New Turnkey, Online Meeting Management Application Hits the Market

Morrisville, NC (PressExposure) December 16, 2008 -- Brian Rivers, president of Centrifuge Media, Inc., a Morrisville, North Carolina-based, full service multimedia, audiovisual and technology solutions company, has announced that the company is now offering a unique solution to handling the challenges in meeting management through an innovative, cost-effective application called Event Horizon. Created by Centrifuge Media, Inc., this essential tool tracks and controls all aspects of meeting management and execution.

Event Horizon is a Web-based program that creates a large database and puts the user in complete control of the data. It’s completely customizable in every aspect from budgeting and generating emails to data tracking and post-meeting analysis. Event Horizon is designed to solve problems often created by the minutiae of details necessary to organize and conduct events and ultimately provides added value to the client – characteristics that other meeting management programs lack. This meeting technology solution conquers today’s logistical challenges while saving time and money and maximizing the end client’s ROI.

Event Horizon allows each full service meeting solutions provider to customize every aspect of meeting management, planning and implementation through an online process and easy to use graphic interface. Specifically, the application controls content and access to information with single-administrator editing privileges, allowing different permission levels to be set, and creates registration Web sites, confirmation and administration notification emails, reports, user permissions and security levels, and input forms. Event Horizon also allows users to easily modify forms with additional built in coding functionality, view and edit captured data and send standardized or customized reports and emails to multiple recipients for event tracking and follow-up, and provide clients with data-rich reports for targeted follow-up.

Two optional features coincide with the Event Horizon application: Arecibo and Polaris. Users can employ each application independently, or can combine the applications as a package.

Arecibo is an attendee tracking, data capture and management application. The optional application instantly verifies participant registration by using RFID technology imbedded in event badges. This technology greatly speeds the registration process, manages traffic flow and Continuing Education Credits, and tracks attendance and elapsed time automatically as participants pass each event portal, attend breakout or continuing education (CE) sessions or other sponsored events without requiring sign-in or human observation. More impressively, this tool gathers specific data which lets meeting solution providers know what did or didn’t work, increasing efficiency for future meetings, and delivers aggregate and attendee level data to clients for more precise calculation of ROI.

Polaris is a flight and weather monitoring link to the FAA. It enhances the event experience by allowing attendees to refer to large, on-site displays or kiosks to monitor up-to-the-minute flight information, including delays, cancellations and weather conditions in the departure and arrival cities. This optimizes pickup and drop-off logistics planning while supporting the client’s corporate and event branding efforts through customization of displays.

Benefits of Event Horizon: • Fully customizable, easy-to-use applications help events run more smoothly • Scales to any size • Resolves on-site issues immediately • Provides authorized users with access to data from anywhere with an Internet connection, at any time • Easily installed Open Source software carries no hardware costs, hidden maintenance fees or need for additional support staff • Secure online solution hosted on your servers or on Centrifuge Media’s • Decreases opportunity for human error • Dedicated Client Partner assigned to each account, backed by responsive service and phone support • Streamlines registration process for customers and prospects • Real-time, spatial RFID monitoring and data capture of attendees help target and manage customer/prospect interactions automatically throughout the event • Tracks, reports and stores attendee-level data to confirm regulatory compliance, such as for CE classes • Leverages opportunities for corporate/event branding and event messaging through integrated Web site and email functionality • Robust reporting capability helps measure results and justify marketing spends
