3 Common (And Avoidable) Event App Headaches

Event planners have a stressful time of it and are under a lot of pressure throughout the course of the event and getting to know a new event app platform can be difficult. Ideally, everything during the planning process and the event itself will run smoothly with no glitches. But we know that isn’t always the case. Sometimes issues arise with event apps. Below are three common event tech headaches, and how our event app can solve them:

Learning New Technology

Nowadays, every planner should consider adopting an event app. Learning new tech can be a daunting task, especially for an organisation and their stakeholders. It takes time, money, and effort to learn a new event app platform, its capabilities, constant upgrades, and to understand its worth. For a planner with a crazy schedule, learning new event app software on the fly can be difficult to fit in.

Utilizing the Event App

At the moment, many planners have a Mercedes Benz of an event app, but they are driving it like a golf cart” (Thomson, 2014).

With so many exciting features to add to your event app the choices can be intimidating. And often, planners are under a strict time constraint it makes it difficult to learn which features will suit. This may cause planners to neglect their event app, making it a bit of an afterthought.

Solution:

Our support team are totally committed to learning everything about your event, it’s goals, and your attendees. This ensures that we can provide you with quality advice on how to customise your event app to cater to your audience’s specific needs.

WiFi Connectivity

Nowadays, WiFi is essential. However, a strong connection is not always guaranteed. One of the best parts about an event app is that the majority of the features can still function without WiFi. So, if the network goes down (which is all too common at a conference), all is not lost.

Solution:

Because content is downloaded into the event app, almost all of the features will still work without a WiFi connection once the app is on a device. In case of poor connectivity, rest assured that your attendees can still perform vital functions like view their schedule, take notes, read documents, and much more.
