Additionally, the dashboard has graphic reports that display the number of attendees that have checked-in.
Bizzabo’s event management software helps event marketers to create powerful in-person experiences at events. The software’s website editor helps you to build a site or embed widgets for speakers, agenda or exhibitors. This can be created into an event app to enable personalized schedules for the attendees. Bizzabo classifies the guest list on the basis of speakers, attendees, and VIPs, and can be used to send personalized emails.
Boomset with its event management software helps to improve efficiency on-site at an event. The app helps attendees customize and automate their check-in experience on site by simply scanning their QR codes at the check-in counter. When attendees register for an event, their data is imported into Boomset. This helps the events team to access raw attendee data, target prospects, and more. The software allows attendees to keep a check on the available seats in real-time so that strategic selections on meetings can be made on the grounds of seating availability.
At present, ITN offers online registration, access control, tracking, analytics, etc. The badge printing and scanning application is one of the most comprehensive solutions in the market and pulls data from badges to enable quicker check-ins and other functionality.

Moreover, updates in the meeting agenda can also be conveyed through in-app notifications. All of this data can be synced with the attendee’s calendar to increase the chance of meeting acceptance and participation. Users can also generate custom and on-demand reports to help event marketers attribute value to these interactions.
CrowdCompass is an effective event planning application that helps event professionals manage beacons on-site in order to communicate seamlessly with attendees. With the help of beacon technology, it gives personalized alerts based on where a person is standing. For instance, it gives notifications to attendees on location and reminders on subsequent breakout sessions.
