The evolution of event management systems

Event management systems of today are a far cry from their predecessors. Thanks to rapid advances in technology, planning and managing an event is now simpler and extraordinarily faster than before.

A few short years ago, event planning involved reams of spreadsheets, that often contained conflicting information as all the information had to be manually updated. What’s more, this data had to be collected and consolidated by a team of people – which meant that incorrect or duplicated information was a common occurrence.

Today’s event management systems ensure that all data is accurate and up to date.

Sophisticated RSVP and event management systems are updated in real-time, allowing event planners to focus on other aspects of the event. Besides gaining valuable time that would have been spent on updating spreadsheets, event agencies are able to cut down on their expenses too. With these systems in place, they no longer need several staff members to oversee the event management process.

As data is acquired – such as new data from a guest who’s opened or accepted an invitation – it’s automatically entered into the system. This ensures that all event planning staff have access to the same information, resulting in a planning process that’s far more organised than in the past.

Having access to information that’s constantly updated enables events agencies to conduct events in the most professional manner possible.

Event management systems of old were rudimental at best, which means that accurate information wasn’t always on hand. This resulted in the unprofessional instance of inviting guests who no longer worked at a company, or who had requested not to receive any more correspondence from the client in question. In addition to being incredibly unprofessional – not to mention embarrassing – this resulted in conflicting data that made sending invitations problematic.

Thanks to innovative event management systems, all aspects of an event are now streamlined.

There’s been a marked improvement in event management, thanks to the fact that event planning agencies now have intelligent software at their disposal.

From the moment the ‘save the dates’ are sent out, to the time that guests are registered at an event, event management systems facilitate a process that’s inordinately more efficient. In addition, multiple staff are able to access the guest list, without the risk of data being accidently deleted or duplicated.

Events are now more professionally managed in a fraction of the time.

Thanks to event management systems, like our very own RSVP software, efficient management of corporate event is now a quick, organised and carefully orchestrated affair.

In addition, event management systems enable clients to gain valuable insight into their guests. The data collected during the RSVP process pertains to more than just the event in question. As this information sheds light on the behaviours and preferences of a market, companies are able to use this data across all aspects of their business.
