Organizing events and selling tickets manually has been your forte. But this time you decided to be a little more efficient and look for an event management software that’ll save you time and money. With multiple companies offering you event management solutions and software, you’re confused. One thing that can help you decide on the best event management software is its features. Here are the top 10 features we think is a must-have for every event management software.
Virtual Box Office
With multiple activities to handle while organizing an event, time is what you need. For example, this holiday season if you’ve planned 10 events, you wouldn’t want to create each event from scratch. This must-have feature helps you save a whole lot of time. We call it “The Virtual Box Office”. It gives you single-click access to the event wizard, real-time sales analytics, reporting, inventory management and a lot more. Are you wondering how does it save time? It has a performance customization feature that lets you create multiple events in no time. Using this feature, you can simply copy your existing event and make changes to it.
Online Ticket Store
Does your event management software offer you a platform to showcase your events? Another feature you must consider is the online ticket store which is also referred to as the events page. This store lets you display all your events in a single page.
The online ticket store is like the stage of a theater, it’s the most happening drama everyone wants to see. It’s where your attendees can see the event details like the date, artist information, and address of the venue. When you promote your event online, they are directed to the online store to purchase tickets. With Yapsody’s event registration and management software, you can customize your store the way you like it. You can add your brand logo, colors, images of your artists and external links to your social media pages. You can also geo-tag your events so your attendees know how to get to the venue.
Multiple Payment Gateway
When you deal with your attendees’ hard-earned money, you can’t take a risk. Payment gateways are a secure way of collecting payments. When an attendee buys a ticket, these systems authorize payments from the attendee’s account directly to your bank account.
While most event ticketing companies may have limited payment gateway options, our event management software offers multiple choices to you. Our popular payment gateways include Stripe, Braintree, PayPal, WePay and many others for close to 60 countries across the globe. That way, you receive the money from the ticket sales directly to your bank account.
As an event manager, you don’t want the language to be a barrier between you and your audience. An event management software with multi-language support gives you an upper edge as compared to your competitors.
Whether you’re in France, Spain or Germany, our event management software lets you create your event in your native language. Our software supports 15 prominent languages so you can connect with your attendees easily without a communication barrier. Apart from language, we also support 170+ currencies across the globe.
