Top 20 New Features of 2018

2018 Event Management App Features

Our app developers LOVE working in the Event Management industry because it’s constantly changing and presenting new challenges. This year was no exception and we were hard at work gathering feedback, designing and launching new app features to ensure our Event App software stayed ahead of the curve!

In 2018, you focused on “microlearning”, “member engagement” “gamification” and “activity tracking”. So, event organizers scurried to disparate vendors to take advantage of features x, y and z. They sent their members and attendees to this website for this and that website for that – then exported data from here and imported data there – only to manage the event and pull reports from somewhere else entirely. (We’re exhausted just thinking about it!)

Being on the cutting edge seemed like screaming from the rooftops how you found new software to solve some issue you had at last year’s conference. How cool, right?!

But, in reality, being a leader in the Event Management industry meant something different.

At Results@Hand, we strategically designed and added a ton of new features so you can have everything you need – from registration to reporting – all in one place.

Here’s a look at some of our favorite additions from 2018:

1. Online Registration
