Pros: Easy to use and the end result is excellent for the end users. It cuts down on a lot of manual work we used to do onsite and a lot of printed paper materials we used to have to prepare.

Cons: Some of it can be quirky for setup. Login/Privacy issues are troublesome because if you use them, it makes the online version of the app locked to anyone but registered attendees. Can be good if that's what you want but not when you only want certain things to be locked. It's not a huge deal and they are quick to make improvements to the software and features.

Overall: I've been using this for our big events for the last few years and it has worked out very well. Some of the login features are quirky, but they keep adding updates and features to make everything run better and more smoothly. It can be customized for many looks and you can use your own launch icons that you create to really make the app branded to your events. The attendee experience has been very positive through the app because it gives them the ability to network and makes everything from the program and speaker information to on site locations easy to find. If you use other CVENT software, it can all be synced so it saves a lot of time without having to enter the same details in two or more places.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are not syncing info from CVENT, be sure to use the export/import features to cut down on a lot of extra work when you can. Overall, this is very good for anyone who wants an event app that is easy to setup and easy for attendees to use. The Map feature is especially useful when you have a lot of booths or specific locations to point out.

Paid for Stand Alone APP, with new APPLE Policy, CC Cvent not honoring and not reimbursing the cost.

Pros: The Crowdcompass Cvent Stand Alone Option was nice but they took it away and did not reimburse our company the difference. Wanted us to pay the apple license fee too. The APP was easy to use, has great tutorials, and 1800 helpdesk. Everything was great up until they decided not to honor their contract. Will not be back with this company

Cons: Only issue is the difference in price between Stand Alone and Container contract. Our last event APP is contained yet they will not reimburse our company the difference. Want us to pay the fee to APPLE. Original contract not honored.

Overall: We paid for stand-alone app vs container at a difference of price. Last Event app of contract was placed in a container app and no reimbursed amount was given. Don't see a benefit there except to the company??? Still working on getting the reimbursement and considering legal action for breach of contract.

Setup was tough, but worth the effort.

Pros: Attendees had a lot of fun with this onsite app. That was the biggest win, really. The ability to publish an up-to-the minute agenda with changes on the fly has been a tremendous help for the organizers.

Cons: The setup was not as seamless as we had hoped. Also several attendees had trouble with the login, as they needed their confirmation code from their registration.

Overall: The software helped us stay in touch with attendees and engage them in networking activities.

Pros: Very user-friendly and intuitive back-end means that there's not a huge ramp-up time for the event manager to learn the software. The software is very robust, but not difficult to use. And the support team is very responsive and helpful.

Cons: It's a bit pricey, but is worth it compared to other event mobile apps I have used and/or researched. There truly are no other cons!

Pros: I liked that i am able to send live notification to my attendees to keep them up to date with changes that are happening at my event.

Cons: I do not like that it seems like i am not able to customize the look and feel of the app very much. Seems like its a one size fit all product rather than tailored for individual needs.

Overall: I benefit because my attendees benefit! They get to be up to date and have their agendas right in their phones. And when there are room/time changes they receive those immediately.

Pros: saves money on printing, easy to update with last second changes, we can send out notifications, interactive maps, better networking

Cons: bit of a learning curve for the first few events

Overall: We've been using CrowdCompass for about 2 years and have really made major strides with it. There were some glitches with our first event (it coincided with the iOS8 release and lost functionality), but since then it's become a great asset. We love we can have feedback surveys for each session within the session. We no longer need to print out presentations and handouts since we can upload them and keep them up to date. And our attendees love they can snap pictures and post them. It's become a great interaction tool and after some initial resistance, it's become quite popular and praised by users.

Pros: I love the ease of use with this product. You can copy a previous event template if you only need to change a few things.

Cons: I don't like the desktop interface - I don't think it matches Cvent's brand. It would be better if it functioned more like their Event Management software, or was a direct link from the EM platform.

Pros: I like how you can build your own custom schedule and look at presenters bios very easily in the app.

Cons: I wish the evaluation feature per session was better. You can rate them on a star level, but not give specific feedback.

Pros: It was very easy to plug in your own info and use for an event. Customizable if you want, but also has most things there for you to use.

Cons: The contract is for a year, but they only really let you use it for one event. If you want to use it year round, you have to delete information and they aren't really set up for that. It's expensive for just one event, but if you use it for the year it's worth it. Lots of upsells- be careful to check what is included in your package.

Overall: Event app usage for more than one event

Pros: I like to have personalized agenda for my attendees, a way to push out messages to them should things change.

Cons: good potential but ease of use is not super intuitive and you need more than a couple of clicks to find what you are looking for. Agendas also are not intuitive so user doesn't always know to click on each item for details

Overall: agenda personalization, push out of notifications, polling

Pros: I like that this app has great User Interface. It looks awesome, which is not always something you can say about 3rd party mobile apps. This event is easy to use and provides great integration if using Cvent event management software for your registration.

Overall: I overall enjoy using the app. However, there are times when it has been quirky. Could have been the Operating system of the phone however, attendees find it hard to initially set it up.

Pros: So easy to use - both as a user and as an event planner working to set it up.

Overall: The Crowd Compass mobile app platform is so easy to use - both as a user as well as a planner that is working to set it up for an event. The ability to use it in real time to do audience polling, push notifications for announcements, etc. is second to none in my opinion. And the price makes it an easy choice when considering competitors.

I used CrowdCompass for a work event / conference.

Pros: The conference information was all kept in one spot and I could get access to the attendees contact info. It was also nice having all the documentation from each event downloadable with speaker bios, etc.

Cons: I wish it was easier to manage multiple conferences within one app. As a user, if they made the app accessible to host more than one conference (ie I wouldn't need to download a new app for each new conference) I think I'd be less likely to bounce around and would have more loyalty to the CrowdCompass app when creating my own event.

Overall: It was easy to organize and track everything I needed for the conference.

Cons: Still takes time to create.

Overall: When first purchased the CrowdCompass Event App, IPPFA was assigned two (2) people to assist us in getting started. The tech person spent at least 2hrs walking us thru the process of creating an Event App. Cannot say enough about the tech support people at CrowdCompass.

Recommendations to other buyers: Nope

Pros: Really clean app with great features. Loved the "real time" agenda with automatic changes. Easy to follow.

Cons: Really liked it once I got it going. Took a little bit to get set up but I think that is more on me then the software.

Overall: Clean and easy to use. Love the updates and polling.
