“We probably make money with the system. The cost of registrations through ABC is more than offset by the time saved in terms of human capital, as well as the paper saved, postage saved and value of the image we put forth to our clients.” Kep, The Diocese of New Jersey
"If you look at the amount of money it cost us to have ABC Signup, it's equivalent to four days of salary for us. We were spending much, much more time than that on the process before ABC Signup."
Educational co-op seeks registration solution
Before finding its registration "match" in ABC Signup, NWIESC did everything related to event administration "by hand" – entering data from phone calls, faxes, e-mails and other sources into spreadsheets and Access databases, and then doing it over again for the next event.
Must be multi-talented, reliable, able to add value
Dr. Carrie Cate-Clements, NWIESC's Director of Professional Development, noted the ease of marketing events with ABC Signup. "It's nice to be able to send the link to the [event] calendar, along with a message to learn more about a particular workshop," she said. "The other beautiful part about it is that registrants might see other events on the calendar that they would like to attend, events they had no idea we were offering (resulting in additional registrations). It's brilliant marketing-wise because I don't have to have a lot of information to distribute – I just send a link."
"As long as I already have a template, it's five minutes of my time (to post a new event). Printing out sign-in sheets and certificates is easy. The invoicing function is terrific. It's so wonderfully comprehensive and user friendly. It's so approachable. I don't know what I would do without it, honestly.”
