Online Solution Simplifies Event Management and Unlocks Engagement Data
Boston, MA — February 4, 2014 — Attend, the innovator of event management software solutions, today announced Attend for Universities, an online software solution that helps event organizers produce successful events by simplifying and automating event registration, check-in and attendee management. Universities such as Northeastern University, Providence College, University of Virginia, Dalhousie University, and Elon University are using Attend to organize alumni meetings, fundraising receptions, speaker series, club meetings, award receptions, admissions and recruiting events, personnel training, Homecoming and reunion events as well as student life activities. 

"A major focus of our university is to implement a data driven engagement strategy," said Mike Perry, Director of Alumni Engagement for Dalhousie University. "Attend's easy-to-use software provides powerful analytics that result in invaluable insight into the effectiveness of our events. Rather than relying on subjective metrics, we now have concrete stats to more precisely engage constituents. Automating the time-consuming event tasks give us more time to focus on the data, which is no doubt the future of alumni relations." 

With Attend, universities are deriving these benefits:
  • Reduced costs with rapid event creation - The intuitive interface allows anyone to create online registration with secure payment processing in minutes and without training.
  • Increased attendance with simplified attendee management - Event managers quickly and easily add invitee lists, send email invitations and event reminders, instantly print name tags during check-in and create surveys to solicit feedback.
  • Increased attendee satisfaction with mobile features - Share event details on tablets and smart phones, check-in attendees using an iPad, and receive text alerts when VIPs arrive.
  • Event Intelligence - Data driven engagement is becoming a top priority for universities this year. Without a data driven strategy, event planning and analysis is based on gut feeling. With Attend's event intelligence, organizations are able to analyze the event and use that data to drive and measure engagement.

"The power of our solution is in its simplicity. Attend for Universities has been designed to be effortless for the event organizer. Its simplicity masks the logistics complexity of event management, automating pre-event, during the event, and mundane tasks. In fact, anyone can create an event easily and without training using the intuitive interface," said Greg Skloot CEO and co-founder at Attend.

Attend for Universities is available today. For new customers, the first event is free of charge, pricing begins at $2500.
