Eventsforce announced today a new suite of on-site event management tools, including a mobile app, a self-service check-in and badging solution and an attendance recording app for events and sessions. The new products have been designed to improve attendee experiences, while helping organisers save time and get the data insight they need to make more informed decisions on the day.
“The on-suite family of products address some of the biggest data management issues organisers face around their events. All three offerings are integrated with our registration solution, which means organisers can eliminate the time-consuming and frustrating process of data transfers between systems – improving accuracy and security too. Dealing with one centralised platform will also give them a clearer picture on all their event data,” said George Sirius, CEO, Eventsforce.
Eventsforce Mobile is a fully integrated event app which allows attendees to personalise their event experiences. Features include personalised schedules and session details, one-to-one networking, push notifications and maps. Organisers can also use the app to drive audience participation and session engagement with live polls, note-taking, surveys, resource centres and social media. The app also monitors important behavioural analytics, including page visits, document downloads, banner ad clicks and marked favourites.
“Our user-friendly interface makes it easy for organisers to design and launch their event apps quickly, with the integrated system pulling in all their app data in a matter of seconds. Automatic synching with our event management platform also ensures that any last-minute changes to sessions, rooms, speakers or any other event information will always be reflected on the app,” continued Sirius.
Eventsforce is also helping organisers become a lot more proactive in the way they manage the check-in and attendance recording process around their events. Last month, the company unveiled Eventsforce Kiosk, a self-service solution which provides attendees with a more efficient way to check-in and print their badges on-site. This same seamless experience is now being extended to sessions too with a new attendance recording app.
The Eventsforce Attendance app allows on-site staff to use iPhones and iPads to quickly mark off attendees on registration lists with easy-to-navigate tools and an integrated QR/barcode badge scanner. Full integration with the Eventsforce event management system ensures all registration data is up-to-date, including walk-ins. It also provides organisers with access to important live performance metrics, including session attendance figures, no-shows and room capacities.
“Having this kind of information while the event is happening can be critical for decision-making on the day. For example, the app tells you how many people have already checked-in to a session and how many are expected to show. This information can then be used to encourage more people to attend the session through push notifications on the event app or social media,” continued Sirius.
