Attend.com, the innovator of
event management software
solutions, today announced Dalhousie University has completed the initial implementation of Attend.com, an online software solution that helps event organizers produce successful events by simplifying and automating event registration, check-in and attendee management. Dalhousie is using the solution to manage events as part of their alumni engagement strategy. The use of the platform is helping support event attendance growth of 40% annually.
"Attend.com's ease of use has made the alumni experience top-notch, which is essential to create a great event, success is all in the details," said Mike Perry, Director of Alumni Engagement for Dalhousie University. "Prior to implementing Attend.com we relied on manual methods for all aspects of event management ranging from registration, attendee management and analyzing post event data. For our smaller events this could take a day and for our larger events this could take days or weeks. The solution allows us to manage every aspect during the event and quickly compile data to ensure we are continuing to improve attendee experience."
Dalhousie University plans to expand the use of Attend.com for more than 200 events in various regions. The primary features include:
- 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.com's event intelligence, organizations are able to analyze the event and use that data to drive and measure engagement.
"Dalhousie is a great example of how attendee intelligence can add value during the event," said John Donnelly III, Chief Revenue Officer at Attend.com. "Dalhousie uses the real-time intelligence during events to send text alerts that notify them when award recipients and other individuals of interest check in at an event. This ability helps to ensure the highest level of attention is paid to VIPs."
Attend.com provides online software that helps event organizers produce high quality events by simplifying and automating event management processes. The company's innovative software eliminates the mundane tasks of onsite event management and has proven to increase attendance, decrease event costs and free up onsite resources. Dalhousie University, Northeastern University, United Way, BMW, and the University of Virginia are just a few organizations that are using Attend.com. The company is backed by .406 Ventures and is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. For additional information, please visit www.attend.com.
