Alexis Fritchy

Best event registration check-in platform

2017-09-27

Hands-down the best event check in product I've ever used.

Pros

It's amazing for large events or small events and minimizes lines. The interface is super user-friendly and would recommend to anyone.

Cons

The only con of this product would be the integration to other registration platforms and manually uploading lists.

The Boomset Way: A Single Solution for High School Hackathons

2019-05-08

When we set out to organize MatadorHacks, a 24 hour high school hackathon, we knew we wanted to take a different approach, one that aimed to create a better experience. One of the biggest challenges we faced was how to track our participants and how to ensure that all our sessions, panels, and meals accommodated them in the fairest way possible. When we reached out to Boomset, it became immediately apparent that the "Boomset Way" was one in which our vision could be realized with Boomset's platform.

Pros

Boomset's online portal and iOS app from the very beginning presented a clean interface allowing our staff to quickly access necessary information, settings, and guest lists.

Cons

Boomset's various products, features, and integrations make it hard to choose any other event solutions provider.

Donna Gallivan

The ease for setting up and using this product was great.

2018-05-14

Not having to pre-print all the name badges before we went to our event. Dragging all of them up to the event and then having some attendees not come and you have wasted the money printing them.

Pros

Our attendees were happy with how quick and easy check in and badge printing went for our event.

Cons

The only thing I can think of at this time is the reporting. Once I got it figured out, it worked great.

Great Attendee Registration Experience

2018-08-17

Using Boomset removed the headache of printing and alphabetizing badges, gave us multiple branding opportunities, and allowed us to up our game when it came to the attendee registration experience.

Pros

The extra functionality of being able to ask custom questions at check-in averted a last-minute headache for our registration staff.

Cons

The software is easy to use but not necessarily intuitive.

Boomset was amazing. We've used other registration software and this was by far the most intuitive.

2017-07-12

Eliminated a registration/check-in bottleneck. Lower staff cost as the check-in process is self-service.

Pros

Extremely intuitive interface.

Cons

I wish there was an ability to receive on-site payment for walk-ins.

Superior Customer Service to Match Excellent Product

2015-12-01

We expected a complicated process since we were using a 3rd party system to track our registrations and then would be importing the list into Boomset; however, when we imported the list it was very easy to use and the reporting available to us were more than we expected.

Boomset has greatly improved the check-in process of our guests.

2017-11-30

Pros

Downloading guest lists after the event is easy to do as well, especially with the report builder feature that allows you to select what guest information you'd like in your download.

Cons

Guest list downloads used to include a lot of superfluous information, but the new report builder option has taken care of that.

2018-01-11

Pros

Cons

I do wish they were integrated with Cvent, that would be a huge help! It can be tricky to have to manual add new people from Cvent when there are many people waiting to check-in.

Perfect fit for my organization

2019-02-05

Using Boomset has brought our badge printing process into the 21st century. It has not only streamlined registration (and reduced lines!) for our members, but has made it possible for staff in the office to help manage events that are hundreds of miles away, enabling our on-site staff to focus more on the event itself.

Pros

This software has a simple but very efficient user interface. I love how few clicks/taps it takes to get from one screen to another, and how simple troubleshooting (usually) is.

Cons

There are times when their updates have bugs themselves, which interferes with our use of the app at events. There is also a lag time when you click on the check-in button before you can print another badge, which can be frustrating when you've got a line backing up. Setting up the Zebra printers can also be challenging if you aren't familiar with all the printer settings lingo.

Boomset Saved My Life

2018-11-30

On the last day of an event in October, I deleted my entire guest list with check-in data by accident.

Pros

It is very easy to use and works well for our needs.

Cons

Sometimes updates are made to the system and we are not made aware of them. We use Boomset three times a year for our events. If an update happened between events, I may not know I need to change my process until the day of the event. Which can be stressful.

Boomset worked very well for our needs. The app was able to give us exactly what we needed.

2017-10-27

Reduced traffic bottleneck Reduced waste of unnecessary name tags Added professional-looking appearance

Pros

We were able to implement our use case with very little customization. Everyone was very impressed with Boomset's ability to handle large volumes of check-ins, as well as the slick appearance of the app.

Cons

Although the app itself was smooth, it took a while to set up a multiple printer configuration and we relied heavily on our own internal resources to complete this step. (Hint for those of you using multiple Brother-QL-820NWB printers: make sure the label cartridge is loaded properly into the machine and that the printer is set to the home page or the app won't "find" the printer. Very strange.)
