It's no secret that OSU is a large and complex place with many policies around outsourcing, security, and credit card processing. This can make managing paid and even unpaid event registrations a bit of a pain.
Let's start by reviewing the types of things we might look for in an event registration system.
Key Concerns & Comparison
Collecting Registration Information
Registration type, meal type, day/event options, group registrations, non-reg purchasers.
Credit cards, checks, payment orders.
Modify registrations, email attendees, print badges, reporting.
Setup costs, per transaction fees, ongoing labor.
OSU Policies & Technology
Approve for business use, FERPA data, single sign on.
