It happens again and again. You do everything you can to get your members to attend your conference, yet many never show up. Ask yourself- did you really do everything you could? Probably not.

See how the use of BLE technology and our Connect feature allowed us to do just that.
When it comes to productivity, we tend to work better with the electronic devices we are familiar with. Bring your own device programs now allow employees to use their own devices just for that reason. Furthermore, these personal devices are integrating with wearable technology, which provide additional utility to the user. With these trends in mind, we suggest associations to consider how mobile friendly their content is for members to access and how the BYOD concept can be applied.

While we can’t predict the device distribution of your members, we’re often asked “Should I launch an Android app or an i-device app?” We say don’t limit yourself! Launch association apps for all of your needs regardless of device type or OS, with Android, iOS, and HTML5.
