Posted on 5/22/14 11:22 AM by Ashley Wood

If you are considering setting up online registration for your organization or event, you may have some questions or concerns. You may have even come across a naysayer who has cautioned you to stick with the old-fashioned way of doing things. We'll address the common myths below to help you and your group see the indisputable benefits of online registration.


Myth #1:  Not everyone is online.

While it is true that not everyone is online, the overwhelming majority of people are. Even people who do not access the Internet at home may do so from work, the library, or from their smart phones.  This makes online registration the most convenient option for most people.


Myth #2: Our information could get lost.

Amilia stores your data and all of your information is backed up daily. It's in the cloud so you can access it whenever and wherever you are. Traditional paper registration can result in lost forms, typos when transferring from paper to computer, and susceptibility to fire, theft, or other disasters.


Myth #3: Online payments aren't secure.

Amilia's secure payment system allows you to accept credit card payments online without having to worry about sensitive information being leaked or stolen. In fact, Amilia uses the same encryption technology that banks use for online banking. So you and your clients are sure your transactions are secure


Myth #4: Online registration services are expensive.

They don't have to be! Amilia's services start at just $50 per month plus a small revenue fee. This cost includes support, onboarding, automatic updates, automatic backups, secure data protection, and more. We have additional packages to meet the needs of organizations big and small. Plus, integration is a simple, seamless process.


Myth #5: But I won't be able to...

A common misconception about online registration is that it limits your capabilities as an event organizer. It might surprise you to learn that Amilia's online registration allows you to offer sales and promotions, input registrations manually, use your own website, and more.
