Overall Satisfaction with CrowdCompass

We utilize CrowdCompass for our largest meetings to be a resource for our attendees, including programming, notifications, exhibit reference list, attendee list, etc. We also sync posts to a Social Wall, which tends to be popular with our attendees, since they can post and share and enjoy seeing it on a large screen. Overall, the app is user friendly and intuitive. There are a lot of tools that can be used and we plan push notifications with our marketing and IT teams. A good suggestion is to have a marketing /notification schedule prior to the event. Another opportunity to make revenue is to sell banner ads in the app; such as selling a banner to be displayed each day or rotate them depending on the number of sponsors/exhibitors.
  • Push Notifications
  • Syncing with Social Media tools
  • Gameification
  • More customization for the look and feel
  • Faster update times; however, this could be dependent on the amount of data listed
  • Adding customizations like fonts, backgrounds, etc.
  • Saving money on signage
  • Saving money on program books; which is also helping us be more green and environmentally friendly
  • Opportunity to increase profits with branding and advertising space
Personally, I do not know many competitors of CrowdCompass, since they seem to be the industry standard/leader. CrowdCompass was chosen since our organization utilizes Cvent's registration software. We also require a single sign on and require users to make a username and password on our site in order to receive access to papers and other information. Cvent and CrowdCompass allow just that.

CrowdCompass is well-suited for large conferences with multiple technical sessions/talks, as well as large trade shows, where paper programs are almost obsolete and the app is used as a directory for attendees and exhibitors.

Personally, I would recommend the app for larger conferences, as it has the capability of doing polling/surveys after technical sessions, helping you gather feedback in real time.
