Ever wonder if it would be better to build your own event management solution internally instead of buying a third-party solution? While you may be able to build solutions internally, before making the decision, it’s important to closely consider the risk-reward equation and how your business may be impacted in the long term.
There are five things you will need to ask yourself to ensure you have a flexible, secure and efficient solution.
- A custom solution requires extensive planning and development, which means you need to hire (or pull from other departments) programmers, web designers and possibly consultants.
- All customer support, bug ﬁxes, or new developments will need to be handled by your team as well as in-house training and support documentation. All of these services need to be prompt and efficient to maintain a high standard to your customers. The only way to accomplish this is to keep full-time IT and development employees on staff.
- You’ll also need to host your system on a dedicated server. Owning, operating and maintaining a dedicated server can be very expensive.
- You’ll need to license the software for your server’s operating systems, plus purchase database software and budget in maintenance costs.
- The biggest hurdle in building a solution yourself is handling security compliance. PCI Level 1 Security Compliance is the highest level of data security available to businesses today and is absolutely crucial to keeping your data safe (i.e. customer information). Obtaining this level of compliance can cost thousands of dollars.
Online software technology has advanced. Third party solutions can provide a comprehensive solution with all the standard functionality, while still being able to customize functions to suit your speciﬁc needs. Some things to keep in mind when considering the beneﬁts of using a third-party solution:
- The third party is responsible to meet the deadlines you set. You’ll increase your chances of having your system up and running sooner rather than later.
- You can work with your provider to develop best practices, training, support and more in a language everyone at your company can understand.
- An outside provider will have more resources to dedicate to research and development, ensuring that your product will continually advance to match changing market conditions. Systems built by outside companies also tend to be more ﬂexible, more scalable and easier to use since they specialize in building and maintaining event management solutions.
- Third parties usually offer a wide array of automated processes that can reduce your workload. From email conﬁrmations to seamless integrations with existing, and future, databases, the options not only give you more control, but streamline processes from A to Z.
- The importance of online security can’t be overstated. When you adopt a system from an experienced third party, you don’t have to go about getting PCI Level 1 compliance yourself. That means every transaction, every credit card number and every piece of customer information is secure.
