    5 Top Questions to Ask When Buying an Event Management Software

    Back in the day, we used to get our pen and papers to help plot a plan for an upcoming event. That was quite troublesome because those papers can get lost or get wet and you have to go back to the drawing board again to rewrite it all.

    But, thanks to modern technology, there are now event management programs that can really ease the planning and execution process.

    If you’re someone who offers event planning services and are looking to buy an event management program, then you’ve come to the right article. I am going to tell you some questions that you need to ask yourself before getting one.

    Before I get started, though, I want to preface this by saying that there is no perfect event management software out there that can do all of the things that we want. There are some things that are present in this software while there are some features that are available in other programs and not others. However, it really depends on your use-case scenario. With that being said, let’s get started with…

    1. Goals?

    Yes, that’s right. The first thing that you need to ask yourself is what are your goals? Is it to come up with an event that will give an amazing experience? Do you want to make it attractive enough so that you will enjoy some good ticket sales? Or perhaps, the event is solely to promote a brand or service?

    There are certainly some apps out there that can help you with these, but again, not all of them can be found in one software. So you’ve got to choose one that suits your main goal.

    2. Feedback?

    To help you make an informed decision when it comes to buying an event management software, you have to ask for feedback- either from the people that you know that have used such or from the internet.

    The good thing is that there are a ton of user reviews and feedback that you can find online on a specific event management platform. And, there are even some who are ready to talk about how a program can succeed or fail when it comes to the features.

    3. Trial?

    Some amazing programs out there offer a free trial to give you some first-hand experience of the product without having to spend your money just yet.

    Of course, not every one of them out there offers this, so it is best that you find one that offers a free trial service.

    4. How Well Does It Work with Others?

    One of the strengths of an event management platform is how well it performs with others. For example, how well does it integrate its features in a CRM software? How well does it integrate with the different social media sites? Asking these questions will help you find a suitable program for you and your business.

    5. Does It Come with the Right Features?

    At the end of the day, it all boils down to the feature set. Some of the most important features that event management software should have are event analytics such as total registration, gross event revenue, just to name a few.

    It also should have a reminder option that will give you notifications as to what part of the event you should be working on at this time, and so on. Again, the features that you want should satisfy your goal.

    Conclusion

    The truth is, there is no perfect event management software out there. However, you could find one that satisfies all your goals and will make your life easier as an event planner and coordinator.

    5 Mobile App Development Trends and Insights for 2018

    Introduction

    We are nearing the end of 2018 and it there are already some app development that are taking the cake. Some of these apps have new trends being implemented in them. Take for example the ArtPassport that uses virtual reality to give users a sort of a tour in a museum; immersing them in such a way that they’re actually in the place. Some trends that also stand out are video/audio editing apps like Musical.ly and you shouldn’t forget about Social Media because Instagram is already taking the 5 th spot (and it is most likely going to stay in the top 5 until the end of the year). So, what are some insights that we can see so far? Well, below are just some of them.

    1. Mobile Payments


    With the introduction of the Android and Apple Pay back in 2015, more and more applications are being built to help consumers find meaningful and easy ways to pay for things. For instance, people can pay their bills, their rent, and they can even pay for their food, all while using their smartphones. And the thing I like about the future of mobile payments is that it is going to be a more robust app in that they’re not only used for paying stuff, but they also give you a financial statement about how much money you’ve earned and where you spent some of them. It is only going to be more convenient as the years’ progress.

    2. Augmented and Virtual Realities Never Get Old


    Or in other words, we do not get tired of it. If you’ve used Snapchat or Faceapp, there is a feature that lets you edit your photos beyond what a normal editing software can do; and you can do it instantly! For example, you could use one of your recent pictures and you can get edit them in a way that makes you younger or older depending on your preference. This feature is actually part of what Augmented Reality has to offer. Now, imagine if the technology gets upgraded in the next few years, we could add some more AR elements to make our pictures come to life or something like that. Also, Virtual Reality, albeit not too popular this year, is still going to make a buzz later on as more smartphones are getting really good performance packages.

    3. More Apps with BlockChain

    BlockChain is going to be the future when it comes to online transactions- may it be money or sensitive data. In fact, many developers from Asia are already creating applications implementing BlockChain technology and with the rise of Cryptocurrency, we are going to see more of them all over the world in less than 5 years or so.

    4. Integrated Cloud-Based Apps


    Cloud technology has made it innovative to store and share our data. The ability to be able to keep one own files safe in a secure only storage facility is a really good idea. And, with faster internet speeds, uploading and downloading files to and from the cloud- based storage would be a cinch.

    5. Apps are Going to Be More Secure


    We can pretty much do anything with our smartphones now. We can do online transactions, we can buy things, and we can even store our precious files. It is, therefore, a high priority to increase app security. That is actually being done by a lot of online security firms as they are continuing to develop the means to bolster an application’s security measures.
