What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?

Attend.com was built to map to the event planners process and make everything from planning, to managing to following up with attendees easier. Our integrations with Salesforce and Blackbaud’s Rasier’s Edge make us especially helpful for event planners looking to show or improve the way their events drive organization goals and ROI.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
Event planners and organizers in Higher-Ed, Non-Profit, SMB and Enterprise of all verticals

What does your tool help event planners do better?

There have been 4 core activities that Attend.com has been particularly good at. However, in June we are rolling out big changes to the software.

How is your tool different from/better than the competition?

Attend.com allows the event planner to manage either very simple events with straight-forward registration and check-in, or much more complicated events. An example of a more complicated event would be an alumni reunion weekend where registrants can check in to the overal event and/or multiple sub-events throughout the weekend.

What is the single coolest feature of your product?

VIP check in alerts that notify staff when your keynote, boss or favorite customer arrives

 

 

This weekly series spotlights a new tech tool that is designed to help make planning events much more seamless. Whether it’s using event software to track every detail from start to finish or mobile apps that deliver content to attendees’ fingertips, these technologies allow planners to divert their stress to more critical issues like deciding which napkin color looks best.
