Active Network, a provider of online registration and meetings management tools, has launched a suite of mobile solutions, fully integrating them into all of the company's Business Solutions platforms. Downloadable mobile apps are available for meeting managers, suppliers and attendees. Managers and suppliers can use the apps to access relevant data while on-site or in transit, while the attendee app includes features such as event scheduling, local-attraction search, surveys, messaging amongst attendees, gamification and QR-code-based contact exchange, which works in tandem with coded name badges. "Everything we've created for mobile solutions is about getting rapid access to information," explained Anthony Miller, vice president of strategy for the Active Network Business Solutions division. "We've never been about creating technology for flair, for the bells and whistles." Active currently is demonstrating the new mobile suite at the IMEX global exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany. It is available now for customers.
