"Great Event Management Solution"

What do you like best?

Easy Setup, user friendly, rich features and tools, native to Salesforce platform

You can use this product to set up events using their highly configurable templates. You can also add branding, logo and various ticket types. It supports venues, classes, speakers, vendors, scheduling, registration, online payment for tickets etc.

What do you dislike?

Not flexible enough to support deviations from core product capabilities, rigid

I had used this product in the Salesforce classic interface and it felt very cumbersome at times. I haven't had a chance to evaluate this in the lightning experience yet and hence cannot comment on the latest version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking to use Fonteva Events for a B2C use case, it is by far the best solution on the Salesforce platform. You should consider this solution because it supports all the common use cases for event management.

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

We implemented Event management module for a large global customer for their rallies and large events. This tool was extremely useful to support all the basic use cases required by the customer.

"Great for Current Salesforce Users"

What do you like best?

Since it's built on Salesforce, Fonteva transfers our event data right into our Salesforce org, which is where we track everything else. That is fabulous. The event builder is also very intuitive, even for our less tech-inclined staff.

What do you dislike?

There are a few pieces of functionality that I wish Fonteva had, such as automatically writing registration form information back to the attendee record. But these aren't deal breakers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure you clearly map out your requirements before starting to install the events app. And give yourself plenty of time before you go live, especially if you don't have an experienced Salesforce administrator on staff.

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

Our previous event management system was separate from Salesforce. Data transfer was a pain, to say the least. Fonteva solved that issue by putting the data in the system right away.

"Great events module that is native to Salesforce and is built for associations from a growing org."

What do you like best?

This events app is built right on top of Salesforce. The amount of features, the look and feel, and the UX are fare superior to former solutions. Plus, this has its own eCommerce capability which can used with the rest of the Fonteva product. Regular new releases are slated. I also like the fact that the company is growing quickly.

What do you dislike?

There are some items which are slated to be released which are not currently available. Some of the SEO elements aren't yet in place. As with any system, there are some constraint, and I hope that in a forthcoming release there will be a more comprehensive set of features to help with search.

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

We need to have a better UX for our association members to find and register for events. We need to be able to make changes on the fly in real time, and we need to be able to support different event types. So far, building attractive events is an easy and quick process.

"Events Made Easy All On Salesforce"

What do you like best?

Out of the box Event Management functionality for Salesforce. There is no worthy competition to this product. If I'm looking to add any type of Event functionality to a Salesforce org this is where I go immediately. Fonteva's software makes Events easy; I've set it up and customized it for a company in an hour or two and then they can make Events within a few minutes. It always wows my customers to have such functionality so quickly.

What do you dislike?

Custom and complicated development on their pages can be time consuming. Out of the box everything is fantastic, but custom Visualforce pages and CSS can take a lot of debugging. Wish it was easier to customize better. But this is a minor blemish on a fantastic product.

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

"I want to be easily able to organize Events and Conferences, and I want the best software for it"

"I want to be easily able to integrate my Events software with the best Membership software"

"I use Salesforce and want to drive customer engagement in person"

"Best Event Module to date!"

What do you like best?

The layout is easy enough to allow any user setup and schedule Events. The wizzy wig is out of this world. But the preview to see the updates real time is ideal to ensure the site is perfect!

What do you dislike?

I do not have any issues with the system are this time.

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

the Event Setup and dated feel will be resolved when we go live very soon.

"We’re hoping to run more and more events this way!"

What do you like best?

Great to run everything through one system rather than worrying about yet more integrations

What do you dislike?

Our large events are so large that we worry about placing confidence in this unfamiliar feature (18k attendees+), because we’re comfortable running these big events with third party vendors

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

Synchronizing our information in one system to avoid the worry about mismatch in integrations, reducing duplicates, allowing effective and quick email marketing through Marketo

What do you dislike?

"Makes event operations less of a pain "

What do you like best?

Ease of setting up registration including discounts, refunds, etc. Instead of using third party sites, great that we can keep our operations in house.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really...its pretty straighforward

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

registration issues with third party sites and delay with reporting. Having control over our registration and the ability to receive results in real time without depending on a third party company for updated numbers.
