SOA VAS 2011 iPhone Conference App
“We use EventPilot at multiple events and find its utility boundless,” says Kerri Leo, professional development manager for SOA. “We’ve been able to cut back on printing while bringing pertinent and current information directly to attendees fingertips. With the ability to build contact lists, take notes, and bookmark sessions, all event related information is retained in the app. It’s a great learning tool.”
EventPilot Plus apps are dynamic and interactive and improve the attendee experience in addition to easing event organization. Built as a true native app for iOS and Android, the app enables increased engagement regardless of available WiFi access at the venue. Event program changes are easily communicated via data updates to the conference app, thereby greatly reducing or eliminating printing.
“The unique experience for users is not only found in wealth of information available to them in the conference app, but also in the net-working opportunities built into the app. With continuous Twitter feeds, attendees can engage in the conversation and learn from each other” states Silke Fleischer, CEO and Co-Founder of ATIV Software.“With EventPilot, attendees can leave the paper notebooks and heavy guides behind, and still take the education home.”
Conference app features include:
Native Event App with True Offline Functionality
Native Android conference app, iPhone conference app and iPad conference app to ensure best performance, network independence, and device specific navigation users expect.
Sharing and Networking
The Facebook and LinkedIn integration enables attendees to share interesting sessions with their peers and extend the reach for presenters and event organizers. Unique presentation slide tweeting to share key insights with others and integration of Twitter technology to allow easy networking.
Real-Time Updates and Reminders
Attendees receive just-in-time notifications about their scheduled sessions, program changes, and Twitter updates without ever leaving the first screen.
EventPilot Plus supports PowerPoint slides, YouTube video, PDFs, handouts, surveys, live polls, note taking, and more to create a valuable reference app that is used by attendees long after the event.
