The process of organizing a meeting from inception to departure requires strong communication and collaboration between all parties. Event organizers and catering/convention services work through multiple touch points that, when not fully acted on, can result in missteps or errors. Communication and collaboration issues can easily end in disaster without careful execution.
Most large organizations run dozens, if not hundreds, of meetings and events a year. Many of them, include large customer events, sales meetings, and incentive trips, are centrally managed, while others, like departmental planning sessions, training programs, and employee onboarding sessions, occur on a smaller scale and come together through more decentralized planning. All of these events are part of the company’s larger meeting portfolio, and therefore, need to stay on brand and on message. Over the course of the year, people will move from one meeting or event to another based on their role in the organization and will expect a consistent experience everywhere they go.
Extensibility refers to a system’s ability to gain new functionality without any material effect on the underlying structure and data flow. For meetings and events, it can be defined as the ability to grow in scale, scope, and capacity. The right multi-event platform will adapt to your varied event ecosystem and be just as extensible as your events and meetings. For example, it should be able to grow your mobile app usage from a dozen meetings to hundreds, and move back and forth from complex, full-featured event apps to simpler ones.
The more events and meetings you plan, the greater number of people and teams you’ll need managing specific events. Some will be under your authority and some will not. There will also be people at different operational levels responsible for different parts of the event. How do you ensure that everyone that needs the mobile app has access to it and that they use it according to company policies and brand standards?
In today’s world, event content changes rapidly, placing even more pressure on your team which is already operating at maximum capacity to keep pace and keeps your participants up to date. What you need is an event management app solution that’s not only extensible and efficient to deploy across your team and organization but also as easy to use as your smartphone.
