GenieConnect, a digital solutions provider for the events industry, released its 2.7 software upgrade, which brings new features to its event apps, Web portals, content management system, meetings management tool and a new contributor portal for exhibitors.
Accessible to all GenieConnect clients, the new software version introduces the upgraded GenieBuilder content management system, which boasts a cleaner, simplified interface and faster infrastructure through the addition of a widget library, easy-to-use app and website builders and more visualization options to show how the solution will look once completed.
“We are confident and committed in providing a truly innovative yet effortless experience for all our clients, and we plan to continue to enhance and add new additions to our solutions,” said Michael Douglas, business development director, GenieConnect. “The upgrade will not only give event organizers more visibility and control over their event participation solutions, but also improve their user experience, interaction and opportunities.”
New exhibitor and speaker portals have been designed for contributors to manage their own profile, materials and diaries, allowing users to gain more from event attendance while easing the coordination and management of exhibitors and speakers for event organizers.
Enhancements to gamification intend to drive desired behavior and increase engagement through games, trophies and thresholds, providing increased options for implementing games at events. The feature is highly configurable, allowing organizers to set up games involving goals for check-ins, attendance, profile updates, networking activity, providing feedback amongst many others.
Further functionality in MeetingsConnect has also been incorporated to support increasing types of meeting programs, which allows organizers to implement meeting quotas for attendees, enabling users to select a ‘per-day’ or ‘per-event’ target when setting up meetings.
Advances in QR Code scanning allow innovative users to enhance the event, which can be time-bound to register session attendance, gamification check-ins and exhibition visits.
