123Signup

Event & association management for membership-based business

4.18/5 (116 reviews)

123Signup overview

What is 123Signup?

123Signup is a complete software solution for membership-based business deployment, with emphasis on automating common tasks and streamlining performance. An all-in-one platform, 123Signup actually encompasses two integrated products with Association Manager and Event Manager modules. Features spanning both provide support for the whole registration process from automating enrolments, membership renewals and payment collections, to tracking signups and communicating with contacts. The two modules are available separately and on varying pricing structures, while identical options for secure credit card processing are charged per transaction or with no additional fees direct to merchant providers.

On the Association Manager side, a raft of online tools for automating management enables organizers to spend more time growing a membership base rather than administering it. Enrolment and renewals can be integrated into an existing association website, adopting established branding, while allowing members to join or renew during event sign-up. Here 123Signup’s Event Definition Wizard makes event definition of all kinds easy with tools for building promotional web pages supporting multiple pricing tiers, branded registration pages with multiple session options and constraints on double bookings. Market events with email and social sharing options while scheduling automated renewal notices, reminders or invoices.

123Signup’s Event Manager software, ideal for meetings, conferences, webinars and training events, simplifies pricing and feature sets. Quickly gather all the required attendee information pertaining to simple and more complex sessions, while leveraging tools such as registration by approval to evaluate participant qualifications prior to confirmation. Again automated, template notifications can be set alongside email marketing options for reminders, newsletters and more personal correspondence – all from within the system. Customized payment options provide secure choices on how fees or donations are collected while attendee support extras like post-event surveying and CEU (Continuing Education Units) Tracking are also possible.

123Signup is as easy as 1...2...3!

Review Source: Capterra

I've used 123Signup since 2007 and overall, I've been more than pleased with the platform. In fact, over the last several years they have made numerous improvements that have made the user experience even better. I also find that their customer care team is quite responsive.

Pros
Functionality of the platform is excellent, and it incorporates standard features such as calendar and social shares. With respect to memberships, it allows the user to be as simple or as thorough as necessary. Events are the same, with simple and advanced events.

Cons
Sometimes when creating mailers, a system bug occurs and it doesn't save the content. It doesn't happen often, but unfortunately it does happen from time to time. The 123Signup team is aware of the bug.

I have really enjoyed using 123signup for our association. It has helped us automate a lot of our processes and has helped us save an extraordinary amount of time and effort so we can focus more on our member services. My experience with 123signup's customer service has been excellent! Any time I have a question or need to make a shift to our organization's structure in the system they have been quick to respond...a huge selling point!

Pros
Our association needed software that could accommodate our complex membership structure and 123signup delivered on this need. The system makes it easy to pull membership reports, attendance reports, financial reports, and it also helps us with distributing certificates for members who attend our events. The event set-up is easy and straight forward and meets all our needs. Overall, 123signup is an excellent product.

Cons
At times it can be difficult to determine which report to pull when seeking specific information. That said, once you figure it out it is smooth sailing there on out. I would also like to see a better email system with the ability to send attachments as I don't believe the email system allows that at this time.

Pros and Cons on Use of 123Signup Over Many Years of Use

Used occasionally for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-10-10
Review Source: Capterra

Overall, I have been pleased in my use of 123Signup, although the clunky appearance does not appeal to many of my colleagues, who invariably prefer to use Eventbrite for event mailings. We used 123Signup for our newsletters many years ago, but my colleagues switched to Constant Contact and we have since stayed with that vendor for a very long time. Our organization does continue to use 123Signup to manage our membership database, which isn't that demanding a task, so overall, our use of 123Signup has been quite limited in recent years.

Pros
1. Very easy to understand and use. 2. Even with changes, fundamental approach has not changed over the many years that I have used the software, which minimizes the time expended on use. 3. The software has sufficient flexibility to permit me as an administrator to override certain functions like membership payments and event selections. 4. Maintenance of past events in the archives permits repeated use of the same event templates, which is very convenient. 5. There is excellent variety of features to incorporate almost any variation of event registrations desired.

Cons
1. Although very functional, the "look and feel" of the template convey a clunky appearance, as contrasted with the brighter and more modern look of Eventbrite. 2. When sending out emails to members, there is no way to find out prior to mailing which and how many members are included in the mailing based on the filters used, and even after these emails are sent out, the report identifies only the number of members who were targeted, with no further information on which ones were sent the emails.

Reliable, functional time-saving software for volunteers

Review Source: Capterra

Customer service is knowledgeable and quick to respond when questions arise or special requests are made. The fees for the services and special requests are reasonable, and turnaround is excellent.

Pros
The 1-2-3 SignUp software combines previous membership/mailing list/contact software with event planning (registration, online payments, sign-in, and education/attendance tracking) to minimize the workload on volunteer board members while providing numerous added membership benefits (member education history, 24/7/365 access to certificates of completion, online CC payment option, etc.).

Cons
Some of the email formats (particularly those automatically generated by the software) are as flexible as our organization would like, and not yet available in HTML.
