Event Tech of the Week: @SavAdate
Today, we’re talking about: SavAdate
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
SavAdate allows nonprofit event planners to select optimal, conflict-free dates for their fundraising events and find vendors and service providers to help ensure a stand-out event.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
Anyone planning a nonprofit event, whether it’s for the purposes of fundraising, networking, education or just FUN!
What does your tool help event planners do better?
Effectively plan an event with more information at their fingertips.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
SavAdate is FREE for nonprofits to list their events and free for anyone to browse ALWAYS. SavAdate will also allocate 10% of annual profits to its DIVIDEND FUND. Any organization who has listed events on SavAdate during that calendar year is eligible to apply for a grant.
What is the single coolest feature of your product?
SavAdate is incredibly flexible. It’s a national platform but our powerful search capabilities allow it to filter events by just the criteria you need, including: Date, Location, Type of Event, Specific Event or Specific Organization. SavAdate can also be embedded in third party websites and programmed to show only certain information. For example, a town might embed SavAdate in their website and display only events happening in their zip code or a United Way chapter might use SavAdate to show only the events planned by the organizations under their umbrella.
Anything else we need to know?
We’re becoming part of the evvnt (http://evvnt.com/) network of publishers. After the integration is completed this month, events listed on SavAdate will have the option of being listed on as many as 75 additional event calendars!
This weekly series spotlights a new tech tool that is designed to help make planning events much more seamless. Whether it’s using event software to track every detail from start to finish or mobile apps that deliver content to attendees’ fingertips, these technologies allow planners to divert their stress to more critical issues like deciding which napkin color looks best.
