Sistic or EventNook: Which is best for event organisers?

EventNook - the Sistic AlternativeRecently, people have been asking whether they can use EventNook in the same way as SISTIC to sell event tickets. EventNook can be a viable alternative to most, although there are some types of events we cannot cater to.

Eventnook logoTo make things clearer, here’s an overview of what EventNook can and cannot do. Let’s start with what we cannot do, so we don’t waste your time!

1. Cannot: Assigned seating

Some events will assign a seat number to every attendee. This is especially common with large performances and sometimes with concerts.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide assigned seating at the moment. We may add this feature in the future.

2.Cannot: Network of authorized agents

Unlike SISTIC, we don’t have the disposal of a network of authorized agents ticket-printerfor ticket pick-up. We are also not going to have one. It simply doesn’t fit with the times any more. Even airlines work almost exclusively with e-tickets these days.

This feature must have been really useful when SISTIC started its phone booking services back in 1991, but really, we don’t think it’s necessary these days. Nevertheless, should you wish to make use of a ticket network, it’s probably best to stay with SISTIC.

3. Can: E-ticketing

We will send e-tickets directly to your attendees’ e-mail address immediately upon receipt of payment. These tickets will contain a bar code so that you can handle them just as easily as tickets printed at an authorized agent, saving both time and money for the event organiser and attendees alike. (You may want to check out our QR code ticket check-in!)

What are you going to do with all the money saved?

4. Can: Save money

Because of what we don’t do, EventNook is a lot cheaper to use than SISTIC. We use a no-nonsense fee structure, and you will always only pay for what you use.

  • EventNook charges no setup fees or any other fixed fee.
  • Pay only for what you use. If you sell 20 tickets of $50 each, you pay only $31. No other hidden fees!
  • It’s absolutely free to sell free tickets on EventNook (and always will be).

5. Can: EventNook is reliable

We take reliability every bit as serious as BMW

When you sell tickets for events, there is often a rush period where everyone tries to book their ticket. SISTIC has been known for outages, especially when large K-POP events hit Singapore.

Of course, you don’t want your ticketing provider to fail you when you need them most!

That is why EventNook is built on the latest technologies to be scalable and reliable. Our cloud-based back end is of the highest grade; other companies making use of the same setup include Toyota and BMW.

But don’t take our word for it. Many event organisers have opted for EventNook over SISTIC already, including Singapore Yacht Show 2014, DBS-HUB Social Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, and Opp Live 2014.

6. Can: Collect audience data

Would you like to have the e-mail addresses of everyone who comes to your event?

On EventNook, you can customize the sign-up form to ask any question that is relevant to your event. You can set mandatory and optional questions.

You might also like to know other facts about who’s coming, such as their age, their favorite music style, their preferred drink or where they first found out about your event. The more you know about who’s coming, the better you can be prepared!

You can ask people whether they would like to opt-in to your e-mail list, and that way you will have an easy way to promote future events to those who have already come to your events before. You’ll build an automatic e-mail list without any extra effort!

Not only that, but with one click, you can save all the collected audience data to an Excel spreadsheet (or on Google Drive), and from there you can export it to other software, such as your CRM or e-mail marketing software.

7. Can: EventNook is easy to use

We take pride in making EventNook extremely easy to use. For both organisers and participants. No matter how large your event is. You can set up your event registration in 10 minutes.

Hard to believe? If you’ve read all the way up to here, why don’t you give us a spin? As long as your tickets are free, you will never be charged anything. Go here to give EventNook a try.

How to add a collaborator to the event

Under the selected event dashboard, Go to Setup >> User Access.

For the sake of simplicity, there are 2 user roles (Manager and Analyst) provided which are to be assigned for collaborators.

1. Manager role is allowed to manage the whole event (such as edit event settings, manage orders, discounts, view reports, etc) except permission on “Manage Collaborators”.
