Three Things The Best Event Management Softwares Do

By Katy Mullet | 2 min read

Finding the best event management software to help grow and manage your events program can be both thrilling and aggravating. Finally – something to take the busy work off your plate! But also, convincing your boss to spend the money can feel insurmountable. 

Searching for software is just one more thing on your to-do list, so it helps to know what to look for. Whether you’re looking for a software or interested in switching to a new one, we’ve put together a guide that helps you narrow down your options. In the meantime, we’ve put together the three things every event management platform should accomplish. 

What the Best Event Management Software Should Accomplish

Accelerate Your Growth

Whether you’re just getting started in events or have been hosting for years, the platform you choose should help you scale. See how they take in leads, how they can speed up your response time and optimize your operations through reporting. And if you’re not clear that they’re committed to your growth, on to the next one! 

Easy to Use

Demos are the best way to see how a software works and imagine your day-to-day using it. Being easy to use is a requirement – you’re already busy and have a process so it should help streamline what you and your team already do. Also, check-in on how they support current customers – you want someone available when you have new team members or there’s an issue with the system. 

Handle the Heavy Lifting 

People are core to running events, but a lot of event managers complain about how much time is spent dealing with fires related to internal communication instead of relationship-building with current and future guests. Find a tool that helps with everything from team communication to compliance so you can focus on bringing in new leads and not on the headache-inducing tasks. 

Hopefully, this has made your search a bit clearer! In general, finding a partner can take some time, but it’s worth researching all your options (like Gather!) to see what’s the best fit for your venue.
