Here's where we let you know what has been going on in the world of Priava.
Got a question about Priava? There’s a good chance the answer is below. If you’d like to discuss anything, get in touch today!
Yes, Priava users can access the system anytime, anywhere from any flash enabled computer, tablet or mobile device with an internet connection.
No, just an internet connection.
Priava is moving to HTML5 in early 2019. As part of this move, Priava will be responsive to Tablets, and a mobile application will be made available for all users in the latter part of 2019.
Priava has been designed with the end user in mind. Work across multiple windows & tabs, access real-time availability using the interactive chart, capture and track opportunities, coordinate all of the details for upcoming event bookings, assign user tasks and customise your own reports.
Priava is a highly intuitive application. It follows a logical process based on best practice standards, so it is easy to understand, with new users finding it easy to pick up. That said, to ensure you get the most out of the system, we offer remote training sessions for all of our new clients. These training sessions are designed for system super users only and are tailored to your business needs including key information about settings, configuration and reporting. Once your super users have completed the initial training, they will be able to share this knowledge with other staff members in your organisation. The reason we limit training to super users is that often staff have questions about business processes, and the super users are best able to answer those questions once trained on Priava.
Yes, as part of a subscription to Priava’s Core Software & CRM module, users have access to a suite of more than 35 core reports. The reports feature has been designed to be intuitive and easy-to-use in order to enable super users to design their own custom reports based on these existing core templates. This includes being able to change the appearance of the report to suit your organisation’s branding guidelines and add your logo, as well as the ability to filter and/or display certain information to suit your specific needs.
Yes, if you want to use your own reporting system, you can easily export data in CSV or XML format or integrate with your preferred platform using our API.
Cloud computing is a software delivery model in which resources and data can be accessed on-demand via the internet. The term “cloud” is used to demonstrate the fact that information is readily available anytime, anywhere and users do not need to be in a specific location to gain access to it – it’s almost as if it is floating in the air above you. Be sure to spot the difference between real and fake cloud by reading our eBook titled “De-mist-yfing the cloud”.
Priava is hosted on Amazon Web Services to ensure your data is safe and that connection to your database is reliable. This eliminates the risk of any downtime or data loss and ensures business continuity. Currently, Priava has locations in the US, EU, Australia and Canada. Your data will automatically be located in the region closes to you, or on request.
Priava is fully compliant with current and best data security practices ensuring your data is very secure within our environment.
Priava is releasing a new feature in May 2018. This feature, known as Data Privacy, will ensure all users of Priava will be able to configure settings to assist in compliance with GDPR. As GDPR is a new regulation coming into on 25th May 2018, we recommend using a third party to assess compliance. The good news is that if you use Priava’s Data Privacy Module correctly, your data lifecycle in Priava will be GDPR compliant.
Yes, you are able to create a financial export which is compatible with most major accounting packages.
Yes, Priava’s REST API has been developed following best practice guidelines to facilitate seamless integration between Priava and other IT applications including, but not limited to, web forms, accounting packages, inventory and marketing systems. Some common integrations that have been implemented by our existing clients include NetSuite, Salesforce, Campaign Monitor, MailChimp Xero and SAP.
Priava is offered on a subscription basis using the Software-as-as-Service licensing and delivery model. The cost of your subscription will depend on what type of venue you are, how many user licenses you require and how many add-on modules you need. Please contact sales to discuss further.
Every user needs a license to access Priava. Clients that subscribe to the Advanced Permissions module can apply different roles and permissions to these licenses so as to restrict what information individual users have access to based on their role within your organisation.
Priava has been split into a range of modules so that customers only pay for what they need. Core Software & CRM and Events & Bookings are the foundations for Priava. In addition to these modules, clients can add-on Catering, Inventory, Master & Sub Events, Packages, Advanced Permissions, Online Calendar & Enquiries, Online Bookings, Sandbox Environment & API.
Yes, you can add or remove licenses or modules at your annual renewal as required. This ensures you are only paying for what you need.
Yes, clients who subscribed to Online Bookings can configure external bookings sites so that they can give people other than their Priava users the power to check availability and create bookings including venues, event details, catering and inventory requirements and process payments all on their own.
Priava’s development team administer system updates including enhancements and new functionality throughout the year. The major benefit of the cloud-based system is that these updates are administered remotely and are available for all users to begin immediately so there is no downtime in business hours and no additional costs.
