Planning events is never easy. It’s especially not easy when you have 400 attendees and you’re trying to check them all in via printed Excel sheets.
That’s why for Jacqueline Stillman, Support Services Officer at Mohawk College’s Office of the President and Special Events, utilizing ePly was a breath of fresh air. “The check-in process is definitely streamlined now,” said Stillman. “You can pull registration reports and check-in reports in real-time, which not only speeds up the check-in process, but allows you to make onsite decisions accordingly.”
As is the case in many higher education settings, there are hundreds of events that occur each year at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan — and they’re all managed by one department. So if planning one event is challenging, imagine managing multiple all at once, each with very different needs!
According to Deidre Turner though, a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and Event Specialist at the University, using ePly has created significantly more transparency between her team and their internal clients.
The reporting capabilities, in particular, have been a game-changer.
