Friendly interface at a great price

2018-09-21

They also have a lot of information on their website (although it could be more searchable) but emails and phone calls were instantly addressed.

Pros

I loved the sub-items to group activities/sessions occurring at the time and the ease of use to add sessions.

Cons

Attendees only show up in the public list if they have taken the time to create a profile and approve it for public viewing - which meant that 3 of my 135 attendees showed up on the app. As far as I could tell there was not way to override this - so I created a pdf file and added it as a document.

unparalleled customer suport

2017-11-14

It's more software than I need but if I ever expand my conference, I know that the functionality will be there for me

Pros

I move the location of a session or change a name of a panelist and, in less than 1 minute, I've published it to a mobile app and to my website.

Cons

Good start but needs improvements

2019-05-15

It was ok, but there were a lot of bugs. I don't think I would use your software again unless there were some major improvements done. I think you have something good here, but maybe wasn't right for our type of event which was very simple.

Pros

Canadian company Initially it seemed to have what I needed. See notes below Some items worked well

Cons

We had to try several different ways to sell tickets - this was for an activity choice.

Intrinsic to my Work Day

2019-04-12

Pros

Checking the grid and seeing if we made any errors in double-booking has truly made our jobs easier.

Cons

At times the reports are not my favorite, but I can still work with them.

An invaluable cloud based conference planning system

2014-05-11

Grenadine also manages the data ;space, time, people, and equipment - highlighting and alerting one to conflicts in real time and providing the method to reassign a resource easily to prevent any issues.

Robust platform at a great value

2016-10-20

On the backend, the usability is sometimes a bit clunky (i.e. a lot of clicks to change a description) and lacking bulk import / editing capabilities for all fields.

Grenadine offers a great mobile app for attendees.

2016-12-05

Most of my experience with Grenadine has been with configuring the mobile app. It not only displays the convention schedule in a searchable format, but makes it easy for organizers to add pages of other information such as a code of conduct or sponsor list.

Pros

Great mobile app for publishing info to attendees.

Cons

Schedule item tagging paradigm doesn't work and leads to tag proliferation.

Pros

The software is really ease of use and the customer service, always eager to help in case of need :)

Nothing I disliked, but as a suggestion, maybe add in more design templates for the site for people who are not comfortable with coding

Their Customer Support Makes Grenadine a MUST-have

2016-10-26

There has never been a time I've wished for a feature that they didn't either explain how to use it, or then write it into the core program.

Pros

It's easy to input, scheduled, and coordinate talent - as well as alerting me to when guests are double booked or booked too closely together.

Cons

Certain features aren't used by our organization, so it would be nice to remove those modules, however it does leave it open for us to explore those features in the future.

A Great Product That Improves All the Time!

2016-12-06

The publish to Web feature for schedule and panelists is extremely easy and will always keep your event attendees up-to-date.

Pros

It's feature-rich and flexible.

Cons

Because it is so feature-rich, it can be a little difficult at first.

I also like the flexibility available when contacting participants.

Easy to use, pro results

2019-06-21

It's incredible how simple and intuitive it is to use the platform, even for those of us who are far from being IT experts. The end result is amazingly professional. It also helps that the tech team are always on call to sort out any problems fast and effectively. This is the second year that we're using Grenadine for our festival, a free event open to all, organised by fans for fans. Even for ourselves who scarcely use the more advanced features it's hugely useful in practical terms and what's more helps us present a very professional face. It has impressed many participants who organise congresses and professional events.

Pros

The ability to produce an extremely professional-looking program and interface with quite low IT skills.

Cons

Nothing. All the features we have used have worked superbly.

Great user-friendly tool for non-profits

2018-11-16

Pros

Having the conference website + the registration feature together is a plus for a small organizing team with less event planning experience.

Cons

Some features were not transladable. Features sur as sponsors and speakers lack a bit of flexibility (e.g. categories of sponsorship should be an added option, categories of speakers should also be an extra option).

Great platform, fantastic support

2017-11-21

Pros

- The general ease of setting up an event page so quickly - Aesthetically, it looks really professional

Cons

It would be good to have the functionality to have group discounts for multiple bookings, instead of having to have a separate ticket type for group bookings, as this sometimes caused a bit of confusion for customers.

Grenadine was an essential tool for scheduling and organizing the program for a large-scale event.

2017-11-16

Pros

Grenadine gives a clear view on what is possible, both time- and people-wise and prevents from double-booking people/rooms. The customer support was absolutely amazing!

Cons

The learning curve in the beginning was a bit steep, and the documentation could still be improved a bit.
