Gather Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • Customer Service, price, and rapidly growing features
  • Gather is super easy for customers to use, guests love it, and the contracts are simplified. I wish we would have started using it long ago!
  • Generally the contract feature was fine. We liked executing contracts on line even though the contract tool did not have all of the client info required
  • Gather is super easy for client's to understand, easy to get estimate approvals, and easy to collect payments. I really like that you can see timestamps of when clients have opened emails that we send through Gather, it lets us know they've at least reviewed the info so we can adjust when to send for a follow up. It is very easy to add and adjust menus and pricing.
Cons
  • I dislike the the application for my phone. I always end up using the website over the application and I think we could find value in the app, just not currently.
  • I can't think of any cons. I think there is always room for improvement, but nothing sticks out to me as a problem. I did, however, have some difficulty integrating my bookings calendar with my google calendar, but almost immediately, the awesome customer service team helped me out with it.
  • It's pretty complicated to use and takes quite a bit of training, which can make it hard to collaborate or inform part time staff or contractors on event details (or have them help with invoicing, scheduling, etc). There is also not an ability for clients to "sign" contracts, only approve proposals. For an industry that can be pretty litigious, I wish they emphasized their event policies a bit more.
  • Some items we would like to have control of for adjusting, such as how to tax and what menus are taxed, and how those menus can be classified, rather than calling support. We would also like documents uploaded to be available on bookings that were created before they were uploaded - currently you can only upload from the drop down list the documents that were uploaded at the time you created that specific booking, so not all the documents are there.

Helps to keep my event information organized and shared with my team

I am the General Manager and Event Planner for a very busy restaurant. Gather helps to keep me organized, in touch with clients and staff, and keeps all of the information I need in one place. I love that clients can get in touch with me through a Gather link on our website, and I can convert a lead into a booking very easily. Keeping up with so many people and events is exhausting, but Gather makes it much easier for me to have all necessary information and conversations with clients in one place. I also love that I can have my clients "sign" event contracts through the website, send deposits, and put a card on file. My team can also access conversations and documents so that they can stay up to speed with what is going on. But I think my favorite part is that the bookings calendar can be synced with my google calendar across all of my devices. :)Customer Service, price, and rapidly growing features

Why I switched our multi-unit Restaurant Group to Gather

Review Source: Capterra

Gather has been instrumental in holding our company's private event and catering management at the top of the game. In an ever changing hospitality world, it is important to stay above the game. Gather matches our standards and has developed a relationship with us that can not compare to any other software of the kind. 1. Web-based and matched my monthly price I was paying for a sole license. 2. As an upper level management, I can see all of my units/catering divisions on one calendar and filter as I need. 3. They input menus for you and will make changes ¿ no extra cost. 3. They offer free one on one continued training when I have new managers with the system. 4. Much easier for my managers to input information, more user friendly. 5. I don't have to "submit a work order" to talk to anyone. I'm on a first name basis with a group of professionals that care about giving service the right way. 6. They are fast with turn around on jobs and needs.

From the customer/client experience, it's wonderful. Great, professional design, easy to review contracts/policies, make payments, and correspond with questions. From the admin perspective, I like that it keeps me organized. There are so many moving parts to events and it's so nice to have everything organized in the calendar, have each event represented, and every event have it's own page to store details, connect with the client & staff, track & collect payments, create and send policies to review, request payments (can be custom or based on pre-set pricing menus), and store details for your team and/or the client (i.e. event floorplan, vendor info, etc). Gather's customer support has also been amazing! They always respond to questions in a timely manner and provide webinars on a consistent basis as well.

Beautiful, Efficient Rising Star disrupts old guard, saves times

We tried Total Party Planner (trial) and Caterease (6 months) before finding Gather. I'm so glad we did. From the first interaction the sales and support staff have been professional, helpful and going above and beyond. All our data was uploaded over the Christmas holiday (2015) and we've been booking clients ever since. As one of our clients wrote "it's beautiful and effective at showing me exactly what matters." Everything is online, and even works from mobile devices. Team communication is seamless, and best of all I actually got my chef's using it because it's just like email. There is now a one-stop shop for everything related to events. For our small catering company justifying the expense was hard at first. Now, it's no question I save that much every month in time emailing clients and sorting through details. The BEST part: Gather is under active development. They just got funded big time and have been rapidly rolling out new features. I have no doubt they will be competitive with giants like Caterease in all categories very soon. And when they roll out a "required items" checklist or a menu costing/ordering interface you better believe it will be intuitive, functional and highly integrated. Right now (Feb 2016) Gather is primarily geared toward restaurants with rooms; however, we have had no trouble adapting it to our off-site catering business (we have a fleet of mobile wood-fired ovens). If you are a large hotel this may not be the best solution... yet, but just ask. They are incredibly responsive.
