VenueWize Debuts Wireless Check-in App
The new VenueWize wireless app enables events hosts to check guests into events while capturing important data. The system aggregates RSVPs, ticket sales and attendee information from several channels, including online sales, event partners and—coming in May--ticket sales on Facebook. Guest information is compiled onto one real-time guest list accessed by door hosts via iPad or iPhone; Android capability will be available shortly, the developers say. Event hosts can adjust show flow by tracking guest arrival, and post-event can see which event partners brought in the most guests and when.
