When we launched Parallel Project Training in 2009, we wanted to streamline bookings for our project management courses using on-line registrations.
It was important that we found a reliable and fully featured event management package to support our business. We did extensive testing with several event management systems. This included Joomla, Wordpress, and several SaaS event registrations systems. We finally settled on Event Registration Pro Calendar from Joomla Showroom for Joomla.
In particular, we liked the ability to
- Quickly establish a wide range of events in different locations.
- Self-registration, using simple but customisable forms.
- Customise the e-mails sent to delegates and administrators.
- Set different prices and discounts, for groups or early bird discounts.
- Develop custom modules to integrate with our course description pages.
- The ability to integrate used registrations with JomSocial and LMS system.
Since we adopted Event Registration Pro we have run many hundreds of events with thousands of delegates. Event Registration Pro has given us a robust framework to run and administer these events without difficulty. Having all the data in one place has been made our course administration easy.
We have upgraded each time a new version has been released and have seen the extension develop over time. We are particularly excited about the new features on version 4. Especially the rich snippets, the enhaanced course description pages and streamlined checkout cart. We will be testing it on our development site in the beginning of the new year.
We would like to thank Mike and his team for their on-going support and would recommend Event Registration Pro to anyone running an events based business.
