The Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) Case Study

How The Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) uses Grenadine Event Software as a management platform that regroups all their data throughout their events over the years.

Years of data collection






The challenge

While organizing events with Grenadine Event Software, COS must keep their data from previous years for future reference and usage. Before using Grenadine, the COS team had to use different software for almost all of their different types of data (speakers, sessions, registration, payment gateway, etc.). Now, Grenadine allows them to access their data through one software.


  • Speaker database and more: COS can now rely on Grenadine to store and consult all the data of their scientific events such as: sessions, talks, speakers, board meetings, sponsors and exhibitors, and more. The use of one software over many provides more efficiency for the COS team. It also allows COS to keep records and update them quickly and easily.
  • Customize Event Website for targeted audience: COS’s needs are specific for the Website content. In addition to the pre-built pages that Grenadine offers, they have the possibility to create customized pages allowing them to present more event information, accommodations, travel information, tourist guides, sponsorship and exhibitors. This customizing opportunity allows them to follow the market’s evolution.

Products Used


  • A main bridge in between events: In using Grenadine, COS can use their events’ data across all of their events without needing to worry about data transfer allowing them to be more efficient in day-to-day operations.
  • User friendly: Grenadine offers all of its features in an easy to use interface which is mobile friendly and easy to navigate through.
