Generally a great tool.

Generally a great tool.

Pros

Love how you can subscibe to an ecal and autmatically it sits within your diary and calendar. Also great for those teams and sports to ensure you can track the games and they slot into diary.

Cons

From time to time the time period for the subscribed calendar can be off and not reflective of your time zone. Would be good to have a website to select them all.

Great tool for data growth

Reviewed on 2023/07/06

Generally a good experience with 80k data records generated for the business.

Generally a good experience with 80k data records generated for the business.

Pros

The functionality of sync to calendar is great for our users - with live updates made as event dates get updated regularly. For the organisation the feature has generated a huge amount of data to really power the growth of our database over the past few years.

Cons

The price is fairly high for this kind of platform - and is based on user numbers so you tend to get penalised for success. Account managers are focused on getting clients to drive user numbers (due to the increase in price). This can be jarring when suggestions to increase numbers often focus on driving existing database to use the platform - this has no benefit to us as an organisation and would result in extra costs for us to effectively acquire data we already own. Needs to be a more nuanced approach from account managers.

The experience has been great.

The experience has been great.

Pros

Guests can sign up for reminders about events they are interested in and not forget. They can also opt into other categories they may not have known about.

Cons

It is a niche area for our company. For the guests that have lots of events this is perfect and have not found any cons.
