Discover The Power of Event App Plug-Ins

Sometimes your event calls for a little ‘extra’.

It’s why we’ve developed a series of event app plug-ins to give your app that custom feel…without the custom price tag.

Ready-to-go whenever you need them, CrowdComms plug-ins are the easy way to give your attendees the features they need for a compelling event experience.

1. Coffee

Want to give your attendees great hassle free coffee? Try our new coffee ordering plug-in.  Attendees can request coffee straight from their mobile device.

Whether they want a skimmed flat white, long black or soy latte, our clever little widget will deliver requests direct to the event’s on-site barista (who manages orders from his or her device).

Great coffee, ready in an instant, means attendees avoid the hassle of long lines and make a quick return to the event action.

2. Exhibitor Meetings

  

Need a comprehensive appointment feature? We’ve got what you need for accurate scheduling that streamlines exhibitor-to-attendee meetings.

A dedicated portal allows attendees to book appointments direct from their mobile device.  A daily appointments screen shows which exhibitor is available and when.  Attendees simply choose their time and book.

Exhibitors also get direct access to their appointment schedule that updates in real-time as attendees make their booking.

3. Digital Passport

Remember the days when attendees carried around sorry looking bits of cardboard to get visitor stamps from exhibitor stands?

We’ve made the card and stamp redundant and replaced them with smart QR codes and meaningful data.   Our passport plug-in makes participating in exhibitor incentives a breeze.

At exhibitor stands attendees tap the event app icon and scan the QR code for an instant stand ‘check-in’.  With their details registered, attendees are immediately in-play for whatever incentives, games or challenges the exhibitor and/or the event is running.

Attendees can chart their visits via a handy progress bar at the top of the screen.

Takeaway:  event app plug-ins are the easy way to custom fit your event app so it gives attendees, exhibitors and sponsors an experience they’ll remember.

Why a Meetings App Means Smarter Meetings

Think an event app for a meeting is overkill? Think again.

Many people associate event apps with large gatherings, however, event apps are scalable. So whether you’re organising a multi-national conference for 2,000 attendees or a board meeting for 7 people, the event app is always fit for purpose.

Easy to download and simple to navigate, a meetings app is the perfect way to ensure any meeting runs on time and on point.

Here’s why:

1. You’re More Organised

A meetings app can be downloaded onto any mobile device. Like an email linked calendar note, the app will tell you exactly where your invitees need to be, when and why.

Unlike a calendar note, the meetings app will also provide access to maps and travel information.   Important documents (including agenda and supporting material) can be uploaded onto the app.  Which means there’s no need to waste time and money on printed material.

Want to keep invitees updated on changes to agenda items or attendees? No problem. Real-time alert notifications mean everyone has immediate access to important information when they need it (so if you’re stuck in traffic you can let attendees know about the delay right there and then).

2.  You’re More Accessible

A meetings app allows attendees from all over the world to participate in your meeting. Real-time functionality allows attendees to be involved in the discussions as they happen.

3.  You’re More Efficient

It can be hard to keep meetings on time and on track. Discussions can easily get diverted away from the key points. A meetings app will help ensure the conversation stays focused.

Agenda items can be marked off in the app as they’re completed. You can even allocate time to each item. Minutes can be recorded in-app for an accurate account of the discussions and commitments. Attendees can also get access to the minutes in real time.

Want a verifiable summary of people’s opinion on key items? Run a short in-app poll at the end of the meeting.

4.  You’re More Informed

Distributing post-meeting information and action points is easy and quick with a meeting app. Data from meeting polls or Q&As is simple to collate and present in easy to read reports.

Any post meeting questions or queries can be posed via the app for instant access by every attendee. If you need to include additional stakeholders in the meeting notes, that’s easy too. They can also download the meetings app and get access to all the information relating to the meeting.

Takeaway

A meetings app can organise, run and distribute post-meeting information. It’s a simple tool that keeps everything in one place. Plus it makes meeting notes accessible 24/7 via attendees’ mobile device.
