In the process of looking for a new event management system, Fohet came across Stova and quickly demoed the website and registration modules. After the initial training with a sales team member, GLOBALFOUNDRIES was offered a free trial of the Stova platform. During the trial, they realized that Stova was already less confusing than their current event management software, due to them setting up an event and registration site in under an hour. The streamlined user interface and ease of use is what sold them on Stova.
“In less than 30 minutes I realized Stova would be the event management tool I needed,” says Fohet.
From the introduction call to the platform trial, GLOBALFOUNDRIES had an Stova team member checking in everyday to make sure things were okay. The Stova core package was the easy to use platform that they were looking for with 24/7 support. When Fohet was setting up his first event domain, he opened up a ticket with support to use a GLOBALFOUNDRIES domain instead of the one that was given.
Within two to three emails everything was solved.
GLOBALFOUNDRIES uses the Stova platform for all of their Technical Seminars throughout the year. With a very user friendly system, they were able to set up websites, registration pages, emails and surveys in no time in whatever language they needed. It also allowed them to give their attendees the ability to modify and cancel registration themselves. With a strong on-site platform, they were able to use tablets for check-in and, with one click of a button, register last minute attendees. The link to Salesforce allowed their team to see all the new attendees in real-time. When it came to setting up their first Technical Seminar of 2014 in Japan, Fohet was able to use Stova to develop a multi-lingual event website and registration page for their Japanese attendees. Having limited space for their seminar they also wanted the ability to approve registrations before they went live. With the registration module’s organizer notification ability, the sales team in Japan was able to see once someone registered, review and send them a confirmation email approving or denying their request. It was a seamless process for them to get all their global teams working together. Following creating the websites, Fohet was able to create all the emails that he needed to send with the marketing module. By organizing emails ahead of time, through HTML or drag-and-drop, he was able to focus his efforts on other aspects of the event.
Moving to the Aventri system, GLOBALFOUNDRIES was able to get on the simple, powerful and multilanguage platform that they were looking for.
“Aventri provided me with excellent support; I never saw so much dedication to make sure all of my questions were answered in a timely manner.”
