“People don’t just want a mobile experience. They want unprecedented convenience."
Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) December 14, 2016
Socious, a leading association management software provider, released their newest software feature, the Attendee Center, this week. The Attendee Center delivers an exceptional digital event experience across smartphones, tablets, and computers for all attendees and can replace standalone event apps that often cost organizations tens of thousands of dollars.
“People are always on the go when they attend events, so they need event information that moves with them,” said Socious’s CEO Paul Schneider. “But with cost of mobile apps ranging from several thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, an app doesn’t make sense for most events. Since the Attendee Center has the key elements of mobile event apps, it provides the same service without the financial pressure.”
The Attendee Center's digital experience is easy to set up and use. Event information and brand colors are automatically pulled from each organization’s Socious-hosted website or online community. Businesses and associations can then further configure design and customize information, including sponsor advertisements.
Anyone who is registered for an event and logged into the system can access all the event’s essential information in the Attendee Center. They can also customize their experience from any device, including mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
In the Attendee Center, conference-goers can:
- View the full event agenda to add or remove sessions from their personal schedule
- Review a comprehensive list of event emails sent to them so important information is never lost or accidentally deleted
- Take notes on sessions directly through the Attendee Center
- View speaker information, search for other attendees, and use networking tools to connect with experts and peers
- Use surveys to submit feedback and ideas for future events
Since Socious’s Attendee Center is built on top of the Socious platform’s event and conference management toolset, the functionality in the Attendee Center is beyond what is provided by many other mobile tools, including full-fledged apps that have limited integration points with attendee and event data.
“We really dug into what our customers and their event attendees wanted,” said Joshua Paul, Socious’s VP of Marketing and Strategy. “We found that people don’t just want a mobile experience. They want unprecedented convenience. That drove a lot of the functionality we built into the Attendee Center.”
One-click access to event emails and a ‘Notes’ tool are two features providing the convenience attendees crave. Event attendees can access any event email they’ve been sent from the Attendee Center, even if they’ve deleted it from their regular inbox. They can use the Notes feature to take notes on sessions right in the Attendee Center. All notes, even those made on different devices, will be combined into a single document organized by session.
“It goes one step beyond what your attendees expect,” Joshua continued. “It’s that ‘wow’ factor that so many of our clients are looking for.”
The Attendee Center is fully functional on all major internet-enabled devices and is included in Socious’s MemberCloud association management and online community software at no extra charge.
