ePly overview

What is ePly?

ePly online event registration is a customizable web-based solution that helps in event management by allowing users to capture attendee details and handle payments in a secure and simple way. Along with these basic functions, the solution further helps users in e-tickets, email marketing, web surveys, form branding, custom reports and badge creation.

ePly allows users to generate name badges, attendance certificate, and charity tax receipts for all the attendees in the customizable template. Individual tickets with barcodes can be generated and sent automatically to all the registered people for the event. The mobile app of the solution can scan the barcode printed on the tickets to manage the check-in process.

ePly offers customized programming support to all its users at an additional cost that allows users to manage pricing structures, restrict registration access and move data between various databases. The solution helps in the creation of follow-up surveys that can be sent to all the attendees to gather event feedback. The feedback can be further analyzed to gauge the success of the event.

With a single change in user settings, it is possible to change the entire back-end into the French language. The solution further allows users to generate registration forms in various languages such as Italian, French, Spanish, Simplified & Traditional Chinese, Russian, Polish, and Portuguese. The product is used by SMBs & enterprises across US and Canada. Some of the major clients are Best Buy, Rogers, Canadian Cancer Society, Nextera energy and Lexmark.

Pro's: Customer Service, Customer Service, Customer Service able to sort the information on screen in many ways able to easily download to excel or 2 other formats they will help you to customize all of your reports and have lots of ready made reports they get back to you every single time and help you completely solve the problem they are very encouraging to "old" people that need more help...like me.. The cost is really low Our members, do NOT have any issues when registering Pictures easily added I shared that the worst thing that I have to do is to make Name badges....and then they did it for us.....on their site they do all the work for you. they look over what you have done and let you know if there are any changes that need to be made and will help explain how to do it...or honestly they fix most of it for you. I was able to engage a sponsor by them helping me with a discount box...which was very helpful. Josh is amazing to work with...has a lot of patience when explaining "stuff", and has a really great sense of humour...and we all need that when working with anything new... they have a great blog that they invite their customers to help out with. Having them build your system works awesome...it is always perfect and everything is so easy....and so worth the small cost. I'm not sure what else to say right now...but I hope that they are in business forever...or at least until I retire... Cons.... If you type to fast when entering the amount of a payment..you get ahead of the computer because you have to hit enter because of an explanation box.... Other than that, I would totally recommend anyone use this system. It works really well, their customer service is very helpful and very responsive and the cost is not expensive and it is a CANADIAN COMPANY.

ePly has provided an invaluable tool for us to grow our events. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Pros
Customer Service - We have an extremely complex registration process for our conference. ePly customer service has exceeded our expectations. They basically held our hands to setup every detail. They also taught us a they helped so we could set up simpler event registrations on our own.

Cons
Nothing - everything has either worked really well from get go or customer service has immediately fixed any issues we've had.

Pros
It is very easy for my clients and customers to use, other than the invoices my clients LOVE this system. For the most part the event registration is easy to set up and use.

Cons
They do NOT create individual invoice numbers that can run through out all my events. Eply does not create invoices that I can download to a file for our accounts process - My clients and customers require invoices that are attached and not included the message of the email. Every time I want certain features in my registration forms I have to ask support to do it. I have the same features in almost all of my registration forms. Thank I can not modify everything that I need to to get the forms and reports that I need and was able to get on my prior product.

Pros
Excellent support, customizable validators and reports. Filling in space now to get to 100 characters.

Cons
Some of the sent emails notifications show up in green, others red. Green would be much easier, as the red always looks like an error. Most importantly though, is that I am dying for a feature to embed the sales fields on our own website. Tito does this, but does not have any of the other features that eply currently has that we like so much (such as schedulable emails). Finally, it would be very helpful to be able to schedule emails relative to the event date and time, instead of calculating those times out ourselves. Thank you!
