Event Management CRM Systems

Event Management Software Systems

Our event management software systems provide an incredible array of features designed to help you manage virtually every aspect of your training, speaking or seminar business. Click the headings below to view many of our systems.

Our Event Management CRM systems will help you provide better customer service, up-sell products more effectively, make call centers more efficient, and permanently track customer communications. Search for, create new, and modify the records of your prospects, customers and leads. You can then easily access all the critical information about their relationship to you, such as their full purchase and payment history, their attendance history and list of upcoming courses, plus the history of conversations and issues you have recorded about them. By having your entire event management admin systems and your CRM in a single software package, you'll save administrative costs and increase sales.

For instance, the Customer Communications History & Issue Tracking tools, called the 1-Call System, can be used to track incoming customer issues from start to finish, but can also be used to schedule follow up calls for your sales team.

Customer Contact Information Database - Systems to Decrease Costs
Use our "people" pages to track everything from basic contact information and demographics to complete purchase, attendance, and payment histories.
  • create, import or signup an unlimited number of people in your contact information database
  • tag records in your database as duplicates of the same actual person
  • manage email subscription status and use our Unsubscribe and Email Bounced status notices to ensure the highest communication standards with your customers
  • review email sent history for any emails sent from your installation and resend emails with a single click

Customer Communications History & Issue Tracking - Systems to Decrease Costs
Use our "1-Call" system to ensure every customer communication is logged and all issues are tracked, starting with the person who takes the customer call to the final person who resolves the issue and reports back to your patrons. (The client issue tracking system is called the "1-Call" system because it's creation was intended to ensure customers only need to place "one call" to have any issue resolved.)
  • create permanent communications history records for any issues you want to keep track of for any customer in your database
  • create an unlimited number of 1-Calls for each customer... ...every 1-Call functions like a conversation "thread" which can be updated or added to at any point
  • each 1-Call has both an "Owner" and "Assignee" so that all customer issues can be delegated to appropriate administrators while an Owner remains accountable to the customer
  • "Active" and "Resolved" states in combination with the "Must Resolve By Dates" automatically generates a To Do List on the "My 1-Calls" page for each of your administrators
  • send email directly from the 1-Call system and retain a record of what was written, by whom and on what date. A 1-Call "Email Merge Tag" allows a reference number to be included in the email to customers to help orient your phone staff to the specific issue quickly
  • notification of 1-Calls appear strategically on various administrative pages so your staff can be made aware of issues for customers at the moment the information is most relevant
  • the 1-Call system is tied into the Accounts Receivable System so that all contact with a customer regarding money owed is permanently logged
  • the "My 1-Calls" page provides a full view of each administrator's currently active 1-Calls, providing a manager with an overview so they can intercede as needed
  • 1-Call breakdown report shows the number of issues each administrator currently has allowing for better distribution of issues in the event of bottlenecks, staff illness, or staff turn-over
  • use 1-Call system as an intra-office delegation tool. For instance, a marketing manager can create 1-Calls for other staff to perform sales calls and can schedule the action so it will show up as a priority as the deadline approaches.
  • import past call-logs or any other form of text based data you need to migrate from your existing database in order to preserve "conversations" you've had with your customers in the past
  • use the import 1-Calls tool to create a mass of 1-Calls for any purpose such as delegating sales calls or recording significant notes for a specific group of people

Customer Critical Alert Notification - Systems to Decrease Costs
Some types of information about a customer will be true for that customer always, and needs to be communicated to the staff who actually manage the live events. For instance, if a customer has a medical condition, such as a wheelchair, you can record this in the Critical Alert form to ensure your customers' needs are known throughout your organization.
  • critical alert information can be stored for each customer
  • when a critical alert exists, the contact information page will display an alert for administrators who may be dealing with the customer at that moment allowing them to determine if the information is relevant to their current administrative action

Event Management CRM Systems Summary

Event Management CRM has very unique requirements compared to standard Customer Relationship Management software. Since so much of event CRM relates to attendees, the solution you choose needs to ensure that all relevant communications with a customer is related to that customer's attendance and event registration history. Beside the obvious needs, when talking with your customers, to know which specific program their issue relates to, your ability to up-sell them into additional seminars, trainings, or workshops depends on being able to see every course they've attended in the past, their entire purchase history, and any relevant past issues which might influence their purchasing decision. Because Signup Systems was built with event management CRM needs in mind, all of this information is always available to your administrators and sales people within one or two clicks for every customer.
