StarCite, a provider of meetings management technology, was granted a U.S. patent last week entitled "System and Method for Enterprise Event Marketing and Management Automation." The patent gives the company exclusive rights to its automated attendee registration and management technology platforms. Through the software, planners can customize meeting-specific registration pages; communicate with attendees regarding activities, confirmations and logistics; and capture attendee data and preferences, among other actions.
