Arlington, VA — Capterra, an online software reviews service that helps businesses find the right software, released its newest iteration in a series of Top 20 Software infographics: The Top 20 Most Popular Event Management Software. This is the first study of its kind to rank event management software by market popularity, and Eventbrite, RegOnline, and Cvent claimed the top three spots.
Event Management software allows organizations to better coordinate live events, meetings, and trainings by tracking registration, accepting payments, and facilitating attendee interaction during the event.
"Managing an event can be challenging. Everything from content, attendance, sponsorship and beyond impacts whether or not an event goes smoothly. Event management solutions offer a way to juggle all of those pieces effectively to ensure the success of any function," said Capterra President and CEO, Michael Ortner.
Capterra determined the rankings based off its popularity index - a weighted and ranked score that includes number of customers, number of users, and metrics of social presence. Other recent infographics in this series include Project Management, Contract Management, Accounting Software, and Help Desk Management. The company updates each infographic multiple times per year in order to keep the data up-to-date and reflect trends and changes within growing industries.
"RSVPing to an event is no longer just checking a box. As event technology increasingly moves to the cloud, planners can do more to interact with their attendees before, during, and after an event," said Ortner. "It becomes a two-way street. When customer interaction takes place, the attendee can get more out of the program, and the host can learn how make improvements for the next one. Software facilitates this conversation, plus it automates a lot of the planning from the get-go."
