    Useful event management system

    Pros

    I find Arlo fairly straightforward and smooth to use and obtain information or add data to an event.

    Cons

    When searching for a series of events, once you click on one and leave, you are taken back to the menu page and have to start the search again, which can be frustrating.

    Pros

    We have only started using this package recently and have found it very easy to use, much clearer to see customers and course than our previous package.

    Cons

    I haven't come across any issues so far, it would be handy to have the ability to add more users that can see but not change information, ie sales reps.

    LMS Integration and improved training/event registration management over what our LMS can do.

    Pros

    The seamless integration with our LMS (Moodle/Totara has been a massive resource to advance our training and development programs.

    Cons

    While it has the ability to store many templates for design, and delivery of your programs, it could benefit from the addition of some more in the areas of invoicing and communications.

    Pros

    Arlo is very easy to use and the team is always on hand to help should we have any questions or additional changes we would like to make to our personalised system. Some team members have taken the time to come and give us presentations on how to get the best out of the system which was really helpful. Arlo is a great way for us to upload and keep track of our events. The reporting section is especially helpful for running data analysis. The database is extremely helpful for storing details about centres - the full details of the school will populate from just a centre number. Overall, the system has been great and I would definitely recommend for anyone who is thinking of using it.

    Cons

    You cannot change the event code once the event has been approved - this means you have to cancel the event and create a new one if there are any changes.

    This software helps us add and track events

    Pros

    Easy to use, when setting up events, we can add one event as a template and just change information for each following event

    Cons

    At the end of each event, you have to go in and add who attended, I'm not sure how this could be simplified though

    Cons

    * A bit slow to reload all events. * Sometimes events list does not refresh at all. * Need a wider screen to view everything at one page.

    Too much software to choose from! We are trying to streamline our business and sometimes there is too much choice.

    phenomenal! best platform I have found for efficient, intuitive course scheduling, in-platform communication through skype, and other functionality tools. event management is so much more streamlined

    Cons

    so far, I actually havent run into any major issues. one thing that might be improved is the export of reports into csv/spreadsheet form, and then maybe the speed of customer support

    The ability to train delivery partners quickly and efficiently.

    Pros

    Scheduling of courses is extremely quick due to using templates. It's an easy platform to train others how to use, I often Skype our partners and share my screen.

    Cons

    There's not much to not like, in fact I haven't any real issues at all. I occasionally find running reports a little frustrating but I'd say that's a 'user' issue rather than platform issue.

    I like arlo because of ease of use and functionality. It catches everything on recording & never misses a beat.

    Unfortunately, Arlo's battery life is very short with alot of movement. Other than that, not many other issues.

    Absolutely recommend ARLO for event management. The team have been super helpful and all the inclusions have been delivered so that my workload has been streamlined. So happy!!

    Pros

    Integration with other systems and automation features. It sends emails to waiting list clients with one easy step, also raises invoices in my accounting system which was my initial interest in ARLO, so all the rest is such a bonus!

    Cons

    I have yet to be able to integrate Moodle, I guess that is a slight drawback as I didn't realise it is not compatible with cloud bases Moodle systems.

    Less paperwork, more organising tools, and better tracking of events organised and held. Ease of use for the registrants for events. A great management tool for the whole process including reporting requirements

    Pros

    Lack of extra paperwork required to be done by administration, ease of use for the registrants who can now manage their own registrations and information

    Cons

    The CSV output file is messy and very limiting. I have to spend more time on tidying up to meet the requirements for accounts/reporting.

    The best event management software

    Functionality
    Quality
    Support

    Using arlo has meant that we've consolidated all of our payment methods into one platform, eliminated multiple spreadsheets recording attendees and also eliminated the possibility for human error at our end - if someone isn't registered for an event, they didn't register, it's not that they emailed us and didn't make it to the spreadsheet!

    Pros

    The best things are the payment platform, the app for my mobile when I am at an event - so easy to record attendance or grab an attendees number to check in on them if they haven't arrived. Arlo has eliminated human error at our end - now we know if a registration is wrong that it was entered incorrectly by the client, not someone at our end!

    Cons

    We used to use quite a complicated discount structure for multiple attendees, this has been hard to translate into arlo, but we have identified a work around - it just took a bit of time to implement.

    Online support isn't great probably because of terminology, but we do love the live support, always helpful and answer any questions we have.
