"The software was a great balance between what was customizable and what was hard
wired. Essentially, once you set up your event, you will be stress free."
- Peter Walker,
Executive Assistant, BGCC National
"We really wanted to emphasize the power of social media and needed a unique platform
to showcase it. We discovered Pathable first and then realized how easy it would
be to register attendees with the integration with RegOnline. It made sense"
- Bob Etheridge,
Conference Manager, SocialMediaPlus
"Everything can be managed so much better with the RegOnline and Pathable integration.
Plus, the innovative technology sets us apart from our competitors—providing value
for the entire lifecycle of our events is something we'll always be interested in."
- Ken Bauco, Conference
Director, BNA Events

Active had the bells and whistles and was reasonably priced."
- Patrice Johnson,
Resource Development Unit, University of Minnesota Extension
"The RegOnline team was efficient from all sides: sales, implementation, support,
training and development. The full package is fabulous. The amount of detail that
goes in to the product from all aspects of the company shows as they are always
there for the customer. Any type of problem resolution happened quickly and efficiently.

- Ellen Perry, Sr.
Associate Director, University of Chicago Alumni Department
"In short, I am extremely pleased with RegOnline and if ever asked "would I select

group. It's clear to me that the team at Active Network definitely gets it!"

Chair, District Event Resource Team, Rotary District 5450 Colorado

Boys and Girls Club of Canada
Non-profit uses easy, web-based software to reduce time spent
on administrative tasks for its national conferences
Every two years, BGCC holds a national conference for staff and volunteers from
all clubs. Approximately 350 people are onsite to share information and resources,
attend seminars, and get to know others across the movement. From the conference
organizers’ perspectives, it was difficult to manually process hundreds of registrations
RegOnline Partners with Pathable
SocialMediaPlus and Business News Americas (BNA) Events break
new ground by using innovative networking tools at their 2010 conferences
As attendees register for events through RegOnline, they automatically receive an
invitation to join Pathable’s social community. Pathable’s easy-to-use, online community
and social network helps attendees (and sponsors) meet and communicate with each
other before, during and after conferences.
University of California, San Diego Continuing
University office relies upon easy-to-use online event technology
to manage conferences
The CME office offers conference registration services for approximately 60 educational
events each year. Since 2003, UCSD CME has been using Active Network’s RegOnline
product to register attendees for each conference and manage the events.
University of Chicago Alumni
The University of Chicago Alumni Department saves time and increases
efficiency with a new online registration system
UCA’s previous system was a customized solution that couldn’t do the upgrades and
changes that it wanted. Plus, the department built out its Alumni Event form each
year; there was no real-time reporting; and users could not extract information
from the system. UCA was relying on other individuals to download reports and it
was time consuming to pass reports to different individuals in each of the departments.
The department needed a better way to get information quickly to its users.
University of Minnesota Extension
Extension division coordinates 50 program teams with online
event management software
Prior to choosing Active Network, Extension was using another software vendor who
proved to be unreliable and went out of business. Extension started shopping around
for other providers. “Our priority was of course to find a company that was stable,”
mentions Patrice Johnson of Extension’s Resource Development Unit. “For the system
itself, we needed it to be accessible, easy to use and affordable. Active had the
bells and whistles and was reasonably priced.” With over 10 years in the industry,
Active also had the staying power and dependability Extension was looking for.
University of Colorado School of Medicine
Office of Continuing Medical Education Upgrades to Automated
Software for Event Planning Services
Prior to 2008, CME was using its own internal software program to manage events
and conferences. The system was ten years old and antiquated, making simple processes
tedious. "It was difficult to use," mentions Carolyn Wieber, CME Conference Coordinator.
"Even pulling records was impossible." CME also was looking to remove itself from
the billing process. Having to handle payments directly incurred risk for the university
and required Carolyn and her team to put the office under heavy lock and key, in
addition to taking up lots of valuable time. "We wanted the payments to be automatic."
Rotary District 5450 Colorado
District 5450 Rotarians go the extra mile with online registration,
event execution and superior client care from RegOnline
Since 1905, Rotary International has brought together business and community leaders,
as well as dedicated volunteers from around the world, to help those in need. With
over a million members, they are one of the largest service organizations in the
world. Gary Fletcher is chairman of the District Event Resource Team in Rotary District
5450 in Colorado. He oversees a volunteer group that provides event support for
the District Governor. These events range from the annual district conference to
the training seminars. Gary needed an online solution that could register attendees
online and help him run his event from beginning to end.
The Calgary Kiwanis Music Festival
Canadian festival customizes RegOnline’s event management software
to fit its unique needs
The Calgary Kiwanis Music Festival is a tradition that brings people of all ages
together to share their love for music and the speech arts. As one of North America’s
largest amateur competitive classical music festivals, the Calgary Kiwanis Music
Festival gives nearly 11,000 amateur musicians and speech arts performers the opportunity
to perform, compete for scholarships, listen to others, and be judged by national
and international adjudicators.
University of Washington
The University of Washington selects RegOnline's event management
software as preferred online registration system
The UW Conference Management (UWCM) is a division of Educational Outreach at the
University of Washington. The Conference Management team has over 50 years of combined
experience in the professional management of conferences, symposia, workshops and
Union of Students
The NUS has been using RegOnline™ to register attendees
for events since 2006.
The flexibility, ease of use and funtionality of the system means we are able to
manage registrations and offer our event attendees housing options quickly and easily.
Most importantly as our needs have grown so the RegOnline™ system has evolved
to meet them. This means we are looking forward to working with the team at RegOnline™
well into the future and our users have been able to become "expert" users; quickly
and efficiently setting up and running events via the system.

Buy or Build
How to choose the best technology for your organization
As your organization grows, you are challenged with finding smart ways to scale
your operations without cutting into revenue. Most people realize very quickly that
they need to ditch manual processes and integrate technology solutions to absorb
the workload to maintain their standard of efficiency and customer service. That
leaves you with two choices: Do you dedicate resources to designing, building and
maintaining an in-house software system? Or do you partner with a third-party provider
who offers a ready-made solution? Each option has its advantages and disadvantages
and it’s important to consider every angle since this is one of the most important,
and revenue-impacting, decisions your business will ever make.

Rethinking Event ROI: How Technology Can Save Live
It's time for associations to face the unfortunate truth; live events have become
a poor performing communication channel. In a digital world defined
by flexibility, interactivity and measurable results, most association events remain
rigid, impersonal and, let's face it, ineffective. So, no one should have been surprised
when events came under fire as the economy dipped. Yet, many organizers were surprised.
And the pull back on events was dramatic
