The Benefits of Online Events Registration Software

Aug 18, 2007
If you ask any event planner just what task they least like to do, they would reply that it would be having to deal with manual registrations for conferences or events, because there is so much repetition and so many calls to deal with. There are however plenty of benefits if online events registration is used.

The biggest problems with manual systems that use email, fax, mail, or phone is that handwriting can be almost impossible to read on the forms. Then these mistakes find themselves transposed to the system. Add that to the fact that it takes forever to process credit cards because you've got to place a call to everyone.

Intranets and Internets also pose a problem. Often it's difficult to get cooperation from the IT department to make the necessary types of changes that you need, and then trying to figure out which of the 45 online systems are right for you can be time consuming and too expensive. Too often this decision is made by the IT department and you are left with a choice that doesn't actually meet your events registration needs.

There has to be a better way to streamline the process and make it easier for both the person registering, and for the events coordinator while encouraging the maximum registration.

The solution is really quite simple. Why not use an online events registration system that is designed to do nothing else but online registrations and to do it well each and every time. The online events registration system will allow you to customize the system to your specific registration forms, add your company logo, and any other information you require for your registrations.

You want to design your form to be simple, which encourages completion and increases attendance. Otherwise potential registrants become frustrated and abandon the form. You want to automatically accept payment at the time of registration, which means registrants have to make a commitment.

A good online events registration system will reduce the time you spend processing registration by as much as 85%. Now that's impressive! It will give those that want to register an easy process and give you a well-reduced deduction in processing time. No more piles of mail; no more faxes; and no more phone calls. Online events registration will make the process so simple, and finally you will have the free time you need for other projects.

Setting up your online events registration system can take as little as an hour. You make changes to the form as you need including schedule dates, and payment options. You are in total control of how your form will look, and how it will be processed.

Web based registration systems will charge anywhere from $2.00 to $10.00 depending on the number of registrants per year. That's a heck of a deal considering they maintain the software and do upgrades to the servers when needed, and your time can be spent on more productive tasks.

Now that you know the benefits of online events registration, don't you think now is a good time to further explore this option?
