Mobile app developer Quickmobile released a new free app on Tuesday, designed to facilitate the gathering and comparison of technology capabilities during site inspections. TechSpec, which was created with industry experts Corbin Ball and James Spellos, serves as a technology checklist for planners. The app provides fields to enter the most common technology-related venue specifications, and it allows planners to document other general hotel information and add notes and photos. Planners can then build detailed venue profiles and ratings, and share that information with others. "With the help of QuickMobile, we have taken everything that meeting planners would normally do on paper and put it on a mobile app," said Ball. "It's a gift to the industry to get the conversation going," he added, with respect to the decision to offer the app for free. TechSpec is available for Android and Apple iOS devices at quickmobile.com/techspec.
