The comparison guide to two great software solutions for booking agencies.

Choose the artist booking software you won’t outgrow.

There’s a reason Gigwell is voted the #1 Artist Booking Software for agencies on Capterra. It’s an end-to-end solution to make your booking admin effortless, with enhanced capabilities for when you’re ready to scale.


Gigwell is a cloud-based platform that was designed to manage and automate the booking workflows of booking agencies or independent touring artists. Gigwell’s essential booking tools are designed for agencies who need software that grows with them—the software has top notch customer support and fully customizable features to take on any agency workload.


Stagent is a gig management tool to track gigs, payments, and calendars. With less capabilities for customization, Stagent helps organize booking to-do's but leaves full end-to-end integration up to you to manually setup via Zapier or creating new fields from scratch. Stagent is a great basic solution for early stage agencies or artists with basic requirements.

What sets Gigwell apart

Exclusive Global Venue Contacts Database

Access to an international venue powered by Google Maps. Fill open dates and increase your tour revenue all while incorporating venue radius clauses and capacity restrictions.

Custom roles

Create custom roles for every type of internal or external team member, so everyone can access the information they need. These views are powerful in the Gigwell iOS/Android app, where any team member can download the app and find the information pertinent to their role, even offline.

Pre-built template library

Contracts, advancing, invoicing, itinerary templates, and deal cards are pre-made for you to jump right in.

Custom agency branding

Brand all communications with your agency’s logo and branding, including contract templates, emails, payment portal, and signature portal. Your buyers will hear from you, not Gigwell.

Reliable e-signature portal

Gigwell's e-sign portal simply and reliably tracks down signatures for you without requiring you to coach your buyers through the e-signature process. It accurately reports when signatures are complete, instead of just reporting when the e-signature reminder email was opened.

Integrated contacts

Bulk import contacts and sync with Gmail to automatically find the contacts you need, without typing a single email address. Tag and group contacts so you can remember every single connection.

Interactive EPK

If an EPK is an artist’s first impression, Gigwell’s EPK shines. Showcase your best content while keeping your EPK fresh. Your content updates automatically while still maintaining full editing control. Your artist fanbase is front and center with linked social media follower counts, an integrated gig calendar, embedded audio/video players, and even a Bandsintown integration.

Embeddable EPK

Easily embed your visually-stunning EPK onto your website or Facebook page. When you only have a few moments to make a good first impression, don’t waste it on slow-loading attachments. Talent buyers can play built-in Soundcloud tracks and YouTube videos without leaving your artist EPK. You can also include links to a Tech Rider, Press Kit, and other downloads.

Built-in booking form

Book more gigs with an EPK that can capture booking requests directly via a built-in form. Talent buyers see your artist’s availabilities at a glance and send inquiries that you manage directly in your booking dashboard.

Embeddable artist roster

Gigwell helps you create a beautiful, professional booking page and electronic press kit (EPK) for each of your artists; then embed them directly to your agency website or Facebook page. The best part is this can all be managed directly from your Gigwell dashboard. You no longer need a web-developer to make changes on the fly.

Automate ticket collections

Predict show outcome, create agency-branded market pace reports and view robust sales analytics data with the touch of a button. Ticket counts and ticket scaling tiers are necessary features for agencies.

Smart Analytics

Track efficiencies, monitor growth, identify potential bottlenecks and make decisions based on your artist booking agency's data. Monitor artist settlements and merch tiers. Export analytics and reports for deeper research.

Freedom to join or move on from Gigwell

Import pre-existing data or export your data to switch to another booking software tool anytime. Your data belongs to you, so you should get to export it anytime.
