Business software reviewer Capterra has ranked Southern California-based Purplepass as being in the top 5 most popular types of event management software out of 400 it lists.

Purplepass helps promoters manage presale of tickets online, by telephone and in person at retail outlets. It personalizes a real-time, interactive assigned seating map for each client and provides sales management tools for tracking metrics, sharing sales and customer data with sellers and creating real-time sales alerts to attract customers.

Comprehensive collection and analysis of data from ticket sales to social media marketing response is another key feature of Purplepass software.

Rather than looking at revenue alone, Capterra rated event management software companies based on the following metrics:

Total customers — the number of organizations using a system

Total users — individual event planners and administrators that access the software through customer organizations and

Social media presence of companies (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+1) including Klout scores and reviews on Capterra about the product and its support.

“We realize that each of these components is imperfect,” Capterra said. “However,” it added, “when combined, the end result is a good representation of overall popularity.”

Only Eventbrite, Cvent and Eventzilla exceeded Purplepass in Capterra’s 2017 most popular list.
