Pros
I'm new to this App, but the set up of my venue was very easy thanks to the great assistance from the IVvy team. 10/10 for customer service!

Cons
One thing that could be improved is directing the user how to get more exposure on the Marketplace .

Overall Ivvy is a great program to manage our events and we are very happy with the service!

Pros
I find Ivvy to be very user friendly! Everything is easy to find and manage and it is very easy to quickly update your storefront and venue information.

Cons
I would love a section on the Function Diary where you can add in important information such as public holidays, school holidays, promotions running etc. Information that is relevant to our venue that is important to know when quoting and checking availability.

I purchased IVvy about 10 months ago for our wedding venue business. Their sales team is truly great at what they do, I felt so optimistic about the product. Once I was put in touch with the woman who was going to assist with setting up our account things went downhill quickly. She was very unprofessional and disorganized. Fast forward two months and my software still wasn't completely set up and a lot of things promised in the sales pitch weren't actually available "yet". I emailed several times trying to get a booking issue sorted out with no response and finally got in touch with the sales employee to find out my only other contact had been fired! No notice to let me know or pass me off to someone else. I ended up having a few meetings with someone else to finish setting up my account (this was then 3.5 months after signing up) which mainly involved fixing mistakes from the first employee. I was then instructed to email support if I had any issues which was a complete joke. I was in touch with support about 4 times. The final straw was when I asked them how to edit my invoices to show GST instead of HST as we don't have HST where I live. Support actually emailed me back asking ME to send them information on Canada's tax systems. I've since found a different system which costs $40/month, is super user friendly and most importantly looks much more professional to my clients. This software is an absolute waste of money, save yourself the headache and look elsewhere.

Pros
Their sales pitch! I just needed a system to manage bookings, send out invoices and basically keep track of everything which this software manages at a bare minimum.

Cons
Very difficult to make quick edits or changes to bookings. A lot of things (like the integrated website calendar) aren't customizable which was frustrating. Very difficult to get the proper information off of IVvy for accounting purposes.

I use iVvy daily and once you learn the little quirks of the program (as with any software) it is overall very easy to use. The link with the online market place is also a handy tool.

Pros
Copy features are great and save a lot of time, as does the edit multiple option. Packages can be set up pretty easily and are easy to use. The regular training session as also a big plus. Would love if there was a favourite reports/columns option for views/reports you run regularly.

Cons
Some of the information that you expect to automatically update from one area to another do not do so, this means there is a fair bot of manually correcting the information. No revision/update/version numbers that show on BEO's to easily distinguish between the versions. Splits for revenue over the packages. Invoicing feature is not fantastic, it becomes quote difficult if you have a slightly more curly invoice to amend.

Response from iVvy


Thanks for the review Stacie. I'll get one of the team to give you a call and show you how you can finalise the BEO to then produce a changelog. Additionally we have a "Virtual BEO" that is an ipad version where you'll be notified by uncompleted tasks of changes to an event.

Cloud based management with ability to access from all devices. Allows me to check availability and process inquiries during meetings with prospective clients.

Venue setup can be intensive however once the time has been taken to complete this effectively the benefits are seen long term.
