"We are proud to announce our first mobile conference app for the Academic Surgical Congress, which will save our attendees time and paper," said Jason Levine, Vice President, BSC Management Inc. "The resourceful EventPilot meeting app offers so much more than paper and delivers a professional ASC interactive program with many personalization options. The app will help us provide up-to-date content and stay connected more than any ever before."
The EventPilot is a native meeting app that makes paperless events possible. It integrates all conference information including schedules, abstracts, floor plans, exhibitor information, hotel info and bus schedules, and much more into a convenient and easy to use mobile app. Attendees easily build their personal schedule by browsing the sessions from a variety of different views. To minimize paper waste, ASC has stored almost a thousand abstracts on the green mobile app. EventPilot’s advanced filters and boolean offline search help users quickly find accurate results. The interactive nature of the mobile app reaches far beyond the traditional expectations of a paper program. Attendees create virtual “business cards” via built-in contact sharing, tweet directly from the advanced mobile app, and take notes in context of sessions or speakers. Cutting down further on paper, users e-mail post-meeting report made up of all notes and bookmarks they have taken throughout the event.
The EventPilot app is accessible through many of the popular platforms, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Tablets, and Kindle Fire.
EventPilot mobile conference app features include:
The paperless app handles thousands of abstracts and media items which are easily accessible to users even when WiFi is unavailable. Content update works seamlessly throughout the event removing the requirement to print meeting handouts.
Interactive scheduling in the conference app allows attendees to customize their agenda by adding only the sessions they plan to attend from the extensive session list. Users can create personal meetings with peers in this schedule.
Built-in Social Networking
Conference-goers can tweet about pertinent topics directly from the mobile app, which automatically adds the correct event hashtag to the Tweet. All hashtagged tweets display on the meeting app’s home screen so attendees won’t miss any part of the conversation.
Native App - Offline Access
Attendees have quick access to their agenda, session information, and meeting material even when working offline with the unmatched EventPilot native app.
