ATIV Software allows attendees the ability to manage, personalize conference experience
Alexandria, Va., April 3, 2012 — A new mobile application released today will allow attendees at the Society for Human Resource Management’s
2012 Annual Conference & Exposition to navigate the Society’s signature event attracting more than 10,000 HR and business leaders.
ATIV Software of Santa Rosa, Calif., developed the app for the
annual conference of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), being held June 24-27 in Atlanta. The free app gives attendees access to the conference schedule of speakers, speaker information, maps and exhibitor details, as well as tools to connect.
“With thousands of attendees and hundreds of educational sessions and speakers, SHRM’s annual conference is the place to be for HR professionals,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM. “We want to make the experience as easy and convenient as possible for attendees. The new conference app incorporates all the tools our members need to successfully experience the world’s largest HR conference.”
The SHRM 2012 annual conference app is based on ATIV’s EventPilot 6.0. It is available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.
“The conference attendee’s experience is the most important contributing factor when we design EventPilot conference apps,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “SHRM attendees will save time by easily managing the program interactively on their mobile device. The EventPilot conference app, with keyword filters and schedule synchronization, is an invaluable tool in today’s conference experience.”
