Accelevents Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Accelevents's features:

Pam Wilson

Incredible Experience

2020-06-01

Our experience with Accelevents.com was so much easier, provided the opportunity to extend the duration of our fundraiser, exceeded our financial goal, and provided such a fun experience for all of our donors that we have decided to always go forward with Accelevents.com in lieu of the events we used to host.

Pros

Turnkey process Data import Online dashboard and reporting Efficient and effective customer service Intuitive usage of the auction and raffle sites Integration with Stripe for processing credit cards Immediate collection of raffle ticket sales Effective checkout process on auction

Cons

The preliminary promotional online meeting went very quickly, and we missed a few details that were not obvious to us. Fortunately, the team supporting Accelevents.com were very responsive to online questions, and all of our questions were resolved with full satisfaction. We would like to see an enhancement to allow the ability to provide raffle items with a pre-defined number of winners greater than 1. -

Perfect for Small/Mid Size Auction

2019-01-26

The 1st time I used it was the 1st time we put the auction online--raising 33% more funds than in previous "bid on paper" years.

Pros

Integration for payment was awesome!

Cons

Small feature that's definitely not critical -- but a nice add on.

Makes bidding easy!

2019-09-25

Very good, easy to chat with an associate for assistance at any given time. I would definitely use this product again!

Pros

Everything is pretty customizable to fit your needs and the parameters of your auction.

Cons

We had an event where people where having a hard time getting the URL to work, sometimes it would take refreshing the page 4-5 times to actually get to the site.

Hi Laura, thanks for the feedback! We are excited to hear that your event was a success. The reason that we do not currently offer a mobile app is that we feel that people already have too many apps and do not want to download another app for just one night of bidding. We do have some tips on how people can easily access the auction site - http://support.accelevents.com/en/articles/3210709-how-will-my-guests-know-how-to-bid

Awesome customer support, super easy to navigate auction set up

2018-06-13

we were able to raise money by using this software for a silent auction. It was simple to tell people about how to bid and they were excited to keep getting text messages if they were outbid.

Pros

End of auction reports were helpful for checkout without using cc processing thru Accelevents.

Cons

No real issues with any details of software.

Happy User

2020-11-10

In my research to find the right tool, this was the best looking and best priced option. After use, I am still very happy! Seems like a little more development could happen to add features, but honestly I'll be using this product again next year for our auction event either way!

Pros

Also, the response time for the chat feature & fixing issues was very very good.

Cons

Reporting features could use some beefing up.

Fantastic!

2019-09-20

This was the first time I had ever set up mobile bidding and I was anxious!

Pros

My silent auction was easy to set up, easy to customize, and it was easy for our users to navigate/bid.

Cons

The only difficulty I had was in customizing emails to be sent directly from Accelevents.

Great Interactive online event platform

2020-09-16

Overall we had a great event and got a lot of positive feedback from the participants.

Pros

The pricing is pretty well calculated - the per participant per day payment makes it much easier for us to calculate our cost per participant and makes smaller online events possible and affordable.

Cons

The platform does not have a mobile or PC app.

LifeSciences BC Investor Summit with Accelevents

2020-11-05

Pros

The user interface, for the most part, was very quick to learn.

Cons

There are some features that are less intuitive than we would have liked, such as the lack of ability for the moderator of a session to mute other speakers, the strict pixel requirements for photos and logos, and how the Zoom integration didn't go as smoothly as we had hoped.

Hi Aric, thanks for sharing your feedback! We are constantly working to enhance the platform and make it even more intuitive. As for Zoom, their web SDK is very limited and not fully supported by Zoom. We have shared this with them numerous time and hope that they will enhance it in the future. In the mean time, we suggest using our built in video tools! Thanks again, Jon!

Easy to use, customisable and good value

2020-12-07

The only drawback was the fact that we can’t access the bill in real time.

Pros

Easy to use, loads of features, much loved by attendees and amazing, timely, responsive customer service

Cons

Can’t get the bill till 30 days after the event so have no idea how much we have already spent! This is very unpleasant on a tight budget

At this cost (and maybe any cost) you will not find a better supported, easier to use software.

2017-10-10

Pros

- Customer Support is fantastic - Cost is unbeatable - Easy to use for even the most novice computer user - Design of the auction website and mobile site (what end users see) is pretty, clean, and easy to navigate

Cons

Their excellent customer support has already said they are looking into changing this in future updates of the website.

Virtual Hosting Done Right!

2020-12-07

The integrated features and easy to use design suite made this both visually and financially the most appealing option on the market.

Pros

The combined ease of use with all video, payment processing, and hosting rolled into one product made the transition to an online conference easy.

Cons

The only thing that would help could be more "Info" buttons to explain the menus on the administrator side.

Accelevants is AWESOME

2018-09-06

Love it and them.

Pros

Highly recommend. We are small nonprofit that couldn't afford the higher cost options. Also they didn't have a text to bid option. Accelevants is both functional and affordable AND they have really awesome features.

Cons

Sometimes inputting the data can be glitchy; however, their customer service reigns supreme so we have always figured it out together and fast.

Our Accelevents online auction was great!

2019-07-25

We hit our fundraising goals in our one week auction and our bidders really liked the online and mobile Accelevents experience.

Pros

Everything went very smoothly and the whole experience was a plus, plus, plus! One real benefit to Accelevents was their 24/7 online support.

Cons

Sometimes when I was inputting text for an auction item the cursor popped back to the beginning of the paragraph. It was frustrating and slowed me down. However, when I reached out to the Accelevents team, they acknowledged the problem right away and confirmed they were working to fix it. This kind of a proactive response which takes ownership of the problem is very helpful, in my opinion.

Log Home Shows

2020-12-07

We have taken our events to a virtual platform, learning that trying to duplicate in-person event may be wrong direction. So we are addressing that. Key to success is increasing attendee interaction with exhibitor/vendor- that is the #1 concern with ALL platforms.

Pros

It works for our particular environment. We are still building platform and trying to figure it out.

Cons

One spreadsheet showing all data from attendees would be great!

This is a wonderful platform, very well designed, and exceptional for the price.

Pros

The ease of entering my items using a csv file instead of entering each item individually and the price!
