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.
  • Social Media Integration: Corporate marketers are using atEvent apps to connect their social media channels and drive mobile app engagement before, during and after their event. atEvent apps are fully integrated with the most comprehensive list of social platforms available on the market today, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr, Google+, Instagram and Foursquare.  
  • Mobile Event Marketing Platform: atEvent apps allows companies to use pre-approved mobile event templates (legal, brand, privacy and IT approved) in multiple languages and integrated into their CRM, marketing automation and event registration systems.
  • Real-Time Prospect Feedback: With real-time communications, polling functionality and event buzz features, corporate marketers can use atEvent apps to completely transform how they engage with attendees at their events.
  • Rich Prospect Intelligence: atEvent apps provide corporate marketers with detailed insights around prospect needs and interests, allowing them to optimize their follow up strategies after the event.

"With the launch of atEvent, corporate marketers can look forward to taking their events to an entirely new level of customer engagement and bottom line impact," said Uzair Dada, CEO of atEvent. "With atEvent apps, event planners, marketers and sales personnel now have a fully-integrated mobile solution that enables them to drive meaningful interactions with targeted content and capture real-time leads and prospect feedback at their events."

"Dice has been around for the last 20 years. We have been helping tech professionals find new jobs and career opportunities," explained Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
