Pros: -Ease of use (very intuitive)
-Great customer service: Vendini has an incredible response time to any support request.
-Constantly improving: When we asked for a new feature they added us to a list of people that requested the same feature and not long after we were in the beta testing group.
-Donor information and tracking is robust for small to midsize organizations: We have a small team and we have barely scratched the surface of the donor and patron information

Cons: -Mobile version of the seating chart can be cumbersome and could scale better (I would add that we haven't received any complaints but that is our offices' opinion).

Pros: Includes most of functions needed in a ticket system at a price comparable with other pro systems. The interface is fairly straightforward.

Cons: I used Vendini for many years before switching to a competing service. One of the main reasons I switched was that FOR YEARS Vendini refused to implement suggested features, improvements, and upgrades. By contrast, the competing service (still a client) often implements suggested features within days or weeks.

Overall: Worked well enough for years with core functionality. But company failed to improve or implement suggested features.

Pros: Vendini offers several options to enhance your experience when selling tickets for an event or show. You are able to use your website and logo as well as the logo of the band or event you are selling tickets for. My favorite option is the ability to add a donation to individual's purchases. I worked with a Foundation that was raising funds for scholarships. Being able to add an additional donation button gave me the opportunity to earn additional funds for my Foundation. In addition, I loved the marketing portion. To be able to send an email to patrons through vendini instead of constant contact was super easy.

Cons: The function that I liked the least was that you are limited to character usage and design when it comes to marketing your events. Sometimes the buttons are difficult to use and change when trying to make the email blasts more appealing.

Pros: Vendini ticket agent software is very user-friendly for selling tickets/donations/memberships/ etc. With the part-time box office staff typical turnover, it is great to be able to get staff up selling tickets. I can train new staff to do a sale, exchange, and refund within an hour. We have over 75,000 patrons per year, over 1000 performances and hundreds of different producers. We also produce our own festivals and programming and most other festivals in our 4 theatre complex. With this variety, we need a system that was flexible and works well with our eyes and.. attitude toward requests from our tenants. Vendini is approachable and focused on making the product work for us. They create a very personal connection to their customers and their support. I can be in touch several times a month trying to accommodate a request from one of our tenants, be it a certain type of reporting, or a membership/package they want to offer. I take these to my rep who works with the appropriate team to accommodate our needs. They have helped me create several specialized reports that give specific producers exactly what they want. They have helped me create seating venues that accommodate special pricing, sections, levels etc. . They have shown me useful ways to use memberships and fees. There have been many upgrades the past couple years, Email Marketing, reporting, ticket agent and patron manager. It's great to work with a company that listens to customers. Great possibilities!

Cons: The software is great, but of course not perfect. It can take time and some trial and error to get reports created how you want them. I feel there could still be work to do in this area. Support area is terrific and helpful, especially with urgent/time sensitive requests, but can take a bit longer when it is not priority. I think this is because they take time to find the right team, to give the best answer to solve the issue.

Pros: Ticket Agent accommodates our small venue theater. Follow the steps and you are selling tickets from a multiple of platforms: laptop, iPhone, computer, and iPad to name a few. You can quickly tab into the show, date, and preferred seats your patron desires without issues. The ability to hold seats, set seats aside (not for sale), and provide handicapped seating through the ticket agent only if that is your preference, are just a few of the simple elements that are completed with only a couple keystrokes.

Overall: Ticket Agent could only be better if we could select exact seats when selling from a cellular phone. This is one of the great attributes available on computer.

Pros: The integration with the website and online box office is one of the best features of Vendini. The box office software and apps are extremely easy to use have worked flawlessly with not lag or interruption. Our ticket sales have increased significantly since using Vendini, and season ticket subscribers increased from 10 to 45 in one year. Our fundraising has increased too as patrons easily add tip jar donations to each ticket purchase. Vendini customer service is outstanding - every person I have ever spoken with, email, or chatted with is polite, responsive, and knowledgeable. The additional features of credit card processing, equipment rental, patron database, email marketing, and more, Vendini is truly and all-in-one solution that we highly recommend.

Cons: Apps are not compatible with Android devices; and inability to sell gift cards while using Vendini credit card processing. But honestly, there isn't much NOT to like.

Pros: Ease of use, website interface is seamless with our website. Patrons like having the ability to select their own seat when purchasing through the website. For the business side, the online reports feature is wonderful. Personally my favorite app is Sales Spotlight, it is the absolute greatest thing ever.

Cons: When I type in a patrons name their information doesn't pop up automatically if they have attended before. That extra step of having to search the data base first is cumbersome and has led to many duplicate listings.

Pros: Vendini, on top of being a box office system, is a complete marketing solution. It offers you the ability to combine your patron databases into one centralized location and then build the database automatically as your attendance increases. You can then use this information for email marketing (a similar system and set up to Constant Contact but I think more intuitive), direct mailings and patron management (such as the scheduling of development activities). The ability to review patron history is invaluable. And you can customize the tagging and grouping of patrons to suit your needs. Additionally, the software provided a website solution for us.

Overall: It has changed the way we do business. I can directly attribute our success in the recent years to our implementation of this program. It decreased workload, increased quality of output and made our patrons stand-up and take notice. Vendini continues to make upgrades to areas of the system. They recently added a patron database management section with basic development tools like the ability to schedule calls or tasks. And their email marketing recently got a facelift. So some of my biggest concerns are being addressed.

Pros: The features in the software work for us and for our customers. I find it quite easy to set up events and email marketing blasts, and our audience members tell me that the ticket purchase process is also very intuitive.

Cons: It's pretty expensive. We are a very small orchestra and the fees take a bite out of our budget, but the less expensive system we used to use lost us customers through frustration, so we are willing to pay the prices to have a system that works.

Pros: The best part of this software is that it is cloud-based, easy to navigate and setup, they give you template/dimensions for graphics, and the sales interface is easy for anyone in the office to grasp. By the time someone has typed a donation letter, I've already processed payment and printed the tickets. It is, hands down, the best ticket system for managing not only the ticket sales, but the relationship with the customer. Yeah, I could do a one-time ticket sale with EventBrite or BrownPaper Tickets (whatever they're called), but I don't have a long running capture of deep customer spending and attendance history.

Cons: The only thing that we ran up against was that pew style seating is hard to section off in the software and, inevitably, it was easier to create general "rooms" for reserved sections rather than using the seating chart for a church sanctuary. It's wonderful for theater seating!

Pros: All the major functions are completely integrated: ticket sales, online sales, marketing, patron management and reporting. Setup of new events is a snap.

Cons: The reporting features seem to do what we want but it can be difficult to figure out what you need to do to get the report you want. On the other hand, the customer support is always there to help and explain things as needed. The email functionality needs to be updated as well--not terribly modern looking emails, and the functionality is a bit buggy.

Pros: While the software is accessible, it's really the customer support team that is incredible. Over the three years of use, whatever the question or the need to troubleshoot a matter, they are on top of it. Prompt responses are a given. Friendly, capable staffing makes a huge difference for me and all delivered without my need of being an expert. A great product that serves the needs of our theatre patrons online and at the box office, the software provides what is needed for a small venue or larger organization.

Pleased with Vendini!

Comments: I looked for ten years (no kidding) for the best software for our reservations and ticketing needs. We tried a few during that time frame that just didn't work well enough to suit our needs. I stumbled upon Vendini at an INTIX conference and instantly fell in love. The software has done exactly what I need AND the developers LISTEN to my needs and have actually improved the software based on our requests. They answer the phone when I have problems and FIX it, right away (there has only been a need for this a few times in over 4 years). The additions and features with all the available reports have made my job so much easier. We are more efficient in our marketing efforts (which has saved us a ton of money) due to the reports that tell us where our customers are coming from. The website that is attached to the software makes it a snap to always have the most up to date information on the web for our customers (which in turn has cut down on the number of phone calls from customers because they can easily find that info about us on our website now)
Try it... (I don't work for Vendini)... The day you sign up will be a very happy day. Your job will become so much easier, efficient and FUN. Plus Vendini has Camp Vendini every year where you can go and learn more about the functions of the software, learn about business in general and have some good old fashioned FUN networking with others from the same industry.
I recommend Vendini 100%

Pros: The ease of use and the flexibility.

Cons: It gets hung up sometimes and often it is because we need the latest update on a flash player but didn't even know it changed. I wish we had advisories about that.

Overall: I've been using Vendini ticketing software for eight years and have trained countless numbers of students at my University Box Office how to use the software in a quick amount of time. As our staffing changes each semester, and our events can change on a dime, the ability to train quickly, make changes instantly, and have flexible software that is easy to use, is imperative. I created some great relationships with the Vendini support team so that when there is an occasional hiccup, I know who to call and receive courteous and helpful service. But perhaps the most important aspect of Vendini is that it gets the job done. Not everything has to be complicated, and Vendini isn't!

Recommendations to other buyers: For a box office that has rotating staff that don't have the time to make operating ticketing software their first priority, this is a great option. I can teach someone to use Vendini at the window in five minutes to get us through a busy show. Then, teaching the more intricate levels of reporting, exchanges etc. is easy to build on. I have a student staff of 30 and often many of them change each semester based on their school schedules. Ease of use and success at accomplishing the task are my main priorities and Vendini accomplishes both. It is also affordable!

Pros: I like that this software can sell tickets across all my electronic platforms. It's mobile friendly. The reporting features are great. There are so many report options that I was able to find just the one that fits my needs. Most importantly the customer service is top notch! The Vendini team works year round to make this software the best in the business. They listen to our needs within the industry and then they figure out a way to incorporate those needs to continually keep the software up to date. Vendini tickets continues to by our companies ticketing choice year after year!

Cons: That I can't figure out how to make it send me a text or SMS message an hour before a kayak renter is due to arrive. Or how to make it send me a text or SMS message if a kayak renter books a boat less than 12 hours prior to sales cut-off time.

Overall: I searched 8 years for the best ticketing and reservation software. I found Vendini at the International Ticketing Trade Show in San Antonio about 4 years ago. They were great back then, but with all the enhancements that they have added every year since then Vendini is the only software that I use to sell my tickets and take reservations for my events.

Recommendations to other buyers: Vendini tickets is worth the time to give it a trial run. Once you've used it for 6 months to a year then you will see for yourself why this software package is the best one on the market. Vendini has so many features available that the software is completely customizable to fit most organizations.

This is what you need to run a successful box office!

Comments: I appreciate how easy it is to use the program, and that when I do call with any kind of issue I am rarely treated like a "number". It has happened a few times over the years, but more times than not I feel that the person I am speaking with will do whatever they can to solve my issue or find the person that can. This is one of the first things I tell people when speaking about Vendini. In this age of automated customer services, it is very nice to speak to a real person that seems to truely care.

Cons: Wish I had more hours in the day to utilize all the features of the program.

Overall: I have been using Vendini now for over 7 years. The system is used across our Performing Arts Department at a large urban high school. I do not have a staff other than the students in the class. This is what is so wonderful about Vendini, it can do a little or it can do a lot. The students who are trained on the program are learning industry standard Arts Management skills. It goes well beyond just ticketing but also incorporates easily social media such as email and Facebook. Since using the program our shows sell out, revenue is way up, and we are able to have an impressive professional face. I cannot say enough good things about the services the program offers. In fact, it has been so successful that our district, the second largest in California, is taking it district wide based on the success and recommendations from my site.

Recommendations to other buyers: It will change how you market your shows! It will make ticket sales exciting for you and your staff. The reports features and ability to use the program on tablets and phones will have you checking sales in the middle of the night just for fun :-)

We were able to move 1500 patrons through the one entry gate to our event within 15 minutes using Vendini equipment. Will continue to use Vendini year after year!

Comments: Overall the system has been a great change for us. We have had a huge learning curve as with any major changes, but the end result has been great. MerleFest is a tricky system to maneuver and so far, they have managed to meet most of our needs. We still have some work to do with system errors from time to time that can't be explained, and the Logistics Manager piece is at times challenging because of all our specifics, but overall, very greatful for the change.

Comments: Vendini, is one of the best vendors I have worked with. I've built some incredible relationships with many of the awesome people they employ and they're always right there ready to assist us when we need help! Their solution is simple and easy to use, that requires very little training when new staff start. It has an easy interface, that employees and students just understand. I've looked at many solutions for for ticketing systems, but none come close to the Vendini all in one solution.

Pros: Anyone can pick up this software and use it without instruction. It is a "quick learn" for my staff and easy-to-use for our guests. If I have any questions, the Vendini staff is quick to respond to my inquiries.

Cons: There is nothing I would change about Vendini.

Overall: Vendini has been a life-saver for our theatre! They have provided us with excellent customer service for over six years! I would be lost without them. They have helped our theatre grow by allowing us to provide our guests with a professional, easy-to-use, purchasing system. I highly recommend them if you are in the market for a ticket software system!

Recommendations to other buyers: No.

Pros: It's easy to navigate front end. The patrons rarely had trouble purchasing tickets.

Cons: The financial reporting that did not match.

Overall: I had worked with Vendini for two years prior to switching to another system. Vendini was fairly simple to use for the customers on the front end, but it became overly complex on the back end due to certain errors in reports and inability to override certain capabilities.

From the front end, Vendini was attractive and easy to use for our patrons. From finding the event, to choosing seats and paying--it created an easy functional flow for patrons to follow. The only major issue was that the donation feature on the payment page. It confused patrons (a handful of times) and lead them to believe they were to input their total instead of the total auto populating. These patrons entered their total amount in the donation field, and ended up paying for the event twice.

The back end of Vendini gave me a lot of issues. Granted, it's been about 2 years since I have used this system, so I'm sure improvements have been made. The building of an event was fairly simple, and if you needed to make changes once an event was live you could do that easily. My biggest qualm with Vendini was the financial reporting. No two reports that populated in the system matched, and it made reconciliation a painful experience. The way the reports broke down fees and discounts, made it difficult to reconcile with traveling entertainment companies who would need financial reporting at the completion of their concert. The reports that did not deal with money did match, and were useful. When I would try and contact customer service, they would send me to voicemail, and return my calls after hours (due to a time difference).

All in all, if you are not dealing with financial reporting, then Vendini is an easy to use and accesible to online patrons. I am confident that they have improved the system since my last use.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is used best when not dealing with complicated fee structures or discounts.

Comments: I cannot begin to express how amazing Vendini is. I operate the ticketing duties of our small community theatre and Vendini has been a treasure for us. From the setup of shows to the selling of tickets at the door to the listing of our shows on our website, Vendini has been there for us!

The reports that can be run are invaluable. We are able to keep up with our patrons, our finances and our proceeds easily and with extreme accuracy.

I cannot recommend Vendini enough. If you are looking for a professional organization and product to handle your ticket sales, look no further than Vendini!

Comments: We've been using Vendini since June 2011. One of the major reasons we switched ticketing providers was for ease of use. Our box office is staffed by a rotating group of students who need to be trained in a relatively short period of time. Vendini's POS TicketAgent is pretty self explanatory and my students are able to pick it up almost immediately. On the backend, building events the way we need them is a breeze and it almost seems like the reporting capabilities are limitless. It really makes my job easier by improving the flow of information to our marketing team and development office. As far as peripherals are concerned, Vendini is really "with it" in terms of functionality and integration. Our box office was able to upgrade to cash draws that electronically integrate with the POS and we added iPads & iPods so that we could offer print-at-home and mobile tickets. The apps developed to work with these devices are really cool and really easy to use. We get compliments from our customers all the time when we scan their ticket on an iPod or sell them tickets an iPad. I feel really confident knowing that they continue to program new tools and update existing ones to help make event ticketing simpler for venues like mine. What's also really helpful is that they have excellent training and continued learning opportunities through a comprehensive online support catalogue (including both written & video tutorials). It's a great resource. In addition, they host an annual Vendini Member Conference where you can network with system experts and other venues using their solution. It's an invaluable experience to learn more about their solution and how to get the most out of it. In terms of customer service, Vendini has been open to our feedback and responsive to all our requests and has always found a solution for any problems that we have experienced.

Comments: Overall, Vendini is an advanced ticketing system with mostly positive attributes. Every system has it's flaws but for the most part Vendini's technology and customer service outweigh most of the flaws. We use the system in a unique form and the system is relatively flexible in meeting our needs. The built in consignment manager and email marketing components are features that other systems do not current have. The packages and shopping cart features are what we use the most and Vendini's team is very receptive to user ideas and feedback on how to improve the system.

Comments: Pros: Easy to set up, clear and concise screens, easy to use and to train new staff, feature rich and affordable. Very good, usually fast, response from customer service.

Cons: unable to process multiple payment types in one transaction (if paying for part with a season membership and part by credit, must do separate transactions). Reports are generally good, but they can be confusing--in the beginning I needed to spend quite some time on the phone going over report details to make sure I understood the terms and how to read the reports correctly. Still have some questions about a few details, and still have some frustration about limiting and expanding reports. Also, we have regular complaints from online users about setting up online tickets--some is obviously user error, but some is based upon the OS they are using.
