Cvent Upgrades Planner Experience with New User Interface for Event Management

New Blue Release Interface Makes Cvent's Feature-Rich Online Event Management Platform Easier, Faster and More Intuitive to Use

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 19, 2014-- Cvent (NYSE: CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, today unveiled a completely redesigned user interface the Blue Release at its annual Corporate Meetings Summit in Las Vegas.  The new interface for Cvent's event management platform provides streamlined navigation and a greatly enhanced workflow for building and managing events.  The Blue Release will be made available to all Cvent users in the third quarter of 2014.

“Cvent has become the event management technology leader by listening to planners' needs,” said Brian Ludwig, senior vice president of Sales for Cvent. “We have built a robust platform with deep and varied capabilities over the past 15 years. This platform facelift brings a new simplicity and elegance to the user interface while maintaining the same rich functionality. We've already received great feedback from clients who've tested the Blue Release, and we believe all Cvent clients will be very pleased with it.”

The Blue Release adds elements like drag-and-drop editing, interactive charts and live updating to empower users to complete tasks with fewer clicks. The more responsive interface runs faster and also offers greater visual appeal.

“Having a cloud-based platform has made it very easy for us to roll out frequent planner-driven enhancements,” said David Quattrone, chief technology officer of Cvent. “Cvent's objective is to set the bar for event technology. The Blue Release has been a substantial development effort focused on advancing design and usability standards and marks an important milestone in the ongoing evolution of event technology.  The bar has been raised.”

To ensure that Cvent's Blue Release meets client needs, the company held more than 50 user focus groups, spent six months to designing the interface and an additional 18 months of development and testing.
