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

GruupMeet was created so meetings can focus on people instead of constantly changing logistics. Our platform helps organizations streamline and execute meetings. While 80% of meeting planning processes are performed manually, specific aspects are more tedious and critical to the overall experience, AND too complex for the inbox!

What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?

Corporate and association, both large and small – particularly high-stakes meetings and multi-day events. Whether you need extra assurance for a VIP program of 100 doctors or an alternative solution to reduce paper and on-site expenses, GruupMeet is the go-to solution.

What does your tool help event planners do better?

GruupMeet brings all the major parties together on one platform. Organizations can save thousands of dollars per meeting from operational efficiencies and planners save precious time spent on tedious tasks. Those savings can go towards things that really matter and impact employee engagement… Our web app monitors communication and changes in logistics in real-time.

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

Unlike other solutions GruupMeet is comprehensive and works within the way meetings are being planned because it was designed with industry knowledge. GruupMeet was built from the ground up to provide convenience for everyone, from planners to attendees. Our sophisticated platform focuses on the key details that are important for operating and managing successful meetings versus featuring lots of components! So GruupMeet doesn’t include tools for things companies likely automate or track with various apps like registration, check-in, maps, etc.

Some key features include:

● Unlimited planner accounts/permissions for collaboration
● Easy Excel upload for live and continuous tracking of VIPs and arriving and departing flights
● Convenient notifications (SMS and/or email) to individuals, departments or all attendees
● All attendee contact and travel info

What is the single coolest feature of your product?

Our “Platinum Planner” and #gruuppie customers tell us it’s the user interface experience… GruupMeet is easy to setup and use. It easily imports and exports, and functions within planner’s processes. Training or detailed support is not necessary. BUT we’re happy to help and offer dedicated account support.

Anything else we need to know?

Mobile app coming soon:

●      Enable participants to directly contact planners, view meeting schedules, documents and receive instant change notifications

●      Provide planners with extensive analytics on participant behavior for valuable post meeting insight

 

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.
