The role of digital technology for an events professional today is much more integral than it was even five years ago. The rise of mobile technologies continues to be more pervasive in the industry, and attendees have a greater level of sophistication and intelligence, expecting almost everything to be accessible in real-time.
As an event organizer, you will be no stranger to the available online tools to support your events. In fact, from conception to completion, most of your event will have been meticulously planned, promoted, and managed across a digital platform. Fortunately, as you are consistently on the move, much of this can be facilitated through your smartphone, and there are an abundance of useful apps for managing budgets, comparing venues, and marketing your event from the palm of your hands. Yet, when it comes to the event registration, time and time again, we see organisers resorting to frantically flicking through a clip board with hundreds of names on it, whilst impatient attendees hover over them to see if they’re on the list.
Having regularly organised events ourselves, we too have felt this headache and thought there’s got to be a better way. So with some help from our friends at Origin Partners we have developed an event check in app to make your life (and ours, truthfully) a whole lot easier. The new Get Invited app enables event organisers to quickly and easily check attendees without any hassle, so put the Panadol down!
What does this mean for your attendees?
Once an attendee purchases their ticket for your event, it’s sent directly to their smartphone. Tickets can be added to Passbook on iOS devices and integrated directly with the phone’s calendar.
Attendees simply present their digital ticket at the door, which is scanned by the event organiser to check them in. We have also added a fully interactive map which pin-points the exact location of your event, as well as directions to the venue, so your attendees will never get lost again!
What does this mean for you?
Speed up registrations at the door, by checking attendees into your event as they arrive using your smartphone or tablet. The app integrates in real-time with your attendee list enabling you to monitor attendance directly from your device – no more spreadsheets or printouts!
Another useful feature is that it allows for multiple check-in stations, so you can use multiple devices to log into the same attendee list, enabling your colleagues to scan tickets from anywhere at the event. The app is synchronised across all devices and automatically updates the attendee list for all users.
Best of all, the Get Invited app is 100% FREE. Free for you and free for your attendees, and we don’t put limitations on the number of attendees, or the number of events that can be managed. That means you can use the app to manage as many events as you like.
So there you have it, keeping track of your attendees has never been easier! Download the app for free via the App Store today. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback.
Not an Apple user? No worries, Get Invited is completely mobile friendly, so you and your attendees can access our website from mobile, PC and laptop. We’re currently working on an Android version of the app as well, to be released in the near future, so stay tuned!
