CrowdCompass is a versatile app that is widely used by event attendees to access schedules, event information, and communicate with organizers. Users have reported that the app offers a unique and interactive experience, making networking more enjoyable at events. The advanced functionalities and mission-critical security components of CrowdCompass have made it a preferred choice for Siemens AG and its subdivisions. One of the key benefits of the app is its ability to easily download and load event information across various platforms, making it convenient for users.

The use cases of CrowdCompass are extensive, ranging from regional to global events. It provides valuable information on schedules, sessions, handouts, event communications, and even social media engagement. The app supports gamification features, custom content creation, and personalized schedules for specific groups. This has proven to be particularly useful for small events management departments, as it enhances their efficiency and enables effective communication with attendees.

CrowdCompass has addressed several common problems faced by event organizers. Its ability to eliminate the need for printing handouts not only helps reduce costs but also promotes environmental consciousness. Additionally, the app generates additional revenue through banner ad sales while providing trackable attendee engagement data. For large conferences and events in the travel incentive industry, CrowdCompass has successfully tackled on-site communication challenges by offering personalized schedules and push notifications.

Integration with Cvent SMM has been a significant advantage for many users, as it saves time and provides real-time updates and changes during events. The software seamlessly integrates with other registration sites as well, making it simpler for organizers to provide a better experience for attendees. Furthermore, CrowdCompass serves as the main source of event information for annual user meetings and conferences, eliminating the need for printed materials.

Overall, users appreciate the value that CrowdCompass brings to their events by providing a clean and usable mobile app experience for any size event. Its features such as delegate lists, agendas, notifications, and maps have proven to be highly valuable for managing events and providing information to attendees. Push notifications are particularly appreciated as they enable timely updates and important announcements during events. While there may be room for improvement in terms of the app's interface, users express overall satisfaction with CrowdCompass and its contribution to enhancing the event experience.

Based on user reviews, the most common recommendations for CrowdCompass are to customize the app to meet specific needs, consider integration with Cvent for seamless registration and unique content, and explore alternative vendors for additional features.

Users highly advise becoming familiar with CrowdCompass settings and taking the time to learn all of its features. They recommend customizing the app to meet specific event requirements and being patient during the initial setup.

For events that integrate with Cvent registration and require tailored content, users highly recommend using CrowdCompass. They also suggest using CrowdCompass for events that don't need frequent changes in Cvent. Easy integration with Cvent and GDPR compliance are prioritized.

While users appreciate CrowdCompass for its event engagement, connectivity, and cost-saving benefits, some suggest exploring alternatives that offer more gamification and connection options. They encourage comparing CrowdCompass with other event smartphone/tablet apps and considering data export requirements.

In summary, users recommend trying CrowdCompass for instant communication, meeting evaluation/surveys, event engagement, connectivity, cost-saving benefits, and organizing large corporate events. They highlight the importance of customization, integration with Cvent, and considering alternative vendors if specific features are needed.

We use CrowdCompass with our client events. Our attendees can use the app to access documents, maps and their agenda. We occasionally use the gamification, but most of our meetings are corporate meetings and they do not have the time to play the game.
  • The appearance of the app is very professional.
  • Easy to access information in the app with easy to set up design.
  • The map feature is important to us.
  • Would like to be able to switch between app home page designs after the event is set up in case I want to change my mind. Currently, have to delete the entire event and start over.
  • Do not always want to use the game feature and there's no way to fully turn it off.
CrowdCompass is a must-have for all events and meetings. It's an easy way for attendees to find their schedules, register for other open sessions, and a great way to send them notifications during the event.
  • We are able to collect registrations much faster.
  • We save on printing schedules.
None at this time.
They helped us set up our own branded app in the Apple app store and Google Play store. It was a smooth and easy process.

When we were in the process of setting up our app, Cvent was in touch the entire process and made sure the experience was running on time.
  • Connecting through the API is very easy - the events, speakers and sessions pulled in nicely
  • Setting up the maps is fun
  • Changing the gamification settings. We don't want to use it and there's no "off" button.
Yes
Perfectly. It is designed professionally and we didn't need to do too much to get the design set up.
Very easy to use and set up.

We use CrowdCompass at our flagship events such as our annual conference. The app has really helped us to streamline communication and distribution of materials for attendees, increased attendee engagement through live polling, live Q&A, gamification and enhanced networking capabilities and helped us to reach our goal of going paperless at these events.
  • The app is easy to navigate and set up so it does not require a lot of time and training to implement.
  • Includes all of the features you need such as live polling, live Q&A, surveys, gamification, attendee messaging and contact sharing, etc., which has had a significant effect on attendee engagement at our flagship events.
  • As a leader in the events industry, Cvent is always introducing new updates and features to stay up to date with the latest technology and trends in the market.
  • It is fairly expensive and you pay per event so it isn’t feasible for us to be able to use at our smaller scale events.
  • Login process can be a little confusing and requires several steps but they have made improvements to this process.
Well suited for large conferences, trade shows or multi-day events. It is great for encouraging attendee engagement through features such as live polling, live Q&A, gamification, social wall, etc. and it is great for networking as it allows attendees to send 1:1 messages to each other, schedule appointments and exchange contact details directly through the app. It is not well suited for smaller scale events due to the cost.
  • Increased attendee engagement at our flagship events
  • Reduced printing costs by allowing us to include documents and presentations directly in the app
  • Increased networking amongst attendees
  • Increased attendee satisfaction and feedback
We have not used another event app

CrowdCompass is pretty user friendly so it was easy to train staff members to use, but having a standard template to use for all events is helpful in making sure things are consistent when you have multiple users creating events and uploading content across different regions
  • Helps increase attendee engagement before, during and after events
  • Makes it easy to distribute materials to attendees and saves on printing costs
  • Increases networking opportunities
  • Makes sessions more interactive
  • Live polling through the app has become a big part of our events and allows attendees to participate in the discussions
  • We use push notifications to help notify attendees of important details and direct them to the next sessions
  • The activity feed in the app has been a great tool for increasing attendee engagement and interaction and encourages them to post about the event on social media
  • Session Scanning
  • Social Wall
  • Integration with event registration platform
  • Beacon alerts
We have been using CrowdCompass for 3 years and it has all of the capabilities and functionality that we need, it's easy to use, and Cvent is always implementing new features and enhancements to keep up with the latest trends and technology.

Our project manager checks in with me before every event even though I don't typically need any support and they follow up after the event to highlight some key metrics from the event.
I always receive immediate help when I reach out to their customer support and they are great at keeping me updated on the status of any issues that require further investigation.

We use CrowdCompass for our internal annual conference. It is used by all attendees, and it addresses the need for improved communication during a large event and helps reduce printing costs. In addition, having an event app provides attendees with a unique, interactive experience that is fun, engaging and perfect for networking.
  • Easy to setup/build and maintain
  • Provides unique and engaging features such as gamification, live polls, and social sharing
  • Good reporting tools for capturing survey feedback and attendee engagement
  • Additional features to drive engagement, such as customizable games
  • Social sharing features are good, but could be made simpler to get more folks engaged. Would also be great to have Instagram
  • Even more robust reporting and analytics
Highly recommended for any event, regardless of size. It was particularly well suited for providing detailed event information to attendees, and giving them the chance to socialize, network, and immerse themselves in the event experience. As an event app, I can't think of scenarios where it is "less appropriate" during an event, it serves its purpose well.
  • Ability to track attendee engagement in sessions, event activities
  • Helped cut printing costs
  • Attendee feedback is positive, adds an element of fun and engagement
Our first choice was CrowdCompass, and we will likely stick with it. It is the best in class for event mobile apps, provides very user friendly build capabilities, and easy to drive adoption. The fact that it integrates well with our registration website and onsite registration is a huge plus as well, cuts down tremendously on time, effort and cost.

The app was used by all of our attendees at our annual conference.

One person is responsible for the build, design and implementation of the app - really don't need more than that! While it is an easy to use app, it is recommended that the point person be comfortable working with new technology (basic tech skills are enough) but also have good project management skills. There are a lot of moving pieces to manage and strict deadlines that need to be kept up with
  • Provide event information to conference attendees
  • Encourage greater interaction and engagement from attendees to improve conference experience
  • Provide insight and data on event
  • Social sharing
  • Communication tool for key event-related initiatives
  • Used to support other event activities (ex. linked to external website for silent auction)
  • For other large scale events
  • Drive engagement pre-event
We are happy with the product and the seamless integration with other Cvent products we use.

During our event, we had an issue with one of the features of the app. I called support late at night, they worked through the wee hours of the morning and got back to me with an answer quickly.
  • App design
  • Setting up surveys, games, etc.
  • Build site is intuitive and easy, support is fantastic as well
  • Maps feature can be tricky if you have multiple locations to chart
  • The verification code process is easy, but it seemed like anytime a person logged out they had to go through the process again
  • The data and reporting tools
Yes
The primary function of the app is the Mobile UI. It is easy to build and customize for an event, and the ability to add engagement features like gamification and in-depth event info (schedules, maps, speakers, etc.). As a user, its intuitive and easy to navigate, not much learning required
From the build perspective, its very simple and intuitive. You can either go basic or dig in and provide some interesting features and functions to provide a well-rounded event app experience. From the user perspective, its easy to use and navigate the app, plus the ability to interact and engage is a huge bonus
