Ungerboeck for Venues event management software launched in EMEA

Comments Off on Ungerboeck for Venues event management software launched in EMEA

After the recent launch at the International Association of Venue Manager’s (IAVM) event “Venue Connect!” in Portland, Ungerboeck Software International (USI) has now launched Ungerboeck for Venues in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Although new to the industry as a whole, Ungerboeck has been working on creating, testing, and proving this cloud-based solution for some time.

Ungerboeck for Venues is available in three editions and web-based as well as easy to learn and use. Thanks to a dramatic reduction in entry price, the offering allows every venue, no matter what its size, to afford Ungerboeck’s popular event management software that is already used by more than 40 000 users worldwide. It caters especially to smaller and midsize venues’ needs and is pre-configured based on industry best practices. Thanks to its flexibility, venues can add functionality as their business grows and their needs change.

The “Community Edition” of Ungerboeck for Venues is designed for venues with 10 or fewer users. It is perfect for space management that goes beyond simple event booking as it offers basic booking, account, contact, and event functionality.

The “Flex Edition” is suitable for venues up to 30 users. It helps venues manage events from first contact to final invoice and offers all of the features of the Community Edition, plus CRM purpose-built for venues, greater event management, invoicing, and payments. Additional functionality is available on an “a la carte” pricing basis.

Ungerboeck Software International’s CEO Krister Ungerboeck is happy to put such a powerful tool within reach of a growing number of venue managers:

Our belief that every venue deserves a world-class booking calendar compelled us to create three editions of our software, picking the features most needed, based on industry best practices.

When being interviewed for IAVM’s publication Facility Manager, he explained:

I really do think the next step is for the mid to small-size venues to graduate into a more intelligent systems approach to manage their customer data and operations. There is a clear advantage to really having a tight grip on your data across the venue and the efficiencies and business insights that come with that.

He is convinced that marrying up attendee, customer, operational and financial data can lead to game-changing insights for venues:

This broader, single-platform approach makes it virtually impossible for details to fall through the cracks. It is also necessary to have a single, unified database if you are going to pull truly useful information and reports.

For organisations that require even more power, USI continues to offer the “Enterprise Edition” covering the needs of larger venues.
