Real-Time Lead Retrieval, Rich Prospect Intelligence, and Social Integration Help Newly Launched atEvent Transform Events for Corporate Marketers

Mobile event app suite provides marketers with easy-to-use solutions enabling them to maximize the impact of their corporate events.

SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly launched mobile event apps company atEvent, today introduced an innovative suite of mobile solutions that enable corporate marketers to maximize the impact of their events. The apps provide corporate marketers with easy-to-use, event-specific solutions that drive customer engagement and have real-time lead retrieval and lead nurturing functionality.    

atEvent enters the market during a transformational time in the corporate event space. Marketing spend in the event space is projected to rise at double the pace of the U.S. economy¹ and 30 percent of marketers over the past year alone have indicated that they've seen the highest ROI from events and seminars².

However, despite this acceleration marketers continue to face the challenge of being unable to retrieve event-driven leads quickly and take action on them. Lead decay resulting from events is at an all-time high with 71 percent of companies indicating they are unable to take advantage of leads they generate, and only 27 percent of leads ever being contacted at all³.

This has created a greater demand than ever before for an easy-to-use mobile event solution that corporate marketers can depend on to improve engagement, retrieve and nurture leads quickly leveraging their CRM solutions to drive higher ROI from their events.

atEvent apps are tailored to help corporate marketers maximize the impact of their events by driving engagement utilizing industry leading mobile event functionality and enabling real-time lead retrieval and nurturing. atEvent apps deliver enhanced attendee experiences with relevant, real-time information, connections and a range of interactive features at every step of the way -- pre-event, during-event, and post-event.

The apps are being used by corporate marketers to add another dimension to all kinds of events, including sales and marketing events, partner events, product launches, developer events, training events, recruiting events, fund raising events and webinars.

Among the many features of atEvent apps that are being leveraged by corporate marketers include:

  • Real-Time Prospect Follow-Up: atEvent apps provide real-time lead retrieval and enhance prospect profiles via CRM and marketing automation integration with leading technology vendors, enabling corporate marketers to improve prospect follow-up and conversions after their event.  For a list of CRM and marketing automation vendors that are fully integrated with atEvent please visit www.at-event.com.

We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
