Good online registration software features database-driven functionality that allows users to import and export registrant data, track things like participation and payment, and automate correspondence such as event confirmations, invoices, wait lists and more.
One of the key value propositions of such a registration system is that it improves the registrant experience while saving you the time of data entry and the trouble of registration errors caused by bad keystrokes or faulty record keeping.
Good registration software keeps your data in order in one central repository, whether that data was entered by a registrant through your website or entered the day of an event by a staff person handling walk-in traffic. Once the registrant data is in the system, you should never have to recreate it. And any changes made to the data (e.g., a new phone number or e-mail address), will be reflected across your system.
This is a difference-maker for those having to manually enter hundreds of names into a not-so-good online registration system or spreadsheet, sometimes for each new event. With software such as ABC Signup, that information can be imported en masse – at the click of a mouse – into the system, saving hours, errors and sore wrists.
Simple actions thereafter (again, with good registration software) enable the user to deploy the information to do everything from create personalized e-mail event invitations to award CEU credits to export financial reports.
In a nutshell, registration software enables you to spend less time keying in data and more time finding keys to better programs and events. If you are interest in learning more about this and other benefits of online registration software, please contact us at your convenience.
