Description

The Event and Conference Management Software (ECMS) is a complete solution that enables clients with the need to: schedule meetings and events across the University of Miami, create seating diagrams, take registrations, and interact with attendees. ECMS also includes the University's master calendar platform.

For support, please contact the Office of Conference Services at: (305) 284-5742 or ecms@miami.edu.

ECMS is composed of four different applications:

  • Event Management System (EMS): A scheduling system that enables you to coordinate meeting and room scheduling, event scheduling, and classroom scheduling (for those areas not under the Office of Classroom Management). It also provides a reporting database with real-time utilization statistics to help service providers make informed real estate and facilities decisions. Utilizing a centralized computer-based system, EMS allows administrators to successfully manage their spaces by enabling control of the ordering, communication, and billing with service providers. In addition, EMS allows for the customization of space restrictions and flexibility, enabling you to request space on the go via a mobile application.

  • 7 Point Solutions: This seven-point credit card payment page connects the University's secure payment gateway directly with EMS—providing a seamless payment experience for customers and automatic write back of payment transaction data for your reservations and events staff.

  • Localist: Localist is the University's master calendar, providing a total view of what is happening at the University of Miami. Community members can promote their events by submitting them to the site. Localist is also the primary registration platform for any group looking to host a simple and user-friendly registration form.

  • All Seated: This is the University's room and seating diagram software for venue managers. It boasts a number of excellent features including customizable objects, social distancing tools, templating, seating charts, guest check-in, 3D abilities, virtual walk-throughs, and shareable interactive layouts.
