"Good program but can be a little difficult to implement"

What do you like best?

The customer service is pretty good, they responded very quickly and worked hard to find a solution to my needs.

What do you dislike?

It took a lot of work on my end in order to create an app that would meet my needs. I think it was difficult because I would have worked out a solution with one team member and that information was not communicated with the rest of the team so it ended up taking much more time and effort to create my app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product is good, just be clear of what you are needing up front. I do think that some of my issues may have been caused because we had an event that is abnormal. We did a scientific conference which was an educational event. This caused us to have to rearrange some of the app a little more than may would have needed to be done with other events.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed an app for my event. They showed me that in the future they can help me with event management.

"A2Z easy as 123"

What do you like best?

I love the reporting that is available. I also like that we can use it to process credit cards. It is super handy and has been a real time saver.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see improvement to the invoicing module. It feels very generic and should be easier to customize. That being said, I couldn’t imagine not having the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to have a list of priorities to see if everything is a fit. As I mentioned, the invoices aren’t very customizable, so if that is a must for you, A2Z would not be a good fit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Designing and editing floor plans are so much easier with this software. It has actually freed up a large chunk of time that can be put elsewhere.

What Event Management Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Improve productivity"

What do you like best?

I like that I can engage new prospects through innovative promotional options. Furthermore, you can use it to increase exhibit sales and digital revenues as well as improve productivity for the company.

What do you dislike?

It does not have a lot of features at the moment and may sometimes be unresponsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They have lots of big clients and also offer demos for new clients that might be interested. Do give it a try

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to manage the conference logistics in real-time as well as ensuring a great digital experience for our clients.

"Floorplan Genie - Mediocre at Best"

What do you like best?

I've used A2Z's free floorplan management software for two different events that we were previously updating floorplans using PDF documents. The program was fairly easy to learn how to use/manipulate.

What do you dislike?

While it's DEFINITELY a time-saver to have the live floorplan, the lag in getting this up and running was slightly painful. I definitely felt/feel like I am one of the "Free" software users and not a paying customer. We waited weeks for our floorplan to be uploaded, sent a contact database that was never uploaded and have experienced a lack in response to customer service requests.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have no experience with the paid A2Z event management software, but their free platform is sufficient for basic use. Nothing fancy and "you get what you pay for."

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I mentioned before, for the two events that we uploaded into the Floorplan Genie were previously using PDF floorplans that we needed to manually update, so this software was DEFINITELY a step in the right direction. Even with the unpaid platform, the reporting features seem to be highly customizable, which is great for reporting to clients and collecting/organizing directory information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

call me--will be happy to discuss

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

reporting progress is much easier; designing and editing floor plans is easier; having exhibitors go online and pay and update their profiles has taken the onus off of my staff. Keeping track of priority points and history is easier and minimizes mistakes

What do you like best?

I think it is very easy to use. And when there is a problem or question, my contact is very responsive.

It was just upgraded and that takes a little time to get used to. I am still discovering all the features.

It is simple to learn and simple to use.

It has a ton of features.

"Frequent user of a2z for tradeshows"

What do you like best?

I like the reporting functionalities and the financial processing system for credit card payments.

What do you dislike?

I wish the invoice was customizable or at least offer a build your own invoice to meet your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to pull and provide exhibitor reports rather than asking my exhibits manager to pull. I am also able to process payments for meeting room rental fees separately than the booth space payment.

"Conference Management "

What do you like best?

A lot of mobile app developers are able to sync seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

It's not very intuitive, it requires a lot of unnecessary details and it is not easy to be customized based on need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to get information populated into a mobile app. The benefit is that a lot of providers are able to sync directly and easily.

"Somewhat decent conference management"

What do you like best?

Seamless synchronization for mobile app developers

Cannot be easily customized to tailor to user preferences

Recommendations to others considering the product

While it is simple to learn and use, you get what you pay for. If you don't use the paid A2Z event platform, you have limited features
