development that would be useful would be the ability to reorder the diagrams to a custom order in one event so that when exported as one document, they are in an order that can be customized to flow well for the meeting planner.

Whimsical

  • It can be a little frustrating trying to line things up exactly right but that's probably more user error than anything

      Whimsical

      Whimsical is overall very easy to learn and remember. One issue with the usability occurs when you attempt to move connected boxes around the workspace. Frequently connections break or do not add easily, causing further disconnects. You can manually fix these issues, but it's a oprobem that seems would have an easy fix

      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 reached out to support, as I was interested in possibly investing in the organization, and they quickly and happily informed me they are a bootstrap organization and do not take on investors at this time. The swift response and information readily available for my consumption was extremely helpful and shows how solid the team behind it is.

      I believe my organization has evaluated Eventbrite in the past. I'm not too familiar with Eventbrite and if it is similar to Cvent Event Diagramming. Overall, Cvent Event Diagramming seems rather advanced and a unique type of software. We have had such a great experience with Cvent that we do not plan on switching anyways

      Whimsical

      Whimsical nails early stage project exploration. Whether it’s mapping, wire-framing, or simply whiteboard collaboration, Whimsical provide a flexible toolset that puts you and your team in the correct mindset to explore ideas without feeling committed to a specific direction. Giant projects do not have much impact on performance and copy/paste in between projects works without issue.

      Return on Investment

      Cvent

      • This program allows us to be nimble in our communication with our vendors and clients.
      • This program has empowered my new staff members to solve problems discreetly and on their own, prior to bringing them to my attention. It is a key tool to our success.

      Whimsical

      • We've been using free version, so it's a no brainer.
      • As it helps us focus on the information organization process, we don't lose time redoing work due to the lack of planning before doing design or code.
      • We can collaborate on the same project, so it's easier to get things done as we're working from home as well.
