San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
As one of the leaders in mobile-first event registration, Events.com partners with Parallel 6 to integrate its engagement management technology, Captive Reach. With the integration of Captive Reach, Events.com will provide an end-to-end registration solution that does more than just reach audiences. Captive Reach provides a content management system that allows the event organizer to send out strategic, targeted messages in real-time, gather insights and manage the entire life of an event from one, easy-to-use platform.
“The choice to integrate Captive Reach into our mobile-registration platform was a strategic decision to align ourselves with an innovative technology company that understands the importance of keeping participants and event planners engaged on the device that they hold nearest to them. By offering our engagement tool in the palm of a user’s hand, we provide ongoing connectivity for event participants and their event planners,” says Greg Spillane, COO of Events.com.
The partnership with Events.com will include an integration of Captive Reach’s core features such as push notifications, geo-fencing, gamification, augmented reality, image recognition and a content management system that includes a library of analytics and insights on app users. In addition, Captive Reach offers a social media setting that allows app users to instantly share event experiences on major networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The technology can also be leveraged for partnerships with corporate sponsors that want to offer mobile advertising to app users.
“We love to see Captive Reach executed to its full potential. The partnership with Events.com will allow all of the platform’s modules to come to life through the user experience. I’m especially excited to see how gamification and augmented reality will play a role for endurance events. Users can expect to build workout plans, watch interactive training videos and be rewarded for achievements unlocked within the app,” says Parallel 6 President and CTO, founder David Turner.
Events.com fosters the communication between event organizers and event goers, making sure that all parties are informed and engaged. Captive Reach will only serve to enhance the connections and endurance event experiences.
