JUST RELEASED: Event Registration, Ticketing and Payment Processing

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Cool Solutions Group and eSPACE has just released a new “product” as part of our suite of Facility Management Software. This new offering continues to be driven by our passion to “assist organizations to be EFFECTIVE, EFFICIENT and INTENTIONAL with the facilities they have been entrusted to steward.” 

One of the key factors of Facility Stewardship is the utilization of a facility. 

Our facilities are of little merit if they are not used to further the vision and mission of our churches and organizations.”

Our facilities are of little merit if they are not used to further the vision and mission of our churches and organizations. Buildings are designed and built to fulfill a purpose…which must be to accommodate effective and intentional ministry. If that is not so, then why have a facility? That is the primary reason we developed eSPACE

A component of effective facility usage is scheduling and managing events…and allowing people to register for events.  To that end, we are so excited to announce the release of the eSPACE Event Registration tool as part of the Event Management component of eSPACE.  Some of the features include:

  1. Event Registration
  2. Website Integration with Full Customization of Event Forms/Templates
  3. Multiple Venue Process and Workflow
  4. “Wait List” Capability
  5. Multiple Tiers of Ticketing, including FREE and Paid
  6. Check-in using Tickets
  7. Payment Processing of Event Registration Fees
  8. Ability to Sell Products as Part of a Event Registration (i.e. Books, T-shirts, CD’s, etc.)

In addition, we have a bonus that is included…ONLINE GIVING.  We have researched and learned that many organizations prefer to offer their event registration payments with the same online giving component.  Now you can…all within eSPACE.

To learn more, check out this introductory video and contact us to see how our full suite of Facility Management services and products can help you be more efficient, effective and intentional!


Almost every component of your facilities will have to be replaced at some point. Do you have an action plan? INTENTIONAL organizations plan today for tomorrow’s costs. That’s why it’s critical you establish a capital reserve account now. Download our FREE guide to learn more. 

CAPITAL RESERVE PLANNING

Why Digital Signage?

eSPACE has recently started an exciting partnership with REACH Media Network to offer an easy-to-use digital signage solution to integrate directly with the eSPACE Event Scheduler.

Why Digital Signage?  Here are some of the benefits that your church and/or school can realize by utilizing and integrating digital signage on your campus:

  1. Engage Your Audience with Festive Announcements On-the-Fly

The traditional method of designing, printing, and sticking up new posters in time for your events drains the resources of your creative team who are busy enough. Instead, using digital signage will allow you to deliver intentional communications with significantly less effort – and of course, you can continue to update the content, appearance and messaging effortlessly.

  1. Promote Services with Live-streaming 

Your services and events should be an inclusive time, but for many volunteers in the lobby, or the mothers sitting outside the service with their babies, the story can be quite different. REACH has a solution: live-streaming your services in other areas of your church.

Live-streaming your service across your campus will ensure as many people get to hear and be impacted by the teaching as possible, all at the same time. This functionality is also incredibly useful if you hit capacity and need to use an overflow room. By having a streaming solution setup through your digital signage, you can be confident that every person who walks through your doors will have an opportunity to hear your message.

  1. Provide Wayfinding and Welcome First-time Guests

Many first time guests to your church can be intimidated with navigating your facilities and as such, their anxiety goes UP!  Digital signage is a great option to ensure that every guest (and regular attender) feels at home straight away, even if they manage to dodge your enthusiastic welcome team. Wayfinding is a critical component that helps elevate the experience for all guests to your facility.

  1. Encourage Online and Social Media Interactivity

As one of your key methods of communicating your message, your social media campaigns need to be front and center for all to see. A great way of boosting visibility and encouraging interactivity is to showcase your social media posts around your church campus using REACH’s digital signage. This will expand your reach, create excitement, and encourage the congregation to engage with the church through social media.

  1. Keep your Congregation Safe

A disaster is the last thing you want to think about – but in the event of an emergency, such as a fire, you will want to provide your congregation with the best guidance possible.

REACH’s digital signage solution can help you in the event of a problem using their alert system. Digital signage will direct your congregation and guests to the nearest exit and prevent anyone from making the dash to the front door which can create bottlenecks and accidents. Having clear signage will also reassure everyone that the situation is under control, helping them to remain calm.

How does this integrate with eSPACE?

It’s simple! Our Team, alongside the REACH team, will work with you through a seamless process to utilize the API provided by eSPACE to auto-populate your scheduling information into the digital signage system. REACH will also work with you on any special filtering needed, saving you time!

Eventbrite + eSPACE = Incredible Event Registration

eventbritelogoff8000gradientNEW FEATURE!!!

If your church, school, civic group or organization does events where you want people to register or obtain free tickets…then you need to check this out!

In our pursuit of providing the best suite of facility related software applications, we have been working diligently to develop an Event Registration feature.  Next to our COOL SPACE HVAC integration, this has been one of the most requested features from our subscribers and potential clients.

Well…the wait is over!!!

When considering options for enhancements, teams have to be diligent about vetting the right approach.  In this case we looked at developing this feature from scratch…or should we partner. As we performed our extensive due diligence we had to ask ourselves – “Why recreate the wheel?” Why start from ground zero when you can partner with the world’s leading event registration and ticketing application?  To us, this was obvious.  What if we could take the incredible eSPACE application and integrate it with the leader in event registration…Eventbrite?

DUH!!! No brainer!!!

So that is exactly what we have done…here are some of the features of this incredible integration:

  • Easy Setup

Our easy to use integration with Eventbrite will have your events published and out on the web in no time.  Simply authorize your Eventbrite account (which is a free account) and eSPACE will automatically push out your events online when you approve them.

Every venue and meeting space for your events can all be manage through eSPACE.  Create/Edit/Update any and all venues and have them automatically updated in your Eventbrite account.

  • Automatically Generates Tickets for your Registrants

No problem.  Now when you update a date/time of your event or cancel it completely in eSPACE, notifications are automatically sent to everyone registered keeping them informed of your changes!
