Wappingers Falls, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Follr, Inc. (http://www.follr.com) today announced the release of event management features enabling Follr users to seamlessly create, promote, and manage meetings, events and Webinars directly from the Follr software. The releases maximizes pre-event productivity and time management as the company continues to improve professional networking.
The release builds on the existing Follr business network and follows the company’s recent “Universal Content Sharing” announcement.
The new functionality provides a way for Follr users to create an event and, having uploaded an attendee list, send out auto-created invitations. The invitations can be edited enabling custom messaging and branding so that attendees receive a personalized and identifiable email. A registration link associates attendees with the event and once registered all attendees benefit from the entire Follr feature set including the ability to tell their story via a Digital Identity Website. Event administrators are able to sort attendee lists by status, tags, links, connections and Follr score ensuring they can analyze attendee networking behavior. They are also able to proactively make introductions using a matchmaker system.
Prior to an event people attending are able to see who is attending, connect with them and request a meeting. Response confirmations are provided through email and the Follr business network. A high level of automation is provided including pre-filled first name, last name and email address resulting in a simple and quick registration process.
“As a people centric open social network it’s important that we continue to add functionality that makes Follr a single entry point for all online activity,” stated Follr CEO Stephen Fells, adding “Event management is just one of several initiatives we are working on to help us better serve communities, businesses and associations.”
Follr is a business network that includes networking tools for individuals and businesses. The software allows any person, company or brand to tell their story using a combination of personal or corporate history, social media profiles (Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare etc.) and content accessible via an enduring, easy to remember domain name. A personally branded Website then acts as an initial point of contact and represents an aggregation of all online and offline information. Collectively the Follr platform represents a more complete picture and story in an increasingly digital world and helps protect and promote brands.
“This is a significant release, one of many we are working on as we continue to develop better business tools and assist people with smarter professional networking,” stated Follr Founder and Product Lead Mark Wayman. He added “With this robust platform we can now better serve not only our existing client base but also expand to new opportunities and verticals.”
Follr is funded through Blossom Ventures and will be announcing several other feature enhancements and business development deals in the third quarter.
