Tech Tuesday highlights the best and brightest ideas in the tech world. ABCey would like to recognize these up and coming technologies for their innovative ideas and impact on the event world! This week we want to introduce you to Guidebook, a website which allows you to create your own mobile guide app!
Events can be hectic and overwhelming, especially for the event planner. Luckily, Guidebook was made to make event planners’ – and their guests’ – lives easier. Guidebook allows event planners to create high-quality mobile guide apps for their events. Perks include low cost (there’s a free version!), real-time updates, sharp and intuitive design, knowledgable support, and less paper waste!
How it works: Guidebook Gears allows event planners to easily add and update content to their personalized event guide. With an online form, filling out all the information for an event is straightforward, especially when information can be imported from a spreadsheet or an iCal feed. Logos and custom icons can be added for each section and multiple editors can work on the guide. Guests can effortlessly plan their personal event schedule and receive reminders when an event in their schedule is coming up. They can also connect with other attendees using Guidebook’s contact cards so all of their networking will be productive and efficient.
Why we love it: Guidebook is so easy to use and fits within whatever budget we are given! Since a majority of our guests bring their smart phones to our events, we can easily provide them with information, such as schedules, maps, pictures, and logos, without having to print a single piece of paper. Anytime we make a change, our attendees receive the update instantly and are even notified of the changes when they open the app. Can it get any easier?!
