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 five 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.

  • Social Tables: An event-management platform that lets you create seating diagrams and plan events and large meetings. Working with EMS, Social Tables allows you to plan the details of your event seating and add to the EMS event registration.

  • Attend: An event management and engagement platform that helps teams manage events and interact with attendees. Attend allows for customizable event registrations and invitations and has mobile accessibility, in addition to collecting data and providing analytics. Attend also allows for registrations of events that require payment, and will provide a seamless experience and automatic journaling of funds to the proper Workday Program.

  • 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: This new application is currently under development, and more information will be shared with the University community in the coming months. Localist will be the University's master calendar aggregator. Event content is pulled in from EMS, Engage, and 25Live to provide a total view of what is happening at the University of Miami.

Cost

  • No costs are associated with this service for setup, use, or maintenance (with the exception of credit card processing fees, where applicable).
