This is a great program that we have been using for 5 years and will hopefully continue to work with them in years to come. We are even looking into using their event app for our next big conference.

Pros

We do a lot of meetings throughout the year, and Cvent is the quickest way that we hear back from hotels. I usually can get a response from all the hotels within a week. I also like to use Cvent for Event Registration. It is a great program to keep track of attendees.

Cons

The only problem is that when creating your Event Registration there is not a lot of flexibility for sub questions that need to be answered when attendees are registering.

Enhanced features allow for tailored registration processes that reduce manual work for our event planners while also giving them access to crucial data.

Pros

Cvent's support is AMAZING. When in doubt, their support materials are easy to search through and contain straightforward information. Moreover, their customer support team is alway kind and incredibly knowledgable.

Cons

The tool can be tough to learn. Unless you are working in Cvent on a regular basis, it can be difficult to navigate. This makes it tricky for some basic users to adopt. Once they get the swing of it, though, they are off and running.

Better auditing material, better knowledge of our attendees with surveys and reg. questions and also overall better management of our events.

Pros

I love the customer service piece of the software because it is so verstile and like no other customer service I have ever experienced. I also love the endless capabilities you have and are able to achieve with ease. The reporting system is amazing, love the new reports also.

Cons

Some areas of the software can be a little difficult to manipulate, sometimes edits to the website or emails take some time to come through or can cause some challenges.

Streamlining of processes; we no longer need to track housing, registration, biographies, and photos separately. Everything is stored in one list for each event, which is very helpful! We've also been able to customize the look of our name badges; they look more polished!

Pros

I like how you can make each event customized; there are endless ways to change the look and feel of the website.

Cons

I don't have any cons per se...if I had more training I would know the system better. Depending on the issue I'm having, it's taken customer service an average of 30 - 40 minutes to resolve my issue. However, they are thorough and do a fantastic job!

The option to have different registration paths to customize attendee experience. The customer support I receive is always great.

Cons

User friendliness. I don't quite understand the efficiency of having the "admin" page, as many of the features that need to be changed (reports, test users, etc.) would be more time efficient if you could edit that data from the main page.

That it is robust and flexible, you can accomplish so much with this tool. You can handle complex registrations with multiple paths or quickly get a small event registration out. Also the workflow capabilities are great for strategic meetings management programs.

Cons

Nothing really, would love to be able to do more in it though to help consolidate more processes. Also the CSS editing can get a bit wonky here and there.

Event organization. Can't see us using any other software :)

Pros

Cvent helped us a lot with the event management. We have been using Cvent since 2008 and don't have any complaints. Customer service is exceptional.

Cons

It is a little bit difficult to navigate for new users, but when you document the steps and use it on a regular basis, it get's easier.

DATA! We get so much data that influences the work we do.

Pros

Flexibility in the registration process! I'm able to customize our registration to meet our unique needs, ensure folks only see what they should see, and gather the data we need to prepare for the event.

Cons

There is a learning curve. I hear they are working on updates, so I'm excited to see the new user interface.

The depth it has - previous softwares couldn't meet complex needs, but on Cvent I've made improvements to my registration process that I didn't even know I needed to.

I can do everything in one place. I can send out RFPs, collect proposals, award contracts, then transfer that information into my event website.

Pros

The e-RFP tool can send out multiple RFPs at once and pull a report with everything I need. The Event Management tool allows me to completely control my event; from booking the travel to collecting special requests to pulling together custom reports.

Cons

The current event management module does not connect well with the travel portion. I find myself calling support or creating my own work around because the two system do not integrate.

Pros

Cvent is easy to use and navigate. The ability to copy and paste, add attachments and really sell on this tool is key.

Sometimes we are not allowed to retract a turndown and have to go to the client for them to resend and then follow up to get this done.

They are numerous: ease of use, easy to manage, helpful to our clients, etc!

Pros

With the software, it makes event management easy to do. Our team has learned it on our own with minor help from customer support, who has always been extremely patient and easy to work with. The software itself is highly intuitive and walks you through the process step-by-step. The most beautiful thing, in my opinion, about Cvent is that the constantly are taking feedback from us all and improving the products more and more every day. It excites me to work with them!

Cons

The only issue I had was the initial set-up but that was because we did not pay for the additional training and they switched to Blue while we were building our first event, which made everything simple and easy to do.
