Pros
The weekly meetings in the months leading up to the event and the dedicated support during the event itself were both extremely helpful.
Customer service is amazing, and highly personalized. It is great that our team can generate reports to view and customize product categories, and online booth profile functionality.
My experience with a2z has been excellent. The customer service is beyond amazing.
Cons
There does not seem to be a reason for them not working and the cryptic error message does not resolve the problem either.
Overall updates made by Pathable often affected our program poorly - one such was discovered during our program.
There's not a lot I don't like about the a2z software. In the rare case that I do experience any issue, it's usually due to my own user error.

Excellent product that helps our event floor plan and financial functions

Reviewed 4 years ago

Very satisfied with the service and dependability.

Pros

The ease of use, and various financial, communication, and floor plan functions.

Cons

The interface could be more modern - we have used a2z for 9 + years and still the same interface. Also, the email function could have templates, etc. to make them look more modern - example an invoice template etc.

Vendor response

a2z for show management

Reviewed 4 years ago

a2z has been more than what I every could have hoped for (for Exhibits). I am also thrilled with the show app. However, my colleagues have been very unhappy with the conference side of things both from the client support and the software functionality. They have switched back to Cadmium which is what they were using before. We have looked at Cadmium for exhibits but the picture design vs. the CAD design has ruled it out for us. I have ALWAYS felt that I (we) were very well supported by the staff at a2z. Before the firm was sold I had always wished that I had worked there when I finished with my software company and product, STARSystem.

Pros

I like most that the software meets our needs as show management both from the perspective of making and managing the sales process and that it also meets the needs of our exhibitors and sponsors. It is rare to find a need that it does not handle and also very (very) important for a web-based system, it is rare to find the system down and unavailable. I am also very impressed with the new web-based support. Regardless of whether I reach my designated account person (who really knows her stuff), I always get near instant support and that support resolves my issue.

Cons

I do find that some features of floor plan management such as creating an NES or moving a booth do not always work the first time. There does not seem to be a reason for them not working and the cryptic error message does not resolve the problem either. Usually going after the goal a different way or reloading the floor plan does resolve it though. I have never found that there was an issue I could not find a way around to get it resolved. It seems "fuzzy" to me when is the contact and address used from the company tab, the contact tab, or the booth info tab. I wish I had a better understanding not just of which should be used when and for what but also then which is reported out in which report.

Vendor response

Mark, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review! We're grateful for your kind words and for your willingness to share your review with us and the Capterra community. Thank you too for your feedback on our floorplan. We're sorry to hear about your challenges and hope our latest floorplan release has resolved them. If you continue to run into issues please don't hesitate to let us know!

My thoughts with GTR

Reviewed 2 years ago

Was a disappointed on the system and customer services always saying we will get back to you. They wont get back to us until days after or even weeks after. This system needs much work.

Pros

The front side of the registration was easy to use.

Cons

The Addmin side was very difficult to use many tabs you had to go to apply reg type, add transactions, add payment. We had problem with the promo codes not working. When we would try to save something it wouldnt take our change, it wouldnt save it. The system was very SLOW not only for us but for our customers, we had double transactions dues to this. In order to add a registration on the admin side...

Going paperless

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have always used 5-page paper contracts for our 200+ exhibitors every year. Since we already use a2z's floor plan management, we decided to add the online exhibitor contract and payments module this year. We haven't been through an entire show cycle with the new system yet, but I am very excited to be free from paper contracts!

Pros

I like the customization of everything from the floor plan to the communication templates. I'm also grateful for the willingness of my project manager to find solutions to our association's intricacies.

Cons

The template and messaging systems are tricky to get used to.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review! We're grateful for your kind words and for your willingness to share your review with us and the Capterra community. Thank you too for the feedback with regards to the template and messaging systems. Both are key to the value we provide our clients and we are always looking for ways to improve them. We've got some great things planned for the year ahead and can't wait to share them - stay tuned....

Great platform for a virtual conference or just as an event app!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great way to bring an in-person conference experience to those who are unable to attend or participate in person. Also, having the platform display like a webpage is very helpful for our website as well as using on any device.

Pros

Ease of use for our attendees, and the outstanding customer service that is provided.

Cons

The only complaint we have would be from our presenters who struggle with having to toggle between screens when presenting to see the chat since it's not embedded in their zoom room, but instead in the platform for the attendees to both see with ease and for those who watch the recordings to be able to see as well.
