Event Management Software

Have I told you that we are in the process of building our own event management software? It’s been a long, ongoing process. The trick is bridging that gap between the developers and those actually using the tool that’s being developed. We don’t always understand each other, but if you can learn to communicate effectively, there is a great deal of potential in building your own software.

That’s not to say we don’t occasionally dream about just buying a pre-built EMS that, while we wouldn’t necessarily have the flexibility to change things we don’t like about it, we would have it now, and we would have the peace of mind knowing it was built specifically by meetings planners for meeting planners.

There are many EMS options out there, including the big names like cvent, regonline and Constant Contact, as well as smaller companies that may be local to you, like SignUp4 is to us.

Do you use an in-house system or have you purchased one? What do you see as the pros and cons (if any) of the system you use?
