Soapbox Events available on AppExchange

Fresh on the heels of Soapbox Petitions being added to the AppExchange, we’re pleased as punch to share that Soapbox Events has joined it there as well!

Soapbox Events

Through clicks not code, Soapbox Events provides simple yet powerful online event management tools integrated with Salesforce. That combination makes it a rare bird. Just ask Justin Birdsong, Manager or Technology Product Development for the Cultural Data Project:

“Soapbox Events is a really, really excellent tool. I spent about 6 months researching different options and looked at everything from free bolt-ons to paid apps to full-scale customized consulting projects, and frankly, nothing really fit the mold unless we were prepared to spend tens of thousands.”

Memories of 2012 inaugural Soapbox User Summit

Can you believe it? It’s been one year since we had our inaugural Soapbox User Summit, but I still remember April 19, 2012 like it was yesterday. We had all the PICnetters together from near and far. We had Gunner from Aspiration Tech facilitate and clients attend from DC, Maryland, Connecticut, and New York.  

We voted on our own session ideas, broke out into small groups, mingled with the Support Department at PICnet, had a gorgeous location and beautiful weather, and got to learn from accidental techies about their successes and struggles with technology for their own organizations.

“More than a website”: Non-Profit Soapbox, Salesforce and Soapbox Mailer provide powerful platform

Not every organization looking to roll out a brand new web presence has the advantage Holy Trinity Church of Georgetown Pike (HTC) enjoyed: a volunteer leading the project who has been founder and CEO of several DC area technology startups.

Phillip Merrick knew the possibilities of a robust and integrated online presence and its importance to a startup, whether that be a business or a church:

“As a newly formed church preparing to launch our ministries and outreach, we needed more than just a website. We needed a platform to support a digital footprint spanning social media, web video and traditional email marketing, together with an integrated database on the back-end.”

Collect attendee information with Soapbox Events and save it to Salesforce

With the recent release of Soapbox 2.2.20, we’ve added a number of enhancements to the Soapbox platform, focusing in large measure on expanding the power and flexibility of Soapbox Events, our online event management tool that integrates with Salesforce.

The big ticket item, so to speak, is the ability for Soapbox Events to collect attendee information. Now Soapbox administrators can request or require that end users registering for an event provide the name and email address of each of the attendees for whom they are reserving tickets – with that attendee information saved directly to Salesforce.
