The Event Check-in system allows event organisers to quickly create a guest list, check guests in at the event and analyse data afterwards to improve future events. It allows companies of all sizes who organise events to save time and money and enhance their brand by making an instant impression when guests arrive. The app, which is sold for an introductory period as a package with an iPad and an enterprise grade iOS Certified wireless QR code scanner from SocketMobile, combines the best of consumer and enterprise technology to revolutionise the event process.
Using the secure Event Check-in portal, event organisers quickly and easily create an event and a guest list. In one click a unique QR code for each guest is generated which can then be included in emailor printed invitations. The cloud-based SaaS portal is accessible online from any location, making organising events on the go possible. Anything changed on the portal will automatically be updated on the iPad app and vice versa.
At the event guests are quickly and easily checked in using the QR scanner. Automatic SMS triggers can be set up to send a text message to a guest’s host when they arrive, ensuring VIP guests are looked after properly. Multiple iPads and scanners can be connected to the app to seamlessly scale up for larger events or those with multiple points-of-entry.
“We wanted to create an app that was simple to use and would cut down the admin of organising and analysing an event, streamlining the process for everyone from a marketing manager that holds a few events a year, to large events teams that organise hundreds of events,” said Mahesh Ramachandra, Head of Product here at ORM London. “By combining the best of enterprise and consumer technology Event Check-in makes the process easy while also creating a great first impression for attendees.”
Following an event, information from the iPads is synched to the Event Check-In portal and all data is consolidated to give an analysis of the event. A customised guest feedback module that integrates valuable customer feedback is one of several enhancements currently in development.
“By connecting the iPad and SocketMobile scanner, a world first, and combining them with SMS and live cloud data Event Check-in is at the cutting edge of connective devices,” continued Ramachandra. “At ORM London we want to continue to push the boundaries and Event Check-in is the first of a number of innovative apps we have planned to help businesses in various industries.”
Event Check-in is now available on the Apple app store, and trial accounts can be set up by contacting ORM directly.
