We have always claimed (quite rightly!) that the EventWorks platform delivers an end-to-end platform for venues, agencies and suppliers (from CRM right through to invoicing), but these ends are getting longer and longer as we integrate with other established software providers to provide a seamless and fully-integrated system.
At the front end, several of our clients are now integrated with MailChimp, which allows users to download live client data into this popular e-marketing system. The best bit of this integration, however, is the uploading of “opens” and “clicks” data from these campaigns back into EventWorks’ CRM, so you can see who has read your online messages and follow up accordingly.
The Xero accounting platform is one that we have recommended to many of our new clients and the feedback from all who have switched has been very positive. We have also delivered successful integrations with Sage and Quickbooks, with all of these APIs (Application Programming Interfaces to you and me!), enabling supplier and client invoices to transfer automatically (with an approval process, if required) from EventWorks into the accounting platform. This integration makes post-event reconciliation far simpler and gives the operations teams access to payment status etc without bugging the finance teams; (Amen to that!).
Other recent additions to our family include an integration with Signable, a legally binding online e-signature platform for contracts, which cuts out that irritating “scan and send” legacy of the pen and ink era, and integrations with Current’s stock control system, allowing sales and operations teams to see live data and reserve stock from their production or equipment hire warehouses.
All these integrations extend the value of our core operating system to our growing family of users and we keen to discuss how we can integrate with any of the above platforms or to look at new integrations that will add further value to the EventWorks system.
