We are delighted to welcome the team at Oval Digbeth to our events500 customer community this month. Oval Digbeth based in Birmingham recently acquired 15 acres of heritage buildings in Digbeth that includes the Custard Factory, Fazeley Studios, The Bond Company and Digbeth Arena. The estate totals nearly 1 million sq ft of office, entertainment and leisure space with amazing Events space. Their Co-Founder, James Craig said ‘In the coming years the Oval team will be restoring and re-imagining the estate to provide some of the most exciting spaces in Birmingham all located just 500 metres from the Bullring and next to HS2’.
The team were previously using a competitive solution but found it couldn’t handle their event process from start to finish so they resorted to Microsoft packages to support it. Replacing this with events500 covers the entire event life cycle providing so were pleased to use events500 for everything they needed to save time.
Running a wide range of events from weddings, to conferences and exhibitions, Pavilions of Harrogate manages a full calendar of events throughout the year.
Pavilions decided after another busy year of events that they needed a new solution which could support them in their growth. The solution needed to be able to manage their events, from creating event packages and providing quotes to customers, to managing bookings and resourcing for events of all types.
Their current event management system was not delivering the functionality they needed to manage a varied range of events, as it was primarily developed for organising and operating exhibitions. As their range of events had increased, Pavilions of Harrogate needed a solution that could cope with the scale of event types they were now operating throughout the year.
After assessing a number of events management solutions, Pavilions of Harrogate chose events500 from our reseller Verteda. events500 manages every part of the event process, with a focus on operational efficiency and improving the customer experience.
Fiona Stilborn, Sales Manager at Pavilions of Harrogate, said, “We reviewed a number of events management software packages, however, we found that events500 provided all the functionality we needed as a venue that operates a number of different types of events, whilst still being cost-effective.”
As a business venue with events occurring all through the year, Pavilions of Harrogate wanted a solution that could be implemented with minimal disruption so that no events were impacted as a result of the migration to a new solution.
events500 was deployed in January 2018 across the venue with a smooth transition over from their previous solution.
“We’re extremely pleased with how easily the solution has been to deploy across our estate, and our team quickly adapted after the excellent training from the events500 team,” commented Fiona Stilborn.
events500 is an end to end event management solution, managing every part of the process from the first enquiry to on-the-day event management, right through to gathering post-event feedback. Seamlessly integrating with Microsoft Office and common email platforms, it is an easy-to-use solution, perfect for single and multi-venue properties managing a range of different events.
“We’re thrilled to
have Pavilions of Harrogate on board as a customer,” commented Matthew Prosser,
Sales Director at Verteda. “We look forward to developing a long-term
partnership with the team at Pavilions of Harrogate and supporting them through
the busy events season.”
