Features

Event Guru Software is designed for the small to medium size conference and event venue. We will never try to be everything to everyone…but we will always strive to be everything to the venue that can’t afford pricey, cumbersome software that requires staff just to manage it. We’ve made our software to be SIMPLE, AFFORDABLE and COMPREHENSIVE. Let’s explore.

SIMPLE

Event Guru Software is designed by people who have walked your pathway. There’s no complexity, no need for an annual users conference or two week training. In fact, it’s actually easier than learning your ABC’s. Each screen is intuitive. The fields are user-friendly and information can be easily duplicated to save you time. Best of all, there is no software installation on your venue’s main servers. Event Guru Software is a web-based product designed with responsive technology, allowing you to use it on your desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Feeling a sense of peace?

AFFORDABLE

When we set out to create Event Guru Software, we were well-aware that many products exist in the marketplace. We were also aware that the existing product price-points are out of reach for many small and medium size conference and event venues. Awareness is good and it helped us to develop something just for you. Our fee model allows for ongoing monthly or annual payments, making the investment much more manageable on your budget. The bottom line…we won’t break your bank. In fact, you’ll save so much money you can build a hot yoga hut…or not.
