Forest Hill, MD (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
CadmiumCD, a leading technology solutions provider for conference planners and exhibitions professionals, today announced the release of Conference Harvester® 2.0. The speaker data management system was developed in response to industry demand for online document storage with 24/7 access to exhibitor, sponsorship, attendee and speaker data.
“We realized the growing need of conference planners struggling to organize documentation,” said Peter Wyatt, co-founder and vice president of technology at CadmiumCD. “Conference Harvester allows event planners to collect data and store conference and exhibition documents online, while streamlining the collaboration process for planners and speakers."
Conference Harvester 2.0’s intuitive new platform provides software users with dynamic tools to interact and participate. For example:
- Speakers, exhibitors and sponsors can easily upload their required documentation for their specific part of the meeting into a personalized, private portal.
- Meeting managers have complete access to all documents and can even communicate with users through the internal system.
- Conference Harvester 2.0 is customized to accommodate individualized and specialized meeting requirements of the client.
“In addition to conference presentations, many professional trade associations require conference speakers to submit bios, photographs, abstracts, financial disclosures, learning objectives and Q&A’s. With the complexity of organizing conferences in today’s global world, the need to manage an enormous amount of information and large file sizes has become extremely inefficient through traditional means such as email or fax,” Wyatt added. “Conference Harvester is a software solution that is simple, highly intuitive and easy-to-use so our clients can spend less time managing documentation and more time planning their meetings.”
Conference Harvester 2.0’s time-saving features allow users to quickly:
- Publish logos and corporate descriptions with Exhibitor/Sponsor module
- Update agendas automatically with Dynamic Agenda builder module
- Collect hotel and travel information from speakers, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors
- Email groups or individuals directly from the system
- Create online reports and export into Excel or MS Word
“Conference Harvester has saved our staff countless hours of work and a lot of aggravation. All the forms and files we need from speakers are now collected online which makes the process much easier,” said Conference Harvester user Elizabeth Starnes. Starnes is the director of education at American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), an organization that promotes medical education.
