Cvent gets the registration job done and is user friendly.

Pros

I like that I can send invites to all my attendees at once, but can divide them into different registration paths depending on what info needs to be provided to a particular group. I do have some challenges occasionally trying to figure out how to make something work while building a website, which is the reason for the 4 stars for the Ease of Use

Cons

Customer service. When I call the help line it sometimes takes several times to explain what issue I'm having because the rep doesn't seem to understand what I'm trying to do. I think that these are new representatives and aren't as experienced. Also when I use the chat box I'm not always sure someone is still there because of the delay in their responding to questions.

Great Tool for Event builders and planners!

1. Resolve potential last minute issues that may arise onsite 2. Staff has been very productive and prepared to manage attendees 3. Provide enough metrics for admins 4. Easy to adopt by non-technical users

Pros

1. Interactive Features with Crowdcompass that customize the user experiences and engagement in an effective way. It has really helped us with onsite preparedness. 2. Cloning events or creating templates to re-use and make adjustments that saves time 3. CRM integration options have allowed us to have 360 degree customer view across CRM and Cvent. We have also used SSO to link our existing users account at registration websites. 4. Flex events 5. Ability to integrate with supplier network and survey tools

Cons

1.Ways to manage field permissions for users/roles (edit/delete/update) 2.Enforce field validations on account/organization level so that we can maintain data integrity and event planners cannot customize anything and everything at event level 3. 2 way sync through standard integration is not dynamic for custom fields 4. If salesforce has person account enabled, not business account, cvent has no way to accommodate that on contact level during integration. 5. API limit of 10000 is very less for large events

Reasons for Switching to Cvent Event Management

It was complex and not easy to be adopted by non-technical users.

CVENT, Worth the Money

Overall it's been great. Cvent is worth the money, but I do see why many organizations can't afford it.

Pros

I really like the ease of Cvent and the customer support. I feel I can always get support when I need and the new FLEX path is pretty intuitive. The perks of being a member of Cvent Celebrity are also awesome. The online trainings are great for busy schedules.

Cons

While I love the customer support, I wish there was a better way to talk to the representative you spoke to prior with issues. Everyone is GREAT, but I often find I'm reinventing the wheel. While this is a negative, it is also a positive as I was able to determine alternative solutions to my problems...thus giving more options to fix a problem

Reasons for Choosing Cvent Event Management

Overall the product demo and the demo team sold us on Cvent.

Complicated System with Missing Functionality

Overall, I have been very disappointed in the service. Not easy to learn and Cvent should not have released a new version with very basic and essential capabilities missing.

Pros

Cvent is nice in that it has thought of many of the different scenarios planners need to communicate, offer registration for and track for each event. The integrated credit card processing makes handling the financial aspect of meetings much easier.

Cons

This software is extremely difficult to learn and use. Cvent is also switching from a legacy system to a new one. If you use the legacy system, not only are you wasting your time learning a system that will be eliminated, but your events will disappear after the change as they can't be transferred. Yet the new system is missing very essential functionality making its use very limited. None of this was clearly communicated during the sales process. The app feature is very overpriced and extremely limited in its capabilities. Also, the system is not a full life-cycle system. There are no features to help centralize the actual planning of the event - it does have RFP and budgeting features, as well as registration, but completely ignores room set, a/v programming, etc. Doesn't eliminate having other documents and spreadsheets outside of the system for organizing events. So, I would not consider it an "event management" system.

Reasons for Choosing Cvent Event Management

Bizzabo noted it was not capable of both pushing and pulling information from our CMS.

Customer Service is unparalleled!!

I have used a couple different tools and Cvent is bar far the most robust. You get a lot of bang for your buck - in my opinion it's worth every penny.

Pros

Their customer service team is unreal - I have never had such prompt connection or assistance from ANY software...ever! While some of the functionality isn't intuitive, the Cvent team takes the time to drill down to where you are having trouble, walks you through the solution and then...checks back up to make sure it all worked out for you! THE BEST!

Cons

Roadmap progress is slow ... features take a while to launch...

Reasons for Choosing Cvent Event Management

More features, company has been in the market a lot longer and it's hard to beat their customer support
