What NOT to use EventCX for

EventCX was designed by professional speakers to manage your speaking business. It is not intended to do everything. 

Here are some common things we see users trying to do with EventCX that would be more effective with a different tool: 

  1. DON'T use EventCX as your CRM (customer relationship manager).
    It's very valuable to tie contacts to events the way EventCX does, but it is not a full-featured contact manager. EventCX integrates with several popular CRM apps to eliminate double-entry. 
  2. DON'T use EventCX as your accounting software.
    EventCX tracks the services and products you sell to clients, but does not have the features you need to do the accounting for your business. EventCX integrates with popular accounting software to eliminate double-entry. 
  3. DON'T use EventCX as your only calendar.
    Enter into EventCX anything that affects your booking: holds, confirmed events and personal days that should block the calendar. Don't enter personal daily appointments that would not block your booking calendar and prevent you from taking a job that day. EventCX integrates in both directions with your daily calendar, so that you can see your booking calendar and your daily calendar in the same views without double-entry.
