What is the best software for event management?

Many teams that manage events and look after a portfolio of sponsorship assets still use spreadsheets and emails to keep track of event information, guests and ticket allocations. When event teams outgrow this approach, putting software for event management in place becomes essential. In this article, we look at why we believe Eventrax has all the essential ingredients you need...

WHY DO YOU NEED EVENT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE?

 

Running a small events team using spreadsheets and email is perfectly fine. It gives you flexibility because it means you can adapt your approach to suit the needs of new hospitality events, company events and sponsorship assets quickly and easily.

But spreadsheets and emails are notoriously inefficient as your event portfolio and team start to grow. Emails are constantly flying back and forth between colleagues and then need chasing up multiple times. Nobody in the team has full visibility of ticket allocations, invitations, RSVPs or confirmations. Reporting is difficult and the data you’re working with is often out-of-date. All of this inefficiency is costly – how much time do you waste running every event as a result of it?

Event teams experiencing these sorts of challenges need to put software and processes in place to reduce their growing inefficiency.

 

WHAT DOES THE SOFTWARE NEED TO DO?

 

The best software for event management will do the following things:

  • Manage your entire event and sponsorship inventory in one place. You and your team should be able to see the status of every event and asset you own at the click of a button. No more spreadsheets!
  • Make the booking process as simple as possible. Every aspect of the booking process should be managed through the system, including internal approvals for ticket allocations, event dates and availability. No more back and forth chasing colleagues via email.
  • Provide a full invitation and confirmation process. Guests should be invited through the platform, be able to confirm attendance and find out more information without a single email being sent.
  • Give you detailed, real-time reporting. You should be able to find out everything you need to know about every one of your events because it’s all held in one system. Event reports, guest reports, expenditure reports and ROI reports should all be easily accessible.
