Event Tech of the Week: @BuzzReg
Today, we’re talking about: Buzz Registration
Company/Tool Name: BUZZ Registration – BUZZ Tech Suite
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
The BUZZ Tech Suite streamlines the on-site event registration and name badge scanning process. Gone are the days of clunky scanners and basic barcodes. While the Tech Suite can easily read QR Codes via our tablet-based technology, it also offers RFID chip reading technology for a smooth, efficient scanning experience. Attendees simply walk by the iOS or Android device (typically iPads) and swiftly tap their badge to check-in/out of sessions. Both QR code and RFID scanning provide instant access to cloud-based reporting provides planners with their meeting attendance data in real-time.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
BUZZ’s check-in and badge scanning is best suited for both small and large corporate meetings and conferences, and our lead retrieval is meant for tradeshows of any kind or size.
What does your tool help event planners do better?
The BUZZ Tech Suite eliminates the need for any manual tracking of attendance at any event. With our permission-based red light/green light technology, planners can also limit access to breakouts, paid sessions, special events, etc. with the power of each attendee’s name badge. Continuing education credit information is also instantly captured, eliminating all manual tracking and verification.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
By aligning with BUZZ Registration, clients are not just receiving a product to use at their event – they gain a team of meeting professionals that will customize a service and technology bundle to meet the requirements of each individual program. Our product can be used when any registration platform is utilized for the registration process, and as an added bonus BUZZ offers full-service support to planners via our a la carte menu of services. This allows planners to fill in any gaps or needs in their own personal planning, registration, or on-site needs while working with one vendor for the implementation of all their on-site technology, registration and hospitality services.
What is the single coolest feature of your product?
Our check-in feature offers the ability to simply check-in or to SIGN-IN with an electronic signature on an iOS or Android tablet. The corresponding report includes the actual digital signature and date/time stamp to replace paper trails of contracts or regulatory attendance.
