Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 23, 2013 -- omNovia Technologies, a global leader in high quality, rich-media and interactive webinar and webcasting solutions, announced today the official release of the Presence Manager tool within the omNovia Webinar Pro and StageToWeb platforms. The Presence Manager allows moderators to automatically poll attendees at random times throughout the presentation in order to ensure they are alert and paying attention.
By leveraging the Presence Manager, moderators can launch customizable pop-up messages at periodic intervals in order to track and prove ongoing attendee participation throughout the duration of the event. The message of the pop-up, as well as the frequency, randomness, and duration are all able to be customized. For example, you can ask a simple question such as “Are you there?” at random intervals to test attendee presence. If the attendee responds, you will know that they are there and paying attention; if there is no response within a designated amount of time (configurable), the message will disappear.
“As a company that specializes in continuing professional education (CPE), we are always looking for innovative tools to guarantee our clients receive valuable results from our educational webinars. The addition of omNovia’s new Presence Manager feature gives us the ability to ensure, with proven reports, that attendees are alert and truly receiving the quality information we deliver, which plays a vital part in enhancing their firm’s overall performance,” said Jack Surgent, Chief Executive Officer of Surgent McCoy.
Full detailed reports are kept on the number of popups that were asked as well as the responses, if any, received by each of the participants. Additionally, a presence score is generated and added to the reports for each attendee.
This is an excellent tool for continuing education programs to qualify participants for certification or education credits based on their participation throughout the entire duration of the webinar. Additionally, other industries can leverage the Presence Manager tool to measure the engagement or attentiveness of their audience.
